Dr. Corinne: Finding Your 'Why?'; The Motivation You Need to Get and Stay Healthy

Dr. Corinne Weaver : May 22, 2020  DrCorinneWeaver.com

If you're serious about improving your health, it's important to make it easy for yourself to make good choices.

In order to get motivated you need a Why? As more time slips by, we as a nation keep gaining weight because we are emotional eaters. At first, I understand our world has changed and comfort food seems to help. But as we all know that can only go on for so long. I have had weight issues my whole life and was on multiple steroids for my asthma. Along with the steroids, I took quite a few doses of nasty pink antibiotic stuff. Well, those medications over time caused my gut to be way out of balance. Five years ago, I got my weight under control and was able to identify the foods that would cause inflammation in my body. I cheat 1-2 times a week with my favorite foods so I could make this more of a lifestyle approach. (Image: Daniel Reche-Pixabay)

By shifting how you spend little pockets of time, you'll begin to make a change that you can sustainably keep up with and add to over time.

If you're serious about improving your health, it's important to make it easy for yourself to make good choices.

Take a moment to think about what's in your refrigerator and pantry. Are there healthy options to reach for? Are those healthy options something you actually WANT to eat or do the fruits and veggies you buy usually go bad because you reach for a less healthy option instead?

When it comes to exercise, do you seek out opportunities to move your body, or avoid them at all costs? For example, when you could easily walk somewhere, would you typically opt to drive instead?

Every day we're faced with dozens of choices that can either contribute to our health or take away from it.

Fill your pantry with foods that nourish you instead of comfort foods. Plan activities that involve moving instead of sitting around. Before you know it, your lifestyle will shift.

Culturally, food has always been tied to emotions and memories.

We bake cakes to celebrate and we feast on special occasions. These ties we have to food create connections and habits that can lead to using food as a crutch when we're feeling down.

Take a moment to think about this. When you're feeling stressed, what do you eat? What about when you're feeling sad or sorry for yourself? In situations where your emotions are running high, do you turn to food as a way to comfort yourself?

Part of your journey involves deciding why you make the food choices that you do, then making conscious choices to take back that power you've given to food.

Making any change in your life is difficult, and it's even more difficult when you don't have support.

When it comes to improving your health, it's important that you have a sense of accountability, someone or something to provide you with confidence when you need it, and access to knowledge from someone who's been where you're at now.

In short, having support can make all the difference in overcoming barriers to living a healthy lifestyle.

To discuss the subject of staying motivated, we have to circle back to our earlier discussion about finding your "why."

Staying focused on long-term goals is crucial to staying on track, but so is managing short term expectations. Because when you wake up each morning, you need to know specifically what to do in order to reach those long-term goals, right?

Therefore, it's important to create a plan that you can stick to. Pre-planning a routine sets aside mental space to simply execute the plan instead of worrying about what to do next.

And again, part of sticking to this plan is having a support system to turn to when you need a little boost of confidence or accountability.

I know during times of stress, it can be hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel, but I assure you it is there. My mission is to help you get healthier without needing more medications. Be sure to listen to my No More Meds Podcast for motivation www.nomoremedspodcast.com.  If you or someone you know needs help, make sure you reach out because I am available for a telehealth call. Let's continue to share Hope in this world and get on our knees to pray to our Heavenly Father asking Him to strengthen us daily realizing it's impossible to live the Christian life without Him.

Dr. Corinne Weaver is a compassionate upper cervical chiropractor, educator, motivational speaker, mother of three, and internationally bestselling author. In 2004, she founded the Upper Cervical Wellness Center in Indian Trail, North Carolina. Over the last 13 years, she has helped thousands of clients restore their brain to-body function. When she was 10 years old, she lost her own health as the result of a bike accident that led to having asthma and allergy issues that she thought she would always have to endure. Then, after her first upper cervical adjustment at age 21, her health began to improve thanks to upper cervical care and natural herbal remedies. This enabled her to create a drug-free wellness lifestyle for herself and her family, and she also enthusiastically discovered her calling to help children heal naturally.

Dr. Weaver was named one of Charlotte Magazine's "Top Doctors" in 2016 and is now a number-one internationally bestselling author to two books: Learning How to Breathe and No More Meds. 

Upper Cervical Wellness Center is known for finding the root cause of health concerns through lifestyle changes, diagnostic testing, nutraceutical supplementation, and correction of subluxation (as opposed to just medicating the symptoms). The practice offers cutting-edge technological care at its state-of-the-art facility, including laser-aligned upper cervical X-rays, bioimpedance analysis (measures body composition), digital thermography (locates thermal abnormalities characterized by skin inflammation), and complete nutritional blood analysis, which is focused on disease prevention.
