Try these Evolve services to tackle the post-summer blues
Days at the beach, hours of sunlight, and other summer joys are behind us for another year. Not only that, but seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is in full swing for some people struggling to adjust. But that doesn’t mean the fall and upcoming winter months can’t be as enjoyable as possible.
The Power of a Massage
Many folks struggle with low moods and general lethargy when fall rolls around. According to the National Library of Medicine, enjoying a massage can enhance the body's production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that plays a key role in regulating mood and promoting feelings of well-being.
Massage therapy also provides the calming environment folks yearn for when their surroundings turn darker and colder, triggering a positive emotional and relaxed response. Of course, massage therapy also treats painful muscles while reducing stress levels.
Psychotherapy for a Fresh Fall Start
Many people go through challenging periods during the fall and winter, with school and endless holidays being just a couple of classic stressors. Psychotherapy with a registered social worker or psychotherapist can give you the tools to get through this hectic time and reset your mind.
More specifically, a therapist can help you set realistic and achievable goals for your fall reset. They can assist you in breaking down larger objectives into smaller, manageable tasks, making it easier to stay focused and motivated. Therapy can also teach you coping strategies and resilience skills, enabling you to bounce back from setbacks more effectively. Learning how to navigate challenges and setbacks is crucial for any reset or fresh start!
Chiropractic and Physiotherapy: Body Reset
Studies show colder weather can irritate your muscles and impact physical performance for everyone —- from athletes to seniors with mobility concerns. That’s why a major part of your fall reset routine should include pain management services.
Chiropractic adjustments can correct misalignments in the spine, which can improve posture and alleviate tension in the body. Better posture can also lead to reduced muscle strain and enhanced circulation, promoting a sense of physical well-being that can help you get through the colder parts of the year.
For individuals experiencing body aches and pains, chiropractic care and physiotherapy can also help manage pain through strengthening exercises and tips and accessories you can use at home. This can enhance mobility and reduce discomfort, leading to an overall improved quality of life.
