Your New Years Resolution Will Fail With Out These 5 Rules

Your New Years Resolution Will Fail With Out These 5 Rules

Be Practical 

  • Having a practical goal is one of the best ways to ensure success in achieving your resolution. Now that’s not to discourage you to set the bar higher, but let’s be honest with each other, when has it paid off for you in the past? If you’re like the majority of people who’ve set a unrealistic goal in the past, the answer to that question is more than likely never. Wether your goal is to improve your health, increase your freedom, or simply be more active you need to start with a practical goal in mind.

Be Specific 

  • Building off of being practical about your goals, you have to be specific as well. For example if your goal is to be more active and your current activity level is zero, then set a practical goal that you can achieve on a daily basis. That goal can range from walking to the corner store to grab your morning coffee or taking a 10 minute walk every day. The key here is just do something and be specific about what that something is!

Be Consistent 

  • The first 90 days of your resolution is going to be the most important 90 days of the year. I cannot stress it enough how important it is to be as consistent as you can especially in the beginning of your journey. It might look like you’re about to climb a really tall mountain in the beginning however just like you were a kid and putting pennies in a piggy bank, those 10 minutes today and those little breaks add up over time. Before you know it, you’ll be looking back at where you started and you’ll be proud and even more motivated to keep going.

Be Proactive

  • It may sound simple but being proactive is no easy task especially on the days where you just feel like you’re getting nowhere. It is especially important on those days that you just get up and do something. even if it is a 10th of what your typical good day looks like, doing something is always better than doing nothing. With that said, the question is how do you be proactive with all the other things going on in your life? My strategy is simple. Usually there is nothing that can stop me from getting up in the morning and going to grab a coffee. So I use that existing behavior and incorporate it my new goal by walking to the store instead of driving down the road to get a quick cup. This also plays into your psychology as well by giving yourself a little reward every time you do something. We have all heard of Pavlov’s dog and although we are more sophisticated creatures than dogs, we still have that animal brain deep within our cortex that can be manipulated with a simple reward.

Be Accountable 

  • Being accountable doesn’t mean that you need to put yourself down not getting that workout in or skipping a day. In fact it means the opposite, because being negative only set you back even further. Accountability guide you over the hall on the term by keeping track of your activity. Our phones and watches tend to do those things for us our days however there is still something to be said for taking out a pen and marking a star on the date of a physical calendar to reinforce the habit of getting out there and doing something every day. The circles back to you connecting the dots quite literally after you’ve accomplished three months worth of routine.

4 Reasons Why Rolling on your muscles is not enough.

4 Reasons Why Rolling on your muscles is not enough.

  1. Although foam rolling gives you that “good hurt” feeling it only hits the surface. Any brand claiming that their roller breaks up scar tissue, releases trigger points, or muscle adhesions is simply delivering you fake news. The current body of science shows that rolling only provides temporary relief.
  2. Rolling around on a ball or a roller doesn’t always help and in fact can have adverse affects. The more you roll, the more your body accommodates. This means that the temporary relief you’re getting will actually decrease leaving you wanting more.
  3. Rolling does not address the underlying cause of movement dysfunction. Many people who have mobility problems will hop on a roller or pound their body with a massage ball and not realize the root of their mobility deficit is the joint and not the muscle. So again, rolling is not getting deep enough to change anything at the level of the joint.
  4. In order to target specific muscles you need to have a small surface area however every roller on the market is as wide as it is useless. People will suggest a lacrosse ball or massage ball to target the smaller areas but again, rolling is like taking an otc pain killer. It does not address the root of the mobility deficit.

What are the major symptoms of the twist?

Leg Pain
Knee Pain
Heel Pain

Neck Pain 
Shoulder Pain
Back Pain
Hip Pain

Frozen Shoulders
Sciatica
Plantar Fasciitis

Pinched Nerves
Tendinitis

The Twist is mostly undetected in people because they may not be feeling pain. Some people are in the Twist because of chronic stress and do not even know it. For others, it occurs during periods of high stress at work, home, and major life events. The U-Fix Method is an effective, self treatment program for alleviating the symptoms and restoring the body back to equilibrium. It is a revolutionary development at establishing a standard of care in health and wellness.

THE PHYSICAL PATHWAY.

Stressed Relaxed 

As many of you already know, our bodies tend to take a beating. Whether you’re a weekend warrior going out for a run or someone who works long hours, you know at some point that your body will tell you when it’s had enough. It does this in the form of chronic pain and an increase in muscle tension. This is what we call the twist! Over time this stress builds up until your body is no longer talking, its yelling. One day your neck might be bothering you from a long day at work, the next you go out and decide its time to recover from a long work week and you play a round of golf. All of a sudden on the third or forth hole, your back is screaming.

 

THE MENTAL PATHWAY.

 Mental Stress

The next pathway of stress takes in the body is the mental pathway. No one is safe from mental stress. Unless you’re a Buddhist monk or a yoga guru, you are likely to run into situations of mental stress hundreds, if not thousands of times per day. The way you’ll overcome this obstacle is though the U-Fx method. Now you’re probably thinking, this sounds a little to good to be true and as a skeptic you’re not going to buy into a belief system that easy and we get that because we are skeptics too. That’s being said, due diligence is necessary to make an educated decision. With 35 years of experience in treating human beings, and science backing our claims, what more could you ask for? Still not convinced? Give us your email, and we will help you figure out  how to get rid of the twist.

 

 

THE CHEMICAL PATHWAY.

 Stress eater

At last, the mother of all stress pathways; the chemical pathway. Think nutritional pathway more so than chemical, but for now we’ll set aside semantics. Whenever we eat poorly, our body responds with inflammation. Inflation is the gateway to all disease. When we don’t eat, our body gets hangry. So what is the solution to this viscous cycle ? Nutritionists will tell you, just stop eating carbs from wheat and sure some of you out there have tried this and you may even find that might work you feel better in the short term, but as we are sure you know it’s not a long term solution. Also, life without ice cream is no way to live. Our solution is to go after the underlying cause which is the inflammatory response mechanism by resetting it. Yes, it’s that easy and that simple. Find out how you can reset your body now with the U-Fx method!

Why should you use the U-Fix to untwist every day?

Why should you use the U-Fix to untwist every day?

The application of the U-Fx and our self applied videos have been clinically shown to reduce pain, increase mobility, assist in exercise recovery and increase a sense of mental well being. Consider that roughly 80 percent of individuals in the United States have chronic back pain at one point or another.

Chronic pain can be debilitating. Not only does it limit mobility, but pain can have a significant impact on mental health and relationships.

Yet, if interpersonal harms aren’t bad enough, chronic pain comes with a heavy economic burden, leading to an average productivity loss of $802 per person per year. Currently, opioid pain medications are among the most common treatments for chronic back pain. Opioids are not only responsible for $78.5 billion in additional medical expenses each year, but over 183,000 Americans have died in the past 16 years from these prescription painkillers.
