The shelves are looking empty in our stores and cleaning products, toilet paper is hard to find. All Georgia schools are now closed, and we really don’t know what’s next. With each passing day we have so much coming at us and it can be scary. We know that the best thing to do right now is to make sure we’re all taking great care of each other and ourselves. Most importantly, taking care of our immune systems so that if you do come in contact with the virus, your body can quickly fight it!
Here’s a quick list of things you can do to boost your immunity:
🙌 GET ADJUSTED. We will continue business as usual over the following weeks because we know how important a strong immune system is to fight any virus your body comes in contact with – an adjustment alone can boost your immune response by 200%! Now is when your body needs chiropractic more than ever. We want you to know we’re taking extra precautions at Covington Family Chiropractic to keep you safe. Healthcare is important to us at CFC.
We are consistently wiping down all surfaces within our office.
We have also removed all the toys 🧸 that aren’t easily wiped down to sanitize and bring back out when things have cleared. So, we apologize ahead of time if your kiddos favorite toys are missing when they come in!
😬 Soap All surfaces and tables are cleaned consistently and we have organic wipes throughout the office if you feel more comfortable doing so yourself.
🗓 We have spread out our schedule so we can keep the waiting room free of people as much as possible. Come in, get an (immune boost) great adjustment and head home!
🤗 During this time, let’s all do our part to combat what we can control and keep using chiropractic to strengthen your immune system. There’s no better time than now to ensure your body has the ability to adapt to any virus and exposure out there.
🥦 Feed your body the good stuff! More greens AND less processed + sugary foods.
🙌 Keep your family members well-adjusted! If you are interested in having a family member adjusted these coming weeks, that is not a current patient; call the office so we can discuss a plan for them, especially kids! We know there is serious need to keep immune systems boosted and Covington Family Chiropractic wants to be there to help! 💟
🏃 Get plenty of exercise and outdoors. Even if your workouts go from the gym to home, or happen in the home itself, movement is so calming to your brain + great to boost your immune system! Make sure to break a sweat, because that’s how our body gets things moving on out!
🌱 Supplement your system. It is always a great idea to increase your Vitamin C and D intake.
💆 Manage your stress levels. In times like this, our stress levels sky rocket
🚀. Stress is known to cause 90% of all illness and will only dramatically decrease our body’s ability to FIGHT off attacks from virus. Amidst all the unknown and chaos right now, try and find peace. Meditate, stay away from social media, love on your people, and stay calm.
😴 Get plenty of restful sleep. Your immune system requires large amounts of energy, so it depends on adequate sleep to function at full capacity. We recommend increasing your sleep each night by 30-60 minutes!
👏 And of course, wash your hands!
We’re in this together, and we’re here for you.
