Many people are under the impression that living an optimal life means they are living without any feelings of stress, without any pressure, without any anxiety, without any bad feelings whatsoever. This is not realistic, and it’s just not true. If we never felt bad, we would never know what feeling good meant.
Life is all about contrasts. If we never felt stress, we would never know what peace felt like. If we never felt pressure, we would never know what tranquility felt like. If we never experienced illness or injury, we would never know what being healthy truly meant.
In a nutshell how we redefine optimal living is by having a high level of adaptability in your physiology, by living in a place of balance and homeostasis. This means that we have a high level of adaptability in our biology and physiology. Optimal living does not mean the absence of trials and tension—it means we are operating from a solid foundation of composed readiness to confront anything that comes our way.
When the proverbial “stuff” of life hits the fan, we do not go into states of anxiety, fear, and depression. Instead we plug into our powerful storage of adaptability and are able to process and integrate those stresses and challenges in real time, which allows us to continue moving forward toward living the life of our dreams.
As we integrate our experiences in life, as we being to increase the capacity of our nervous system (through chiropractic adjustments, meditation, personal growth, exercise, gratitude, etc.), our ability to adapt to challenges and stresses and curveballs propels to new levels. It is something we must continually work on, build on, and prioritize in our lives if we wish to achieve this state of optimal living.
And we are here to help you do just that!
