With the holidays right around the corner we understand that stress is only going to come natural to most (By the way, did you know Chiropractic Care can help with that?). But, since it is the holiday season most people are also in the spirit of giving! That being said, it is proven that giving to a specific charity boosts happiness. This could play a major role in why, despite the stress of the holidays, almost everyone loves this time of year! Giving gifts to others just makes us feel good! In fact, during MRI studies on the brain it is shown that the midbrain, that part of the brain responsible for cravings and pleasure, lights up. The best part about giving is that there is no correlation in happiness vs the actual amount of money you give. What makes you most happy is the consistency you give, along with where the donation is going (is it personal?).
This season West End Chiropractic and Wellness is helping you give back by hosting a Food Drive for the local food shelf and social service agency in St Louis Park, MN, STEP. Bring in your non-perishable food items to the clinic and we will get you entered into a drawing to win an Amazon Kindle Fire.
Your donation, along with the serotonin boost you will get from your adjustments is going to having smiling from ear to ear all day!
