Adapting Response


Is it stress that affects your health? Or, your response to stress that matters the most?


First, what creates your stress? Traffic, work, finances, relationships, the past, the future?


Second, how often do you stress? Daily, weekly, monthly?


Third, how does it affect you? Anger, depressed, anxiety, fear, losing sleep, holding tension, getting sick?


Lastly, how do you respond? Over eat, over sleep, over work, alcohol, nicotine, recreational drugs, escapism?


Or, do you workout? Meditate and breath? Write, read, listen to music? Talk to someone?


How you respond to stress may have a greater impact on your health than the stress itself. When stress occurs, at times, you can confront it and seek a solution. At times, eliminate it and let it go


Ultimately, you have the ability to choose & adapt your response to stress!

Treating Sciatica

Warning: Traffic Drivers

Here on Oahu traffic is a part of daily life. Whether it's a 30 minute upwards to an hour or hour and a half, it's adding sitting time to your day!
Sciatica is a common condition that affects many that have to sit in traffic on top of sitting at work! It is recognized as a pain that begins in the buttocks area, often on one side, that radiates down into the glute (buttocks) and down the back of the leg. It's literally a "pain in the butt"!

Pain Proof your Commute

Here on Oahu traffic is unfortunately inevitable! Here are tips to consider to prevent or reduce back pain from your driving:


1. Empty back pocket - Mostly for men; remove wallet from back pocket to avoid tilting hips and straining lower back.


2. Posture in - Try to avoid bending from the spine when getting into your vehicle.


3. Adjust seat back angle - Set angle at a comfortable position where the ears, shoulders, and hips are in alignment.
