Adaptation is life. If you don’t adapt to your environment, you die. You can adapt well, or you can adapt poorly. The quality of adaptation dictates the quality of your life. If you adapt well, you will have a high quality of life. Conversely, if you adapt poorly, you will experience a poor quality of life.

How do you make sure you are adapting well? Your body adapts by gaining information from your environment, processing that information, and responding to the stimulus. You take in information through your nerve system; even reflexes are perceived by your nerve system. Your nerve system consists of your brain, spinal cord, and nerves (I will refer to this grouping as the spine from now on).

Your spine is the primary perceiver, transducer, and respondent to environmental stimuli. You take in information through it, the information is sent over it, processed by it, and a response is given by and through it. Knowing this, you would probably think, “I should probably take good care of my spine.” I agree.

Now, the foundation for adaptation in the body, and the primary mover of adaptation in the body, is the spine, but it’s not the only thing. If you have interference to adaptation at any point in your spine, it needs to be addressed and corrected first. It’s a no brainer, and very easy. You should make sure that you are taking care of this foundation first, you spine, but it isn’t the only thing you should focus on.

Diet and movement also affect how well your body adapts. If you don’t do resistance training, your body won’t be as physically strong. If you feed it with poor quality food, then it will build poor quality tissues with it. If you don’t give it proper sleep it won’t produce hormones and chemicals properly. Health (adaptation) isn’t doing any one thing; it is doing many things, and doing them consistently. Consistency truly is king when it comes to your health.

You should eat well, move well, and sleep well consistently. You should also make sure your spine is in good shape on a consistent basis. It would be ideal to have your spine checked daily, but it’s simply not realistic for most people. I get checked 1-2 times per week; it’s realistic with my schedule and my life. I think you deserve the same.
