Attaining good health is often seen as an achievement in its own right. What is often neglected is the positive effect practicing good health habits can have on productivity. Caring Medical’s @brian_hutcheson takes a refreshing, holistic approach to medical care, one that centers around the individual as a whole rather than isolated health issues. It makes his expertise relevant for the body and developing one’s productivity, as health is recognized as equally integral to a positive lifestyle. Here are three of his most effective pieces of advice for those looking to enhance their everyday productivity:
1. Drink More Water
Dr. Hutcheson believes adequate hydration is one of the most effective ways to ensure the body has what it needs to complete the day’s tasks. Many don’t drink enough water but rely on caffeinated drinks to sustain energy throughout demanding activities. Dr. Hutcheson advises individuals to drink around two liters of water daily to reach the highest level of productivity.
A valuable tip for attaining hydration is to have two glasses of water after waking up each morning and another glass of water with every serving of coffee or tea. For those who can’t stand the taste (or lack thereof) of water, Hutcheson advises drinking some hot water with a hint of mint or lemon. The more pleasant taste causes essential cleansing and detoxifying effects, making the body feel renewed and more efficient in its output.
2. Maintain Good Posture
Especially throughout the recent pandemic, many are reserved to their desk chairs for hours at a time. As one of America’s leading chiropractors, Brian Hutcheson advocates for people to adopt a better posture to ensure durability in their activities. Hutcheson’s propagation of this simple yet effective technique exemplifies his desire and commitment to help people accomplish their goals regardless of their health situation.
Specifically, working environments can hamper an employee’s ability to adapt the proper posture as workers spend a vast portion of their day hunched over their desks. Improper posture can lead to poor sleep, threatening the next day’s results.
Here are some of Dr. Hutcheson’s top methods to improve posture:
- Stretch – Stretching is an excellent way to recover from muscle strain and relieve the body from niggling pains and aches. Dr. Hutcheson recommends Bruegger’s relief position to be performed for two minutes each hour when performing desk work or sitting.
- A daily routine of abdominal bracing and glute bridges can help combat the consequences of prolonged sitting, deactivating the gluteal muscles and abdominals.
- Try exercise (yoga or tai chi) – regular exercise and movement of the body can help to promote physical health and keep the body in a productive state. Cells can renew and repair with regular exercise, allowing the individual to feel fresh as they prepare to tackle a new day.

3. Look After Your Mental Health
Physical health is equally important as mental health in ensuring an individual stays on the right side of productivity. Dr. Hutcheson knows all too well the connection between physical frailty and depression; with a notable proportion of US adults relying on anti-depressant drugs to maintain positive activity, the struggling mental health of the masses has become apparent to the experienced practitioner.
Concerned by the lack of focus on mental wellbeing, Dr. Hutcheson is driven to create change. Having maintained a ten-year career in the field, the Floridian believes that regular goal setting and pursuing one’s true ambitions can cause significant upheaval in mood and mental health.
Where many adults give up on their personal goals due to feeling overwhelmed, Dr. Hutcheson advocates that individuals should stay in touch with their true feelings and practice gratitude for the positive elements of their life. This attitude forms an integral part of Hutcheson’s holistic approach, where mental and physical health influence one another, rather than operating separately. Treating an individual’s mindset as a pivotal factor in the trajectory of their overall health is one of the primary reasons Dr. Hutcheson’s clients leave his clinic more productive.
Dr. Hutcheson is making a considerable impact on the healthcare industry, and many conventional health professionals may soon take notice of the productivity he helps his clients attain. If individuals are inspired to live a life of creative action, physical vitality, and gratitude, they have the opportunity to transform their lives to see more productive outcomes on a day-to-day basis.
