I knew that life would be different after moving to California, and I have really loved every bit of it. It’s so different from where I grew up and have lived all my life in the Eastern portion of the United States. I go to a chiropractor in Carmichael CA that I have ended up marrying. He lives a good life, and he has taught me how to take better care of myself. After living in a state where it is cold for a long time each season, I now live in a state where people get outside in the sun to get exercise and feel better. It is so nice and I have felt right at home with all of it.
What are the things that struck me when I move to California was seeing how many people are out on the road every day. There are people walking and riding their bikes everywhere. Where I lived before, it’s pretty real, and it takes a long time to walk anywhere. So many people don’t do it. Most people spend their time in their car going to wherever they need to go. And because the winter season is so long because of the snow and the bitter cold temperatures, a lot of people don’t get out for at least half of the year. That was normal to me while I live there.
Once I moved to my new state, I decided that I wanted to get out of it more too. I found it really help the way that I feel everyday. I began to feel happier. I know part of this was getting more vitamin D because I was out in the sunlight everyday. But it also felt good to get out and stretch my legs after work, walk through the neighborhood and get to know my neighbors, and even lose a little bit of weight. Not long after I moved here, I started going to a chiropractor, and that is when I met my new husband.
