No, you’re not just getting old….

But Yes, you do need to do your little exercises!

I get it. With my fortieth birthday on the horizon, I had fleeting moments of panic wondering if some of the random aches and pains I experienced from time to time just meant that I was getting old. 

Thankfully I remembered, that's just a mindset. Not the reality. 

Your Body doesn’t have to deteriorate with age, in fact a Harvard research Study demonstrated that we can build muscle well into our 90’s

Unfortunately just doing aerobic exercise is not adequate, and that includes hiking, biking and cross country skiing.

Use it or loose it!

Use it well…even better!

How Many Wellness Moments do you miss out on?

How many wellness moments do you miss in a day trying to make it fancier than it needs to be?

The other day, I almost missed out on 3, all before 9:00 in the morning.

My body was telling me that it needed more high output cardio...but my schedule was not agreeing. I don't have any more time this week, I thought as I was walking my dog...up hill.

5 Fabulous Things you can do for your Feet

1. Strengthen your Ankles
It isn’t often that I meet someone that hasn’t rolled their ankle at some point in their life. One incident is enough to inhibit the muscles that stabilize the ankle. A weak ankle leads to poor balance and ultimately a faulty foundation for the rest of the body. Re-training these muscles even if it years later can propel you to feeling stable, agile and strong. 

Could this be an Amazing Year?

In the first week of the New Year I received several emails from my favorite wellness bloggers full of energy ~ declaring that this was going to be an amazing year! 

And yes, this CAN be an amazing year...

I know that feeling. I have felt it many times before. That feeling of "this is going to be an amazing year…I’m sure of it!", and then the dust settles and the weeks go by and sometimes it’s an amazing year and other times it’s not.
