You know you need physical activity because being a couch potato has severe health risks including coronary heart disease, strokes, high blood pressure, little energy, osteoporosis and becoming part of the obesity epidemic…not to mention you wont live to see your grandchildren get married.
The first step to getting back into exercise is to stop defining the concept of physical activity so narrowly. The treadmill at the gym is not the only way to burn large amounts of calories.
Do you like things that smell good and have health benefits? Of course you do! And I do, too.
One of my greatest sources of nostalgia comes from the scent of lavender. My grandmother used to grow lavender plants in her yard when she lived in my town, Topsfield.
Do you find yourself counting the days until the weekend so you can relax and enjoy a GREAT meal? How about a free one every Thursday for the next 5 Thursdays?
PLUS, instead of inhaling your lunch, come exhale your stress.
We all say “Happy” Mother’s Day, but for me it rarely ended up being a happy day.
Like last year, I started stressing days before about what gift would be the best for my money. Then I got to the flower store late and was left to weed out a withering, semi-alive bouquet.
