This week, the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge theme is sot share “A Glimpse into your world” to share “things you love that makes your world spin”
Do you know what else brings joy? Health and vitality.
Do you know how I help my health nd vitality? Simple things that fortify the body:
I mentioned walking earlier in this post, which is an often overlooked or minimized exercise in our culture. I mentioned time at the pool can offer freshness without laboring over laps.
Here are two more things that I feel grateful for:
The hamstring stretch.
You can do them anywhere – while reading or viewing – and it offers a lot in return
So maybe try it right now – grab a yoga strap (or any strap) and spend a few minutes listening to your body and stretching the hamstrings. It can do wonders.
Most of us have heard of this since grade school – and in most fitness classes it is standard – but we need to be doing this more often at home – our bodies will thank us for it
I first heard about the powerful impact of daily hamstring stretching from a lady who was in the hospital. She used a bathrobe strap and stretched her hamstrings – and hips – and she talked about how they were shrinking and what the simple stretch could offer. It helped the health of her entire body (stretching promotes healthy blood flow and fluid exchange all over) and it made recovery better.
Feet up the wall (or headboard) also has powerful restorative powers.
Thanks for your visit today
Do you have any thing to add that helps with vitality and health?
