Winter Motion Reduces Stress

Ice Skating!  Yup!  You heard me.  During the warmer months, I fish and golf with my daughter.  But now what?  Well after 40 years (no snickering) I put on a pair of skates and took to the ice.  What a challenge, but what fun.  My daughter had never skated and my muscles had absolutely no recollection on doing this previously.  So the two of us took to the ice like Bambi.  No, I didn't fall even once. 
 
There are many ways to keep moving during these colder New England months.  If skating isn't for you then try sledding, skiing (downhill or cross-country) or simply hiking in the crisp clean air.  There's plenty of time to catch the holiday repeats on tv.  Keep moving for a stress reduced season.

Stretching Is Not Just For Muscles

This may come off as a "do as I say, not as I do" kind of post, but read on anyway.
 
Patiently stretching your muscles not only reduces some of your DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness)and improves your joint mobility.  It can make you happy!  Most of you are saying that you don't feel happy when you're stretching...it hurts.  Well, listen closely - YOUR DOING IT WRONG!!!  Those of you that have spent time stretching with me know that you should put your "head" in the muscle and breath quietly while concentrating on the muscle relaxing.
