How to Strengthen your Arms and Shoulders, 3 times a week!

If you don’t lift heavy things, your arms and shoulders muscles will get weak.

Do you want to rely on asking someone else to pick up heavy items for you?

As I am out and about in the community, kind people will offer to help me lift items.

No thank you, I can do it. It may take a little longer and I enjoy the practice.

“If you don’t use it, you lose it”

Here is a 4-minute video with arm and shoulder strengthening exercises.

Practice playfully 3 times a week. 🦾

You Rock Yoga!

Greetings 🌲 Have you been out for forest bathing lately?

There are happy healing benefits to be out of our buildings, under the sky with our feet on the earth instead of on concrete.

People who spend time in the forest experience decreased cortisol (stress hormone) levels, which can help relieve high blood pressure, heart conditions, skin conditions, and asthma.

By reducing stress levels your body’s natural immunity defense systems are able to work their magic. 🌍

Trees release oils into the air, called phytoncides, and inhaling these natural essences can actually help to boost your immune system.

Take little steps to greater health with a walk in the woods, at the Baylands or at the beach. 🐋

My longtime friend, Ilona and I take walks together about once a week.

She is a good videographer, and we like sharing stretches so you can radiate good feelings in your body, mind and heart. 

Watch our video and answer the question in YouTube comment section!

See you on YouTube 👍

New Year Intentions, mine and yours?

Wishing you a very healthy 2022 and hope you reside in joy, much of everyday.

As the new year begins, I like walking in nature to think about what is most important.

What we think about, we bring about!

Health is our greatest wealth. We create it everyday with the choices we make.

Let’s join together and set gentle clear intentions to refresh our physical and emotional health.

Mine intentions are to:

🕉 Breathe slowly and evenly through my nose with my teeth apart and lips resting together

 💧End my showers with cold water, at least 5 days a week

 🍪Eat dessert treats that are only sweetened with organic maple syrup, rice syrup, fruit juice and /or dates

 🧘‍♀️Do a minimum, 5 minutes of yoga inversion poses (head below the heart) everyday

These make me feel better. Should be easy… right.

What are your wellness intentions?

I would enjoy knowing what you want in 2022. Comment below to share.

Gotta go for now, out for a walk in the redwood trees
