Stress is a given in our busy lives. A bad work week, lack of sleep or not enough relaxation time can make you mentally tired, cranky and leave your muscles tense and wracked with tightness. Yoga not only releases tension in your tired muscles but it calms the mind as well.
There is nothing wrong with indulging with sweets every once in a while – the problem comes when we overconsume.
Unfortunately, it’s too easy to overdo the sugar intake because sugar is added to many every day processed foods, including breads, yogurt, juices, and sauces.
Our founder and spokesman Roger Teeter frequently talks about the importance of maintaining functional fitness into one’s senior years. And he lives by example – here’s Roger earlier this month teaching his 5-year old grandson how to waterski! To Roger, and so many other super seniors out there, it’s all about the ability to stay active and do what you love.
Though stretching can be time-consuming, it provides many benefits. Gentle stretching can help loosen the soft tissues of your body like ligaments and muscles to increase flexibility and help you relax. That being said, it is easy to make common mistakes that can cause injury. Here are some tips to make sure that you’re avoiding injury and stretching safely.

Feeling good and looking good are two different aspects of our lives that require time and attention if we want to maintain a happy and healthy life.

Light meals in the summer time are a must, and this recipe is a tasty complete meal all in one. The fruit adds a sweet – tart flavor punch and the pumpkin seeds add a bit of crunch. This recipe comes to us courtesy of the Dinner Concierge. They recommend serving this salad with salmon but we also think it would be good with other proteins! Try substituting the salmon with grilled chicken or shrimp, or even with a veggie burger, for variety. We think you will love this salad recipe – we certainly do!
Even in summer, we want delicious desserts! But, our thoughts shift away from warm and ooey-gooey to light and cool – and if it is fruity, too, all the better! We found this amazing recipe for a bright lemon and coconut bar that is gluten-free and dairy-free at Green Kitchen Stories. It’s also quick and easy to make! It just doesn’t get better than this!
Tired of serving (and being served) the same old corn chips and guacamole dip? Why not try something fresh, new and different the next time you need a snack for entertaining?
