My arthritis is mild, but I have pain from sciatica and bone pain from cancer. This workout is easy and gentle on the joints, and it's for any age. The gentle stretching really helps with my back pain. You can do the workout standing, seated, or standing and using a chair for support.
For years, I've collected funny stips or jokes I've seen online or newspapers or magazines, and I keep them all in a album. If I am having a down day and need a smile, I look through one or two of those albums, they always make me laugh!
I have found that Village Naturals Therapy Headache Relief Lotion works great when I have a mild headache, and often prevents a headache if I feel symptoms coming on. It has peppermint, chamomile, and lavender in it. I rub it on my forehead and the back of my neck. Just don't put it on after washing your face or showering, it stings if your pores are open!
Some of the stores I shop in leave the plastic hangers on the clothes when you buy them. I prefer to use my own sturdier hangers, but the ones I get with my clothing I donate to Goodwill. I figure they can always use the extra hangers since they sell a lot of clothes, and it's a great way to recycle them.
I love these! Each bar is made with low fat caramel ice cream drizzled with chocolate. Only 100 calories, and 2.5 grams of fat per bar, and each bar has 3 grams of fiber. I love the flavor of the ice cream, tastes like a caramel latte. They are nice and thick too, and take time to eat, so they are a very satisfying treat.
If there is a product you really like and use a lot of, or a store you shop in often, search for them on Facebook and "like" them if they have a page. Sometimes they offer deals, coupons or samples exclusively for Facebook fans.
