Exercise of the Month: Stretching
I frequently talk about the importance of strengthening muscles, but this month, I’m going to focus on stretching. Why is stretching beneficial to your body? Muscles and joints weaken as we age, as does our range of movement. Stretching allows us to develop and maintain strength; improve our flexibility; and increase our circulation and blood flow. In short, stretching provides a greater quality of life and allows for healthy aging.
To get started, try the stretches shown on this image. Hold each one for 5 to 10 seconds.
The Citrus Smell of Summer
Did you know that lemons have multiple benefits and uses beyond making lemonade? doTERRA Lemon Oil could almost be considered the Swiss Army Knife of essential oils.
It’s a powerful cleansing agent that purifies the air and surfaces and can be used as a non-toxic cleaner in your home. When added to water, Lemon provides a refreshing and healthy boost throughout the day.
Plus, Lemon is frequently added to food to enhance the flavor of main dishes and desserts. Taken internally, Lemon provides cleansing and digestive benefits while supporting healthy respiratory function. When diffused, Lemon is uplifting, energizing and can help improve your mood. All around, it’s the ideal essential oil for summer.
