As I rounded the corner to 42, I noticed more aches and pains in my daily dealings. I also noticed times when there were more aches and times when there were fewer. It has occurred to me that these aches and pains are a direct correlation to my activity levels and my diet.
When I exercise regularly (that’s walking for me) my muscles and joints in my legs, back, arms and neck don’t hurt as much. When I take my supplements and choose wise culinary options, I feel GREAT!
However, just as a spider web is built one strand at a time, so do the tight, sore muscles and joints in my body. When I don’t provide the nutrition my body needs its ability to run properly is compromised.
When I don’t get out there and walk or exercise from home in some way for days at a time, each day the aches and pains increase in number and intensity.
So, how do I unravel that web of pain and discomfort. I begin with gently stretching and adding some activity. I recommit to healthful eating. Rather than just eating for the moment, I make the effort to choose more fiber, higher quality protein and foods that support my health. I also opt for a massage from my trusted LMT at Serenity Healing Studio or Dr. Green, my Chiropractor for an adjustment.
Just because I abused my body and avoided healthy choices for years, doesn’t mean I can’t make a difference in my body’s ability to perform today.
Please contact me for more information on how you can begin to unravel that spider web of tight muscles, and aches and pains.
