I love Valentines Day! I love it because it is all about love. What's better than love? I got a big smile on my face today while driving home from work when I saw various people walking around with their gifts of love. One lady was carrying a couple of bags and had a heart shaped balloon floating above her. Then a man came around the corner with a bunch of beautiful flowers. I just thought it was really nice that there is a day simply dedicated to expressing love. Love is a good thing. This is a good day to remember to express love to yourself. So often we really don't show the kind of love that our body needs. Try positive talk for a starter. Every time self negative thoughts start to beat you up, quiet them down with a positive thought about yourself. Get plenty of sleep, drink plenty of water, eat fresh foods, and give your body the exercise it needs. To finish it all off, soak in a hot bath, get a massage or relax with a good book. Show your body some love and it will show you some back. So many complaints that I hear from clients can be somewhat alleviated by these few simple lovely tips!
Being born & raised in San Diego I've been able to enjoy year around hiking & cycling. My husband & I participate in many long distance organized cycling events throughout the year. I also enjoy strength training & passing my knowledge of this discipline to my clients so that they may also reap the many benefits of staying strong. I currently focus the majority of my attention to the senior population. Balance, fall prevention, flexibility & strength training helps improve the quality of this rapidly growing segment of society. I am also a massage therapist, working at the San Diego Tennis & Racquet Ball Club & at the Chula Vista Olympic Training Center.
