Well, here we are preparing for the Holidays. Whether you observe the Holidays or not the fact remains IT IS COLD OUTSIDE. I really enjoy this time of the year, the leaves change and fall, the snow falls and you feel a slight chill in the air, the only thing I'm not a fan of is the sloppy weather and reckless drivers or better yet the unskilled driver.

As we prepare for the season you notice that you have drier skin, your lips begin to chap, your muscles are tighter than usual. There are many who would say "I'm tight all year". Well let's just say, that if your were tight during the summer, fall and spring than image how tight you are now that it's a natural thing for your body to do as it tries to hold heat to keep you warm.

Our bodies have a natural reaction to cold. Your body attempts to keep you warm by contracting your muscles. Stretching has to be a regular part of your daily habits. If your tight and your body contracts to hold heat then you have to know that without stretching you can pull, tear or injure yourself much easier. The winter season is a very dangerous season injuries increase due to shoveling, slipping on ice and several other incidents. What are you doing to keep yourself healthy, warm and injury free this season?

  1. You bring up a really good point. I'd never thought about how the cold really makes harder on our muscles, but it's true. Thank heavens for massage therapy, especially during the winter. http://bit.ly/eNGUBS
