The Simplest Things We Can Do For Ourselves

With my job, I'm required to do a lot of heavy lifting. I don't mind the lifting, but sometimes my lower back buckles and renders me out of commission. Recently, I've been seeing a chiropractor who promises my lower back issues will become a "thing of the past," and I hope he's right. In the meantime, I've been focusing on ways to strengthen my back (and possibly keep in shape at the same time).
A good friend of mine recommended more stretching for my back and persuaded me to borrow some Pilates DVDs from my local library. After only a of couple sessions, I was able to stretch much better and even perspire a bit I became hooked. Unfortunately, the DVDs eventually became due and I was Pilate-less for a while. But alas! I was at my favorite store, TJ Maxx and found a "Yoga Pack" complete with Yoga and Pilates DVDs, a cushy mat, rubber stretching band, Styrofoam brick, and carrying strap. I'm so happy with my purchase that I found a similar pack at Walmart.com for you: http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=6958905 .
We are growing older there's no doubt about that and our bodies aren't as new and agile as they once were. It takes time to prepare our bodies and minds for a full day's work, and yet we almost always go without. Don't we feel better after a simple stretch, some personal time, and a suitable snack to keep us energized? In my opinion, these are the simplest things we can do for ourselves; they help us reach our full potential, keep us happy and healthy, and help us influence others in a positive way.

About Jennifer:

Greetings! I'm Jennifer Buser, professional organizer and healthy living advocate. Most of my friends say I'm a chipper, go-getter kind of gal who gets excited about organizing and wellness. As an organizer, I believe that an enhanced life includes regular physical activity, a balanced diet (especially with lots of fruits and vegetables), and a concentrated emphasis on mental health. I come from a home where my mother's family practiced Quakerism and my father's parents attended a Methodist church. As a child, I was able to learn different fundamental life lessons from each of my grandparents. From my Methodist Grandmother I learned the value of organization and cleanliness. At their home, her husband allowed me to explore nature on their pond and gave me creative freedom in his workshop. My Quaker Grandmother continues to teach me the importance of culture and appreciation, and I credit my Quaker Grandfather with helping me to find my true self during a cross-country trip as a teenager. I chose to become a professional organizer because all these experiences combined in me an attitude of tolerance, exploration, simplicity, and awareness. I enjoy helping people foster their version of an enhanced life by challenging them to stay physically active, maintain their energy with a healthy diet, exercise their state of mind and broaden their perspective.
