“Stand up straight!” “You’re slumping again!”
We all heard this when we were younger. And we didn’t give Mom’s nagging much thought. But now that we’re older and wiser, and our backs are achy and tired, we could be ready to listen to some good advice. Sitting and standing properly helps more than just your looks. Good posture strengthens your bones, muscles and ligaments. It also helps you stay healthy most of your life. Starting today, I’ll practice good standing posture and I’ll sit like a queen.
Here’s a quick round up of what you missed here at Life Retreat this week. Have a great weekend!
HOW TO USE EPSOM SALT
When used in a bath, the magnesium sulfate – Epsom salt is absorbed by the skin. This can cause the skin to soften and some of the substances that the skin absorbs day-to-day to be drawn out.
Occasional use of Epsom salts (especially on the feet) does not seem to be harmful. Many people swear by Epsom salts, though there doesn’t seem to be many scientific references to its use. There are a few cautions of using Epsom salts, however, and they are mostly for people with dry skin. Click here to read more.
