There’s No CNN At Disneyland??

IMG_3270I get asked all the time; “Why do you go to Disneyland so much?”

My usual answer is , “Well, I like Disney and  I like the rides!” Or another answer is, “It makes me happy to  be there…” Then I REALLY thought about this and other things in my life while trying to retire for the evening. And then I came across items on the internet that struck a chord, seeing all the headlines and posts about the latest goings on in the world.

A lot of it is not pretty. Not happy inducing. Even scary. I thought A LOT about WHY a place like Disneyland brings me happy…

Here are my personal reasons on why “The Happiest Place On Earth” is my choice and why it means so much to MY life…

Just for 1 day: There are no politics, religion, hate, threats, war, discrimination, privilege, elitism, racism, sexism, ageism, criticism, bullying, homophobia, misogyny, passive-aggressiveness, dictatorship, protests, divisiveness, slanted headlines, narcissistic attention garnering posts, or hashtags.

There is no Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Bernie Sanders, Kardashians, Colin Kaepernick, Vladimir Putin, or Kim Jong Un. There is no Fox, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, or Cable News.

No Left… No Right.

Benefits Of Body Flexibility

THE TOUGHEST part about working out and going to a class to get fit is usually “finding the time” do it.

I have the philosophy that if something in your life is very important to you, then you will magically find the time in your schedule to do it. No matter what that importance is: Your job, children, relationship, family your home, money, drama, etc. But what about your health? What percentage of your life do you dedicate to your fitness, nutrition and well-being? How much time do you spend on social media and technology vs. doing something for yourself?

I have come to understand that what we give PRIORITY to, shows up THE MOST in your life. That none of the things that I mentioned above, you will be any good for, if you are not healthy and feeling good! (But really, get rid of the drama!) One of the many aspects of fitness and wellness that I am a fan of is…

FLEXIBILITY!

Did you know that you can reduce stress and improve your health while burning calories just by doing just 10-15 minutes of stretching a few times a day? Not only does stretching improve blood flow and flexibility, it also provides a variety of other health benefits. Read on to find out just 5 of the many benefits of getting flexible:

Decreased Risk of Injury:

An effective flexibility training program (like Yoga) can improve your physical performance and help reduce your risk of injury. By improving your range of motion, your body requires less energy to make the same movements and you also will have more flexible joints thus lessening the likelihood of injuries sustained during workouts, or any other time.Beach yoga

Improved Posture:

Recent research has shown that static stretching can reduce muscle soreness after exercise. These slow, gradual movements involve a controlled elongation of the muscle through it’s full range of motion, and is then held for 15-30 seconds in the farthest position that can be held without pain. By stretching in this way, you can improve muscular balance and your resting posture.
