4 Habits to Keep You Happier and Healthier into Your Golden Years

4 Habits to Keep You Happier and Healthier into Your Golden Years

Aaahhh, the golden years.  The idyllic-hazed lifestyle of cozy cardigans and slippers.  Quiet afternoons spent reading and napping are interrupted by only the occasional game of bridge or slow shuffle around the park.  Chamomile tea is sipped every afternoon before a 4:30pm dinner, and then it’s a rousing dose of Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune before heading off to bed. (We’ll pause here while any retirees reading this can finish wiping away tears of laughter at this description.)   

It’s a Mad, Mad March

It’s a Mad, Mad March

It’s almost spring, and with it comes a beautiful soundtrack of a few more birds in the trees, kids playing in sunny yards and neighborhood sounds of mowers and rakes. And, if you’ve got basketball fans in your house, add to that spring soundtrack hours of TV announcers discussing brackets, fans cheering in packed basketball arenas, and the squeak of players’ shoes on shiny court floors.  The “Madness” of this month is truly exciting – with bracket-forming, team-cheering, and plenty of office discussion. However, March can also bring a truly different kind of madness. Between Spring Break planning, the Easter holiday, quarter-end deadlines, preparing for school finals, the looming Tax Day and the mountain of Spring Cleaning you’re itching to get to, March Madness starts to take on a whole new meaning. How should we handle feelings of being overwhelmed as they come? What do we do when our to-do list is so long, we barely have time to read it, much less tackle its content? Fortunately, we have some relief to offer. NO, we don’t plan on coming over to dust your blinds or file your taxes, but we do have three ways to tame your inner March Madness.

Why Am I Sore After A Massage?

Why Am I Sore After A Massage?

Eyes open slowly, blinking periodically to adjust for a new day. A deep breath is taken while your limbs stretch out, and that’s when you feel it. It’s the day after your massage, and when you roll out of bed you wonder to yourself, “Did I work out yesterday? Did I lift weights in my sleep?” Your muscles feel a little sore, and some seem a bit swollen, almost like they’re bruised. You’re even a little more tired than usual.  You think that surely something must be wrong. This soreness couldn’t possibly be a result from your massage . . . could it? Didn’t you schedule your massage with the hope that your tight and tender spots would feel some relief afterwards? 

Spring Resolutions…Revisiting Our Goals

Spring Resolutions…Revisiting Our Goals

We don’t know about you, but the fact that it’s almost officially springtime makes us want to jump up and down with happiness. Sure, there is a lot to love about winter – the attitude of rest it inspires, the opportunities to spend time with loved ones during the holidays and the frosty fun activities that are only possible thanks to  snow and ice. However, with the air getting warmer, and the joy of rebirth happening everywhere you turn, we’re reminded again of just how lovely spring is.

Leap Into Those Extra-Day Dreams

Leap Into Those Extra-Day Dreams

If you were granted a gift of an extra hour that was yours, free and clear, with which to do whatever you wanted, what would you do?  What about an extra six hours? How about an entire day? It doesn’t take long for the brain to start spinning with options and ideas, and before long, we’ve got an arm-length list.  Would you sleep? Enjoy a lengthy hike? Cuddle with a loved one? Maybe you’d finally play that board game that your kids got last Christmas? The anomalous Leap Day is right around the corner – one of the rare times when it really does feel like the whole world is given an extra day. While it’s possible that many folks will not get to fill their extra day fantasies, given that February 29th falls on a Monday, this day can help us to examine our priorities, and how well we are, or aren’t, living them out in our day-to-day. How we envision our own “perfect” day is usually an indicator for what we’d like to see more of in our lives.

But have you ever considered the “hidden” benefits of massage? The ones you can’t necessarily feel or see? This February, during American Heart Month, let’s take into consideration the positive benefits that massage might hold for your heart – after all, the hardest-working muscle in your body should feel some love too, right?

You know the day is coming.  All those red and pink flowers and pastel-tinted conversation hearts can’t be wrong. Valentine’s Day is upon us, and you and your sweetheart are wondering just how to celebrate. You tick off the ideas, one by one. Dinner out?  Too crowded and busy.  Movie theater?  Sounds okay, but a little boring.  Stay in and binge on cashew chicken and Netflix sitcoms?  No way, buster. Your loved one is worth a little care, a little pampering, and deserves a Valentine’s Day that expresses how great you think he/she is. Lucky for you, we’ve got you covered. What’s a solution that is a gift and a date idea, all rolled into one? One that will even improve your quality of life? It’s clearly time to book an Elements couples massage for you and your honey. 
(Bonus: If you’re swinging it single this year, no big deal. How much fun would it be to grab your mom, sister, or girlfriend for a special “Gal-entine’s Day” celebration that will renew and refresh you both?)

Why the Armchair Quarterback Needs a Massage

guys watching sports on tvYour muscles are tensed, your heart rate is elevated, and you can practically feel the stress pulsing through your veins. You find yourself yelling – cheers, jeers, and frustrated yelps emit from your mouth.  Heck, you’re even a little sweaty. You’re breathless, watching the clock, hoping for a victorious finish before the time runs out. Closing out the last loop of a 5K? Nope. Playing the last 30 minutes of a close basketball game? Not even close. You happen to be in your living room, in front of an array of choice snacks and beverages, in your armchair. Welcome to “Big Game” Sunday.
