I used to think stretching was just something I had to do while at gymnastics or before track practice and I absolutely hated it. Mostly because it was painful, in an obvious way, but I also thought it was lame and not necessary.
I found that most people, even athletes, agree. We tend to think stretching is tedious, not fun, and, let’s face it, doesn’t look very cool. On the other hand, we also seem to think stretching is only good for before or after a workout.

This year, my beautiful grandmother, AKA Nanny, turned 80, and she’s still as vibrant and healthy as she was as far back as I can remember.

It occurred to me that I am so lucky to have 80 years of wisdom to learn from, so I took advantage and put together a compilation of Nanny’s best tips on living a full, healthy life in this crazy world.

Being an active individual has it’s ups and downs, but I have some great tips for keeping your hair healthy and feeling great. Apparently, sweat can do some damage. How much damage? Not too sure, but what I do know is that sweating releases tons of waste and salts from the body which means your hair and scalp can get dried out pretty quickly after sweating.
