The Truth About Stretching

We all seem to get the urge to stretch when we first wake up in the morning (at least every once in a while, if not every morning). Are there health benefits that come with stretching our arms, legs, and back when we first wake up? According to my research, yes there are. There are many articles online on the subject of stretching. There are four common explanations for why we instinctively stretch when we get out of bed.

  1. Stretching gets rid of stiffness.
  2. It helps the circulatory system and increases blood flow.
  3. It helps build muscles.
  4. It relieves stress.

So if you stretch a lot in the morning, don’t worry, it’s OK. It’s beneficial.

A Time to Pause

Thanksgiving is a great time to think about the things in our lives that we’re grateful for, but many times, we get so busy with meal preparation and travel plans that we forget to pause and give thanks for all of the things in our lives that matter most. Let’s not forget to take time next Thursday to give thanks for all of our blessings.

 

What Is Flannel?

It’s the time if year when we’re all starting to pull out our flannel shirts, flannel pajamas, and flannel bed sheets. So what is flannel made of? It actually depends. According to the definition on merriam-webster.com, flannel is “a soft cloth made of wool or cotton”. Flannel fabrics are usually plaid, but not all flannel is plaid. Flannel can also come in solid colors.

According to brittanica.com, “It is napped, most often on both sides, the degree of napping ranging from slight to so heavy that the twill weave is obscured.” What is “napping” you might ask. Besides short periods of sleep, Dictionary.com  defines a “nap” as “the short fuzzy ends of fibers on the surface of cloth, drawn up in napping”. In other words, napping causes the fabric to have fuzzy fibers.

  3. Better Mood
  4. Prevent Headaches

How Do You Make Your Bed?

I saw an article online with a list of things that most people do when they make their bed but shouldn’t. I think it’s interesting how a person can give a lot of thought into something that most people don’t put much thought into. I think making a bed is one of those things. If you asked around, I imagine that probably most people, if not all of them, would say that they don’t give a ton of thought into how they make their beds. If you want to make your bed the proper way, read the article below:

HUMOR IN THE WORKPLACE

I recently read an article in Forbes that made so much sense that I have to share it.  I believe that people have jobs for various reasons such as income, personal fulfillment, boredom, etc..  The list goes on and on.  Whatever you do in the form of work doesn’t have to be drudgery, it can indeed be fun even in the worst situations.

Truly you can not change other people but you can influence them with a happy attitude.  Laughter is contagious.
