You’ll want to keep your plants as close to the window as you can. In rare cases a succulent can actually get sunburned if the light from the window gets too hot. This tends to happen most with south facing windows in the summer.   WATERING So ..read more

Nobody likes a nag but as a Massage Therapist I bug clients on this one topic: Stretching. Stretching preps the body for physical activity. It improves muscle and joint flexibility, increases blood flow through the muscles, prevents injury, improves posture by lengthening tight muscles and optimizes physical performance. I truly care for people and want to see my clients feeling great and prospering but I also know that this one simple tip will move you from feeling blah to brilliant.

Using fresh ingredients is always best, especially those you’ve proudly cultivated yourself. Creating your own DIY herb gardens is a great way to liven up your cooking, impress friends and family, and keep your recipes unique and healthy.
