HAPPINESS! Now that the days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer…. our pituitary glands are going into a biochemical form of hibernation…. Dialing down the production of mood elevating and pain killing endorphins. About five days ago I started noticing that my muscles were starting to ache… And I had an overall feeling of malaise. What’s a SAD Girl to do? Start kicking up the stretching!! European studies have found that by doing yoga or simply stretching for 5 minutes… twice a day….. symptoms will be cut by 43%. That’s a huge benefit… for just 10 minutes out of our days! Happiness is just a stretch away!!
