Growing Pains!

Now that I'm getting older and considered over the hill, I've found some new aches and pains that weren't there before. Mostly I get stiff when sitting too much and if I over do things being on my feet too much my knee aggravates me.

To alleviate much of my problems, I've found some simple exercise like walking and stretching sure does help out a lot. One thing I've learned is that if it hurts, don't do it. Work around pain, not through it.

It takes seventeen muscles to smile and forty-three to frown

If you don't use it you loose it they say. We were given 650+ muscles for a reason – to use them!

Those muscles do include your smile muscles too, so don't forget to exercise them !

SMILES can cure a world of ills. Nothing can beat a SMILE whether your old or young.

Smiling is my favorite exercise

My face muscles and eyes are constantly doing their workout. A smile costs me nothing but does wonders for those on the receiving end. I'm not beatiful nor even pretty but be sure that a smile is what people remember about you

Anyone reading 'Ma', reads a smile!
