What prevents you from eating fresh fruits and vegetables? A barrier I hear frequently is that fresh produce spoils and goes bad too quickly and ends up being thrown away before people have a chance to eat it. Granted this is still an excuse, I can see how this can be a possible barrier, and I am all about removing barriers to healthy eating. One way to make sure that you are preserving your more...

Deep stretching should always be done when the body is warmed up. A workout or hot shower in the morning can get your muscles warm. If you are doing stretches right out of bed, do them gently as the muscles are cold and there is more likely chance for injury – quite the opposite result from what we want!
