Simple Stretch for Lower Back on the Yoga Trapeze

That's me in the yoga trapeze doing a lower back stretch before I make soap today! Summer Passion and Dead Sea along with a few others.  I am a fairly active person. Living in South Florida I enjoy my life. I run, swim, work with my body and hands making soaps, and body care for hours at a time, snorkel and scuba dive.

The Joy of Swimming

It's pretty hot this time of the year here in South Florida. Today,  I headed out to the Swimming Hall of Fame Pool for my workout. With my SPF30 All Natural Sunblock in hand, I happily made my way to my mind altering experience- swimming. Did you know that twenty minutes a day of vigorous movement can alleviate depression? Studies show exercise can alleviate depression due to an increase in our brain and it's ability to pump out the needed chemicals that are responsible for well-being and happiness.  I switched from running to swimming a few months ago, but I had no idea how much I'd enjoy...
