Limber for Life

Veggie Curry Soup & Life Nerve Stretch

Here's a great quote: "If you're flexible in life, you won't ever get bent out of shape." So true, both on the physical and emotional levels. We do grow older, we do have accidents and we do have our inherent DNA that influences the pliability of our bodies and likewise, we have situations in life that incline us to be more, or less, open-minded and fluid in our thinking. But, we can make the best of what we've been given. In this episode Melissa cooks up a pot of Veggie Curry Soup that includes turmeric, a spice that is known to be effective in increasing flexibility in the joints. Stretch out your Life Nerve with Camilla to increase the flexibility of your spine and hips, and it's said to literally, lengthen your life.

I loved the recipe and the stretch. I would have liked to also see her do the stretch in a limited way- for those who can't reach their toes.
