The Benefits of Stretching
According to the Mayo Clinic, the top five benefits of stretching include:
Increased flexibility and joint range of motion:Flexible muscles can improve your daily performance. Tasks such as lifting packages, bending to tie your shoes or hurrying to catch a bus become easier and less tiring. Flexibility tends to diminish as you get older, but you can regain and maintain it.
Improved circulation:Stretching increases blood flow to your muscles. Blood flowing to your muscles brings nourishment and gets rid of waste byproducts in the muscle tissue. Improved circulation can help shorten your recovery time if you’ve had any muscle injuries.
Better posture:Frequent stretching can help keep your muscles from getting tight, allowing you to maintain proper posture. Good posture can minimize discomfort and keep aches and pains at a minimum.
Stress relief:Stretching relaxes tight, tense muscles that often accompany stress. 
Enhanced coordination:Maintaining the full range-of-motion through your joints keeps you in better balance. Coordination and balance will help keep you mobile and less prone to injury from falls, especially as you get older.

Reduce Your Risk- Breast Cancer

12%: The average woman’s risk of getting breast cancer.

24%: A woman’s risk of getting breast cancer is one parent had it.

Here are 3 ways to Reduce Your Risk!

1) Go Virgin. 4 alcoholic drinks per week can raise your risk 15%! More than two cocktails a day will raise that number to 55%. -Wendy Chen, M.D.

2) Snack smarter. Consuming two ounces of walnuts a day can reduce your risk of getting breast cancer by 40%! Wow! Walnuts are jam packed with cancer fighting antioxidants. -W. Elaine Hardman, Ph.D.

3) Vitamin D for Defense! Getting enough Vitamin D can slash your risk in half, ask your doctor to check your levels. Anything below 50 ng/ ml is too low and you should consider a supplement. -Annals of Epidemiology
