Benefits of Stretching

Bill Esteb's "Morning Motivation"

Happiness is choice. Since you know the truth about health, you should be the happiest person patient's encounter. It's risky surrendering your happiness to circumstances. Yet, many of us do.

In many cases, sweeping is a lost art, replaced by the noisy, efficient vacuum cleaner. But in several cultures and religions, sweeping the front and back porch every morning is regarded as an important cleansing ritual that prepares the ground for new energy on every level—physically, spiritually, emotionally, and mentally.
