The Shift’s Health & Fitness Tips

Try Some Ginger: 
The volatile oils in ginger have long made it a useful herbal remedy for nasal and chest congestion. Pour 2 cups of boiling water over a 1-inch piece of peeled, grated ginger; steep for 10 minutes; and strain.
Add a pinch or two of cayenne pepper to the water and drink as needed.

Sniff Rosemary:
According to some research, catching a whiff of this aromatic herb may increase alertness and improve memory. To stay sharp, try smelling fresh rosemary or inhaling the scent of rosemary essential oil before a test or meeting.

Stretch Often: 
If your back is in pain constantly, try and work on morning stretches or little cat stretches throughout the day. We love little stretches since they help align your  back and ease the pain off of your muscles when you’ve been in one position all day.

Find a Workout That Works for You:
No matter what you want to try, whether it’s Piloxing, Yoga, Pilates, Kick Boxing or Running, there’s something for everyone. We’re not all going to love jogging or cycling, but we do have to learn to love to move. When you get moving there are so many amazing things that happen: your mood is better, your eating habits change and your life begins to fall into place when you feel good. Don’t take this lightly, everything can change if you allow it.
