I'm on vacation this week in beautiful Gloucester, Virginia, but I thought I'd post this excellent health tip real quick: keep your neck covered when it's cold.
It's getting chillier in the Northern Hemisphere as winter approaches. Kimberly Hart, fabulous massage therapist, herbalist, and owner of Adagio Holistic Therapies in Minneapolis, recently sent out a good email reminder that we should be wearing scarves or finding other ways of keeping our necks warm at this time of year and until the weather is warm again. She noted that if our neck is cold we tend to scrunch up our shoulders and this gets us into bad posture, tension, etc.
Lately I've been having terrible neck tension so this was a great reminder to me. And besides, it's a good excuse to stock up on pretty scarves, whether handmade or store bought. I've been eyeing some at T.J. Maxx for a while now!
