Magnesium for Fitness

31+-4XzBOKL._SY355_[1]When my aches and pains started several months ago, I initially bought several pairs of dance shoes, switched gyms to experiment on a softer floor, and generally gave up a lot of my gusto for Zumba. The true answer was so simple. Magnesium.

My sister, http://elhogarsencillo.com/, is my go-to person for all things herbal. When I described the pain in my lower legs, aggravated by dancing and excessive exercise, she mentioned that about 80% of adults are low in magnesium. The list of symptoms for magnesium deficiency is as long as your arm! Muscle aches, snoring, anxiety, low blood pressure, and the list goes on.

Enter Life-Flo Pure Magnesium Oil, available on Amazon for $5.92. A little spray on my affected areas, and the pain was gone. Steal of deal! I estimate my 8-oz. bottle will last me several months to a year.

I also purchased Magnesium powder and pills, but found the spray to be most effective for my needs.

  • Magnesium oil can also be used as a deodorant!
  • Magnesium oil causes pain/itching when sprayed on freshly shaved skin, cuts, and even mosquito bites.
  • Magnesium oil is odor-free. No one knows it is there, except when I brag about my fantastic antidote to my lower leg pain.
  • I have also used this on my husband’s back, where he carries a lot of tension from his work and past car accidents.

I highly recommend this product and brand. It is a great value, easy to apply, and very effective.

Cheers,

Don’t Forget to Dance

Before you go to bed tonight, don’t forget to dance. Do a little jig… Ha, ha.

I love the exhilaration, the release, and the expression allowed through dance. This is a great way to relieve tension in the body, which can make a world of difference for a good night’s sleep.

Let’s get moving and enjoy the gift that God gave us: the freedom to move!

Aside from artistic, emotional, and physical benefits, let us remember that the ultimate joy of dancing is found in worship to God. I find myself worshipping  as I shake to my zumba routines. This spirit of power-praise carries over into other areas as well, reminding me to worship through struggles and temptations throughout the day.

Praise is power. Dancing is a tool created for praise. We are vessels designed to use the tools given us.

Shake it up, Baby 😉

Cheers,

also: after you finish your morning happy dance… don’t forget to smell the flowers and drink your coffee!
