Do you really wake up to the smell of coffee?

Here’s our Fun Fact of the Day: You have no sense of smell when you’re sleeping!

Here’s a Strange Thought

Ever thought of how many miles our nervous system would be if we were to line them up from end to end?

Here’s our Fun Fact of the Day: The human body has 45 miles of nerves.

Forty-three pairs of nerves connect the central nervous system to every part of the body. Twelve pairs go to and from the brain, and 31 go from the spinal cord.

Feet First!

Here’s another fun fact for you: There are 206 bones in the human body.  One fourth of them are in your feet!

The muscles in our feet are too often overlooked. Think about all the things you do on your feet. Can you imagine life without them? Take a minute out of your day to appreciate them and all the hard work they go through by treating yourself to a foot massage.  Better yet, spend some time bonding with your spouse, your kids, or even a friend and have a foot massaging party! You’ll be surprised how much better you’ll feel when you start taking care of yourself from the bottom up.

Embrace Your Body and Mind

“In a disordered mind, as in a disordered body, soundness of health is impossible.”
