Beat the winter blues by getting a massage this month. Go to a day spa with friends or go by yourself to a local massage therapist. Can’t afford a massage in this economy? Here are some ideas:

1) Get a group of friends together that you feel comfortable with and give each other massages. When I used to do theater, sometimes during rehearsals we’d stand in a circle and everyone would rub each other’s shoulders.

2) Offer to swap a 30-minute massage with your spouse, boyfriend, or best friend

3) Self massage. Lie on you back with you knees pulled into your chest. Rock side-to-side on your back and then circle your low back in different directions. It’s not the same a a real massage, but it does feel good.

Thank you for giving your time to stop and read my blog. I hope it encourages you to keep moving. Move and the body will be happier. And when you're moving you can hike, run, swim in Jell-O, race over non-Newtonian fluids, travel the world or build igloos--if that's your thing. If not, you can watch me do it. This is just a spot to try and feel good about life.
