Flexibility

Stretching can improve your flexibility. Moving more freely will make it easier for you to reach down to tie your shoes or look over your shoulder when you back your car out of the driveway.

Examples of flexibility exercises

  • Try the calf stretch exercise. Stand facing a wall slightly farther than arm’s length from the wall, feet shoulder-width apart. Step forward with the right leg and bend the right knee. Keeping both feet flat on the floor, bend the left knee slightly until you feel a stretch in your left calf muscle. Hold the position for 10 to 30 seconds, and then return to the starting position. Repeat with the left leg.Woman performing a calf stretch

  • Try the ankle stretch exercise. Sit securely toward the edge of a sturdy, armless chair. Stretch your legs out in front of you. With your heels on the floor, bend your ankles to point the toes toward you. Hold the position for 10 to 30 seconds. Bend your ankles to point toes away from you and hold for 10 to 30 seconds.Woman stretching her ankle

Safety Tips

  • Stretch when your muscles are warmed up.

  • Stretch after endurance or strength exercises.

  • Don’t stretch so far that it hurts.

  • Always remember to breathe normally while holding a stretch.

  • Talk with your doctor if you are unsure about a particular exercise.

No matter your age, you can find activities that meet your fitness level and needs!

Flax

Also known as the Wild Blue Flax, the Prairie Flax is noticeable with its small vibrant blue flower. With five petals, the flowers sit atop a thin stem and can grow up to two feet tall. The flowers form open clusters with multiple heads and because of its thin stem, the flower heads are often found drooping. Its growing season runs from spring to early fall.

Where to see: The Prairie Flax grows well in meadows and open areas within semi-desert, mountainous and subalpine terrain – up to 12,000 feet.

Look for more information on flax in this months articles.

Grass Fed Beef

Ever consider where your meat is coming from? Now that meat processing plants are closing due to infection, it may be time to consider new sources for fresh meat.

The Off Family Ranch has been raising grass fed beef and bison near Del Norte, Colorado since 1874.

Check them out here!

Nutrition in Grass Fed Beef

One of the most noticeable differences between grain-fed and grass-fed beef is that the fat color is significantly more yellow in grass-fed beef. This is due to the anti-oxidant, beta-carotene which is incorporated into the fat from the cattle grazing on grass. Other nutritional benefits of grass-fed beef are the high Vitamin E, Omega-3:Omega 6 fatty acids ratio and “conjugated linoleic acid” or CLA’s content. These properties are linked to healthy brain function, lowering blood pressure, fighting depression and reducing cancer. Grass-fed beef also has 1/2 the saturated fat as grain-fed beef and rivals the fat content of poultry and wild game. Calorie per calorie, lean beef is one of the most nutrient rich foods.

Simple exercises to do anytime.

Hold each pose for 30 seconds to one minute while breathing as slowly as possible through the nose.

Use a chair to help with balance and to keep a foot up.
