If that can be considered a lifestyle, sign me up for that! I’m talking about seizing the day. Go to your #1 travel destination. Meet your favorite movie star and tell him face to face exactly what you think about him. Go out for ice cream. Call your mom. Grab your partner’s hand and give it a squeeze. Apply for that dream job. Go on that whale watch. Smile at that stranger. Pay for the car behind you at the drive-through. For me, life is about a series of small to large meaningful moments. Sometimes, the little things are actually the big things. Sometimes, often, the big things are the big BIG things.
Like I said, sign me up for that lifestyle. Although it’s safe to say that I signed myself up for that long ago – either when I was born, when I signed on to move 3,000 miles away to be with a boyfriend I barely knew, or somewhere in between all of that.
What I don’t like is for anything to stand in my way. I’m in my 30’s, which I still consider young, but it’s rather amazing how different my body feels than it did in my 20’s. That said, I’m super glad I don’t stay up all night anymore! I’ve always been fairly limber. However, where I used to be more careless with stretching before or after exercising, I have noticed that it can get quite painful. Not only that, my life is a bit unpredictable. While I admire and respect people who go to the gym regularly, I work a bit differently. I do get my exercise, but never in the same place! I’m sort of a mixed bag with exercise.
I crave adventure – through work and through my personal life. I’m active, but it’s an unpredictable active! It’s 14 hour photography shoots, or zip-lining in a boreal forest. It’s running with the dog, when walking doesn’t seem like enough. And it’s even intensive barre workout classes, but even they change the routines often, and I change my routines too.
What I can say for sure is that things don’t feel the way they used to feel. I want to be a photographer forever, but it requires a lot of physical intensity – long hours, no resting or stretching, squatting, and putting weight on your knees and elbows too often. At some point last year, I discovered the wonders of Biofreeze® Professional in helping me get the pain relief I need to live life to the fullest. Biofreeze® Professional Pain Reliever products are a safe and effective pain relief alternative. They’re non-systemic, non-narcotic, and contain no NSAIDS (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), salicylates, or addictive substances.
Did I mention they’re available in both the signature green and colorless (dye-free) formats, are never tested on animals, and are produced in the United States? AND, that they’re as effective as ice for treating pain, but without the drippy bag!
I have Biofreeze® Professional in three products. Biofreeze® Professional 360 Spray makes applying much easier with its continuous flow – designed to reach hard-to-reach places like middle back, neck and lower extremities. Biofreeze® Professional Gel alleviates pain from backaches, arthritis, sore muscles and joints, sprains, strains, and bruises. And, Biofreeze® Professional Roll-Ons contain their best topical pain relieving gel with long-lasting results and a massaging roller ball.
Biofreeze retail version can be found at your favorite retailer. Biofreeze Professional must be purchased through your hands-on healthcare professional.
