My Tips for Beautiful Skin!
Start Early - Take care of your skin while you’re young and it still looks good! Preventative action is sometimes best!
Wear Sunblock - EVERYDAY! Who cares if your face isn’t that tan? You can add bronzer or use tanning face lotions to even up the skin with the rest of your body when summer rolls around. Not only does it protect your skin from cancer-causing UV rays, but it will also keep sun spots from happening!
Drink Water - Stay hydrated from the inside out. Your organs need water to function properly, and that includes your skin!
Don’t Pick - Leave those blemishes alone! Apply a dab of toothpaste or acne spot treatment to them at night if you want to treat them.. but don’t pick at them!
Don’t Smoke - It literally kills you from the inside out.. and wreaks HAVOC on your skin. If you smoke, you can almost guarantee your skin is going to look horrible a few years down the road. But what do you expect if you poison yourself on a daily basis?
Sleep - Get plenty of rest.. this is when your body restores and regenerates itself… this includes your skin!
Avoid Tanning Beds - Studies indicate that tanning beds are just as likely, if not more so, to cause skin cancer. AVOID AVOID AVOID. Use Jergens tanning lotion or other sunless tan products if you must tan.
Drink Tea - Tea is loaded with antioxidants which fight skin aging effects of free radicals!

Use these tips to keep stretching safe:
Don’t consider stretching a warm-up. You may hurt yourself if you stretch cold muscles. So before stretching, warm up with light walking, jogging or biking at low intensity for five to 10 minutes. Or better yet, stretch after you exercise when your muscles are warmed up. 
Focus on major muscle groups. When you’re stretching, focus on your calves, thighs, hips, lower back, neck and shoulders. Also stretch muscles and joints that you routinely use at work or play. 
Don’t bounce. Bouncing as you stretch can cause small tears in the muscle. 
Don’t aim for pain. Expect to feel tension while you’re stretching, not pain. If it hurts, you’ve pushed too far. Back off to the point where you don’t feel any pain, then hold the stretch.
Make stretches sport specific. Some evidence suggests that it’s helpful to do stretches tailored for your sport or activity. If you play soccer, for instance, you’re more vulnerable to hamstring strains. So opt for stretches that help your hamstrings.
Keep up with your stretching. Stretching can be time-consuming. But you can achieve the best benefits by stretching regularly, at least two to three times a week. 
Bring movement into your stretching. Gentle movement can help you be more flexible in specific movements. The gentle movements of tai chi, for instance, may be a good way to stretch.

Some tips I have for keeping stress levels at bay!! =)
Write things down - Writing things down can get it off your mind.. if it’s down on paper, you don’t have to stress about remembering to get it done! It can also keep you organized.
Sleep! - Without enough sleep, our bodies and brains can’t function at their highest level. 
Shut off your technology - Sometimes being unreachable can be very relaxing. Shut off your phone and computer and go for a walk or to the mall. Spend some time disconnected.
Read - Read a book, a magazine, a newspaper… disappearing into literature can be soothing and take you away from the stress for awhile, while still exercising your mind!
Schedule “me time” - Put an hour or so aside for yourself… just to hang out with yourself. Take a bubble bath, paint your nails, watch a movie, do something you enjoy!
Wake up earlier - Waking up 15 minutes or more early can help you get a head start on your day. Rather than rushing around like a chicken with your head cut off, you can calmly move from one task to the next, rather than trying to

Excessive stress can cause an increase in the secretion of the hormone, cortisol.. which promotes fat storage.Some studies have shown that stress and elevated cortisol tend to cause fat deposition in the abdominal area rather than in the hips. This fat deposition has been referred to as “toxic fat” since abdominal fat deposition is strongly correlated with the development of cardiovascular disease including heart attacks and strokes.
