Frozen Shoulders Need Warm Pads

I don’t know about you but this cold weather is taking a toll on my health. My shoulders are frozen… I don’t mean so much by the cold, but by the effort to stay warm. The chill causes my muscles to contract and I find myself with tight tight tight tight muscles and my shoulders are up around my earlobes, all trying to stay warm. I wear heavy sweaters and scarfs and occasionally a hat as I sit here in front of my computer trying to type and sound witty at the same time. It’s not easy.

A good friend recommended a heating pad, one that has an auto shut off so you don’t burn yourself to a crisp… and I use that at night…

I used to have one of those bags of barley that you stick in the microwave and drape over your head to warm the cockles of your brain… but I can’t find it.

Anyway… I’m frozen. What about you?

since most body heat is released through the head, I would suggest you wear a hat 🙂

A week or so you had a blog about going to the gym. I don’t know about you but I get very warm at the gym and it stays with me for sometime after. I’ve seen people with books on treadmills as they are walking. A few weeks ago there was an article on Yahoo bout some workplace that have their people who can opt out for having a desk of sorts mounted on a treadmill instead of sitting in a cube all day.

So . . . to keep warm, wear a hat (preferably stylish – like the ladies in the Red Hat Society do) . . . and . . . option 1 – bring your laptop to the gym, set it for no more than 2 mph and get some work done AND stay warm. Option 2 – buy a treadmill for the office and have your accountant find a way to write if off as a business expense. Option 3 – forget options 1 and 2, Go to the local packy and bring JW home with you.
