My Theresa Workout #9: Don’t Forget to Stretch

Tamu's TV | FITNESS 

I will be the first to admit it, I hardly ever stretch, even when I workout with my trainer Kirwin. I usually make it to the gym just in time for my session, and I often have to run to an appointment immediately after I cool down. And, boy do I regret not stretching in the following days when I experience blocked leg muscles and tight shoulders. Thank goodness I also practice yoga and Pilates, and I’m able to workout some of the kinks and tend to my sore muscles during those sessions. But aside from those moments, I always declare that I need to prioritize stretching more. Your muscles need it as part of their recovery process. We demand so much from our bodies throughout the course of our daily lives and especially when we workout . It’s only fair that we reward ourselves with a good stretch. So here is a little encouragement for us both: DON’T FORGET TO STRETCH! Your muscles will thank you for it.

On Household Hair Care Products with Just Add Founder Mesha Korte


In this video collaboration, Mesha Korte, Founder of Just Add, a natural hair care brand, shares how she founded her company.

Around the time Mesha moved to Italy she cut her relaxed hair. Upon arriving, like many women of color who move to European cities, she could not find any products suitable for her freshly chopped curls. Does Mesha’s story sound familiar to you? I experienced a similar dilemma after moving to Milan and I wrote about it in my Our Hair, Don’t Care installment. After some advice from her Trinidadian mother, Mesha headed into her kitchen to create the homemade potions that would evolve into the products she offers with Just Add. The brand gets its name from the fact the products are made into powder and the user just has to add water. Clever right?
