old dog new tricks

Thought it might be fun to start a new series to share with you. "Old dog, new tricks" is about trying new things. Looking at life with a beginners mind. Instead of saying "no; I've never done that and I don't want to try" maybe you can say, "sure! why not?!" 

My first new trick is DRY BRUSHING. I've always heard about the benefits: 

Removes cellulite
Cleanses the lymphatic system
Removes dead skin layers
Strengthens the immune system
Stimulates the hormone and oil-producing glands
Tightens the skin preventing premature aging
Tones the muscles
Stimulates circulation
Improves the function of the nervous system
Helps digestion

so, sounds like it's something that would be a bonus to my life. Just bought a brush at Whole Foods (under $10) and am starting the brushing. I'll report back with results soon.
