Essential features of a great business:

4 big benefits of stretching

Obviously, stretching increases flexibility, but so what?

First, flexibility can increase “stability, balance, and ease of movement,” as Michelle Matte at Livestrong.com describes, which reduces risk of injury, not just in athletic activities, but in everyday life.

Stretching also encourages the production of lubricants in our joints, as AZ Central’s Andrea Cespedes tells us. This, combined with the relief of tension around your joints earned by stretching, can ease arthritis and other joint pain.

After sitting at a desk or behind a steering wheel for hours and hours on end, your posture can start to go. Stretching out your back, neck and chest will not only help improve posture, but work towards alleviating the lower back pain and neck tension caused by long-term slouching.

Speaking of long days working and commuting, stretching is a great stress reliever. When combined with deep breathing (as used in yoga) stretching can help you calm down and ease your mind, while loosening all the areas where you hold tension. Cespedes also explains that various stretches can even aid in hormonal balance, digestion, and blood pressure, which can all be associated with stress.

In short, if stretching is not a part of your routine, it should be.

Heart Of Sliema

Sliema, coming from the word Sliem,meaning `peace’, was once a fishing town on the peninsula across Grand Harbor from Valletta. The town began to develop rapidly in the early 20th century as a summer resort for wealthier Valletta residents. Their elegant villas and town houses line the quiet, inland streets.

The Sliema promontory offers on one side stunning views across to Valletta and on the other, open sea views. The promenade, which runs for several kilometers from Gzira just south of Sliema to St Julian’s, is ideal for walker and joggers. There are plenty of seats along the promenade and on summer evenings the seafront becomes a sociable meeting place for locals.
The coastline has two tower fortifications: a De Redin watch tower built in the 17th century; the other was built by the British in neo-gothic style in the 1880s. Nearby Valletta with its historic attractions and corporate importance is also very close the area is considered to be most central on the island.

Sliema, once a fishing town, began to develop in the early 20th century as small resort for wealthier Valletta residents. Their elegant villas and town houses line the quieter back streets. The sea front from Gzira to St Julian’s, which offers first stunning views across to Valletta and then open horizons, is a popular meeting place and ideal for walkers and joggers.
St Julian’s and Paceville are Malta’s main nightlife areas. Picturesque St Julian’s Bay, still used by fishermen, is lined with bougainvillea-clad cafés and restaurants.

The top places to visit in Sliema are the Mediterraneo Marine Park where you can enjoy a day swimming with dolpfhins.

Teatru Salesjan:
Now, 105 years after the official opening of the theatre is redefining its identity.

The Teatru Salesjan is now operating as a cultural hub, opening its doors to new artists who need an affordable space in which to work and enhance their work. In doing so, the theatre would re-establish itself as a ‘home’, ‘school’ and ‘playground’ for creative work to flourish and for artists and audiences to become direct protagonists of culture.

Another kids friendly plays for both parents and children is the Playzone:

-A clean, unbroken play area with happy children and friendly parents. It felt almost like a social gathering of families. Language was no barrier, many different nationalities played together happily.

The Beach:

Sliema has no sand beaches, though in Malta any stretch of waterfront that gives access to the sea is termed ‘beach’. On Tower Road, in front of the Preluna Hotel, a broad expanse of large smooth sandstone rock slabs bordering the sea becomes a summer ‘beach’ with metal handrails (set into the rocks) giving safe access for bathers. Alternative swimming and sunbathing is offered by a number of seafront lidos, both on Tower Road and on the point of the peninsula, known as Qui-Si-Sana. There are neither beaches nor lidos on the Sliema Ferries/Strand side.
