As you continue to age, both physical and emotional stress
produces the same contracting consequences; and in so doing,

body's transport system cannot adequately circulate nutrients
and oxygen. The more contracted the tissue, the more additional
resources are required beyond what your body normally needs.
Secondly, in order to compensate for reduced
nutrients caused by soft-tissue contraction, your body
automatically adjusts by making everything else work harder.
This results in increased susceptibility to illness and
Not withstanding previous and current
injuries, it's understandable that the older and stiffer you
become, the more your body becomes exhausted by the end of the
day. Its no wonder you need as much sleep as you do and why you
often wake up feeling tired.
