Every January, gyms all across North America are packed with people declaring to “get in shape” as a New Year’s resolution. Only God knows if we will take better physical care of our bodies in 2019. One thing we DO know for sure is that adding gym time to an already hectic work week doesn’t sound ideal. Hell, there are so many fad diets and online personal trainers available that it seems confusing to even know where to start. Cardio or weight training? Keto or Paleo? I came across a Pop Sugar article by Tamara Pridgett that talks about the role of cardio in fitness and sensible weight loss. Follow her Twitter @TamaraPridgett and stay fit.
First, let me preface this by saluting everyone world wide who is fighting the good fight against crohns disease. I was diagnosed in 2015, after years of medication for a mystery illness affecting my joints, eyes, and skin. The disease affects everyone differently, and can be super difficult to cope with. I came across this article/blog by Meghan Telpner on some tools she used in her healing journey. There is no cure for crohns (they say), but I believe in the healing and transforming of lives through the human spirit and the power of the most high God. Check out the article, and notice how much of these practices could be beneficial to your everyday life regardless of your situation. Spread light! #DoItNow
Well damn…I can honestly say I’ve never considered the art of meditation having a dark side. I think we often consider mindfulness and being in the ‘now’ to only creative positive results. Time and common sense however, will remind us that everything is not for everyone. Check out this interesting article from Spectator Health about meditation and its darkside. Please let me know your thoughts as well.
Now now…I don’t need a study to break this down for me. What we DO know is that eating organic usually cost more. Check out this dope article from NPR, and be sure to wash your organic eats thoroughly before consumption.
Johns Hopkins does it again! These are the type of articles I want to read in 2016.
Another great article from the Huffington Post by Jenny Evans. Why can’t workouts be more like a drinking game?! I think the concept is dope, and I’ll probably implement it into my workout.
Happy Hump Day! I came across a great read from Melissa Dinwiddie about diet, self control and happiness. I’ve seen or experienced some of the struggles she mentioned first hand! Check it out and share your thoughts.
