If you’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it a hundred times: practice everything in moderation; balance is the key. Of course, even when we’ve let our exercise routine slide, or our healthy eating plan has been slightly derailed (hello holiday season!), we know in our hearts that it’s true.
It’s winter and it’s cold. We get it. But do you really want to be carrying a bunch of excess weight around when Memorial Day gets here, all because you didn’t want to go outside? if you’re in a cold part of the world, it’s time to stop fearing the weather, and instead embrace it when it comes to staying fit.
When it comes to the best diet for health, everyone has their own opinions, prejudices, and ideas. But one thing everyone agrees on is that most of us should be eating more vegetables. 5-10 daily servings, which adds up to between two-and-a-half and five cups full of veggies, is a good target to aim for.
Most of us know that exercise is good for your health, helps you sleep better, and can improve your disposition. And while these benefits are undoubtedly great, you may wonder if there are any other, less talked about ways exercise can improve your life.
With a new year upon us, now is a great time to reflect on 2015 from a yoga perspective. It’s been a pretty crazy year yoga-wise, with old-timers yoga and “doga” (that’s yoga for dogs) being a few of the trends to rise in popularity this year.
The new year is the perfect time to start thinking about fitness resolutions. Everyone can make them, but the problem is that not many people end up going through with what they set out to do. In fact, some may even break them off before they’ve got started.
While almost everyone knows the merits of eating fruits and vegetables, many of us forget that there is another key ingredient that is needed to achieve your best health: minerals. Yes, most people know it’s important to get enough calcium for strong bones and teeth, but what are the other minerals your body needs on a regular basis? Here are some of the most crucial minerals, and the food sources where you can find them.
Do you love yoga? Do you love cats? If you answered yes to both of these questions, then we are about to make your day. That’s because we want to share with you a little knowledge on a growing trend that is starting to gain more recognition across the world.
How many times have you told yourself that you are too busy to do yoga? It happens to us all from time to time, and there is no reason to feel bad about it. However, just because you don’t have time to attend a class doesn’t necessarily mean you have to skip yoga altogether.
Exercise provides various health benefits, including improved cardiovascular fitness, weight loss, blood pressure control, and so much more. However, working out too hard or for too long can put a lot of stress on your joints, thereby increasing the risk of joint injuries.
