I’m a frequent flyer. I fly so frequently that I have TSA pre-check and enough points to go around the world on two different airlines. I recently took a two-week family vacation strictly on hotel points. I’ve learned to pack efficiently and only take one carry-on bag for any trip lasting fewer than seven days.
Spring has arrived and it’s time to stay invigorated after a long winter! Why not start with our fun and informative Twitter party about the POWER of protein? Join us on Wednesday, April 23 from 9-10 pm EST to talk about ways to stay energized, hosted by our peppy Healthy Perspectives blogger, Zippy Sandler!
It’s no secret that reading is good for you; I believe it’s something that we all take for granted, but why exactly is it good? Originally I would have answered that it feeds your mind, boosts your vocabulary, and helps you to relax.
The first thing to understand about cholesterol is that there are three types of cholesterol levels that health care professionals measure. The three types are: Total Cholesterol, High Density Lipoprotein (HDL) Cholesterol, and Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) Cholesterol. Triglycerides are another type of fat in your bloodstream that health care professionals also measure.
The beach can strike fear in the hearts of brave men. It isn’t the threat of man-eating sharks, jellyfish, or rip currents that make them shiver. It is the thought of having to remove their shirts and reveal a winter’s worth of overindulgence.
We all know there are things we could and should do for our ‘own good’ to make our lives better. Eating, sleeping, exercising more, being present… it is so easy to say, but when you make a huge list, it can feel overwhelming. For me, breaking it down and tackling one thing at a time allows ‘change’ to feel truly possible for me. That’s why Puritan’s Pride’s commitment to One Small Change really resonated with me.
Clearly, drinking water is good for us. Our bodies need it in order to stay hydrated, to function properly, and to stay healthy, focused and fit. Unfortunately, a lot of high-dollar marketing revolving around health campaigns and bottled water companies has led us to believe too many water myths.
We’re all guilty of eating until we’re not only full; we eat until we’re really full. Have you ever been to a restaurant and forced yourself to finish that huge steak? That massive bowl of pasta? You’re nearly ready to burst, but because your plate is still half full, you keep going. Chances are your restaurant meal is supersized, even if you’re not at a fast food restaurant.
Have you ever inhaled a familiar aroma and suddenly found yourself daydreaming about a happy memory? Scents have a unique ability to make us feel strong emotions, so it stands to reason that the art of Aromatherapy may actually affect our mood.
I live in a world of coffee drinkers. There is a coffee shop on every corner. It is often the main thing I hear people clamor for first thing in the morning, and it comes in so many different varieties that the uninitiated could easily be overwhelmed. I will admit to indulging myself as well (once I figured it all out), but the truth is, I was born in to a tea-drinking family.
