Post image for How To Survive Outdoor Exercise In Winter

It might be the coldest time of year, but that’s not stopping us from enjoying a nice workout outside. Learn how we’re surviving with these 5 tips! Read More

I personally prefer running in the winter, even with minus temperatures. What I find works with my body is that I need to feel cold when I get out of the house and start running. That way I know that 10 minutes later when I have warmed up, I won't actually feel too hot. Feeling too hot will make me feel tired faster and I just don't like the feeling. Also I take a few deep breaths when coming out, with arms up, to stretch my lungs and introduce the cold air smoothly in my body. Too quick of a transition between warm and cold has created a pain in my lungs before. In terms of layer, a thermo layer + a running fleece layer is the best. I also have thin gloves but sometimes when I can't find them, I just put on a black pair of socks on my hands which work too! I'd also make sure to have my ears and throat protected, that's super super important. And only stop running a few steps away from home, because once you stop that's where the risk of catching a cold happens the most.

I live in Colorado so it can get pretty cold, and unfortunately I'm ALWAYS in high altitude. I cover my ears with one, sometimes 2 headbands, and also wear a neck gaiter that breathes to cover my mouth when it's really cold. I wear wool socks, not running socks. And 2-3 layers of leggings. Some people like to add crampons to their shoes when running on packed snow, it can definitely get slippery. There's something so empowering about running on a bitter cold day or evening!

Post image for Is Therapy For You?

Have you ever wondered if therapy might be for you?Read More

This is beautiful. The way Haley describes her depression is very real, and very relatable. I know this feeling personally, and sometimes the best thing to do is to talk it out. Too many emotions inside that need to get out, and words are a great conduit of energy to release. I am an acupuncturist and it is a medicine that has helped me a lot in so many ways, and I hope to share it with other people as well, as it helps a lot with mental and emotional health. I have realized some people just really need to talk and share their story. It is a very healing modality. Thank you for the wise words. http://seedoflifeacupuncture.com

First, brava, Haley! Second, I love that this article was in the "beauty" category. Seeking inner health and being a beautiful person on the inside:) It just makes me happy. This whole article's existence makes me happy. You guys make me happy. Third, I'd like to add that most heath insurance plans, including Medicare and Medicade, according to people I know who have those plans, include mental health care. It might not cover extended stays at swanky rehab facilities, but seeing a therapist weekly for 45 minutes should only cost a co-pay. I also know people who can't afford the $15 co-pay, and one who has worked something out with his therapist to pay that portion when he can (when he gets extra shifts at work.) There are also places where one can seek out therapy for free: most colleges have mental health care if you're a student, staff member, or faculty member. I know that RVAP and DVIP (the rape victim advocacy program and the domestic violence intervention program) in my town both provide therapy for people who are working with them/ living at the women's shelter/ etc. Try calling a local crisis line or asking at your local library if you need help and can't figure out how to find it. Fourth, it's scary to start therapy sometimes, especially if you want to examine old wounds. Know that you can meet multiple therapists with different styles and personalities before you pick one to see regularly; not everyone gets along with every therapist, and that's okay. Also, you can talk to your therapist about your relationship, building trust, etc., even if you've never had a conversation like that before. "I'm scared" or "This is new to me" or "What are we going to do in therapy?" are all valid. They're a professional therapist; if they do anything besides listen to you and respond honestly and with understanding/ empathy, the world has turned upside down. On that note, it took me six months to tell my therapist why I was in therapy, but that was okay. I had a lot of shame and fear to get through first. And I did. Therapy has helped me a lot, and I'd recommend it for anyone looking to make changes in their life. If you're prepared to walk through that door and be even a little honest with yourself, then therapy is for you. (You can always try it and then stop if you don't like it; what's it going to hurt, really?) Okay, last thing, I promise: I finally get to toot my own horn a little bit. If you want to learn more about MY story and my journey with therapy, check out my blog at ikillmydarlings.wordpress.com. (Please don't be put off by the violent title. It's a literary reference.)

Hey Anna! Keep up the good vibes and stay safe! I'm so glad to hear other people are having successful solo trips (and taking gorgeous photos along the way). In October and November I took a month long trek across the country by myself. Started in Chicago, up north to Seattle then down the coast to Southern California and back home via Route 66. It was unbelievable. Here's my travel blog from the trip: kaitlynherzog.wix.com/wildwest Good luck! K

Post image for I Went Back to Yoga After Eight Years and Here’s What Happened

A month-long journal chronicling a return to yoga after eight years…Read More

Debra -Jan 07, 2016, 12:10PM
I found yoga in 1997 and it quickly spoke to me on so many levels. Over the course of the next 15 years I stopped and started my practice. In 2012 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. After treatment I was left depleted and lost. My neice visited me, and being a yoga teacher, she talked to me about going back to yoga. I did and almost 3 years later my practice is stronger than it has ever been.. It is sometimes hard to notice the subtle differences when I practice on a regular basis....but boy I can surely notice when I don't! To say yoga has had a healing effect on me would be putting it mildly. I love yoga. It challenges me every single time. Mentally and physically. That is different than saying it's hard. It has become a necessity, it has become the great love of my life.
Loren -Jan 06, 2016, 11:09PM
Yoga can be really hard. I feel like my best experiences of yoga were with the intention to relax and not to work out. I did a month of yoga in Rishikesh and it was a very different experience than yoga in NY. The intention behind the class and the treatment of students was more holistic and not as bodies moving. I'm kind of bummed I haven't found classes like that in the U.S but I'd like to start doing yoga at home. I also found amazing yoga classes in Miami on the beach sunset/sunrise, yep it's amazing!
