Easy Ways to Bring More Movement Into Your Daily Routine

Movement

We all know that sitting for extended periods of time can have negative effects on our health. But now, recent evidence is showing that standing for too long may also lead to cardiovascular disease, back pain and increased inflammation. If sitting for too long and standing for too long are both potentially detrimental for our bodies, we like to think the solution is simple: move more! According to the official website for the world's Blue Zones, global hot spots where... Read More

happyfeet

Your feet are the foundation for your entire body. After all, we stand on them for most of our lives: we use them for walking, running, jumping and more. Our poor paws endure endless stomping, squishing, cramping, flexing and pointing, which can often lead to imbalances in the structure of our bones, hips and spine. According to biomechanist Katy Bowman, our feet are of prime importance when it comes to maintaining mobility and good balance at any age. In her... Read More

Dynamic Aging

It's a widely held belief in our culture that the older you get, the less mobile and agile you will become.

tai chi

Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese martial art, traditionally practiced as a form of self-defense. Today, the tradition has been carried on for its excellent health benefits for both mind and body. The practice is often referred to as "meditation in motion" for its slow, fluid movements and mindful nature, but Harvard Women's Health Watch says the practice may well be called "medication in motion" because of its ability to prevent and treat many chronic health issues. Low impact, safe... Read More

If you've ever been to a yoga class, you'll know all about the high that comes from stretching and strengthening your muscles, the peace you achieve by breathing deeply, and that euphoric feeling you get during a juicy savasana.
