How to start working out when you are new to fitness. A complete beginner's guide.
Do you have a fitness goal in mind?
Do you want to lose 5 lbs or a certain amount of weight?
Perhaps you'll like to have more energy and feel less tired throughout the day.
Maybe you want to reduce your stress or become more productive at work?
That’s great —whatever your health goal is, exercise can bring a transformational change in your health, body, mind, and the overall life.
Easy to say, hard to do. I know.
Working out is hard, sometimes not fun, and even painful in the beginning.
But that's only if you’re going about it the wrong way.
In fact, working out is quite the opposite. It should be fun, enjoyable and very beneficial to every area of your health.
The key is finding and doing the exercise that you enjoy. As you&...
The number one frustration of parents everywhere seems to be figuring out how to deal with power struggles. It’s the theme that keeps repeating itself over and over again, from generation to generation.
We’ve come up with all sorts of nifty ideas about how to solve power struggles…. Timeouts and taking away “privileges” always top the list for the most common techniques. Those are closely followed by more positive strategies like giving choices, being playful, or using distractions.
But none of these options get to the root of the issue, and therefore none of them work in isolation for very long. To figure out how to solve power struggles once and for all, we need to address where they actually come from.
Now let me warn you… What I’m about to share with you is not one of the “traditional” ways of handling power struggles. There’s no gimmicks, rewards, or punishments.
We all love living the van life and travelling in a van, but is living in a van legal in the eyes of the law? Thanks to our favourite Van Life Influencers and the wanderlust-inducing mouth-wateringly addictive content on our Van Life Instagram feeds, more and more people are throwing away the rulebook and giving alternative living a try.
The signs might be hard to spot for some, but now that I have spent a year away from the UK and travelling around Europe with other vandwellers, I’m amazed by how many vanlifers I have seen in and around Yorkshire. When I get into my van at night, it’s nice to know that there are other people in their tiny homes around about, smoke wafting lazily from their chimneys and a glint of light peeping from underneath their curtains.
Einstein may have been a physicist, but he sounded off on all sorts of topics in a way you’d only expect from a certified genius. Albert Einstein quotes are quirky, fun, and at times encouraging and always thoughtful. Here are some of his best quotes on all sorts of topics.
“Although I am a typical loner in my daily life, my awareness of belonging to the invisible community of those who strive...
What is an Easel Calendar?
An easel is a type of unique photo calendar that stands on a wooden easel with 12 months’ worth of 5X7 inch cards. This differs from built-in spiral-bound desktop calendars. The thick matte cardstock makes this monthly desk calendar an excellent way to revisit your favorite photos and memories every day. Unlike traditional wall calendars, these calendars can stand up directly on the tabletop with their built-in support to help you keep track of your important dates from the start of the New Year. They make great gifts for loved ones or personal daily planners.
Ausangate Mountain, an “Apu” (or holy mountain) in the Quechua culture, rises to 20,945 feet in the Peruvian Andes, hovering nearly 3,885 feet above Rainbow Mountain in the distance. For perspective, that’s 3,345 feet higher than the Mt. Everest base camp, 6,456 feet higher than the tallest mountain in the Continental United States, and nearly 15,665 feet higher than the “mile high city,” Denver, Colorado.
After a punishing two-hour trek straight up, sitting at the peak of Montana de Colores (Rainbow Mountain) next to a small stone wall built by the direct descendants of the Incan people, I popped open my first beer and spun in a dizzying swirl of colors. Ausa...
Learn how to make the best simple avocado toast! It’s the perfect quick breakfast, lunch or snack that will keep you energized for hours. Additional topping ideas included!
Avocado toast is my go-to breakfast these days. I used to be a sweet breakfast person, eating only oatmeal with fruit, peanut butter jelly toast or a smoothie every morning. Then I gave avocado toast a try and never looked back! It is SO incredibly delicious, and I love how full and energized I am until lunch time.
If I happen to eat something else for breakfast (pancakes, waffles, tofu scramble, cinnamon rolls…) I will often eat avocado toast for lunch or an afternoon snack. S...
I visited Dublin ages ago and had been dying to go back ever since. While Dublin is a great time, I knew I had barely scratched the surface. The Emerald Isle has so much to offer and it truly takes a full round-trip to take in the beauty…and what better way to do that than by taking a road trip through Ireland?
The best way to see Ireland is to rent a car and circle the island. I did a similar road trip in Iceland and it’s held a special place in my heart ever since. Visiting the villages and sites far from the tourist path connects you with a country in a way you can’t experience during a quick city break.
Looking to find the gold at the end of the rai...
