What Do You Think of When You Hear the Word ‘Wellness’?

We can relate the quest for wellness to a theory from psychology. Psychologist, Abraham Maslow believed humans have a basic set of needs that must be met to achieve our potential, which he called self-actualization. He called it the hierarchy of needs. It’s been around for 70 years and it is still used in motivational psychology today. It’s generally represented in pyramid form, like the image above. At the bottom, and most essential for survival are your physiological needs. Things like food,

5 Reasons Sleep Is Important for Your Health

5 Reasons Sleep Is Important for Your Health It may be affecting you in ways you didn’t realize I love to sleep. This wasn’t always true. In my youth, I would have happily skipped out on sleep in exchange for excitement. As I grew older and wiser I realized how much better I felt when I was well-rested. And then came motherhood and with it, a level of sleep deprivation, unlike anything I have ever known before. If you’ve ever spent your days and nights caring for a small creature that feeds e

Here Are Some Things to Consider Before You Head Back to the Health Club

Can you really catch the virus from asymptomatic people? Let’s get this one out of the way first. Yes, you can absolutely catch Covid-19 from a seemingly healthy person. You may feel that if someone is well enough to work out, this means they are healthy and cannot spread Covid-19. The World Health Organization (WHO) caused confusion recently with their statement that asymptomatic spread is rare. Almost immediately expert virologists, including Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Insti

The Benefits of Running in the Summer

Running outside on a summer day in the American Midwest means dealing with the heat. Even waking up early to run or waiting until evening doesn’t offer much of a relief, although it does spare me from the blazing summer sun. All winter long I look forward to the summer weather. Longer days mean no runs in the dark. Warmer temperatures mean I don’t have to bundle up just to find myself overheating a mile into my run and shedding my jacket, gloves, or hat. Summer is my favorite time of year. Yet,

Artificial Intelligence and the Search for Answers

This is dark news indeed, and it comes on the cusp of certain countries and parts of the U.S. beginning to open for business as usual. Personally, I’ve seen Facebook friends posting family pics of a fun-looking and seemingly normal vacation at a Texas beach. Sunbathers and kids sharing a crowded beach with no masks or social distancing anywhere in sight. Images that would normally make me smile caused me to cringed in fear at the sight and wonder how my friend and so many others could be so cava

My Favorite Post-Run Recovery Smoothie Recipe

One of my favorite treats used to be the after-workout smoothie I would get at my health club. Smooth, cold, and delicious it’s the perfect recovery snack. But now, of course, most gyms are closed. I wouldn’t go even if they were open. I don’t know when I’ll feel safe enough to head to the gym again and share that sweaty, close space with other people. But no need to give up my favorite smoothie routine. All I need is a blender and a few ingredients and I can make myself a smoothie just as tast

How to Optimize Your Blog Posts and Articles for Smartphones

Long paragraphs turn into big walls of text on a smartphone. In school, most of us were taught that you begin a new paragraph with a new line of thought. However, these old rules for paragraphs no longer work when everyone is reading on small devices. Long paragraphs can cause users to grow distracted and click away. Paragraphs can now be as short as one line. See how that works? A single sentence creates a pause and a little bit of white space for the eye. Use this technique sparingly to emph

5 Myths About Running That You Shouldn’t Believe and 5 Absolutely True Facts

Let’s separate the fact from the fiction. It’s no surprise that a sport that’s been around for centuries would have developed a lot of myths about it. In 776 B.C., the first event at the first Olympics Games was the footrace. Then came the running boom of the 1970s, when jogging for fitness exploded onto the scene. Fast forward to the 90s, the decade when I began running, and the running world was full of advice. Lots of it included carbo-loading and stretching. That and bad knees, I spent two

The Age of Unregulated Cryptocurrency Is Coming to an End

New regulations are being proposed for cryptocurrency all over the world. It’s too soon to know exactly what effect this will have on the digital currency, but change is coming.
