Exercise is a major part of many people’s lives. You might squeeze a trip to the gym in after work, start your morning with a sunrise jog or lift weights at your home gym whenever you can find the time. Regardless of when or how often you exercise, though, everyone has to manage one more important thing shortly after: recovery.
For people living in the northern hemisphere, the approach of fall and winter means saying goodbye to long, summer days and welcoming longer nights and shorter bursts of sunlight. The sunrise each morning will continue to get later and later, and the sunset earlier and earlier until mid-December, when we experience the shortest day of the year.
Pregnancy comes with a lot of changes. Aside from the obvious, expecting mothers can expect a few more things, such as cravings, morning sickness, swelling, mood swings—the list goes on and on. But one thing women don’t always expect is how much pregnancy can change their hair…and how the changes can continue even after they give birth!
As fall progresses into winter, the days will continue to get shorter and shorter. For many people, work, athleticism and everyday activities become more difficult to accomplish because of the lack of light outside. However, work and life don’t stop simply because the sun isn’t out to greet us in the morning or when we return home from work.
The more we learn about nutrition and food suppliers, the more it seems like America’s obesity epidemic is the result of a coordinated plan to emphasize unhealthy items. It’s abundantly clear that unhealthy items are advertised much more frequently, and the coffee shop you visit every morning likely displays one healthy item for every eight unhealthy ones.
Deodorant is something you probably don’t think much about—aside from needing to apply it before running out the door in the morning. You may ponder over your desired brand or scent in the store, but have you ever looked at the ingredients? Do you know what your deodorant actually contains and what it might do to your body?
When’s the last time you got a really great night of rest? For many women, it’s been a while. Too long, actually! There always seems to be something that interrupts the sleep cycle and leaves you feeling groggy and sluggish when it’s time to get up in the morning.
Most people with medium-length to long hair have a “go-to,” everyday hairstyle. To make life simpler when getting ready in the morning, you might throw your hair up into a high ponytail, a French braid or plait or a classy bun at the nape of your neck. This style works on you, you feel stylish and it’s easy to accomplish…but it might also be causing problems.
