Free Yourself From Your Ego With This Simple Mental Exercise

Who wouldn’t love to quash excessive self-consciousness?

You know, that third-person perspective camera that’s always playing a live feed of what you’re doing – it’s your own perception of how others are seeing you. It’s a mental restriction that can often keep you from acting 100 percent genuinely yourself in that moment. In extreme cases it can be crippling against acting freely. Living without this restriction is a huge step toward being able to live with complete freedom, acting from your heart, soul and center.

Spiritual practices such as meditation, yoga and qigong all get you closer to the point of being completely present and feeling your energy. A feature of [...]

High-Heel Injuries Doubled… Learn How To Keep You and Your Feet Healthy With 5 Easy Tips

Are women in their 20s and 30s more at risk for high heel injuries than those of past generations? Research suggests, yes. According to a 10-year study from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, the number of injuries sustained from wearing high heels has nearly doubled in the U.S. That equates to 123,355 injuries for women between 2002 and 2012, the report finds. Most of the injuries were sprains, with the majority of women who were treated being in their 20s and 30s. 

So is it time to hang the heels back on the rack? Dr. Emily Spichal, podiatrist and author of Everyday Is Your Runway: A Shoe Lover’s Guide to Healthy Feet and Legs, says, not [...]

Fermented Foods May Help With Social Anxiety… What?!

I know I’ve already exhausted the microbiome subject, but the more I hear about it, the more I like it.

As I’ve mentioned, the microbiome is an important part of our body. Survival of the fittest goes on in there so it can keep us healthy. But it turns out our microbiome not only works to benefit our physical health, but also our mental health.

You’re probably wondering what our gut has to do with our mental state. Don’t worry: I had the same question. It’s quite simple. By upping your good bacteria by ingesting probiotics, you give your microbiome a stronger chance of keeping you healthy and improving your mood.

Why Holistic-Minded Pet Parents Should Consider Pet Insurance

When I brought home my 8-week-old German shepherd puppy five years ago, I thought I knew enough about dogs and had a strong enough of an appreciation of holistic methods that I could easily raise a healthy, happy dog. I was wrong.

Due to a confluence of genetics, vaccinations, environment and probably several other factors yet to be revealed, I have a dog who – while amazingly happy despite his troubles – has had to deal with an assortment of skin problems, ear issues and hypothyroidism. It’s been a roller coaster ride, I tell you. And while I’m sorry he’s had to go through this, I’m so grateful to him for not only showing me what real love is, but for truly opening my eyes to [...]

Diary of a Recovering Tech Addict – How I Learned To Love Life Over Likes

When I look around a roomful of friends or strangers these days, I feel alienated. I often witness a sea of people that seem to have more personal relationships with their devices than other human beings.

This sentiment has been echoed a lot over the past few years: we’re losing touch with reality, addicted to technology, narcissistic, etc. It’s often presented either in a self-deprecating joking manner, or as a cynical view of human nature and conscious decisions.

What I came to find over the past few years was something different – the addiction to our technology and instant gratification is actually an addiction to dopamine. The problem is one of neurochemistry and [...]
