With all the fancy, hi-tech ways to workout and stay in shape these days it’s easy to forget the benefits of walking.
Yeah, I know it sounds really boring, but walking has tons of health benefits with almost no bad side effects (like more intense activities have).
Check out the article below from Phil Mutz at Little Things for a dose of walking motivation.
“From a very young age, I was taught that exercise is good for my health. This may seem pretty obvious, but that doesn’t mean I always make exercise a priority. After all, going to the gym every day can be an extremely large commitment.” – Phil Mutz
Thanks to Maria Stenvinkel at Huffington Post for helpful stress-management tips.
Hit the link below to read Maria’s thoughts on how to achieve more, while keeping stress under control.
“Let’s be honest. Work is not always easy. Whether you’re employed or your own boss, you got pressure to deliver. Today, that usually means higher demands, in less time, and with more distractions.” – Maria Stenvinkel
Sharing a nicely written (and helpful) article on finding true happiness, courtesy of Bob Burg and Huffington Post.
“Sometimes doing for others does bring happiness. It gives our life depth and meaning, it reminds us of how much power we really have to make a difference. But doing for others isn’t about being selfless, it’s simply about giving, and giving is a natural path to happiness.” – Bob Burg
Have you heard about this new wellness practice – laughter yoga?
I think we all intuitively feel laughter is good for us, but some people are taking the idea a step further.
Sarah Bourassa at Huffington Post offers her experience with laughter yoga in the article below.
“The practice is a combination of laughing exercises and yoga breathing in a group setting. It’s based on voluntary laughing, which often induces real laughter. Laughing is known to have several health benefits, including improving your immune system, relieving pain, reducing stress and boosting your mood.” – Sarah Bourassa
Here’s a fun, new article over on Screen Rant that lists movies that should’ve gotten a sequel, but didn’t.
Movie blogger, Rob Keyes, posted this article earlier today (1-31-16), and I wanted to share it here for all my movie-lover friends.
Check out Rob’s list of movies that deserve a sequel below.
“In an age where all popular entertainment properties seem targeted as potential franchises via spinoffs, sequels, prequels, reboots, etc., not all films get a followup, even if they deserve one.” – Rob Keyes
