I’ve always heard both amazing and not-so-amazing things about yoga.  Some people swear by it while others don’t give it the time of day.  I’ve always wondered why some people use it as their main form of exercise so I decided to do a little research!  Here’s why you should check out yoga for yourself! 🙂

  • It increases your muscle strength.Chelsea Crockett - Yoga Believe it or not, yoga isn’t all about relaxing.  It actually takes a lot of strength and can challenge you more than you expect.  There are lots of different moves that require strength endurance and strong muscles!
  • It straightens your posture. I know for me I could use a little help on my posture!  Yoga helps align and strengthen your spine which, in turn, strengthens your posture.  I never even thought about that but it really does help!
  • It increases your ability to focus. Yoga takes a lot of focus on your breathing and movements.  One of yoga’s biggest purposes is to learn how to focus on the present and relax!  Studies have actually shown an increase in coordination, focus, memory, and other things, as well!
  • It helps the upkeep of your joints. Along with an increase in flexibility, yoga moves your body in ways it isn’t used to moving in.  It helps move your joints in several different motions which helps loosen and stretch them out and makes them even healthier!

Get out of bed and get your stretch on!  You won’t regret it!

Why You May Be Feeling More Forgetful

Lately I have been feeling more and more forgetful and I was having a hard time figuring out why. We all have spacey moments, but if you have been feeling more forgetful than normal then something may be up with your health. Here are a few reasons that you may be feeling a bit more forgetful than normal.

  1. Lack of sleep: Sleep is vital for y
    our brain to recharge and store 91d7edc25a31b801b7c93f6fd7ce87f7memories. Lack of sleep worsens your ability to focus and learn, and sleep is necessary for storing memories so you can recall them in the future!
  2. More stress: When you are stressed or have anxiety your brain can become overloaded and discombobulated.
  3. High hypoglycemic foods: What you eat impacts your memory. Sugary foods cause a rapid spike and drop in blood sugar, and this negatively impacts memory. Foods like this are refined grains and sugary foods.
  4. Posture: We look down at our phones way too much. We carry a lot of tension in our head, neck, spinal cord, and brain. This effects our neurotransmitters which effect memory!

If you feel like you have been frequently forgetful, then one of these things could be the issue!

Everyday Habits of Energetic People

Do you constantly feel worn out and exhausted? We all have that one energetic friend who never seems to be tired and is peppy and, well, energetic all the time. If you adopt a few daily habits of energetic people, you could find it a lot easier to stay pumped and positive! Here is how to keep your energy levels high and your mood even higher.

  1. Get enough sleep: Duh! If you want to be an energetic person, you need to make sleep a top priority. Getting between 6 and 9 hours of sleep a night is key.FullSizeRender (8)
  2. Workout daily: When you are tired and low on energy, odds are the last thing you want to do is hit the gym. But, working out is one of the best things you can do to boost your energy and protect your health! Making exercise a daily habit boosts your self-esteem, improves your mood because of the endorphins it releases, and fights fatigue.
  3. Have good posture: Yes, standing up straight and practicing good posture is a big deal! Poor posture causes your body to ache, and it can also cause more serious issues like depression and increasing your risk of developing certain diseases, mess with your circulation, and stress you out. Having good posture makes you feel and appear more confident.
  4. Fake it till you make it: Energetic people act energetic, even when they don’t really feel it. I know all of us have been in situations where you are with a group of people who are having fun and you are feeling tired or just aren’t into it, but you fake like you are having fun so you don’t bum others out. Acting like you have energy can actually trick your body into feeling more energetic, and this can be as simple as putting more energy into your voice!

If you strive to be the energetic, lively one in the group, follow these daily habits!
