Jar it! The latest game changer to staying healthy

No time for making a healthy lunch or grab a healthy snack ? I get it. Sometimes life gets in the way and taking time to eat something beyond the quick and easy can get pushed aside even though you have sworn to eat healthy and look after yourself. But if all you have to do is unscrew a lid, find a fork, and give a little stir, read more…


Are you running out of fuel to head in the direction you really want to in life?

Are you one of the many people who is busy getting everything done but too exhausted to enjoy the things that really matter- your family, children, fitness, holidays?

Most people have amazing lives, but can’t enjoy their lives anymore because they don’t have the physical energy to do so.

As Dr Libby puts it so brilliantly “You have too many “open loops”, or “open tabs”.“You know when you have too many apps open on your phone and it drains your battery faster?” she…


Are you guilty of “Pphubbing” (the act of partner phone snubbing)?

Is your Cell phone negatively impacting your relationship? You know those times when you’re with your partner but you’re both spending more time on your phones than engaged with each other. You think keeping your phone on the dinner table or by your side for a quick look is totally not a big deal, Yeah, well, you’re wrong. It’s a huge deal. Technically, you’re both guilty of “pphubbing,” the act of “partner phone snubbing,” which new research shows could cause long-term negative effects in your relationship and personal life…


Are you at war with yourself? Are there times when you feel you are not enough? Does the caption of your life read “Something is wrong with me”

So many of our moments are filled with judgment about ourselves and others. This affects how we are with others. Tara Brach says “It’s very hard to be intimate with another person when in the background you’re feeling like if they really knew who you were, they’d reject you. The sense of unworthiness gets in the way of intimacy. It stops us from being creative or taking risk or being spontaneous. There’s…


Orthorexia is the term for a condition that includes symptoms of obsessive behaviour in pursuit of a healthy diet. We as a society are breeding a new generation of food-restriction junkies who are victims of their own compulsive behaviours around food. So how do you know if your restrictions have gone too far? Where do you draw the line? And how do you know if you have an eating disorder like orthorexia?

Robin Berzin Md writes in her article “Are We Clean Eating Our Way To An Eating Disorder?” the answer is in how you approach your eating choices in…


Switch to DIY Homemade Cleaners today and prevent exposure to nasty chemicals! Here’s to a less toxic home

The Environmental Working Group says that everyday household cleaners contain some shocking fine-print warnings such as “serious burns,” “lung inflammation” and “probably carcinogenic.”That’s why it’s a good idea to either opt for organic cleaners or better yet, make your own mixture.

7 Characteristics Associated With Long Life (And How to Cultivate Them)

As much as we focus on food and fitness as the “physical” arbiters of health and longevity, there appears to be much more to it. In fact, most research fails to find any grand commonalities in the diet and fitness patterns of the longest lived. From Okinawans with their sweet potatoes to Japanese centenarians with their dairy to the Ashkenazi with their higher rates of smoking, drinking, and lower rates of formal exercise to the 107-year-old with her butter, no exercise, and mistrust of medicine to the super-centenarians with…


When it comes to overall health and weight loss, there’s an excess of advice out there. Unfortunately, most of it is terrible, misguided, outdated and scientifically disproven.

This ubiquitously poor advice can create weight loss roadblocks and even damage your health. Here are four prevalent misguided myths that drive me nuts.

Myth #1 — All Calories are Created Equal

A calorie is a calorie, right? Wrong. This myth that refuses to die keeps people from getting and staying healthy, as well as losing weight and keeping it off.

The current thinking is as long as we burn more calories…


Being active throughout the day trumps exercise

#Exercise alone is not enough. Working out three times a week is not enough. Being active throughout the day is what keeps you healthy.

On average, we now spend more time sitting down
(9.3 hours) than sleeping in a given day. The human body is not built for this, and the obesity and diabetes it contributes to is a major public health problem. Watching your diet and exercising 30 minutes a day will not be enough to offset many hours of sitting.

The amount of time you spend seated adds up quickly. Let’s…
