The Burnout and Your Health

The Burnout and Your Health

Of course I’ve touched on this before. It’s a frequent and relevant circumstance for city dwellers, entrepreneurs, and hard workers in general. I may not seem like a very go-with-the-flow kind of girl, but the truth is I very much can be. The trouble comes when the flow features that which is too much, too fast and all at once. All of a sudden, you’re riding a wave that’s surpassing important details, and certainly riding right over restoration (let’s use sleep, for an example). The result can be chronic guilt, exhaustion and malaise. I can’t stress the importance of taking some time to put your wellness on the front burner, to...

Highs and Lows Lead to the Healthiest Balance

Highs and Lows Lead to the Healthiest Balance

We all know it can be so difficult to keep a balance sometimes.  Sometimes we feel like going really hardcore, other times we need to be a little bit more lenient.

Top 10 Myths in Health and Fitness

Top 10 Myths in Health and Fitness

1. Carbs are bad. Don’t you dare. The body needs carbs. Be careful about eating too many empty and starchy carbohydrates like wheat (bread, cereals, cookies, pizza) and opt instead for more complex ones (brown rice, legumes like beans and chick peas, oatmeal). Fruits and vegetables are carbohydrates too and very good for us – but stick to 2-3 fruits/day to ward off sugar cravings. 2. Cardio is best for fat loss. Nope. Cardio is great for the heart. Fat loss comes from a well-conditioned metabolism – so building lean muscle tissue and eating frequent, clean and balanced meals are king. Do your strength building in a cardio-blasting circuit and...
