Life Will Become Better In Just 1 Month If You Read This

Human beings are habitual creatures. You can’t simply change if you’re not prepared for the change itself. That’s right; it’s an uphill task to change things that you are not ready to change. Let’s be honest; can you really start that new diet regime, gym plan or quit smoking if you cannot find within you the strength to do it? “Your energy should come from within you,” says Michael Singer is his book The Untethered Soul. The problem is that we’re tethered to a vicious loop of “started something new, trying…

November Is Diabetes Awareness Month: Here Are 6 Natural Diabetes-Preventing Remedies

November is American Diabetes Month,  which means you should raise your awareness of the dangers of developing diabetes and the treatment options available. About 86 million people in America are at risk of developing diabetes because of the high-sugar Western diet and fast food popularity. But mostly it’s because almost 70 percent of adults are either overweight or obese, and 90 percent of type 2 diabetes sufferers are either obese or overweight.

Stay Healthy: This Man Stretched 10 Minutes a Day For a Month, And He Became A Lot More Energetic Since Then

If you suffer from body pain recurrently (like back pain), or feel that your whole body muscle is very tight and stiff, it’s time to stretch and relieve it within 10 minutes. Why did I start stretching? Like most guys, I hated stretching. Why waste time sitting around when I could be out running? It hurts to learn that I was wrong—throbbed like hell, actually. I hurt my hip doing a leg workout and going running the same day, and had to shut down. I called Doug Kechijian, D.P.T., of Resilient Performance…

My family met with Justin Trudeau last month to learn about Canada’s trans rights bill.

<br> “Come with me. You’re going to meet the prime minister.” My family and I were sitting in the House of Commons in Ottawa on May 17, 2016, when a member of the Canadian Parliament came to find us. We exchanged surprised looks and quietly rose from our seats, making our way out into the halls of Canada’s most important edifice. We were there because we’d been invited to witness history that day. And now, quite unexpectedly, we were about to meet the man at the helm of this historic…

The Great Escape: Month 52 Roundup

Oh, my monthly roundups. They are so ridiculously out of sync with real time now that I’ve considered axing the entire series, as I did recently with Photo of the Week. Yet I know this series has some loyal fans — and I’m one of them! Apologies for the delay, but I suppose better is late than never. My fifty second month of travel was all about exploring whether or not west really is best. As a loyal native East Coaster I normally laugh at such a ludicrous statement, but…

4 Of My Most Viewed Blog Posts This Month and Why They Worked

Sometimes it’s worth taking a look back over you recent posts, weeding out the ones that have done well, and going over them for a brief review. I do this quite regularly to keep tabs on what our readers are responding to, and if there are ways I can expand or reuse the post for further content. It also helps give me ideas for what else we can provide, and also to see if we can replicate the success these posts have seen, on other posts. This episode of the…
