"I've missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed."

Exercise & Fitness


by Taylor Ryan

Yes, it is annoying but it can actually cause real issues!

Editor's Note from Melanie Webb: I'm fascinated by ancient methods of exercise. The more I learn about the body, the more I realize that there is more to us than flesh and bones. As you watch this Qi Gong move to clear negative energy from the body, I encourage you to think about how you can integrate this type of holistic, energetic movement into your own health and wellness practice.

Running, biking, swimming, tennis, soccer, strength training (the list goes on and on) are all fantastic ways to improve your health, fitness and overall well-being. However, sport can be a dangerous business and some of the worst injuries occur without the involvement of another person. There are a host of injuries which are common to many sports, and preventing them is key to staying in play. A few helpful hints can steer you clear of some of these more common injuries.

When we hear the word “muscle,” we generally think about the biceps, triceps, glutes and shoulders. But there’s an overlooked area of the body that deserves some much-needed attention: Your feet. Think about it: Your feet are the foundation of your body and your life. Whether you’re an elite athlete or an occasional walker, your feet are responsible for carrying you everywhere you go in life...

If you ask most people what’s the best pre- or post-workout meal or snack, they’ll probably mention sports drinks, protein powders, protein bars, and anything but plain old food...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: I have to admit it is so easy to reach for a protein bar before or after a workout, but these suggestions from Valerie remind me what eating real food does for my body's recovery, not to mention the anti-aging benefits.

 

Exercise & Fitness


by Arthur Rosenfeld

Folks have been asking lately why they continue to catch cold or come down with a flu now and then even when they're really doing their best to live properly. They watch their diet, get plenty of sleep and exercise regularly, monitor their stress levels, try not to worry too much, even practice meditation or a mind/body discipline.

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Sometimes I think I shouldn't get sick or become injured if I do everything right and try to live in a healthy way....and if I do become sick or injured, what did I do wrong? Arthur's article is a wonderful reminder that life is plastic and in a continual flow. It's the overall quality of life that living in a healthy way provides that gives the joy in living.

The Secret to Eating Carbs

by Kathy Smith

When you munch on a muffin or take a swig of Gatorade, here’s what happens to the carbs that you just put in your mouth; they’re converted into glucose, which is essentially the body’s energy. The problem is that there’s only so much glucose that you actually need. The rest is converted into glycogen and stored in the liver and in your muscles.
