When is the best time to work out?

Posted by Kristen Baureis on 1/9/2018 to Exercise

Do you prefer your sweat session in the a.m. or in the evenings? Now that many of us are back in the gym, it’s important to find the right time that works best for you. I personally prefer working out in the mornings so I have my evenings free, but I also like to sleep in and stay active after work, especially since I’m at my desk all day.

Whether you are an early bird or night owl, here are the advantages to both:

What's your Cup of Tea?

Posted by Kristen Baureis on 11/28/2017 to Stress Management

Tea has been around for centuries, but seems to be on the rise these past few years.  From green to black to herbal tea, there is a type of tea for everyone! All teas provide health benefits, but each has their own way of nourishing the body.  I personally love to switch up my teas daily, depending on my body’s needs. Let’s take a look at the different kinds of tea:

Milk Thistle is an herb that you’ve most likely seen in every supplement section. Depending on where you’ve seen it, it may have been in a capsule, liquid tincture, or in a box of tea bags.

New Chapter Fermented Powders

Posted by Ricky Seda on 10/21/2017 to Vitamins, Herbs, and Minerals

Letting people know the importance of supplementing with digestive aids, probiotics, and increasing our intake of fermented foods has been a focal point of many in the health and supplement industries. And rightfully so, fermented foods are something that most Americans barely eat. With the level of nutrients in our soil being 50 to 70 percent lower than what they were 70 years ago, increasing our fermented food intake is a must nowadays. There are many benefits to eating fermented foods which include immune health, reduced stress, enhanced mood, gentle detoxification, and the list goes on.  Supplementing with fermented vitamins, minerals, greens and superfoods have a ton of health benefits as well.

How to Exercise on a Budget

Posted by Ricky Seda on 8/31/2017 to Exercise

You hear the ads on the radio and television. You see the flyers in parking lots, and get them in the mail. You know the ones I am talking about-the ads telling you to join the gym. They entice you with the deals (one month free, no down payment, bring a guest privileges) and hook you with the classes (Zumba, cycling, personal training) or amenities (indoor pool, saunas, basketball courts, smoothie bar). It all sounds so great until you realize it is yet another monthly bill you can’t afford. The truth is, gym memberships are often more of a splurge than a necessity. In fact, exercise can actually be one the most economical things we can do. So, here are some money saving tips designed to keep your wallet fat while you get fit.

How to Stay Mindful During Back to School Season

Posted by Kristen Baureis on 8/18/2017 to Community

The transition from summer to back to school season can be a chaotic time for both children and parents. Stores are packed with back-to-school sales, vacation dwindles to an end, and routines are set in place for the school year ahead.

It’s easy to stress over this shift, however it’s important to stay mindful during this period. Children already have a lot on their mind: new teachers, new classmates, new classroom and new lessons to be learned. They go from constant play and rest to learning and remaining sedentary for six hours a day. With these three tips, both you and your child will be fully rejuvenated and prepared to tackle the new school year in a healthy, mindful manner.
