I say give on a try and see how you feel. If you feel good, it’s fine. Don’t do it every single day, but if you do it, it works and it doesn’t make you feel any worse, then you’re just fine.
The trick is to just start doing it. Get up and get moving. If you’re tired in the afternoon, do a quick intense workout – even if it’s 5 minutes long – at lunchtime. You’ll perk up again from the energy it gives you.
I bought my yoga mat about 15 years ago, so it really doesn’t owe me anything. It is starting to look squashed and not as “lively” as it once did. When I first bought my mat, pretty much the only one you could get was blue and there was only one thickness. Now, I’m looking and there are so many options. What thickness do I need?

Ever since the pandemic started, I feel like my heart rate is already way up and when I drink coffee, it shoots up higher. I think it’s the caffeine in it. I can’t seem to tolerate more than about half a coffee, or any diet pills right now. I really want to use them. Are there any I should try that won’t make me feel like I’m having a heart attack.

I don’t think your depression and your lifestyle are separate. I’m not saying your lifestyle causes your depression. I’m really not. What I mean is that your depression makes it harder for you to live a healthy lifestyle, but the unhealthy part of your lifestyle also affects your depression symptoms. Take your first steps when you can. Get s…[Read more]
If your doctor told you you’re low in B12, did they also tell you how to supplement it and how much? Once your B vitamins are balanced, it might help your metabolism, so maybe you’ll lose weight easier if you’re already dieting properly. Careful with how you supplement B vitamins. They can have surprising side effects from doing it wrong. I’d…[Read more]
