Jump Rope Workout

Sometimes, you don’t have time to go to the gym. Maybe you don’t even subscribe to a gym. Heck, maybe you don’t even have your own equipment to work out with at home. That’s okay! You don’t need a ton of equipment to get a workout in. All you need is a jump rope, a can-do attitude, and enough room to jump around in. So, for those days, I created an at-home circuit for you to do whenever, wherever (sing it, Shakira).

How Inpatient Rehab is More Effective Than Outpatient Rehab

When a person becomes an addict, his or her life takes a full 180 degrees turn. And because stopping can be difficult, getting into rehab is the best option. It’s the start of the recovery process.

There are mainly two types of rehab: inpatient and outpatient. With inpatient rehab, you reside or check-in to a rehab facility while you are being treated. What happens is that you basically stop whatever you are doing with your life and just do rehab. With outpatient rehab, you live at home, outside of rehab, once the treatment hours are over. You go on with your life, work or school, and other responsibilities, but you spend a certain amount of time in rehab. This typically includes group meetings, individual or family counseling, and various therapy sessions.

Healthy Oatmeal Raisin Chia Cookies

I’ve been wanting to make some good oatmeal raisin cookies for a while now since we had some raisins in the pantry. After a recipe fail with some protein cookies, I was determined to make a great batch of cookies! After looking around the Internet for some inspiration, I stumbled upon this recipe and knew it was the one to base mine off of. Her recipe had flax seeds in it, but since Hungry is allergic to flax, I used chia seeds instead. This helped the cookies have a great texture and a good extra dose of protein. These oatmeal raisin chia cookies are healthy AND delicious! There is not much sugar in these, so no guilt necessary.

How to Balance Exercise with Work

Having a full-time job (does that ever actually mean only 40 hours a week?) and getting the proper amount of exercise in your week often don’t quite match up. Most times, the job gets the better of you and you either don’t have enough time in the morning or you’re too exhausted after work to get one in. We’d much rather plomp down on the couch than find some shred of willpower to get our body moving. We partnered with Quill to bring you this helpful infographic which shows you how to get exercise even with a hectic work schedule. If you click on it, there’s also a great article about it on their website.

Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook (Stairs Workout)

Since we live over on the West side of Los Angeles near Culver City now, it changes our “natural habitat.” When we used to live in West Hollywood, I would do Runyon Canyon all the time. Now, our go-to weekend spot is Will Rogers. However, there’s a great workout spot in Culver City-ish called the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook (also known as the Culver City Stairs). It’s a huge piece of land, with multiple sports fields, a dog park, play structures, rock wall, overlook areas, a museum, and a big ass hill. I’ve been going there for that big ass hill. It’s an incredible workout and just a 12 minute drive from our apartment.

3 Home Remedies to Help with Hearing Loss

As we grow older, we have to work to prevent certain things. These things can include working out to keep both our physique, as well as our insides, healthy, and this can include getting enough sleep at night to keep our brains healthy and alert. However, this includes hearing loss, or for some, going completely deaf. While most people think this happens as you grow into your senior years, that is false. Hearing loss happens for a number of reasons, and can happen at any age. There are ways at home to combat hearing loss, however. These home remedies are the best ways to ensure you keep your hearing, as well as keep your ears healthy.

Meditation for Resilience

It’s no secret that life ain’t easy. It can get us down in all kinds of ways, life is creative in that manner. It’s easy to feel like there’s no way out and we’re stuck with whatever has been given to us. We can’t always sort the cards that life deals to us, but we can choose how we react to them. And that is what today’s meditation is all about–finding resilience in the face of adversity. What is resilience? According to google, there’s two definitions, both of which I believe apply to what I’m getting at:

  1. the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness.
  2. the ability of a substance or object to spring back into shape; elasticity
