In September I wrote a piece about digital detoxes and how to address digital addiction. As all the new phones are being realized and everyone is flocking towards new technology I received a response from Anastasia Dedyukhina, author of Homo Distractus, and have since been discussing the trend that we, as a global society, seem to… Continue reading Digital Distraction
Running is one of the easiest sports that you can get into. You can run anywhere and anytime you’d like (as long as there are no signs forbidding you to do so) - road, dirt, grass, treadmill, track, gravel, sand, or any other terrain you can imagine!

According to legend, Pheidippides ran the approximately 25 miles to announce the defeat of the Persians to some anxious Athenians. Not quite in mid-season shape, he delivered the message "Niki!"

This is something we frequently hear people say about relatively small things, like the grocery store being out of your… Continue reading Flirting with Depression
So, I logged into Facebook today from my laptop (because I don't use the app on my phone... maybe that's weird but whatever, I just don't like to have that extra level of being constantly connected to everyone).
