To become less stressed: Don’t work on weekends. Work on taking one media and internet-free day. Take a break from checking email on Saturdays or Sundays. Instead, spend time with friends, family, a good book or go to a movie or some other fun activity. Your body and mind will thank you for it!
Arctic sea ice cover has roared back quickly over the last few years and nobody knows why. Not one scientist on the planet can tell you. It might be noted, of course, that there was no shortage of explanations when there was a cyclical downturn, mostly to do with humans having something to do with it. Ice melting at the Poles is still one of the crucial supports for the entire Net Zero agenda. Since around 1990, people have been talking about how human-emitted carbon dioxide is reducing the amount of Arctic sea ice. Despite the impressive recent ice recovery, talk of ice caps melting are everywhere. In his recent Frozen Planet II series, Sir David Attenborough made a number of model-produced references to the Arctic being free of summer sea ice by 2035. Despite the overwhelming evidence from the past that global temperatures can rise and fall rapidly, an entire climate industry (backed by almost unlimited transfers of wealth from often poor to rich people), has sprung up forecasting Armageddon if there is a rise of a few fractions of a degree centigrade.

The body is all interconnected, so when your hip flexors are tight from sitting all day, for instance, this can create an anterior tilt in the pelvis and cause tightness in the hamstrings, according to the American Council on Exercise. (Make sure to regularly stretch your hips if you spend a lot of time sitting.)
Rene Cailliet M.D., famous medical author and former director of the dept. of physical medicine and rehabilitation at the Univ. of Southern California stated: “Head in forward posture (Tech/Text Neck) can add up to 30 pounds of abnormal leverage on the cervical spine (neck). This can pull the entire spine out of alignment. Forward head posture (FHP) may result in the loss of 30% of vital lung capacity. These breath-related effects are primarily due to the loss of the cervical curve, which blocks the action of the hyoid muscles, especially the inferior hyoid responsible for helping lift the first rib during inhalation.” It's not uncommon to observe 2 inches of anterior head placement in new patients. Would you be surprised that your neck and shoulders hurt if you had a 20-pound watermelon hanging around your neck? Left uncorrected, FHP will continue to increase. Chiropractic can be very corrective when it comes to FHP. Who do you know who might benefit from chiropractic care?
Research indicates that Kale is not only a very nutritious vegetable, but including it in your diet may help lower levels of bad cholesterol and reduce your risk of heart disease as well. Kale contains bile acid sequestrants, which are resins that have showed promise in lowering levels of bad cholesterol.
Don't spend your precious time asking "Why isn't the world a better place?" It will only be time wasted. The question to ask is "How can I make it better?" To that there is an answer.
