Friday Resource Roundup
I thought I’d try something a little different this month and do a weekly resource roundup. I curate a lot of content every week and this is a recap of the best.
Resource Roundup Week #1
How to distinguish the appropriate water workout for yourself.
One patient’s research and observations on float therapy for Fibromyalgia.
This is worth a roadtrip – some secluded hot springs deep in the forest. If you know of somewhere, let me know.
This seems pretty intuitive since less weight equals less load
Alternatives/additions to traditional therapies for optimal mental health.
As a lifetime insomniac, I need all the tips I can get. Share this one with someone who can’t turn off that busy mind at night.
All things music and sound are really outside my skillset but I’m fascinated by the effects they have on us.
This is a great article to help you pick a meditation style for yourself.
And if you want to read a little more about my health journey and why I teach yoga.
My guest post on the Young, Sick and Invisible blog.
Resource Roundup Week #2
The Wall Street Journal looks at several studies to see if exercise improves your mental health.
One study found people who did ‘recreational sports’, like yoga “had a 22.9% reduction in poor mental-health days“.
The world’s oldest yoga teacher recently turned 100.
Since I’ve been doing a series of blog posts on neuroplasticity here’s one from another source.
And some literary comic relief.
My work was shared this week on Healthline.
5 Yoga Poses you can do from your couch on painful days. This is an article on practicing yoga with rheumatoid arthritis, but think about how much time you spend sitting around, like now reading this email (hopefully not in your car). If you could transform all those seated moments into yoga practice moments, think about how many possibilities that opens up?
