Health Spotlight: Match Your Exercise To Your Mood

September 14, 2018

    One barrier that many people face to getting into an exercise routine is having unrealistic expectations of what types of activity work best for their bodies and schedules. The good news is that any type of activity is better than none, and that there’s ways to get moving for nearly every mood. Personal trainer Jen Gottleib says in an article by US News and World Reports, “I don’t care what [exercise] you do, I just want you to move your body in ways that feel good.” She says that taking this laid-back approach to fitness helps clients get… [Read More]

Health Spotlight: How to access mental health services when money is tight

August 07, 2018

Mental health is a critical part of our overall health, and just like when we get the flu or break a bone, it’s important to seek professional treatment when we aren’t feeling well. It is estimated that over 56% of American adults suffering from mental illness aren’t getting the help that they need. One reason is that mental health services have yet to be as comprehensively covered by insurance as physical health services, and sometimes seeking help can be expensive. However, there are many options available to get help without going broke in the process. This article (click here) has… [Read More]
