Trend Watch – Forest Bathing

Can exposure to parks and greenery reduce stress and strengthen Immunity?
 
"Shinrin-yoku" or Forest Bathing” has become an increasingly popular way for people in Japan to relax and get healthy.  Shrnrin-yoko is basically a relaxed stroll through the forest and it is thought of as natural aromatherapy. 
 

Beware of Gym Germs!

What's lurking in your gym?
 
It's official - experts have issued warnings about what might be lurking in your "health club." The main culprits? Bacteria, viruses, fungi and in some cases, the "Super Bug" MRSA.

Exercise and Altitude

No matter what your fitness level, significant changes in altitude pose challenges for your body, because of the reduced oxygen in the air.  Traveling above 5,000-6,000 feet can have immediate effects on our bodies.  If you take your training to an altitude that you are not used to -for example, if you routinely exercise at sea level and travel to an elevation of 8,000 feet—you’ll need to decrease the intensity of your sessions to allow your body to adapt.
