Why You Might Want To Extend ‘Dry January’ To Every Month
After booze-soaked holidays and the desire to get back in shape and healthier at the top of a new year, many may feel inspired to temporarily go alcohol-free or at least significantly cut back. However, come February, they often find themselves back to their old drinking habits (a nightly glass of wine, a few cocktails at their weekly ‘Happy Hour,’ binge drinking on the weekends).
Give Your Hair Some Much Needed TLC With Red Light Therapy
Red light therapy is popular for treating skin issues such as wrinkles, acne, scars, sun damage and more. The light is absorbed by the skin and can stimulate the production of collagen, elastin and other molecules that are important for healthy skin. So it makes sense that red light therapy would have a positive influence on hair growth and health, especially when you look at it from the perspective that hair grows from your scalp which is skin.

Rutabagas Are Healthy, But You May Want to Eat In Moderation (Along With Other Root Veggies)
Knowing how to eat is just as (if not more) important as knowing what to eat. I think it’s pretty much common knowledge that whole, unprocessed foods, such as fruits and vegetables, are far more healthier than nutrient-void, processed foods.

6 Ways I Improved My Joint Health and Became Pain Free
After 30 years of playing golf, I developed some pain in my left shoulder. To be honest, the pain was pretty annoying with a burning sensation.

But after having an MRI, I discovered I had mild osteoarthritis (often called “wear-and-tear”), mild tendinosis (makes sense because one of the symptoms is burning) and mild bursitis.

You Might Want To Consider Being a ‘Locavore.’
I try my best to provide healthy, plant-forward dinners for my husband and 15-month-old son as much as possible. It’s not always easy, and I know many people can relate to this whether they are cooking just for themselves or their families.
