Your doctor or physical therapist can recommend exercises for you, which might include range-of-motion exercises, strengthening exercises, aerobic exercise, and other activities. These exercises help you build strong muscles that help support and protect your joints. Examples of low-impact aerobic exercises that are easier on your joints include walking, bicycling, swimming, and using an elliptical machine. One option is to work through your joint flares by doing only range-of-motion exercises, just to keep your body moving, or exercising in water to cushion your joints.
Complex carbs, which are three or more simple sugars bonded together, have more complex molecular structures. These refined carbs, like white rice and white flour, tend to act more like simple carbs in your body (more on that below). Your body breaks carbs down into the simple sugar glucose, your body’s main energy source that you either burn during physical activity or store in muscles or fat for later use. This glucose in your blood, commonly known as blood sugar, then travels throughout your body through circulation to supply energy to your tissues.
Ally Love on the New Adidas x Peloton Collection, Embracing Fake Plants, and the Radical Power of CommunityThis week, Adidas and Peloton released a new 90s-inspired activewear collection, and Ally Love, a longtime ambassador for both brands, could not be more excited. The collection, which includes bright oranges and pinks as well as sleek black pieces, is “an ode” to that particular decade that has become a Peloton favorite, Love tells SELF. I know now who I am a little bit more and I know how to show up for my communities, whether it is the fans of the Brooklyn Nets or our members of Love Squad or Peloton. You don’t have to write it down in your journal, it’s just taking the time to acknowledge verbally or internally, Thank you, chair for holding me, thank you, computer for not giving up on me today, thank you to your partner for just holding space.
I started doing some advocacy work pretty early on in my career, but by the time I became a mom and then had a postpartum complication with my daughter's birth, it just became really clear that [maternal health care] is something that not only is needed, but I feel really passionate about. Though her doctors were able to manage her condition, the shaking experience was enough to encourage Turlington Burns to go back to school, where she received a master’s degree in public health from Columbia University. Turlington Burns has spent the pandemic between her family’s home in Long Island and their home in New York City, where she focuses mostly on her advocacy work and spending time with her teenage children. I feel like having a pet forces you to go outside and forces you to slow down; it forces you to take breaks during the day.
