I exercise because it makes me feel amazing, and I encourage the folks I work with to move however they can and want to - stretching, walking, lifting heavy things or lifting light things repeatedly -- it really doesn't matter, just get moving! A recent study showed that exercise may have the power to make positive changes in the gut by increasing butyrate – a short-chain fatty acid that promotes healthy cells in the gut, reduces inflammation and generates energy. That's amazing!

“There’s only one ideal exercise for everyone on the planet,” says Victoria Albina, “and that is the exercise that makes that person feel good in their body.” For you, that could be walking, for others Crossfit, she says. “And for some, that’s holding a plank for 10 seconds a day and building up to a minute. But the point is to get moving.”

Spent the day getting rid of #clutter. When my space is minimalist and clean, it creates space for me to clean out the clutter in my mind, and to focus on what matters. But all in it's balance... I love good shoes! #lifecoaching #victoriaalbinahealth #getridofit

Living your healthiest low-toxin life isn't just about what you eat and drink, it's about all the products you put on and in your body. Thanks @Sustain for creating organic and natural condoms, tampons, pads, lube and more to help us care for our bodies and the earth, while continuing to open up the conversation about women's pleasure.

Concrete action of the day. Stand with those who understand and respect your struggle. Know that you're not alone. Know that we are more powerful together. #RadicalSelfCare #Care2Resist

We're hearing a lot about how blue screens are disturbing our circadian rhythms and are effecting our health in so many ways. Here are some great reasons to take the TV out of your kids' room.

"Children who have a television or video games in their bedroom spend less time reading and sleeping, research suggests. Consequences include poor performance at school, greater risk of obesity, and even video game addiction.

Further, children with bedroom media watched programs and played video games that were more violent, which increased levels of physical aggression. It stands to reason that most parents are not fully aware of what is happening behind closed doors, says Douglas Gentile, professor of psychology at Iowa State University and lead author of the study in Developmental Psychology."
