Fighting Winter Aches with CBD

Fighting Winter Aches with CBD

CBD, Health and Lifestyle
The holidays are over, and the bills are left behind. But that's not the only struggle that comes with winter. As the weather turns colder, your joints may ache, and your muscles get stiff. It's not just age doing that; it's a biological response to the cold that we hate. It can be easy to let it all overwhelm you, sinking ever deeper into the slushy grey pits of unkempt snowfall (metaphorically speaking, hopefully, this isn't literal in your case). But we live in an age that's chock full of answers, and have we got one for you! So if you're just trying your best to keep it all together, then maybe it's time to indulge a little bit in some CBD. The Cards As They've Been Dealt It's getting…

What Universal Healthcare Could Mean for the Health Industry

What Universal Healthcare Could Mean for the Health Industry

Health and Lifestyle
What Is the Health Industry, Anyway? In a sense, it’s right on the tin: an Industry of Health. The health industry is an industry that runs hospitals, nursing homes, and other healthcare services for a profit. Much like housing, entertainment, and commercial industries, the health industry runs on the same motives and objectives — profit. Furthermore, they all exist within a market economy, answering the principles of supply and demand and so forth. Except here, instead of providing movies and music, houses and apartments, it’s providing healthcare. What is the one thing all industry seeks more than anything? Profit. It is the one thing it lives for — the perpetual growth of itself. Now, did you catch that? There’s one little word there that’s going to be very, very important…

Keeping Fit During the Fall/Winter Months

Keeping Fit During the Fall/Winter Months

Health and Lifestyle
It seems like we’ve just been released from our homes during the pandemic lockdown. Now, we are approaching fall and winter, and many will be retreating back into their homes until spring arrives. But even though we are once again seeking the protection of our abodes, it doesn’t mean we should let our fitness go fallow. In fact, it’s more important than ever to maintain ourselves! And keeping ourselves fit is not just for the physical benefits, which are more or less obvious, but for the mental positives, too. There’s nothing that makes depression stronger than being trapped in a sedentary mode for extended periods of time. So, what exactly needs doing? How do our routines change from what they were before, and how do we maintain the level of…

How Climate Change Will Affect the Winter

How Climate Change Will Affect the Winter

Health and Lifestyle
Climate change remains an issue that is not completely understood by the majority of the population. Here, we’re hoping to help you understand the overall effect of climate change a little better and how that change could affect the winter season in the near future. All About Averages The first thing that needs to be understood before we continue is that the planetary atmosphere, its relation to climate, climate’s relation to weather, and all the other auxiliary causes and effects tied to this brambled tree are complicated. Meaning, this isn’t a 1 to 1 scenario. For example, just because climate change is happening doesn’t mean each and every consecutive day, month, year, etc., will get warmer and warmer. If that were the case, maybe we’d all be a little more…

Health and Lifestyle
Aaahhhh. Do you smell that? Can you taste that? Are you conjuring the succulents in your mind already? The time has come for some savory nostalgia once again. The ebb and flow of time is relentless and unending, but sometimes it leaves a few things above the waters for us to revisit and rekindle. Of course, this is a fancy way of saying that sometimes candy companies survive their brutally competitive markets and are still making candy. You might know of a few of them already, but others may surprise you. And who knows, maybe you're looking for a trip to candy's past? With that in mind, here are a few candies that got their start in the ‘80s and ‘90s that are still on store shelves (or internet purchasable).…

It’s the End of Earworm Season: How COVID Affected This Year’s Summer Songs

Health and Lifestyle, Pointers
Summer is almost over. We know, we know, it hardly felt like it started. But, before the pandemic, songs of summer were a marker of sorts, a stamp on the calendar that reminded people it was finally time to kick back and relax. Summer songs were a herald of the coming season of sun, fun, and plenty of time spent outdoors on a picnic blanket or at an outdoor music festival. But, it's been more than a year now since this whole thing started, and we've all been cooped up in our houses for the whole seemingly interminable journey. So we didn't get our usual amount of summer fun, beach parties, or barbecues. But we still had Spotify, Pandora, and other music services. And we still had those summer songs…
