I'm a Yoga Instructor, and These 5 Stretches Relieved My Plantar Fasciitis Pain From Running

Image
I dealt with the pain of plantar fasciitis back in the spring of 2019 when the warmer weather inspired me to start running more. The physical therapist I saw recommended some exercises to help heal, but to be honest, they didn't work. The only thing that helped was taking a break from any type of running or jumping in my CrossFit classes.Fast forward to spring 2020 and when my CrossFit gym had to close because of the pandemic, the warmer weather once again inspired me to run outside - it was essential for my mental health. I knew I had to take it slow in order to prevent my plantar fasciitis from flaring up, but unfortunately after that first week, I was back in pain, and even walking from the bed to the bathroom was excruciating.As a yoga instructor, I knew thoroughly and consistently (that was the key!) stretching out my feet and legs would help relieve the pain, so I made a point to take a few minutes to stretch after every run. Six months later, I've been running five to s…

If You Have No Choice but to Wear a Disposable Mask Again, Take These Doctors' Advice

Image
With masks now being a part of everyday life, it's almost inevitable that you'll find yourself running short on them at some point. So, if you really need to go somewhere, and all you have is a disposable mask you've already worn, can you wear it again?"Wearing a disposable mask that you have already previously worn is better than wearing no mask at all, but you should do your best to change your disposable face mask every day," William A. Haseltine, PhD, author of A Family Guide to COVID and A COVID Back to School Guide and chair of the US-China Health Summit, told POPSUGAR. Dr. Haseltine noted that disposable masks can get very dirty from just one use and they can't be properly cleaned like a fabric face mask.Steven Quay, MD, PhD, a physician and scientist, agreed, explaining that "while the best practice is a new mask every time, a used mask is a 'good' option compared to going without one." While Dr. Quay doesn't recommend wearing a …

I Got Drunk Off This "Fit Wine," and It Didn't Ruin My Workout the Next Day

Image
I don't drink nearly as often as I used to, but I still enjoy getting a decent buzz on occasion. I don't love how that buzz disrupts my habits the next day, though. Even the slightest hangover usually results in me skipping my workout and eating all the junk food I can get my hands on.These days, my drink of choice is mostly red wine. I love enjoying a nice glass (or two) of red wine with dinner, friends, or while hanging out with my parents. The problem is the sugar in the wine. While it can certainly add to the flavor, it can also wreak havoc on how I feel the next day.That's why I was very excited to learn about FitVine Wine, a low-sugar, keto-friendly wine that claims to fit an active, healthy lifestyle. I decided to give it a try and see if this wine could solve my dilemma.The company makes a variety of wines, both red and white. I opted for the FitVine Wine Cabernet Sauvignon ($16). I'm not going to say I drank the entire bottle, but I'm also not going to say…
