Getting exercise during quarantine is hard for everyone, but it may be the most detrimental to the 100 million American adults who struggle with chronic pain. Exercise is a common treatment to minimize chronic pain. While it’s not a replacement for more traditional medicine, it can increase mobility, decrease inflammation, and minimize your overall pain.

Exercise also helps improve sleep patterns, which are often disrupted by medications commonly used to treat chronic pain. People who exercise consistently usually sleep longer and deeper than those who don’t exercise.

Remember that it’s important to talk to a doctor before starting a new excise regimen. Depending on where your chronic pain bothers you, some exercises may be too difficult and will worsen your pain. Always move at your own pace, and listen to your body! Some days will be harder than others, but don’t force your body to something that will hurt you.

Keeping your own body and limitations in mind, here is some health advice on four different types of exercise that you might want to try that can help minimize chronic pain:

Thanksgiving is a time when we spend time with our family eating turkey and ham with all the fixings. This holiday is notorious for excessive weight gain, cooler temperatures, and, of course, football. Many NFL teams play on this holiday because of the gain of viewership, since most people have the day off from work. Rival teams play to be crowned the winner while die-hard fans are screaming at their screens with excitement, anger, or a little bit of both. The first ever championship game on Turkey Day was between Yale University and Princeton in 1876, though college football is now held the day after on Black Friday. Spending time with your family watching football can create many memories, but getting out here and playing football with your family can determine whose house dinner will be at for next year!

It’s time to throw around the pigskin this Thanksgiving! What are some ways this fitness trend can provide health benefits?

As sure as Taylor Swift‘s albums win Grammys, health trends come and go. This time an all the rage celebrity diet might be reasonable enough to stay: intuitive eating. Models like Steph Claire Smith and Gemma Atkinson have embraced a balance, mindful way of consuming food. Rather than counting calories or suffering through another juice cleanse they trust their guts. The premise of intuitive eating is resetting your mind’s ideas around food. Your body dictates when you’re hungry, full, and satisfied. It’s nature’s way of letting us know what and when to eat.

The latest health trend indulges your food instincts, but what are the benefits to intuitive eating?

By Mara Miller

A recent health trend has been on the rise in 2019 in the form of tampon alternatives. You don’t need to limit yourself to only tampons. Tampons can hurt, depending on the brand, and they are packed with chemicals like rayon and bleached wood fibers that shouldn’t be anywhere near our bodies. You can find 100% cotton tampons but they won’t help you with the sustainability aspect of searching for tampon alternatives if that’s why you want something different for your monthly flow. Let’s forget about sleeping with a tampon in—that’s a big no-no because the average person gets 7 to 9 hours of sleep, and therefore going way past the recommended time it’s safe to leave a tampon in. You should use a pad instead. Pads aren’t any better either—it can feel like you’re walking around with a stinky diaper all day. Exploring tampon alternatives can not only help you toward sustainability but can also help ease the cost and discomfort of having your period. You’re also reducing the risk of potential illness with our health tips.

Okay, Ladies—let’s talk periods. Check out this new health trend for tampon alternatives!
