Health starts here: The Natural Alternative Nutrition Center will get you feeling great

 
To ‘be healthy’ is more than being a specific weight. It’s more than just staving off disease or illness. Healthy is waking up before the morning alarm clock rings and making it through a full work-day, without an afternoon coffee or energy drink. Being healthy is about feeling healthy all day, everyday; to have the energy to do the activities you enjoy.

Our destination on our sea kayaking tour was El Capitan Beach where we would disembark, take our camping gear out of the kayak’s cargo hold, and spend the night at the campground. So far we had covered about six miles and the paddling was easy and uneventful. Suddenly something broke through the surface of the water on either side of our little band of kayakers. “Dolphins,” somebody cried. Sure enough a pod of Pacific dolphins were joining us on our journey.

Professionals help avid adventure-seeker balance a DIY lifestyle

My mom and dad raised a do-it-yourselfer. Car needs a headlight? Figure it out. Sink leaking? No problem. But what happens when your football-playing father teaches you to just suck it up when your body falls apart and that doesn’t work for you?

How to be happy this summer and achieve your goals

In the beginning of July, we celebrated our country’s independence. Usually a fun time, one spent outdoors with friends and family, playing games and enjoying good food. But now that the celebration is over, here’s something else to think about...
