5 Health and Wellness Influencers To Follow This Fall

5 Health and Wellness Influencers To Follow This Fall

Earlier this year, we did a post on wellness influencers who inspired and motivated us to create and commit to our new year health resolutions; we found that it reminded us of our own personal goals during our routine IG feed scroll. Whether it was to reduce meat consumption or to try to incorporate more physical activity, these influencers lead by example and gave us a plethora of fresh ideas to incorporate or change up our routines.  As the holiday seasons approach us, our general wellness can become secondary; thus, we rounded up another 5 health and wellness influencers to follow as we go into the chillier months.

Guest Post: Being Grateful and Finding Happiness While Walking The Camino

We are a mother-daughter team on a 500 mile walking quest to learn more about ourselves and others through gratefulness. This past summer, we headed to Spain to walk the El Camino de Santiago pilgrimage with a plan to interview someone each day to find out what they were grateful for and to practice daily gratitude ourselves. The El Camino pilgrimage is traditionally a religious pilgrimage with pilgrims walking from all across Europe to visit the sacred burial site of St. James.

5 Reasons to Love the Kore Wobble Stool

5 Reasons to Love the Kore Wobble Stool

Movement and kids, the two are almost always mutually exclusive. Kids thrive on exploring and getting all their frustrations out through movement, that’s why it’s so important to have equipment both in and out of the classroom that allows them to do so. Traditional classrooms simply don’t provide a conducive environment for kids to move and as a result we often see kids act out in class and cause huge classroom disruptions.

Learning on the Move | Kinaesthetic Classroom

Integrating movement in learning will become the top priority in education.  If we combine what we know about learning with what we know about fitness, there is a natural alignment. The optimal amount of information each individual can have modeled, learn, practice, and eventually master, will increase if the student is maintaining a healthy functioning brain. Teachers need to know the techniques, materials, equipment, and furniture that can help facilitate the integration of movement into the learning process.
