In the past decade, Apartment living has become a lifestyle of freedom and style. The sleek buildings with elevators taking you to rooftop pools caters to a luxurious lifestyle on a budget. Little did we know that these new luxurious urban lifestyles may be costing us a lot more. As crazy as it sounds, there are a lot of reasons why living in an apartment can help you pack on weight if you’re not careful.
Deadlines, meetings, improper posture (*ahem* slouching and hunching) sitting for long hours, typing, writing, texting, driving… all of these lead to one thing: stress. Whether it is physical or emotional, by the end of the day most of us are feeling stress somewhere in our bodies. And you don’t have to tell us, we know how difficult it can be to carve out time for a full yoga practice (however, it’s highly recommended). These poses are a great place to start if you’re restricted on time or simply want to hit the “reset” button during your workday.
I think we can all agree that food is at the center of the universe when we announce our commitment or recommitment to our health. Our options for fitness and physical activity are wide-ranging with options for gym memberships, on-site personal training and group fitness classes with Anywhere Fitness. For some, the larger battle comes at mealtimes without a plan to eat nutritiously dense food. No plan and fear of the kitchen may have you permanently stuck.
