Yoga 101: How to Fix Your Chaturanga Pose via DailyBurn because I know that my form is not always the greatest for this pose, and I’m sure I’m not alone.

Ahhh, Chaturanga Dandasana — the yoga pose that yogis love to hate. There’s no denying the physical and mental challenge of hovering inches above your mat in a low plank position without losing your cool. While chaturanga can be a great way to tone your arms and core, your alignment needs to be spot on. But, chances are, you aren’t performing the pose as safely and soundly as you’d think.

How to Make Your Recipes Show Up in Pinterest’s New Recipe Search via Healthy Living Summit because I’m not a recipe blogger, but it’s useful information for those that are.

Healthy living food bloggers, rejoice!  Pinterest recently introduced a new recipe search, allowing you to filter your search results for different types of recipes, ranging from vegetarian to vegan to gluten-free to Paleo. Want your recipe pins to show up in recipe search? Then you’ll need to set up rich pins on your site.

SEO 101: How to Increase Organic Search Traffic for Blog Posts via Lean Green Blog because maybe it’s just be, but I find SEO kind of confusing and overwhelming, but it’s becoming a necessary tool for bloggers to gain visibility in search engines.

When you’re thinking of optimizing your posts, you should be thinking of how to help your target audience, not just how to rank better or reach more people in general. Start thinking like your audience. What do they want to know? What questions are they asking?

How to Analyze a Salary via Our Freaking Budget because it’s important, grown-up stuff.

As many of you full-timers know, a lot more goes into a salary than just the number on your pay stub. So before you become all slack jawed and googly-eyed over the salary number a company is promising, it’s important to consider the following:

I don’t believe in willpower via Carla Birnberg because if we’re being honest, I read this while I was eating a cookie and it made me reconsider my eating choices of the last couple weeks.

Change demands not willpower but the willingness to do what’s necessary to sustain the lifestyle change I love.

9 Books Every Runner Should Read via HuffPost Healthy Living because I love books and I love running, so obviously a match made in heaven.

The wisdom imparted through running doesn’t always come while pounding the pavement. Sometimes, it’s gleaned in moments of quiet contemplation and recovery curled on the couch with an ice pack, the occasional chocolate milk and a good book. The stories below might not give you the runner’s high you’re chasing, but they will give you something to consider throughout the miles ahead.

Top 10 Tips for a Healthy Social Life via Bananas for Balance because it can be a tough balance.

Keep perspective. This is something I have certainly struggled with when it’s so easy to have a one tracked mind towards your goal. Yes, you need to be dedicated to achieving your goal, but you also need to understand how it fits in to the bigger picture. I never want to sacrifice every other important area of my life.

Top 9 Podcasts for Running  via Run to the Finish because I love podcasts when I work out, and there were some new-to-me ones in here!

If you are tired of hearing the same 3 songs on the radio {though I am lovin’ a little Katy Perry right now}; I have tested out A LOT of podcasts over the last few years to find good ones…here are my favorites!

It has to stop via It’s Progression because what we’re feeding kids is an important topic.

We need to stop this.  We need to start making better choices for our families, for our children, for ourselves.  There will never be such a thing as a “perfect diet,” but we can sure make one better choice at a time and make an effort at having a healthier today and, therefore, a healthier tomorrow.

School rallies around 510-pound teen to help him get healthy via TODAY because I would love to see more schools and teens embracing healthier habits.

“From the beginning, I wanted this to help other kids just like me — overweight kids that need the help and the support,” he says. “I just like to help others. It is the right thing to do. … It is what my mom taught me.”
