10 Exercises to Ground Yourself in the Present

Our lives are busier than ever. With technology everywhere we go, it's easy to be constantly multitasking—reading documents on your tablet while you wait to pick up the kids from carpool, or sending emails from your smartphone while you jog on the treadmill.

Stop Acting Your Age

Occasional fashion disasters notwithstanding, we take pride in our originality. Nonetheless, we find that an old adage still rings true once in a while, and “you’re only as old as you think you are” is a phrase we find ourselves throwing around on a daily basis. Our bodies and minds are on a feedback loop—if you give in to feeling old then your body is quickly going to follow suit. But if you adopt the “50 is the new 40” (even better, 30!) way of thinking, then you’re likely to find your physique complying.

Mother's Day Our Way

We were just talking this morning about how, when our kids were really young, all we secretly wanted for Mother’s Day was to get a break from them. Instead, we got a lot of beautiful family time and another screaming headache for which we had to grin and look grateful.

Menopause 101: Your Guide to Owning Your Post-Menopausal Sex Life

 Embrace Your Changing Body

When you hit menopause, it can seem like you're living in a stranger's body. New sensations, new challenges, new feelings and new realities can take hold. Because of this, many women view menopause as a frightening experience.

When messages like this are so pervasive in popular culture and media, it's not surprising that many women who are nearing or experiencing menopause feel bad about their bodies and their relationships.

Exercise for Better Sex: Why It Works

Exercise, Endorphins and Excitement

Have you lost that lovin’ feeling?

As we age, give birth and enter menopause, our hormone levels can shift, which can lower our sex drive. Up to three-quarters of women between the ages of 45 and 58—still young by today’s standards—note a drop in their libido because of shifts in estrogen and testosterone levels. Reduced estrogen also causes fewer endorphins (the “happy hormones”) to be released in our bodies.
