The universe is talking to you. Are you listening? We are. Not sure what we mean? For example, when buying my first house, it seemed like every TV show I watched had an episode with characters buying, selling, house-hunting, or moving. When training for a race, suddenly people I hardly knew — and who I definitely didn’t know were runners — started coming out of the woodwork to share their experiences. It’s a lot like the whole Facebook ads thing, where you just sooooort of think about how you could stand to buy a new bra and — BAM —…

We did an Insta story a few weeks ago on productivity. But it wasn’t the type of advice that you normally read. You know, the kind where you learn a new way to shave 30 seconds off some boring or mundane part of your day. Actually, it was kind of the opposite of that. It was more about not just slowing down, but allowing — and giving yourself permission to feel really accomplished for just being. See, we tend to put so much pressure on ourselves to GET STUFF DONE. We basically live and die by our to-do lists. And,…

When was the last time worrying about something actually improved a situation? If I had to take a guess, in my case, it was sometime around … oh, the 12th of NEVER. via GIPHY And believe me when I say it’s had puh-len-TY of opportunities to step up to the plate. I spent my teens and much of my 20s as a champion worrier, spending a pretty significant amount of time being concerned about things that might happen to me, to my loved ones, or to the world, as well as things that had already happened and, to everyone who…

For many people — myself included — writing is hugely therapeutic. Not all writing, of course — some of those term papers I wrote in college were far more anxiety-inducing than relieving, and it’s not like every email I send takes a weight off my shoulders. But there’s a reason why we love journaling so much. Science has proven that it’s got all kinds of benefits. We at FBG aren’t the only ones who are preaching about the power of writing, of course. Recently, we were introduced to JamBios, an online journaling website designed to help people who’ve gone through…

There was a period of time — not so long ago — when the most requested poses in my yoga classes were hip openers. But that is definitely changing. So many people are now are experiencing the effects of long hours spent in front of computers and mobile devices — all that tech is rapidly becoming a (literal) pain in the neck … and shoulders … and upper back.
