CLEAN HEALTH: Join a Yoga Class!

Yoga is the most important exercise of my daily routine. 

Being surrounded by beautiful women in spandex should be reason enough for you to join a class, but if you need more #motivation, consider this: #Yoga eases stress, lowers blood pressure, slows heart rates, and increases flexibility. And there's nothing mystical about it.

Loosening your muscles will make them more adaptable, so you may be less likely to injure yourself playing #sports. Sure, some of the poses may look ridiculous, but that's for a reason you'll learn quickly enough. Yoga can reach and work muscles that are ignored during routine sports and daily life. My favorite maneuver is the sun salutation

CLEAN EARTH: Computers are..Environmentally Damaging!

Computers are, on a weight for weight basis more environmentally damaging to produce the cares. 

Research by the UN University in Tokyo indicates manufacturing of a standard desktop computer 17-inch CRT monitor requires a total of two tons of materials, including at least 528 pounds of fossil fuels, 48 pounds of chemicals, and nearly 400 gallons of water. A good place to start when choosing machines is the Green Electronic Council’s Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool, which rates computer companies on their material use and end -of-life-take-back policies. Minimize the need to replace computers so often by choosing models whose life can be extended through upgrades and repair.

CLEAN HEALTH: Pop a Probiotic!

To keep yeast infections at bay, head for the vitamin aisle.

Supplementing with "good" bacteria (for example, #Lactobacillus or #Bifidobacterium) may help restore the balance the of bacteria living in the female genital tract and inhibit the growth of yeast in women with recurrent infections. Foods such as naturally fermented sauerkraut, kimchi, and kefir, as well as yogurt with active cultures, also contain these bacteria.

CLEAN EARTH: What’s true of pens and paper vs office consumables

What’s true of pens and paper is true of other office consumables, with a wide variety of envelopes, sticky notes, ring binders, notebooks, and other general supplies made from recycled and eco-friendlier materials now available. 

Use a desk caddy to save envelopes, rubber bands, and paper clips for reuse, and ask your office manager to establish an exchange spot for other items such as bubble wrap and padded envelopes. Request designs that support reuse, such as envelopes that have resealable flaps and space for multiple addresses, or adhesive-tape holders that are refillable rather than disposable.
