Tidepools are isolated pockets of water found amongst intertidal zones along the coast. They can range from inches to several feet deep and house all sorts of sea life, such as marine animals during low tide. And while tidepools are generally safe for us to explore, it is vital to be cautious of the wildlife in our exploration.

The IDEA World Fitness Convention

Have you ever heard of workout splits? It’s not as intimidating as it sounds and adds more efficiency to your exercise routine! The idea is to strategically split up your weight training to target all major muscle groups in one week. Luckily, there are a variety of options for breaking up your workouts within a seven-day cycle. You can determine your splits depending on your goals, level of experience and the amount of time available.

The Effects of Aromatherapy and Meditation

Combating high levels of stress is a challenge many people face, yet it remains crucial to prioritize stress management for overall happiness and well-being.

Striking a balance is key and incorporating stress-relieving activities into our daily lives is essential.
