If You're Struggling to Do Push-Ups, You Need to Make This Simple Tweak to Your Hand Position
Push-ups are definitely one of those love-hate exercises, but the feeling of mastering a push-up is amazing; even if your arms are trembling during and after every rep and you know the soreness will linger for days. I like push-ups because you can do them anywhere. They're also an exercise that never seems to get easier even as you get stronger. And because push-ups are a staple in any fitness routine, you've got to make sure you're performing them correctly. Your neck should always be in a neutral position, meaning it isn't tucked into your chest or extended up. You'll also want to keep yo...

Why You Should Consider Starting a Workplace Fitness Weight Loss Competition (and How to Do It)
Helping your workers with weight loss and fitness can help boost productivity and happiness on the job. Between sitting at a desk, commuting to work, and perusing our mobile devices, entrepreneurs can be quite sedentary. This lack of movement contributes to obesity and other health issues, both mental and physical, that so many of us experience. Obesity also impacts both profits and productivity. A 2017 review of 50 studies on the subject in the medical journal BMJ Open revealed "substantial costs due to lost productivity among workers with obesity." It's no wonder companies want to help em...

I’m an NHS nurse. This is how I’m convincing Americans to fight for free healthcare
As a British nurse, over the last year I have built links with American nurses who are leading the fight to establish Medicare For All in the USA. As we have shared experiences about the profession we love, I have been shocked by the horror stories from my US counterparts.

A recent Britain Thinks poll showed that 83% of people were sick of hearing about Brexit, while 64% believed it was damaging their mental health. To check if this was the case, we caught up with Sharon Leclercq-Spooner, a full-time, anti-Brexit activist based in Brussels. The trade expert reckons Brexit has taken a toll on her mentally and physically. She moderated an anti-Brexit event on an EU council day, and the stress overcame her. "It turns out I've got shingles and that's not good," she said. "That's probably just doing too much worrying. I call it Brexititis because it came on the da...
