    (CNN)Our work-life balance has, to borrow a term we all learned in the 2020 Olympics, been feeling "the twisties" during the pandemic. So many of us had to adapt to working from home, adjustments and accommodations, mass layoffs, career pivots and rehiring. Even if you managed to keep your job, it likely changed in some significant way. And change doesn't always mean for the better. Even before Covid-19, more than half of Americans found their job unsatisfactory, according to an annual survey by the Conference Board research group. The nation had been hovering around the halfway mark of job dissatisfaction since at least 2000. That statistic means half the people you work with every day are living a work life that Henry David Thoreau would have described as one of "quiet desperation."

    The 5 apps that will pay you to get fit If you are one of those who tells you to do sports, it is time for you to know that there are applications that want to give you money for having a healthy lifestyle With few exceptions, most people have a hard time exercising in the summer. Heat is the main enemy, but plans with friends and vacations do not make it easy to overcome laziness either. Added to this are bad habits, unhealthy food, and lack of free time for the rest of the year. All this has caused people to walk much less and of course, hardly practice any sports. But this year we have a little easier to start breaking these bad habits, because technology has joined forces with sport to put a definitive end to sedentary lifestyles. We are talking about applications that not only encourage you to practice physical activity daily, but also financially reward you for doing it. Could you imagine that a squat or pillar class could be rewarded with money? If your...
    Pets are big parts of our lives, and a growing number of people consider their pets to be family. According to the 2017-2018 American Pet Products Survey, 68 percent of households in the U.S. have pets, with 60.2 million having dogs, and 47.1 million having cats. With our pets being such a large part of our lives, we often place them into situations that could potentially make them uncomfortable. At times it’s something simple like a car ride or being in a new environment, but the way we interact with our pets can also cause them unnecessary stress. According to the ASPCA’s tips for reading canine body language, symptoms of stress can include a wide-eyed looked referred to as “whale eye,” pulled back lips or licking their lips, ear movement, a lowered tail, rapid panting, stiff body posture, or turning their head away. Nervous or stressed pets might also pace, suffer from digestive upset, or refuse to eat or drink. Each pet is different, so it’s important for us to recognize these signals, as well as common situations that can...
    Bill Russell: Career retrospective House slippers to keep you cozy this winter Here are 14 easy steps that could get you out of debt © Depositphotos Back view of jumping girl on pier For many Americans,  living a life without financial stress seems somewhat impossible. The messaging on the internet, social media, news, and even within homes promotes a culture of buying now and paying later.  The consumer system is set up so that most purchases depend on applicant creditworthiness and a focus on being in debt responsibly. A high credit score will get you lower interest rates on major purchases, and a low credit score is a cause for worry because of higher interest rates. Many people also struggle to build their credit, and they must be careful about which personal finance decisions impact credit scores.  The average American builds credit by opening a credit card account, acquiring student loan debt, or making car payments. Many people also live paycheck to paycheck, making it difficult to avoid applying for loans if they urgently need money.  The availability of easy to obtain high-interest credit...
    (CNN) — Want to live a longer, healthier life? One way is to keep your blood pressure at optimal levels as you age — preferably below 120 systolic (the top number) and 80 diastolic (the lower number). That’s especially important during the pandemic, because having high blood pressure is one of the possible risk factors for developing a more severe case of Covid-19, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. You may be able to control your blood pressure, a new study finds, by improving your score on a metric of seven heart-healthy behaviors — doing just one appears to cut hypertension risk by 6% as you age. “High blood pressure is among the most common conditions in the U.S., and it contributes to the greatest burden of disability and largest reduction in healthy life expectancy among any disease,” said Dr. Timothy B. Plante, the lead author of a new study published Wednesday in the Journal of the American Heart Association, in a statement. Plante is an assistant professor in the department of medicine at the Larner College of...

    Getty Images If you're like many Americans, the Covid-19 pandemic has prompted a financial reality check: You haven't saved enough. A recent Bankrate survey found that 55% of Americans have regrets over their emergency savings, or lack thereof. Experts agree that having an emergency fund can help you whether you face a job loss or other unexpected event. Yet you may not know how or where to start, particularly now that the Federal Reserve has kept interest rates near zero, which means you will make less interest on your money. These tips can help you get started.Make it a habit to pay yourself firstIf you do not make saving a habit, you likely won't be able to successfully build an emergency fund. The best way to make sure you get it done: Set up a direct deposit from your paycheck into a dedicated savings account, said Greg McBride, chief financial analyst at Bankrate. "That way, the savings happens even before you roll out of bed on payday morning," McBride said. If instead you wait to put the funds in the...
    WE’VE all been there, it’s time to put on your favourite pair of jeans and they feel a little tight around the waist or the thighs. While many people have revelled in exercise plans during the coronavirus lockdown, others may have over indulged. 5Experts have revealed their top tips to shed the pounds Credit: Getty - Contributor Researchers from the University of Oxford have now set out a foolproof plan for you to shed the pounds. Professor Susan Jebb and Dr Kerstin Frie previously set out what makes dieters lose their mojo and go back to sneaking cakes and sweet treats. After building on results from the first trial, they found that people who weighed themselves each day were more likely to stick to their diets and therefore were more likely to obtain their goals. Now writing in the British Journal of Health Psychology they outline the results of a new “Prevail” programme. The trial gathered data from 100 participants and found that the key to losing weight was “to remain in control”. The researchers highlighted seven basic steps to...
    Walking meditation can be an alternative for those who don't like to meditate while sitting still.  During walking meditation, you'll focus on the sensations in your feet, as opposed to focusing on your breathing during many other types of meditation.  The benefits of walking meditation include better balance, improved mental health, and lower risk of chronic illness.  This article was reviewed by Erin Woo, MEd, assistant director of mindfulness in education at the Mindfulness Center at Brown University.  This story is part of Insider's guide on How to Meditate.  When you think of meditation, you likely think of a person sitting cross-legged, hands on knees, eyes closed, breathing slowly, and intentionally. That's not an inaccurate portrait. Meditation is often referred to as sitting meditation. But that style may not be right for everyone.  Walking meditation is another option. In some mindfulness practices, you might focus on your breath, but in walking meditation, you focus on the sensations in your feet.  Here's what you should know about the health benefits of walking meditation and how to practice it.  Benefits of walking meditation Some...
    An expert has revealed the five simple steps to detoxing your bedroom - and how promoting good 'sleep hygiene' will mean you get better quality rest and relaxation in your space. Genevieve Rosen-Billen is the brains behind the linen bedding company Bed Threads, and she told FEMAIL that while you might not realise it, there are myriad different things preventing us from getting good rest in our bedroom - and almost all of them relate to our environment. 'There's a good chance you're not meeting the standards of good "sleep hygiene",' Genevieve told Daily Mail Australia. 'You might be doing everything right with your bedtime routine, but your environment is all wrong - so you'll never get those necessary eight hours.'

    Ready to see grandma face-to-face? After three months of lockdowns intended to protect elderly and vulnerable populations from COVID-19, state health officials recently released guidelines for both outdoor and “open window” visits at nursing homes and other long-term care facilities. It’s a change that some elder care advocates call overdue, and one of several steps that many seniors and their families had asked the Minnesota Department of Health to consider. More are coming. “Yes, allowing structured visits needs to be done,” said Eilon Caspi, a consultant on dementia behavior and an adjunct faculty member at the University of Minnesota School of Nursing. “It probably should have been done weeks ago. Why not do it outdoors, if we know the outdoors can be safer than indoors, with masks on?” Caspi added: “I’m not saying we should have family members just walk in. That would be reckless. (But) we have reports of residents dying of social isolation on death certificates, as a secondary cause of death.” Still, others who speak out for seniors say alongside ramped-up testing, extreme precautions — even bans...
    After two weeks of protests, elected officials and community leaders are mulling solutions to the systemic racial injustices and issues of police brutality exposed by the death of George Floyd. CBS News spoke with black faith leaders about what people are demanding, what's different about this wave of demonstrations, and how to begin tackling the ongoing issues of racial inequity. The final moments of Floyd's life, when a fired Minneapolis police officer kneeled on his neck for nearly nine minutes, were gruesome. For some, it was another painful reminder of the long, sad history of policing for black people in America. "…[Policing in America was] designed to control the movements of black people and therefore it always treated black people differently," said Reverend Nelson Rivers, the pastor of Charity Missionary Baptist Church in North Charleston. "There's never been a time really, that the police have ever treated black people like their lives matter." Looters and vandals have at times distracted from what protesters want: a complete overhaul of the criminal justice system and policing. But United Church of Christ Associate General Minister...
    College football is scheduled to kick off in less than three months and there are plenty of reasons to be hopeful that games will be played Labor Day weekend. Universities across the country are taking the first cautious, detailed steps toward playing football in a pandemic, attempting to build COVID-19-free bubbles around their teams as players begin voluntary workouts. “I think the start of the race has a lot to do with how you finish it,” Baylor athletic director Mack Rhoades said. Thousands of athletes will be tested for COVID-19, though not all. Masks will need to be worn — most of the time. Some schools will have players pumping iron this week. Others are waiting a few more weeks. “There’s an element of this that’s kind of like building an airplane as you fly it in that we’re learning so much more really every week,” Notre Dame football team Dr. Matt Leiszler said. “But it’s a moving target at times.” For months, health officials including the NCAA’s chief medical officer have said widespread and efficient...
    “No justice, no peace!” This is the cry ringing through the Twin Cities as buildings are burning and businesses are boarded to protect against riots filling our streets. I drove through my hometown, Minneapolis, over the weekend, and what I saw resembled more the war-torn places I’ve been in overseas than the white-collar city I know. I couldn’t help but think of Isaiah 59:15, “The Lord saw it, and it displeased him that there was no justice.” ALVEDA KING: AS RIOTS SPREAD ACROSS US, HEED WORDS OF MY UNCLE MARTIN LUTHER KING TO END VIOLENCE AND RACISM George Floyd’s death at the hands of police officers last week has triggered an avalanche of anger that has spilled over the streets of not only our Twin Cities but also New York, Los Angeles, Houston, Atlanta and many other cities across America. The arrest of Derek Chauvin, the officer who pinned Floyd to the ground with his knee, seems to have not quelled the anger many Americans are feeling. As Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said on March 14, 1968: “A riot is the language of the unheard” — and the unheard will be silent no longer.More from OpinionKay Coles James: George Floyd's senseless killing – end racism that afflicts...
