Throughout our lives what we carry, wear, and how our living and working spaces are organized all have an influence on us and how we feel. Not just in terms of how they make us feel from owning them, like how a nice shirt or dress can make us happy, but also how they can change our bodies and potentially how they may negatively affect us.
Below are three Tips & Tricks videos where we discuss the things we carry with us, the things we wear, and our environment - all in hopes to get you thinking about these things and how you can make small changes that may have a big and positive impact in your life.

In Part 1 of our Tips and Tricks video we discuss the things we wear or carry around with us and how do they influence our bodies and how we move.
Try putting your purse on a scale and notice how heavy it is. Notice what shoulder you carry it on, does that shoulder feel different from your other shoulder? Are there things that you can get rid out of it so its not sooo heavy? Where do you carry your wallet? Do the things in your pockets affect how you sit?

LOVE or HATE your gadgets?
Lets face it, tech gadgets are here to stay, just like TV's were when they arrived in the late 70's. At that time the worry was how much time we spent watching them.
With todays devices, the same problems exists AND we have more devices to contend with. As well these gadgets are being sold to "improve" our lives. Have you had to divorce some of your devices or remove APPS so you could improve your Health? This video asks you to think of how these devices affect your life and what changes you can make to use your gadgets better.
Is there more that I can do?
