New Study Shows Walking or Biking to Work Increases Happiness

How do you get to work every day?

Do you lace up your walking shoes, clip on your helmet, or buckle up your seatbelt?

It might seem like a small choice, but this one part of your daily routine could be having a huge impact on your overall well-being.

A new study out of England shows that those who walk or bike to work experience mental benefits and have higher levels of happiness than those who drive. The ten-year study analyzed information from nearly 18,000 commuters, who were each assigned a well-being score based on their responses to questions about things like feelings of worthlessness or unhappiness, sleepless nights, or being unable to face problems.

Health Coach Tracey Miller Helps Women "Dig In" to Healthy Lives (And You Can Help!)

Tracey Miller had her first meeting with a Health Coach in 2005 when she was trying to get pregnant, and within two years, she had a baby—and had earned a Health Coach certification from Integrative Nutrition herself.

Before she completed the program, Tracey started offering cooking classes for moms. "The moms from the birthing class I attended were really eager to learn how to cook and make sure they were giving themselves and the baby nutrient-dense foods. They also wanted to be with other moms and learn from each other," she said.

The Time Management Secret that Lets You Accomplish Your Dreams

It seems like every day, there’s a new article or book on how to be more productive. Each one asserts that it has discovered some new secret, some breakthrough or technique that will allow us to accomplish every single thing we want to accomplish in the limited time we have. Guess what?

That’s impossible.

However, it is possible to accomplish our top priorities, the big things that give our lives richness and meaning, but only if we use our time wisely.

The method that Integrative Nutrition founder Joshua Rosenthal uses to accomplish this is called “Big Rocks,” and it’s a time management strategy that works regardless of who you are or what you hope to achieve. It’s also incredibly simple.

Integrative Nutrition Reviews: Discover Your Nutritional Style by Holli Thompson

The real key to discover your path to ultimate health is learning how to select and eat foods that work for your body. The foods that make you feel vibrant and energized will not be the same foods that work for your sister, or your favorite celebrity. Here at Integrative Nutrition, we call this bio individuality—the idea that there’s no one-size-fits-all diet. For Holli Thompson, a 2009 IIN graduate, this idea has evolved into her patented concept of Nutritional Style.
