How to Push Yourself to New Heights

-by JoAnna Haugen

Copia Magazine: New Heights We wake up, go about our daily tasks at work, squeeze in a few minutes with family and then crash back into bed before waking up and starting the routine all over again. Days become weeks, weeks become months and months become years, and, before we know it, many of us have fallen into a routine that leaves us feeling tired and jaded. One of the best ways to pull out of that slump-or avoid falling into it in the first place-is to challenge ourselves. There's no need to live life on the edge, but if you consciously realize that life is leaving you less than a little fulfilled, trade in that exhaustion for excitement when you push yourself a bit further than you have before.

How to Live a Barefoot Lifestyle

Get Back To Nature (it's cheaper than Prozac)

-by Karen Banes

Copia Magazine: Back to Nature Some psychologists and counsellors are prescribing a long walk in the woods, a fishing trip, or a day's canoeing to combat stress, improve mood and boost self-esteem. Some have been doing it for years. And they're not alternative, hippy 'crack-pot' practitioners either. Scientific evidence is on their side. Recent studies draw the same conclusions that anyone who has hit the hiking trails when feeling stressed might have drawn. Nature is good for you (psychologically speaking). More...
