What is the Chinese square dance?
What is the Chinese square dance?
It is sad to see elderly people left alone or still having to work towards eternity, especially in places that do not provide a pension plan.  It is hard to find entertainment for the elderly. Loneliness and a lack of community are major problems older people face in our society. Also if they are too lonely, they also love to meddle with your affairs. Square dance in mainland China started as a way for old people to exercise through soft dancing, accompanied by happy music.  These dances often ...

Weight loss tips - the real deal
Weight loss tips - the real deal
No, it is not just about diet and exercise.  Age and genetics come first.  Aside from that, cortisols increase your appetite, and insulin instructs your body to store fat.  So first, 1) Cut off stress factors in your life, ghost your toxic friends, and minimize your interactions with abusive people in your life;  2) Care less about people who wrongly accuse you; stand up for yourself when necessary, but radically accept the fact that not everyone is going to like you, and not everyone is open ...

Gym vs calisthenics, which one is more popular?
Gym vs calisthenics, which one is more popular?
Both weight lifting and calisthenics follow the same philosophy: resistance training.  This means that they are both following a legitimate path. I would personally advise against certain Youtube workouts where the entire video is just a warm-up routine.  However, some people prefer weight machines, or free weights at the gym, while others prefer doing bodyweight workouts in a park, or with furniture at home. I personally think both paths lead to great results, so it really comes down to person...
