As promised, here are some tidbits from around the web that I found interesting or useful. 🙂
Are You Sitting Down? Why You Shouldn’t Be No one’s surprised that we sit too much in our culture. Between computer work and reading and watching TV, we spend a whole lot of time on our backsides. But I found the tales of lowered tables and sitting on the floor more often for meals fascinating. True confession: I make it about five minutes on the floor before my legs start falling asleep. I’m a wimp in that department. Maybe some of the ideas in this blog post would help with that. If nothing else, picnics on the living room floor would make for some fun family time!
Top 10 Migraine Triggers, According to Study I have shared this on Facebook, so friends and family reading this may have already seen it there. But I’m hurting right now because of monthly hormones (trigger #5 on this list), so it’s on my mind again. Migraine resources often point to food triggers, but those don’t make an appearance on this list. A fellow migraineur and I decided that most of us who suffer figure out our food triggers pretty quickly–and avoid them. Most of the triggers on this list are ones you can’t control (weather changes, for example). They’re what’s left after you’ve eliminated all of the avoidable triggers.

I may not have this many links every week, but hopefully there’s something here for everyone!
