How to Protect Yourself in Bear Country

Posted by Deanna Yudelson on Aug 7, 2017 10:07:25 AM

I’m what most call a city dweller, but every so often I do kick on my hiking boots to explore nature around me when the loud New York City streets become overwhelmingly loud, crowded, and this time of year, hot. Around this time last year, my friends and I packed into a car and drove to Upstate New York to go for a hike, “Will there be bears?” Shelly asked as we parked the car. I assured her “Of course not.” I’ve done this trail countless times, and haven’t crossed path with any furry creature, bear or bunny included. Of course, as if it was planned, the second we stepped out of our car and walked at least 100ft from the lot towards the trail a woman came up to us and said “be careful, I was on a run here when I ran past a family of bears.” Sure enough, we saw from a distance a large, assuming Mama Bear and her two (still shockingly large) cubs. To kill some time, we wandered into forest lodge and watched the bears until there was a safe distance between us, and we proceeded on our route.

Are You Hydrated During Your Outdoor Adventures?

Posted by Deanna Yudelson on Jul 31, 2017 3:27:39 PM

In an ideal world, I drink the healthy recommended dosage of 8 fluid ounces of water per day, starting from the moment I wake up. Theoretically, because it is summer, I would drink more water because I spend more times outdoors; but in actuality, we know that in most cases that glass of water is replaced with a refreshing glass of beer, which sounds quenching but is in actuality dehydrating. In turn, I’ve found that when I go on my morning runs I feel dehydrated and can’t finish my run without stopping for breath and feeling dizzy toward the end of my workout regimen. This is one of the many signs of dehydration. If you’ve been noticing these symptoms as well during your outdoor adventures, we have a list of other signs indicating that you’re dehydrated. Hydration isn’t only essential for healthy skin, but it also lubricates your joints, keeps your kidneys healthy and controls body temperatures.

Posted by Deanna Yudelson on Jul 19, 2017 12:29:00 PM

For the busy mind, fishing is an oasis of solitude within nature. The quiet, open waters are where you go to gather your thoughts, then return to land with a sense of rejuvenation and clarity - with some freshly caught dinner.

This past-time can also be a form of bonding with your children, as you can teach them tips to reel in the catch. They will likely sit quietly by your side and embrace the quiet waters with you.

Hold your horses, adrenaline junkies; we’re talking about the kind of adventure that soothes your soul and opens your mind. In this life, you’re opted to take many paths, but a reasonable percentage of them should be on a dirt road (seriously, it’s good for your health, but we’ll get into that later).  Travel somewhere the roads are less known, at least to you. This could be a new park, state, or even country. You’ll find that you feel better mentally and physically, and if you keep it up, it could even help you live longer.

In all its’ sun kissed , long nights, and day-drinking glory – summer has finally ascended on us, and we can’t let the days slip away.

How Running in the Morning Changed My Thoughts

Posted by Deanna Yudelson on May 19, 2017 8:24:24 AM

I too, have learned to tune out the “fitspo” nutcases who swear by their fitness regimen and the green juice that they believe can make them walk on water. Not literally, but you get the idea. In fact, the health craze has become so abundant lately that everyone believes they are an expert because they participate in the fad diet of the season. To be entirely honest, I think I’ve always tuned it out. Weight has always been something I’ve watched, but I learned that the best way to maintain your waistline is by some self-control, some self-indulgence, but a large lifestyle adjustment.
