UPRIGHT GO: Start The New Year Off Right By Improving Your Posture!

A New Year comes with new resolutions. Every year I set my intentions to be better physically, mentally, and spiritually and this year is no different. However, a couple months ago I was thrown a bit of a curve ball when I found out I tore a tendon in my left shoulder pretty bad.

The Perfect Places To Take Your Family On Vacation

I’m gonna give every parent out there some free advice: when you go on vacations with your family, don’t make them take tours. Just don’t. Unless it’s a teddy bear factory, I guarantee your kids will not even remotely care about whatever it is this nonspecific place is for. The mistake some parents make when planning family vacations is choosing activities that only they consider fun. If you’re gonna bring the kids, you gotta work with them.
