This Month's Updates

Sample Updates

Our latest Impulse (40 serving) sample arrived on Saturday! While I know what I would say about this sample, our team of testers is trying it as I write this.

On top of this, we are planning on creating sample packets of Spark, Drift, and Impulse! This is one of our most requested things, and we can't wait to share some with you all!

7 Ways To Get Off The Couch & Exercise When You Are Depressed
7 Ways To Get Off The Couch & Exercise When You Are Depressed

When you're depressed, even when you're not expending a lot of energy... you don't feel like you have any energy to spare to begin with.

It can be aggravating to hear that you need to work out to boost your endorphins, (or whatever your friends say to you).

In reality, they aren't wrong... but how can you exercise if you can't even get out of bed?

The Inactivity Trap: Where Depression and Physical Inactivity Collide

When I was overweight, I was inactive, depressed, and had insomnia.

I would isolate myself from social interaction, which led me down a dark path where I contemplated suicide.

Eventually, fitness was my salvation, as physical activity led to me sleeping better, eating better, feeling better, and thinking better.

Prior to exercise, I was stuck in what was deemed an Inactivity Trap.

So in this post, we are going to go over an article that was written in 2009 with the same name, called "The Inactivity Trap". This article included studies that supported their claims from a psychological standpoint which intrigued me as well.

So let's dive into what the Inactivity Trap is.
