Pokémon GO Is Changing The World

You must have seen them: people walking around, cell phones in hand, checking regularly to see what new beasts have spawned nearby. Players can be spotted around residential neighbourhoods, but even more often around downtown cores, waterfronts, and any PokéStop that has been "lured." You will see these people walking, running, or biking around -- something the older generations have been so yearning their children and grandchildren to be doing more often for decades.

I Don't Have to Lose Weight to Be a Yogi

Yoga has taught me to own up to myself and who I am now. Not who I was or who I could be. I never shamed my body or hated it, but I'm glad to be at a happy relationship with it. I look at my big chubby body and am happy and content with it. I feel it is important to see bigger bodied people out there. When I first started yoga, it was very rare and uncommon to see bigger yogis practicing yoga. Now I am so ecstatic that there so many people who are trying yoga for themselves.
