Labor Day weekend marks the end of summer for most, thus fun in the sun comes to a wrap. Whether you were less diligent with reapplying sunscreen or simply had overexposure to the sun, you may notice dark spots or hyperpigmentation. Hyperpigmentation is the over production of melanin – the skin’s natural defense to protect against the suns harmful ultraviolet rays. Lessening the appearance of hyperpigmentation can be a challenge although achievable through:
- eating foods rich in antioxidants
- thoroughly cleansing the skin using Clarisonic cleansing brush
- applying antioxidants topically to skin
- skin lightening products
- proper use of sunscreen

I’ve found that there are certain things that help my clients maintain motivation when moving toward a goal or seeking to make a change in an aspect of their life. Here are 7 steps to help you become a champion.

As creatures that evolved in an environment that obligated constant movement the notion of sitting at a desk for 8-12 hours a day is totally unhealthy and foreign. Unfortunately, the last time I checked no one is really excited to pay me to go on monster hikes and epic bike rides 5 days a week. So I spend a fair amount of time in front of a computer just like most of you. However, being in front of a computer does not mean that you do not have to move at all, you can engineer sneaky ways to move even in the modern work space.
