Other homes for your used stuff
After six months of cold weather and indoor hibernation, the weather is finally nice and warm again. Yes, spring is here. Spring is a time for a new beginning and a fresh start, for renewal and growth. For a lot of people this means it's time to do spring cleaning.

Get fit with yoga in the new year
If you are one of those people who make New Year's resolutions, I bet exercising and getting fit are probably on your list. In our modern society, where a sedentary lifestyle dominates our daily living and so many people are obese and out of shape, this really should be on the top...
