We all know that sitting is the new silent killer. Standing desk options are the new norm but why not take it up a notch for your wellness-minded attendees with a wobble board!
The Saint Charles streetcar line has been running since 1835, making it the oldest continuously operating streetcar line in the world. Now, in 2016, as we run throughout the city, along the lines of this historic New Orleans icon, we can feel the age of the dirt beneath us and the vibration of the streetcars as they approach and pass us. What a unique addition to a morning run!
Ok firstly, anyone who can take down an entire Muffuletta sandwich from Central Grocery deserves a rightful chapter in the "I can eat my freakin' face off" book. They are huge!!! Conservatively speaking we are talking about 775 calories. So if you chose to indulge in one of these gluttonous behemoths, here are 5 things you can do to burn that monster of a sandwich off.
Today’s vehicle of choice: not our feet, not our cars, not the street car, but our PEDALS! Yes, biking is one of the best ways to get active in the great outdoors without inducing the anxiety or dread that - let’s be honest, for most of us - running does. Getting up on two wheels can be enjoyable on even the most scorching of NOLA summer days. No longer simply a two-wheeled feat for our five-year-old selves, biking allows adult-us to enjoy leisurely, breezy relaxation in a matter of seconds, all the while our bodies burning calories and working to increase our metabolism.
Elizabeth Nicholson fell in love with New Orleans the first time she ever set foot on its cracked sidewalks. She never thought she'd be lucky enough to call this magical city home, but in 2010, the fates conspired to help her do just that. She came down from New York City - where she had been living for ten years - to perform in Let Freedom Swing! at the National World War II Museum (oh yeah, she's a classically trained actress, singer and dancer). The gig lasted three months, after which she planned to return home to NYC, but, as so many of these stories go in the Big Easy, the show closed and she just didn't want to leave. The rest, as they say, is history.
