Ice Cold Advice for Your Well-being

April 19th, 2018

Taking a cold shower, unless it is a sweltering hot day, does not sound like a desirable practice. Research, however, shows that those who took a cold shower regularly, took fewer sick days than those who did not. A study from the Netherlands revealed that those who finished their daily showers with 30-, 60- or 90-second blasts of chilly water, were less likely to take a sick day at work. Cold water didn’t keep participants from being sick, but those who took cold showers (roughly 50 degrees Fahrenheit) experienced more mild symptoms and had more energy, which allowed them to power through work... Read More

Do I Have a Cold or The Flu?

October 26th, 2016

It’s cold and flu season again!  Because colds and flu share many symptoms, it can be difficult, if not impossible, to tell the difference between them. The flu and the common cold are both respiratory illnesses but they are caused by different viruses. Colds generally do not result in serious health problems, such as pneumonia, while flu can have very serious complications, especially for older adults, those with weakened immune systems or young children. Symptoms of flu include fever, chills, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle or body aches, headaches and fatigue. Cold symptoms... Read More

Why The Weatherman Can Be Your Business’ BFF: 3 Tips to making weather-relevant content

November 18th, 2014

When the weather turns cold and people find themselves inside more it’s a great opportunity to put those cozy, hot chocolate drinking web surfers to work! What do I mean: the cold – especially very harsh and snowy days that come out of no where, like last week in Boulder – gets people on their computers. They chat, watch videos, share and read; they get on Facebook, they tweet, and scroll through all the content they missed from earlier in the week. Essentially, snow makes for a lazy day attitude and this is a great, if not best time for businesses to push some unscheduled content into your,... Read More

Why You Should Expect the Unexpected this Winter in Boulder

November 12th, 2014

It was around noon on Monday, November 10th when snow blanketed Boulder. This frigid snow blanket, which coated Boulder after a morning high of 66° F, took many residents by surprise. Walking around campus showcased students wearing shorts and T-shirts, reflecting how many people were unprepared for such sudden change in weather. I too, was once unprepared for this sort of weather pattern. I never made that mistake again. I’ve lived in Colorado my entire life, which means I should be fairly accustomed to Colorado’s sudden changes in weather. When I was a freshman at Colorado... Read More
