January 3rd, 2019

It’s more than just a song lyric—rainy days really can get you down! Weather has a definite effect on our emotions. About 9 percent of people fall into a “rain haters” category, a group that feels angrier and less happy on days with more precipitation.  When it’s dark and dreary, some of us are more susceptible to feeling lonely or down. A lack of sunlight can cause Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD. This mood disorder usually affects people during the months when daylight becomes more scarce. When exposed to less sunlight, your body produces more melatonin, the hormone which... Read More

It’s Official, Winter is Coming!

Telluride Ski Resort

Today marked the first snow of the season in Denver and Boulder, and as winter approaches, so does the need to get your ski trip(s) planned and lift and plane tickets booked! After coming off a rough 2017-2018 winter, you may be wondering where to shoot for this season. While it’s hard to go wrong with any of Colorado’s ski terrain, a whole trip can be “boom or bust” based on snow conditions. Luckily, NOAA and ENSO are here to help you make the most educated decision as possible. All indications so far are good news for powder chasers looking to explore Colorado’s terrain this season!... Read More

How I Became a Full-Time Airstreamer: Part II

August 9th, 2018
Full-Time Airstreamer: Part II_Snowboarding

In part one of this post, which you can read here, I addressed why I lived a very regimented life for nearly two decades (and, yes, I’m not so naïve to think that I don’t still possess this quality – I simply know that I now manifest it in a way that feels healthy to who I am as a person). The second part of this post, which you are obviously reading at this very moment, addresses more specifically HOW I got here. To buy an Airstream and commit to a full-time nomadic lifestyle, more or less, was not an overnight decision. In fact, I started looking at them a year before actually biting the... Read More

Stem Ciders: The Unofficial Drink of Winter

November 10th, 2017

 I’ll be totally transparent and begin by mentioning up front that Stem Ciders is my favorite tap room in Denver. Since 2014, Stem changed the way I thought about cider, and has never stopped impressing me since. Whether you are already a cider fan, are cider-phobic, or have never tasted cider other than from a bottle out of a variety pack from the liquor store, you owe it to yourself to visit Stem. Located in the heart of RiNo, Stem Ciders opened its doors right before the RiNo arts district boom, and in the past (nearly four) years now, they have seen a lot of changes. Fortunately for... Read More

‘Tis the Season for SAD

November 9th, 2016

Now that Daylight Savings Time has ended, we face a few months of shorter days and less sun exposure.  For those who suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), this is a particularly difficult time of year. SAD is a type of depression triggered by seasonal light changes. In most cases, symptoms begin during late fall or early winter and start to fade away as the days become longer during spring. Symptoms of SAD include loss of interest in things that you once enjoyed, lack of energy, sadness, feelings of hopeless, difficulty concentrating, a strong desire to sleep, and changes in appetite... Read More

Why Am I Always Cold?

October 20th, 2016

If you’ve ever worked in a cube farm, you know the difficulty of establishing a temperature that suits everyone.  As someone who was cold natured, I frequently wore a sweater in the office on sweltering August days. Now that I work from home, I have complete control of the environmental temperature in my work space. While there are factors that influence how cold natured you are, such as low body fat, being cold could be a symptom of a health condition.  The most common condition that causes one to feel cold is anemia. Anemia is a blood disorder caused by a shortage of red blood cells,... Read More
