When we think about fitness, many of us stretch only before a workout. However, stretching is more important than you think, especially if you spend the majority of your day sitting at a desk. Take a moment on Monday to make stretching a part of your routine, even when you’re not getting ready for an intense workout. Because so many people are sitting for so many hours at a time, muscles tighten up and cause imbalances in the body. Stretching is a great way to maintain blood circulation.
It has been about 25 years since I went through puberty, but I’d be lying if I said it still didn’t haunt me once in a while. This isn’t going to be a “woe is me” story because I turned out fine. In fact, that’s what I’d love to tell the adolescent version of myself, the Jamie who really wondered where that meandering hormonal journey was going way back when. So without further ado, here is a letter to myself. Hello from Age 37!
How do you feel after a vigorous workout? (Besides sweaty?) If you’ve ever felt buzzed, you’re like many who have experienced the so-called “runner’s high.” Scientists have been studying this post-workout sensation for years, and it may have a more complicated explanation. High-impact workouts do have an intoxicating effect on the brain, so when you get into high gear this Monday, make sure you get your brain in gear, too!
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
