Not all ingredients work best for the skin. It is important to combine the right ones to achieve a long-lasting effect

Skin care ingredients effectively treat your skin concerns like acne, aging, pigmentation and more at the cellular level. Because a single product may not be able to solve all of your skin concerns, it’s important to understand layering. Some active ingredients complement each other and provide additional benefits, while others should not be combined. The Derma Co presents an overview of what should and should never be paired together.

Active ingredients that work together perfectly

azelaic acid and niacinamide

. These ingredients have complementary benefits for your skin.

. They can be used together as these two ingredients target similar goals skin problems.

. This layer combination can help fight hyperpigmentation, boost collagen production for healthier skin, and prevent acne breakouts.

salicylic acid and niacinamide

. These two ingredients can be layered on top of each other for amazing skin benefits. Salicylic acid penetrates deep into the pores and frees them from excess sebum and impurities.

. Layering them helps control sebum production, fight blemishes and prevent essential oil loss.

. Reduce the signs of aging and prevent further breakouts.

Active ingredients that should be avoided together

Retinols and Vitamin C

These active ingredients cannot be mixed or layered on top of each other. Instead, using it in separate routines can help reduce signs of aging!

When using these ingredients, keep the following in mind:

. Both ingredients have different solubility requirements.

. The combination of treatments affects the effectiveness of the products.

. The pH can get out of balance.

. They must not dissolve or penetrate through the skin.

. May cause skin irritation if used on top of each other.

. Vitamin C can be used during the day while retinol can be used at night.

Vitamin C and AHAs/BHAs

Vitamin C is naturally highly acidic. It has an exfoliating effect on the skin, which is why it does not contain active ingredients such as:

. glycol

. salicylic acid

. lactic acids

. Using these with vitamin C will destabilize the pH balance and prevent it from working.

Ohiopyle’s population may be barely three dozen, but that number grows in the warmer months when visitors congregate at Ohiopyle State Park, an outdoor playground with pristine rivers and streams. Undulating roads lit by dappled sunlight lead to Ohiopyle Visitor Center, where you catch your first glimpse of the mighty Youghiogheny River. (That’s “yock-oh-ganey” for newbies.)

Lies in the Laurel Highlands, in southwestern Pennsylvania, Ohiopyle offers plenty of family-friendly activities, but the biggest draw is whitewater rafting. Enthusiasts travel from all over the world to race through the Class IV and V rapids of Youghiogheny. The experience is like a roller coaster ride with calm passages, slight swaying and churning rapids that require wild paddling to steer the spinning raft over boulders and narrow passages.

Ohiopyle Outfitters Adventures in the white water and Ohiopyle Trading Post Run rafting tours for three different difficulty levels. Experienced thrill-seekers should choose Upper Young, with 10 miles of steep, narrow, technical whitewater. The Lower Young’s 7-mile trip is designed for intermediate paddlers and is led by a paddle captain. The Middle Young is ideal for beginners looking for a fun day on the river.

wilderness voyageurs offers the possibility to combine half a day of rafting with cycling Great Allegheny Passage This adventure is self-guided but assisted by a dog handler, who can upgrade from a raft to an inflatable kayak for the water portion.

End your day with a scoop at the Ohiopyle Trading Post Hershey’s Ice Cream at the kickstand. Flavors change with the seasons, but Midnight Caramel River pays a fitting tribute.

After an unforgettable weekend on the river, you’ll be longing for more time to explore the mountains and rushing creeks of the undeveloped Laurel Highlands.

STAY

By DAVID BAUDER – AP Media Writer

NEW YORK (AP) – With one notable exception, Tanzanian President Samia Suluhu Hassan seemed to enjoy guiding American journalist Peter Greenberg around her country for the television show “The Royal Tour.”

She could have done without the time she spent recording voiceovers.

“You tortured me!” the African leader needled Greenberg at a New York screening of the show, which will air on PBS networks this spring.

“The Royal Tour,” a regular feature on PBS for more than two decades, is exactly what the name suggests. The head of state shows the experienced travel journalist and thus also his viewers the sights of a nation. Mexico, Israel, Ecuador, Rwanda and Poland have all been represented in the last ten years.

“This is the only show where I’m not the tour guide,” Greenberg said in an interview. “I am the visitor. And that’s where I like to be, because who knows a country better than the person who leads it?”

People also read…

Tanzania is the first royal tour since the pandemic began, which briefly kept Greenberg grounded and was a key factor in Hassan getting her job.

When the shutdown began, “I was in a bunker like everyone else,” said Greenberg, who as CBS News’ travel editor is at the center of his own empire. He hosts the regular show “Eye on Travel” for CBS Radio and “The Travel Detective” on PBS.

His bunker was in Manhattan. Restless, he began to rediscover his neighborhood like a traveler and discovered a bronze plaque honoring a New Yorker who died on the Titanic.

Eventually, he realized his job was to get back outside, tell people how to travel safely and comply with local COVID-19 regulations. Aside from getting COVID, what worries his followers the most is going somewhere and not being able to come back, he said.

So Greenberg went through the maze of paperwork and testing to illustrate how it could be done.

“In one country I had to get tested five times,” he said. “I thought my nose was going to fall off.”

In Tanzania, Hassan served as vice president to John Magufuli, a COVID denier who announced in 2020 that his country was free of the virus by divine intervention. He died in March 2021 aged 61 and although it has never been officially confirmed, it is widely believed that he died from the coronavirus.

Hassan took overand went demonstratively in front of cameras to get vaccinated.

Hassan’s royal touring schedule is like most of them. Greenberg gives a brief historical sketch of a country and illustrates where it is located, and is shown arriving at the official residence of the leader for an interview. Then they take in the sights.

In Tanzania, they strolled through a marketplace and toured a primary school in Zanzibar, gazed at majestic Kilimanjaro from the air, saw the rare tanzanite gemstone quarried and went on a safari in Serengeti National Park. Hassan got behind the wheel and, as she said, was driving for the first time in 15 years.

“The Royal Tour” is often filmed as if Greenberg and the leader were filming near-empty tourist attractions alone, but confident producers sometimes pull the cameras back. In Israel, it appears Greenberg is taking a boat trip down the Jordan River with only then-Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his family, until another view shows them surrounded by other boats filled with aid workers, a security detail, and the press.

The Israel tour, which aired in 2014, began with Netanyahu and Greenberg playing soccer with local children until the prime minister arrived torn a tendon and the recording had to be postponed for several months.

Hassan also had a more sobering stop, a huge government Stock filled with ivory confiscated from poachers, allowing her to speak out about the illegal trade that has decimated the elephant population.

When Greenberg visited Poland for a program in 2019, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki took him on an emotional walk through the museum on the site of the former WWII concentration camp Auschwitz.

To take part in “The Royal Tour,” Greenberg needs a director who speaks English, is willing to devote at least a day to filming, and who will hand over all editorial control — the latter requirement some potential attendees balk at.

“When I did it, I never thought it would turn out like this,” Hassan said in New York after first watching the episode about her country.

While not strictly Valentine’s Day, The Royal Tour offers countries looking to boost tourism a unique opportunity to showcase their specialties to millions of potential travelers.

Hassan saw this clearly when a viewer at the screening asked her when was the best time of year to visit.

June or July, she said. But don’t limit yourself.

“You can come anytime,” she says. “We can stop the rain for you.”

Arsenal’s leadership problems have been exposed by Tottenham and could cost them a Champions League spot https://bodymedicalcontouring.com/arsenals-leadership-problems-have-been-exposed-by-tottenham-and-could-cost-them-a-champions-league-spot/ Thu, 12 May 2022 22:25:10 +0000 https://bodymedicalcontouring.com/arsenals-leadership-problems-have-been-exposed-by-tottenham-and-could-cost-them-a-champions-league-spot/ LONDON – The only good news for Arsenal after their humiliating 3-0 defeat at Tottenham Hotspur in the north London derby was that Champions League qualification remains in the hands of Mikel Arteta, despite scenes of celebration among home fans at the end of the game and his team. – Which Premier League teams are […]]]>

LONDON – The only good news for Arsenal after their humiliating 3-0 defeat at Tottenham Hotspur in the north London derby was that Champions League qualification remains in the hands of Mikel Arteta, despite scenes of celebration among home fans at the end of the game and his team.

– Which Premier League teams are scheduled for European competition?
– ESPN+ Viewer Guide: LaLiga, Bundesliga, MLS, FA Cup, more
– You don’t have ESPN? Get instant access

It probably didn’t feel like it as Gunners captain Martin Odegaard led his humbled team-mates to their supporters to offer an apologetic thank you to those who stuck around to the end, but the math is clear – if Arsenal have their last two on Monday Matches wins against Newcastle United and six days later at home to Everton, the Emirates Stadium will host Champions League football again next season for the first time since 2017, regardless of what Spurs do in their home final against Burnley and the final game in Norwich City to do.

“The disappointment shouldn’t ruin the great chance of the two games we have ahead of us,” said Arteta after Thursday’s defeat. “We can’t wait to play on Monday, that’s how I feel and that’s all I have to say.”

But if Arsenal are to beat Spurs to the finish line in the race for fourth place, they’ll need to pass a test of nerve and character to achieve their goal and we still don’t know if this Arsenal side have the qualities to do it. And with centre-back Rob Holding set to miss the game against Newcastle through suspension after being sent off for two yellow cards – both for fouls on Son Heung-min – Gabriel will almost certainly be sidelined with a hamstring injury sustained in the final stages against the Spurs have Arsenal to solve crucial defensive problems.

However, Arteta can improve his defense. The Arsenal manager can field Granit Xhaka in the middle and hope Ben White’s hamstring injury has recovered sufficiently for him to start at Newcastle. The former Brighton defender was benched at Spurs but Arteta chose not to risk his fitness as the game was lost at half-time. But while Arteta can rearrange his squad, this season’s results suggest he will travel to St James’ Park, unaware of whether his players will rise to the challenge against Newcastle and then Everton.

Will they do what they have done at Chelsea and West Ham United in recent weeks by responding to the pressure with a confident, attacking performance that delivers three points, or will they return to the panicked side who have played back-to-back games against Crystal Palace, Brighton and lost? Southampton last month?

In short, this question has been Arsenal’s problem for too long and predates Arteta’s arrival as manager following the sacking of Unai Emery in December 2019. They blow hot and cold and their inconsistency and fragility is why they are now a must for Newcastle go and win. Those three defeats to Palace, Brighton and Southampton – games Arsenal should have won – could see them missing out on Champions League football again.

Odegaard’s selection as captain in recent weeks, with regular skipper Alexandre Lacazette absent from the starting line-up, underscores the obvious flaws in Arteta’s side – a lack of seasoned experience in key areas. Arsenal are still missing one or more players who sense danger in games and know when to adjust the pace to their own goals. Xhaka has proven too many times too ruthless to properly lead the team, while when Lacazette is playing, he’s too focused on his game to lead others.

The captaincy has thus fallen onto Odegaard’s talented shoulders, despite the fact that the ex-Real Madrid midfielder is only 23 and still holding his own in the upper echelons of the game. The Norway international is a very good player, someone who will be a central figure in Arsenal’s future, but he doesn’t yet have the experience to lead a club like Arsenal.

Yet Arteta will have looked around his squad and seen that he had few other options for the captaincy, and that was confirmed during the performance against Spurs, where the likes of Holding, Gabriel Martinelli, Cedric Soares, Bukayo Saka and Odegaard showed up needed. older head to guide them through a difficult experience against a team that had far more experience at the highest level.

In contrast, Spurs were packed with players who had been playing at the highest level for years – Son, Harry Kane, Hugo Lloris, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Eric Dier all showed their experience in the game, as did coach Antonio Conte far more often Block as Arteta.

Arsenal’s problem isn’t unique – Manchester United are another big club struggling to find the right characters to bond the team together – but Arteta has a promising group of up-and-coming players who just need some on-pitch guidance to make it happen to help them take the club back to where it needs to be. But missing out on Europe’s top club competition could send Arsenal through their vicious cycle for another spin. It would deny them the opportunity to recruit top players with Champions League funds – a potential move for City’s Gabriel Jesus could be met if they end up in the Europa League – while players like Saka and Martinelli attracted interest from players like Saka and Martinelli could awaken Liverpool and City who could offer elite-level football and the financial boost that comes with it.

So it’s a big week for Arsenal. They are in a better position than a year ago when they finished eighth and missed out on the European Cup, but their return to the Champions League after defeat at Spurs is now in the balance. The odds are still slightly in Arsenal’s favor, however, so now is the time to silence the doubters by proving they can deliver when things heat up.

John and Ursula Lentz have lived near the Lakeside Club in Mahtomedi for more than 35 years.

The former supper club at 10 Old Wildwood Road is a local landmark that featured in the movie Fargo. Remember the scene where Police Commissioner Marge Gunderson (Oscar winner Frances McDormand) interviews some prostitutes? Gunderson’s squad car is parked in the snow in front of the club.

The Lakeside Club closed in 2020 after around 60 years of operation. Officials from St. Paul’s Hearth Development have proposed demolishing the vacant building and building a three-story, market-priced apartment complex on the 10-acre site.

The Lentzes say the 39-unit development would radically change the character of their neighborhood, which features mature trees and single-family homes set back from the street.

“If you drive down Old Wildwood Road, you can see houses, but they’re a long way from the road,” John Lentz said. “When that gets built, all of a sudden it’ll be ‘Boom!’ It will be everything you see.”

The Lentzes know that the property, which is designated as a compact apartment building, will eventually be built on.

“There is no question that a development … that fits into and enhances the district and the city is desirable,” wrote Ursula Lentz in a letter to the city administration. “However, apart from the Lakeside Club, which has closed, there are no shops in the area and no apartment buildings nearby. With the exception of the Lakeside Club, the area is single-family residential. A three-story apartment building does not fit into the neighborhood; A more harmonious, smaller development is needed and has been requested by nearly 200 of the neighbors living in the area. … The proposed structure would be twice the height of neighboring homes and have a footprint nearly ten times that of nearby apartment buildings. It’s not what you would call harmonic.”

Among the concerns of the neighbors: an increase in traffic, loss of natural light, light pollution and environmental problems.

“People move to Mahtomedi because it’s a ‘small town’ – that’s the slogan on every welcome sign you see when you enter the city,” said Kelly McShane, who also lives in the neighborhood. “A building of this size and density does not fit into the mature and dense single family development in which this development is proposed. It will stick out like a sore thumb.”

The developer’s variance request for construction of the 39-unit complex will be heard by the city’s planning commission on Wednesday evening. The matter is expected to be heard by Mahtomedi City Council on May 17.

APARTMENT PROPOSAL

In addition to approving the site plan, Hearth officials are seeking approval of a variance from the city’s Coastal Overlay District maximum elevation requirement and approval of variances to allow for setback variances, city planner Hannah Rybak said.

In 2014, city officials approved plans for a 39-unit senior citizens’ cooperative on the site, but the project was never built, Rybak said, because the developer was unable to hit the threshold of units for sale to begin construction .

Hearth officials came to town in February with plans for a 41-unit complex with a gabled roof that was 47 feet high. The Planning Commission voted 6-1 to recommend rejection of the project.

The developer then changed plans, reducing the number of units to 39 and switching to a flat roof, which reduces the overall height to 34 feet, 5 inches, Rybak said.

In addition, the developers lowered the southeast portion of the building from three stories to two stories, reducing the structure’s visual impact from Lincolntown Avenue, she said.

In her memo to city officials, Rybak wrote that granting the elevation and setback variances would not change the essential character of the site.

“Surrounding the property are roads, a path, parkland and the large wetland area which provides additional buffer space between the proposed dwelling and the single family homes in the area,” she wrote. “The distance between them ensures that none of the other residential uses are overshadowed by this development. Thirty-nine residential units have much less impact than the traffic generated by the restaurant that formerly operated on the site. The landscape plan is robust and serves to soften the impact of the building.”

LIVING OPTIONS

City Manager Scott Neilson said the city has designated the area as a high-density multifamily building in its Comprehensive Plan for 2040, a document designed to guide development and infrastructure priorities.

The project would serve the goal of diversifying housing opportunities within the city due to the lack of market-driven, age-independent housing options, he said. There is currently only one other off-the-shelf apartment complex in the city, he said.

In November, Mahtomedi city officials approved plans for Wildwood Apartments, a 110-unit apartment complex, half of which will be reserved for lower-income tenants. There are also plans to build another 59-unit apartment complex on the site of St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church.

Mahtomedi Lakes would feature a common room, outdoor patio, rooftop deck and fitness center. The apartments would be a mix of one- and two-bedroom units, with the six largest units — two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a den — being 1,473 square feet, said Link Wilson, partner at Kaas Wilson Architects in Bloomington.

An underground car park with 48 parking spaces and 25 parking spaces on the surface are planned. There will be connections to hiking and biking trails, indoor and outdoor bike parking, an electric bike charging station, an electric car charging station, enclosed garbage and recycling chutes, and a secure parcel drop-off area.

“For a small 39-unit home, it’s packed with a lot of amenities,” Wilson said. “The team, which includes a biologist, a landscape architect and a civil engineer, worked very hard to construct a beautiful building on this site that responds to the natural features in and around the entire neighborhood.”

How to avoid buying a lemon with Fair Go’s car buying guide https://bodymedicalcontouring.com/how-to-avoid-buying-a-lemon-with-fair-gos-car-buying-guide/ Mon, 09 May 2022 09:51:37 +0000 https://bodymedicalcontouring.com/how-to-avoid-buying-a-lemon-with-fair-gos-car-buying-guide/ Know what you’re looking for, start saving early and opt for something economical, these are the top tips from first-time buyers to those about to buy their vehicle, but there’s more to it.

Know what you’re looking for, start saving early and opt for something economical, these are the top tips from first-time buyers to those about to buy their vehicle, but there’s more to it.

Now is a good time to think about it. Winter is the peak buying season for first-time car owners, falling six months after the peak number of 16th birthdays, when new drivers begin to get their restricted driver’s licenses.

A first car can be the first major consumer concern, but there are many simple defensive buying steps everyone should take when in the used car market.

Fair Go asked three 17-year-old first-time buyers at Albany Senior High School for advice. It runs an Adulting 101 course that covers life skills students find they want to learn — how to apply for a job, do your taxes, cook, or buy a car.

Rebecca Furness knew she wanted a gray Mazda Demio because it would be cheap to run and easy to keep clean, so she and her family scoured truck stops until she got what she wanted for $7,000.

“It had pretty good mileage. We took it for a test drive and it had a pretty good history.”

Twin brother Matthew knew he needed trunk space, so he settled on a Nissan Bluebird sedan—older, less fuel-efficient, but slightly cheaper at $5800.

“One of our family friends who does car maintenance checked it out and made sure it’s safe.”

Both bought from retailers, meaning the purchase is covered by the Consumer Guarantees Act – meaning a “fair and reasonable” test will apply to any fault that later emerges.

Classmate Mackenzie Hill bought her Mazda Axela privately — meaning there’s no CGA protection — but her family knew the seller, so there was trust and confidence.

“We knew they didn’t really drive it around much, it was their spare family car.”

Which brings us to the best “ouch” question you can ask when buying – why is the seller selling?

“Does the car have any problems, noise, service history, accident damage records? Does it have proof of eligibility?” asks Greg Hedgepeth, Managing Director of Turners Cars.

Of course, this WoF should not be more than a month old at the time of sale, unless the buyer signs an agreement to accept the car in this condition.

According to Hedgepeth, the WoF is just a visual safety check, so a pre-purchase inspection is a must to delve deeply into potential mechanical issues, especially on older, cheaper cars.

Inspections can cost the buyer $100 to $200, much less than the thousands of dollars it could cost to later repair a major fault.

If the seller is reluctant to let one in, “that would be a red flag,” says Hedgepeth.

There are Limits; Hedgepeth warns that the companies that do pre-sale inspections usually have a disclaimer saying they do their best efforts but accept no liability if something is missed during the inspection.

“It’s difficult to find every problem in a car. There’s a lot of mechanical work, a lot of it is cased, and other than actually disassembling the engine or the transmission, it’s really difficult to know.”

He says Turners Auctions uses diagnostic scanning tools that are pretty good at spotting problems. These include whether anyone else has previously used a scan tool to erase data on the car, which could indicate potential problems, an unusual but revealing red flag.

After the sale, it’s a balance between complying with the law and doing good business.

“It comes down to what is fair and reasonable in terms of the age of the vehicle, the mileage, the condition of the vehicle as shown by the price paid for it. When you look at all of these things, is it fair and reasonable that this car would have had this problem within this timeframe since purchase?” says Hedgepeth.

Our trio of first-time buyers didn’t have any major problems with their cars for the first 11 months – and some would now be reluctant to go back to the seller should a problem arise.

“Possibly if it was something really big that could have been there when I got it, then I would consider it,” says Matthew Furness.

His classmates say they’d probably just take it on the chin and go to a mechanic, which sounds like the confidence that comes from doing your homework at all.

You can use your car not only for the car but also for the company that sells it by looking for reviews online. Local site Buyer Rating carries customer ratings for dealers; Google and Facebook are awash with recommendations, so use your judgement.

And of course, if it’s a private sale, double that check and ask the ouch questions.

Rock climbing as a recreational sport became popular with the nation in the 1980s first indoor climbing hall Opening in Seattle. Today there are more than 500 indoor climbing walls in the United States, powering a $493 million industry, according to market research firms IBIS World.

The new Olympic sport includes three disciplines: bouldering, which is performed on lower walls without a rope; speed climbing, where the person who gets to the top fastest wins; and lead climbing, where the goal is to climb as high as possible within a time limit.

While rock climbing attracts the adventurous, others find it to be an excellent workout that also calms and sharpens the mind.

Here are eight reasons why you should try rock climbing.

Important NOTE: Before beginning any new exercise program, consult your doctor. Stop immediately if you feel pain.

Increases cardiorespiratory fitness

Fast sports like running, soccer, and biking come to mind as workouts that get your heart rate up. But climbing also makes the heart beat faster, as it involves a lot of pulling, pushing and lifting. And the more challenging the climb compared to your ability, the more training.
Elite athletes on the USA Climbing national team have heart rates up to about 150 beats per minute while they climbed, a pretty impressive number, said Zack DiCristino, the team’s physical therapist and medical manager. According to a study published in the study, indoor rock climbing was found to require the same energy expenditure as running, 8 to 11 minutes per mile British Journal of Sports Medicine.

Builds muscle strength

Track exercise intensity with the 'talking test'
It’s not surprising that pulling your body up a rock face builds muscle in your arms, but climbing does a full body exercise. In addition to training your biceps, triceps, and deltoids, it will also work your abs, obliques, glutes, hamstrings, calves, and more.

“When you rock climb, you build a lot of upper body strength, especially in your hands and fingers,” DiCristino said. “But what a lot of people don’t realize is that with the right technique, you also get a pretty good lower body workout with all the squats and jumps.”

Improves flexibility and balance

Climbing requires you to be able to stretch your arms and legs high and wide and to contort your body into unusual positions. And of course you have to balance on tiny steps. The more you climb, the better your flexibility, balance, and coordination.

“Climbing helps you be aware of your body and improves the way you move your body,” said Nick Wilkes, owner and head coach at Devils Lake Climbing Guides, a mountain guide service in Madison, Wisconsin.

Improves memory and problem solving

How to make skating a good workout

A lot of the skill of rock climbing comes from planning your climbing route in advance and memorizing it. You must also be able to solve problems on the fly and change your route or sequences when you encounter unexpected obstacles. “Climbing is inherently very cognitive,” DiCristino said.

In fact, activities like rock climbing have been shown to increase working memory capacity by 50% a study conducted by researchers at the University of North Florida. And women are better beginner climbers than men because they’re used to solving physical problems with their brains, Wilkes noted.

Increases communication skills

Communication skills are essential to your safety. Rope climbers have an attendant on the ground, called a belayer, who manipulates the rope through a device to control tension or slack, arrest falls, and lower the climber. During an ascent, the duo must constantly communicate over issues such as desired rope tension, when the climber wishes to rest, and when to descend.

Communication is key, with a climber and a belayer handling the rope to build trust in each other.

“In order for me to be a better climber, I need to communicate clearly with the person belaying me so they know how I’m feeling, when I need a break or if I want to change the climb in any way,” said Lindsay Wenndt , a certified health coach, fitness trainer and owner of Break Free Fitness from Atlanta.

“The same goes if I’m the one holding the rope,” she said. “It’s my job to encourage my partner when she feels she can’t perform a certain move, to suggest a more efficient way to complete a route, and to be her biggest cheerleader when she faces a new obstacle or goal.” overcomes.”

Boosts confidence

Belaying – whether as a belayer or a climber – requires a lot of trust as it is essential for safety. “I have to have complete trust in my partner,” Wenndt said, knowing full well that if she falls, they have her. “I also have to trust myself that I will be able to do at least one thing on this path that I don’t think is possible.”

It’s easier to build confidence through climbing than in a lower-risk sport, Wilkes said. “Securing someone or being secured has a life and death element,” he said. “This leads to a deeper experience for people.”

Build community

Indoor climbing offers physical, social and psychological benefits, including camaraderie, according to a US Department of Veterans Affairs study on adaptive rock climbing for people with disabilities. And most climbers say the best thing about their sport is that it’s a tight-knit community, DiCristino said.

“When you go to a climbing gym, they often have notice boards where people are looking for a partner to climb with,” he said. “It’s a great way to meet people.”

Fights depression

Forest bathing could be the key to feeling better — and you can even do it at work
Like many other sports, rock climbing can help fight the blues. researchers in Germany found that rock climbing is a successful psychotherapy for adults with depression thanks to its physical, social, and mental benefits. Climbing outside might give you an extra boost Research has also shown Spending time in nature is a natural antidepressant.

Climbing is also very thoughtful, Wilkes said. “It’s a great mirror that shows you how to deal with fear, disappointment and success, and how to deal with the rest of your life as well.”
