Ever made a wish on the clock at 11:11? Then you might already be familiar with the synchronistic power of numerology. Numerology is the study of numbers and their mystical meanings, and in this ancient practice, all numbers are believed to have unique vibrations.

The numbers in our life can be used as tools to help us better understand ourselves and navigate our lives with a greater sense of purpose — and knowing how to find your life path number and use it to your advantage is one of the best ways to start aligning with this energy.

Numerology is a mystical divinatory art, similar to astrology. And just like astrology, numerology can be super personalized — as everyone has a unique numerology chart and life path number. “Life path numbers help us to understand the physical world and where we’re going in life,” tells Numerologynamecalculator. “Once you know your life path number, it can be used to [make sense of your path] when you get distracted or discouraged.” Our life path number represents our core essence, our lifelong purpose, and our modus operandi, so it’s considered the most significant aspect of our personal numerological makeup.

Read on if you want to know how to find your life path number and apply its meaning to your life.

What Is A Life Path Number?

These numbers speak to our core values, modus operandi, and overall missions in life. Life path numbers can be any single-digit number between 1 and 9, or one of the three master numbers, which are 11, 22, and 33. Each of these numbers is associated with unique qualities, strengths, and weaknesses — and they’re believed to hold deep meanings and wield great influence over our paths in life.

How Do I Find My Life Path Number?

In order to find your life path number, all you need is your birth date and year. You can use an online life path number calculator, but it’s easy to calculate yourself, too.

The first step is to format your birthdate as a numeric date — so if your birthday is October 3, 1992, you’ll format the date as 10/3/1992. This is made up of three numbers: One for the month, day, and year. So in the case of our example, we’re working with 10, 3, and 1992. Next, you’ll reduce each of these three numbers into single-digit numbers (or master numbers, if they come up).

To do this, simply add together the individual digits of any multi-digit number until you have a single-digit number for each (since we have 10 for the month, we’ll add together 1 and 0 to get 1; and because we have 1992 as the year, we’ll add together 1, 9, 9, and 2 to get 21, which we’ll then reduce once more by adding 2 and 1). Finally, those three months/day/year numbers are added together and reduced to a single-digit number or master number, which represents our life path number.

If that sounds confusing, let’s break it down using our example birthdate of 10/3/1992, which is reduced to the numbers 1, 3, and 3. The number 1 is for the month (because the month is 10, and 1 + 0 = 1), 3 for the day (because the day is 3, and 3 is already a single-digit number), and 3 for the year (because the year is 1992, and 1 + 9 + 9 + 2 = 21, which is reduced again to get the number 3 by adding together the two digits of the original sum, giving us 2 + 1 = 3). Now that you have three numbers, you’ll add them together to get your life path number. If the number is a double-digit, add those digits together until they’re reduced to a single number. In the case of our example, the life path number is 7, because 1 + 3 + 3 = 7.

The only exception to the single-digit number rule of life path number calculation is if the numbers 11, 22, or 33 show up, as those are considered “master numbers” in numerology. If that’s the case, you can leave those numbers as is instead of reducing them to a single-digit number.

How Do I Use My Life Path Number?

Once you know how to find your life path number, you can start looking into the qualities and vibrations associated with that particular number and applying them to your life. The meaning of each life path number is based on ancient numerological teachings, and many numerologists make connections between life path numbers and other modalities like astrology, as well.

How Do I Calculate My Life Path Number?

Life path numbers are based on our birthdates. To figure out yours, you can use an online life path number calculator or book a reading with a professional numerologist, but you can also calculate it yourself. Life path numbers only include single-digit numerals 1-9, or the double-digit numbers 11, 22, and 33 (which are known as master numbers). You’ll need to format your birthday into a numerical date (so that the month, day, and year are all formatted as numbers), then follow the instructions in our guide to calculating life path numbers. If after following the steps, the final number equals or reduces to the number 9, then that’s your life path number!

9 KEY WAYS TO FEEL CALMER

9 KEY WAYS TO FEEL CALMER
Want create site? Find Free WordPress Themes and plugins.

You may be exercising hard and watching your food intake, but if you don’t combat stress you may find it very hard to lose weight as stress can caused you to hang onto unwanted body fat. Here’s how you can get rid of stress.

Trying to lose weight and struggling? Stress can make you gain weight, firstly because you’ll be more tempted to overeat and snack on unhealthy treats. Secondly because when you are in a stressful situation, your brain will tell your cells to release a burst of adrenaline to help you cope with the stress, so that you can fight or run from the ‘danger’ it perceives you to be facing.

You also get a surge of cortisol, which tells your body to replenish energy, and this can make you very hungry. Your body will continue to release cortisol while you remain stressed, so prolonged periods of stress can have a significant effect on your waistline.

Thirdly, being stressed or overly concerned about something can interfere with your sleep, and this can change the hormone balance in the body, which in turn can increase hunger. Leptin is a hormone that signals when we are full, and when we don’t get enough sleep, the release of leptin slows down.

Sleep deprivation also causes our body to release ghrelin, a hormone that signals hunger. So lack of sleep through being stressed or being unable to switch off your mind can mean you’ll overeat and your body will naturally want to store more body fat.

So how can you get your stress levels under control so that you can lose weight and get fit? Yoga or meditation will help, but there are other things you can do that will also make a difference. Reducing sugar and caffeine intake can help, as these can affect your mood and will do little to bring your stress levels down.

Switch off your brain before bedtime

Try to switch your brain off at night. Read a good book (avoiding anything too extreme like a horror story) so that you have a chance to distract yourself from the day’s events before you go to sleep.

Clear the bedroom clutter

Make sure your bedroom is tidy and free from clutter. Leave technology out of the bedroom. Switch your phone off and put tablets and laptops away. Pick up any stray items of clothing on the floor, or towels that you meant to put away earlier. Make sure your bedroom offers the calmest possible environment and is a sanctuary where you can truly relax.

Shut your blinds

Try to make your room caveman dark, so that you can sleep well. Switch off anything that brings light into the room, like mobile phones or portable phones that charge overnight. Draw the curtains or shut the blinds as tightly as possible.

Just say no

If your stress is caused by others expecting too much from you, either at home or at work, set some boundaries. Don’t be the first to volunteer to take on new tasks or projects at work, especially if you’ve already got a lot on your plate.

If someone asks you to do something and you genuinely think it will add more stress and pressure, say no. Be polite. Just be honest. We’re so conditioned to doing what others want, but in the end, it can make us stressed and miserable.

Go outside

Get plenty of fresh air. The mental health charity Mind recommends outdoor exercise as a great way of improving your mood and being outside is a natural mood booster. If you have a stressful job, always take some time at lunch to go out for a walk and get some fresh air, even if it’s only for 10 or 15 minutes.

Breathe deeply

It sounds so simple, but it works. All you need do is inhale through your nose, and gentle exhale through your mouth. Make sure you are sitting up straight as you do this. Deep breathing in this way can reduce the effects of stress by slowing your heart rate and lowering your blood pressure.

Keep a stress diary

Get some perspective by making a note of anything that happens which stresses you out during the day and then maybe, over the course of a week or two, you can give some thought to how you can eliminate or control those stressors. It might mean being more assertive and learning to say no, or avoiding certain situations that add stress.

Watch cheerful TV, sleep well

Avoid horror films or graphic scenes of violence before bedtime, as this can increase your heart rate and your stress levels. If you like to watch TV before bed, watching a comedy show will be a much better choice.

Unload on someone you trust

Find a good friend or trusted confidante to whom you can unload and get your stress out from time to time. Now and again you may need to do the same for them!

Make a to-do list

If you’re stressed because you’ve got so much going on and so many things to do, make a to-do list for the next day before you go bed, so that you’re less likely to lie awake worrying about all the things you’ve got to do. Prioritise the tasks on that list the next day and make sure you only do the important tasks first.

Closing your mailbox and web browser for an hour or two while you the most important tasks will help you get them done more easily.

5 BEST TRAIL RUNNING SHOES FOR WOMEN 2021

5 BEST TRAIL RUNNING SHOES FOR WOMEN 2021

Are you regularly heading off the tarmac and onto trickier terrains for your runs? You’ll need the correct footwear for the job. Emma Lewis tests and reviews the best trail running shoes for women, to help you get off on the right foot…

Great views, loads more greenery, peace and quiet away from polluted streets… there are many reasons people choose to leave the pavements behind and run into the hills, or simply along a local footpath. In fact, if you run almost anywhere that’s not on the road or athletics track, you could call yourself a trail runner. But have you thought about your shoes?

For the best experience, lower injury risk, and increased performance, you should consider swapping your regular road runners for their sturdier cousins – trail shoes. No, it’s not just a ploy to get you to add to your running shoe collection; this footwear is designed to deal with everything from divots, loose stones, and steep, rocky paths to slippery, muddy, and uneven tracks. Read on to discover the best trail running shoes for women on the market…

What makes trail shoes different?

There’s more to these shoes than first meets the eye. Grip, protection, fit, and stability are the four main elements that make up a trail running shoe, according to Milly Voice, trail runner, and Salomon ambassador. ‘Trail running shoes have deep lugs [grips] to give you more traction on loose terrain or mud,’ she says. Then there’s often a special layer underfoot (aka a rock plate) made from plastic or carbon fiber, to lessen the impact of sharp rocks, and a reinforced toe area, too.

‘It’s also really important you have a nice, snug fit over your foot,’ says Voice. ‘This helps to keep you nimble on the trail, maintain articulation and get that excellent ground feel.’ Allow about a 1cm gap between your toes and the end of the shoe to help you avoid blisters and black toenails, and try on shoes in the afternoon as your feet swell during the day, which helps mimic what they’ll do on a run. As for stability? ‘Don’t be put off if trail running shoes feel a little weightier than road running shoes,’ adds Voice. ‘This is due to reinforced heels that keep them stable on the ground and reduce the risk of you rolling over on your ankle.’

What’s the best heel drop for trail running shoes?

Heel drop is the difference in height between the back and front of the shoe and is to do with how your foot strikes the ground. Many regular runners strike the ground with their heel first, so they should have a bigger heel drop (more than 6mm). More experienced runners, or those who land further forward on their foot, may prefer a smaller drop.

Choosing the right trail shoes to suit your runs

  • Mainly hard-packed trails? Go for a more flexible, lighter-weight shoe with shorter, more closely spaced lugs (2-4mm).
  • Lots of rocky surfaces? A stiffer outsole with more stability, plus rock plates underfoot, toe guards, and rugged uppers are a must. Look for ‘sticky’ rubber outsoles to aid grip.
  • Puddles and streams? Choose lighter-weight, well-ventilated shoes over waterproofing to allow the water to drain out and help keep your feet cool.
  • Very uneven terrain? A well-supported instep and upper will help keep you stable and balanced.
  • Mainly muddy trails? You’ll need deep (5-7mm), widely spaced lugs to stop mud from getting trapped in the treads.
  • Running long distances? Look for good stability and plenty of cushioning.
  • A mix of tarmac and off-road? Hybrid shoes are softer and more flexible than trail shoes but have better grips than road shoes.

5 best trail running shoes for women

Best trail running shoes for beginners: Salomon Sense Ride 4 (£110)

A slightly softer shoe that would work well for trail running newbies, the Sense Ride 4s are thicker than many others underfoot (a heel-stack height of 32mm and forefoot of 24mm), and have a generous 8mm heel drop. They weigh 250g and feature updated Optivibe cushioning to dampen vibration and propel you forwards.

The Endo Fit layer over your foot provides a secure fit, then there’s a tough mesh SensiFit outer. The Profeel film underneath helps protect your feet from sharp objects, while rubber Contragrip outsoles with 4mm lugs deal well with all kinds of surfaces. These are super comfy but a little less supportive than some, and the Quicklaces are a bit tricky to tuck away.

Best trail running shoes for grip: Saucony Women’s Peregrine 11 (£115)

Experienced all-rounders who want a powerful shoe that can cope with everything from rocks to mud should try this one. Born 10 years ago, it has had several tweaks along the way and this version sports a new rock plate for underfoot protection, plus it’s more breathable. The PWRRUN cushioning is quite firm and responsive, while the flexible and durable FORM FIT upper cradles your foot comfortably. The shoes have a minimal 4mm drop but thick soles (27mm at the back and 23mm at the front) and they weigh 270g.

If the grip is a priority, the slightly tacky 5mm PWRTRAC rubber lugs are great for grassy, muddy terrain. These have a supportive feel but are a tad chunkier and heavier than some. I’d pick these to help me keep my form on long, challenging runs.

Best hybrid running shoes: Inov8 Parkclaw 260 Knit Women’s (£125)

With these hybrids’ 8mm drop, they’re good for most regular runners. The 4mm lug depth is as deep as many trail shoes, but the lugs are smaller, softer, and more closely packed. This makes on-road running or running on hard-packed summer trails, comfortable, too.

There’s a new BOOMERANG footbed, with long-lasting foam that harnesses your energy and gives it back. Plus, there’s a Powerflow+ midsole to boost this some more. They’re light, at 220g, and you get a really good feel for the ground as you’re quite close to it (it drops from a 20mm heel to a 12mm forefoot). There’s not much arch support, but a really roomy toe box, helping give these a more minimalist, natural feel.

Best trail running shoes for long distances: The North Face Women’s Flight Series VECTOR Shoes (£180)

Wow! You can really feel the curved ‘rocker sole that’s part of the VECTOR, which also includes a high-tech, carbon-fiber plate that sits underfoot to give better energy return, protect your foot from sharp objects, and offer lateral support. Designed for long distances, these 255g shoes feel firm but very well cushioned. The seamless, sock-like upper is super comfy and helps seal out debris.

It incorporates a Kevlar and polyamide Matryx panel to boost lateral support. The 3.5mm lugs handle varied summer terrain comfortably. A 6mm heel drop (25mm to 19mm) should work for most people. As these sit quite high off the ground under the rocker, I felt a little wobbly laterally in them at first.

Best trail running shoes for speed: Hoka One One Zinal (£140)

These brand new shoes are built for speed! At just 200g (lighter than Hoka’s Torrent 2s and Speedgoat 4s), these keep your feet close to the ground (21mm heel to a 17mm forefoot) for excellent control and have just a 4mm drop. All this confirms that these are best for more experienced runners with confidence in their foot placement and less call for lots of cushioning.

The lightweight mesh upper is made from recycled yarn and the gusseted tongue will help keep dirt and debris out. Database Vibram Megagrip (thinner and lighter but just as grippy as usual) and the deep, 4mm lugs on the soles will help keep you upright.
