Tayshia Adams Picked The Right Man

Imagine being secluded with a handful of handsome men for a few weeks, and your only focus is finding out who you match with the best. Sounds like a pretty good life- but on this season of ABC’s “The Bachelorette,” Tayshia Adams had to make some tough decisions that would leave a lasting impression on her life.

In the end, it seemed (at least to the viewers of the show) that Tayshia picked the right man. And in my opinion, I think she did! Watching the finale and seeing Zac Clark get down on one knee and propose to Tayshia was almost like watching the end of a Disney princess movie. Romantic and magical, the proposal was truly fairytale-like.

Some viewers may have been upset with the choice Tayshia made, but I think she listened to her heart and picked a great guy. Here’s why, in my opinion, Tayshia and Zac make a great Mr. and Mrs. Clark:

1. They have both been through a divorce.

Usually, when people come on “The Bachelor” or “The Bachelorette” and they have already been through a divorce, it can sometimes be viewed as a red flag, depending on who the person is. But this wasn’t the case for Tayshia, since she went through one herself. Zac and Tayshia both knew how hard it was for a marriage to work, and even though Tayshia got nervous about the past repeating itself, she understood that Zac is not her ex-husband. They both came onto this show for a second chance at finding love- and they both found it! The second time’s the charm, right?

2. Zac wasn’t hung up on Clare.

In my opinion, there were a lot of guys that couldn’t give Tayshia their all because they fell for Clare when she was the star of the show. And I don’t blame them. A lot of them opened up to Clare when she asked them to and started to fall in love with her, and it isn’t easy to fall out of love with someone. But Zac didn’t get caught up in the Clare and Dale drama. When Tayshia came on, he was all about her, and I think that really helped Tayshia in her decision-making.

3. Zac was confident in his relationship with Tayshia.

If there was one word that described Zac Clark in the last episode it would be “sweet-talker.” That man had a way with words. He said all the right things at the right time, and this may have influenced Tayshia and her opinions of him. Zac wanted to make sure Tayshia knew what his feelings were for her, and there was no holding back when he was talking to her. Which is what Tayshia wanted. She wanted someone who would be vulnerable with her and express their feelings, and Zac definitely checked those boxes.

Though similar pasts and allowing themselves to open up to each other, Zac and Tayshia found authentic love. Congrats to the happy couple, I hope they found everything they are looking for!

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
Want create site? Find Free WordPress Themes and plugins.

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.
