Gut Check: 6 non-food ways to get gut healthy

I get excited coming out of the cold seasons into the warm ones for many reasons, and one of them is the availability of local, fresh produce. Going to the farmers market really gets me delighted about food again. And, since I wouldn’t call myself someone who enjoys cooking, it also makes this a more bearable “to do” on my list. Since I am not into cooking, I often get a little lazy…a pizza here, an order of Chinese … Read More

A lack of underwear and other humorous moments.

It’s been a busy few weeks for Third Space as we settle into our new location… and with the hours we’ve been keeping, which we are embarrassed to even publish (so we won’t), it’s been a real trip. We are learning some great lessons along the way, one of the best reminders is how human we are. And, being the consummate professionals we like to think we are (both in wellness and business), we’ve been humbled … Read More

Spring Cleaning – It’s not just for houses!

If you and I have anything in common then it might feel like suddenly amidst the melting snow and bright sunshine there is some hope for energy and an internal sense that things are moving again. I find that during winter time I tend to look around at my home, my laundry pile, my to-do list… I look inward to all of the “I want to’s” and then I peak outside, notice how chilly I … Read More

Podcast – Wellness Unlocked: The 80/20 Rule For Wellness

In this episode we discuss how to discern what wellness practices work for you and in what balance. For example, we think eating well matters a ton, yet so do donuts and cookies! We have to have room for both. Joy and Rachel debate about the importance of flossing your teeth and why you might like to take vitamins and/or probiotics. Sam inspires us to make sure we rest enough within our fitness routine and … Read More

At Third Space Wellness this is one of our guiding principles. In everything we do we are making sure that our commitment to helping people forge relationships that result in a greater sense of having a community is present because it’s our stance that this is key to well being. Community is a popular buzz word and theme right now…Why does it matter and why is it such a popular concept? … Read More

Wellness + Community in a bar?! You bet.

Think a bar, wellness and community don’t go together? Think again. On January 24th, we joined forces with Denizens Brewing Co. in Downtown Silver Spring to host a Community Wellness Open House. We knew it might sound strange to some to host a wellness-themed event at a bar. And on a cold, wet Saturday afternoon too? Forget it. We expected most people would stay at home to avoid the wintry mess outside. What happened instead … Read More

Walking the walk and talking the talk

This year, Rachel and I each came up with a plan to do a daily activity that we could add to our routine. Nothing crazy… Just a little something different added to our daily life. We both felt that if we wanted 2015 to be better and different from 2014 we needed to introduce a change into our behavior – both agreeing that even small changes can have a huge impact. It was no surprise … Read More
