We naturally lose muscle mass as we get older. This process starts around the age of 36, and by the time we are 80 we've lost about 50% of our muscle mass. Long periods of inactivity can also cause us to lose a greater amount of muscle mass than we might normally. This has been the case during the COVID-19 pandemic, as many of us were less able to exercise as much as we use to do.

The nature of a small business means it cannot be all things to all people. If you are a jack-of-all trades, then chances are you are the master of none. The strength of a successful small business is to be true to who you are, what you do, and why you do it.
Jeff Freeman had an epiphany. After 15 years at Gerber Legendary Blades, including 11 years as the lead designer, he was ready to leave the city. The job was great, but the rat race of urban living—the traffic, the commute, the noise, all the people—had piled up. He and his wife Kathleen bought a 6.5-acre tract 100 miles south of Portland, made the move, and soon Freeman, an engineer by training, was looking for a new line of work.

After navigating a pandemic for a year-and-a-half, I realize that I will never fully go back to normal. I don’t want to. I never want to go back to my pre-pandemic insecurities: feeling like I have to make the part of myself that’s a parent or spouse small in order to be taken seriously as a woman artist. I never want to tie my worth to how many grants or opportunities I receive. I never want to feel pressured to have to see the “It” choreographer’s show, or like my movement style needs to reflect a popular aesthetic. During lockdown, I experienced life removed from these pressures. I saw how my typical breakneck pace of life is not conducive for thriving. Making more time for rest, for unscheduled time—time to breathe—these are all things I want moving forward.

Many of us have a constant flow of internal dialogue keeping us company. We’re replaying conversations, thinking about things we wish we had said, engaging in both negative and positive self-talk, trying to remember items on a to-do list, or pondering our next snack or Netflix choice. But some of us articulate that internal dialogue on the outside of our bodies: we talk to ourselves.
When our oldest daughter turned four, we figured we should start trying her out in activities. Our friends with older kids were well into their kids’ sport and artistic paths with multiple practices a week, club tryouts, big stage recitals, and dreams of college scholarship offers stuffing the mailbox.
