Written by Emily S.
The New York Times recently examined the weight of school children’s backpacks and whether or not it impedes growth and development of the spine and leads to persisting pain in later life. Various studies concluded that anything over 10 to15 percent of the child’s weight is considered too heavy, especially if carried incorrectly, and children can feel significant pain over both the short-term and long-term.

Written by Emily S.
Remember when Jennifer Lawrence fell in front of America as she was walking up to accept her Oscar? Or when Beyonce’s hair got caught in a blowing fan while singing in front of thousands on tour? Embarrassing moments happen to everyone regardless of his or her status, yet the fear of it plays a significant role in our decisions, behaviors, thoughts and emotions.
