To March, or not to March

I saw an article yesterday with the headline “Don’t join this year’s Women’s March unless you’re good with anti-Semitism.” I support the self-determination of every woman to weigh in and decide whether the Women’s March is right for them, including the vibrant conversation about the place of Jews in this project.

Self-Defense and Combat Sports for Confidence

Growing up as an athlete, I always believed any frustration could be worked through with sports or physical activity. But when I started to experience big waves of anxiety and panic, it left me vulnerable and not ambitious. I completely forgot the physical ‘language’ I used to speak fluently. Continue reading
