The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
Because you can’t feel it, you don’t know it’s happening inside of you, and you usually don’t know you have it until you have a fairly minor fall or even just a mistep and you end up breaking a bone - which completely sidelines you. The truth is that your bones may be more fragile than you think.
This silent disease is Osteoporosis, and you may already have it or be on the path to it.
But there are some tangible steps you can take now to build strong, dense bones - preventing osteoporosis from ever happening and even stopping its progression as you age.
Imagine you go to the beach with your family for vacation. The whole crew is finally together!
On the second night, you all have reservations at a nice restaurant on the waterfront. And as you’re walking in from the parking lot, you catch your toe on the curb and lose your balance. You go down. You try to catch yourself, but you land on your side and immediately feel intensely sharp pains in your hip and in your wrist.
It hurts so bad, you think you broke something. The ambulance gets called, it’s a whole scene. You spend the whole evening in the Emergency Room, and lo and behold, you fractured your pelvis and broke your wrist.
But that’s not all. They tell you that you have osteoporosis.
You’re embarrassed. Your vacation is ruined.
And now you’re dealing with not just broken bones that might take two months to heal, but the reality that you have weak bones and it could happen again.
You don’t want to feel fragile. You don’t want to feel like you could break at any moment.
But the scariest thing is that you didn’t know about it, AND there were lots of things you could have done to prevent your bones from becoming so fragile.
As women, our bones are such an afterthought. We can’t see them like we can our muscles and skin and fat and hair. And honestly, most of our self-care is directed at fat, skin and hair. Right?
But in that moment when you’re dealing with a fracture because of brittle bones, you will have wished that you did everything possible to make your bones dense and strong.
The good news is I’m going to teach you what those things are, AND these tips can actually prevent more bone loss from happening.
I do NOT want you to think of Osteoporosis as just an old lady disease, because if you think like that you probably won’t do much about it right now, especially if it’s not quite an issue for you yet.
Just like muscle loss, or sarcopenia, as you age, bone loss is a gradual thing that happens over years - and what you do RIGHT NOW…the choices you make about your body this week, this month or this year will impact your body and bones for many years to come.
Also, please know that it’s NOT too late to improve your bone density. Everything I’m going to mention is going to help the density of your bones, no matter how old you are… so start this now.
Nutrition: Eating the “Standard American Diet” that’s high in processed sugars, meats and carbohydrates and drinking excessive alcohol puts you at a much greater risk for low bone density. So, if this is you, you need to get your nutrition in check.
Fitness: Being sedentary is a surefire way to get osteoporosis. Consistently placing your bones under a little bit of stress makes them stronger and more dense.
The last thing I want to touch on is removing Stressors: Living a stressful life can create overactive adrenals and chronic inflammation in the body, which dramatically impacts your bone health.
If you follow these steps, your bones will thank you. You can prevent more bone loss from happening.
But if you don’t do these things now, you might find yourself in that emergency situation, with broken bones that came out of nowhere. Remember, it’s called the Silent Disease for a reason.
Ok, to wrap up I always like to leave you with one simple action step that you can put into place TODAY.
Alright now listen, if you have a specific question around osteoporosis that I didn’t address, and I’ve already gotten a few so I know you have them, I still want to help you. Can you go to vigeofit.com/ask and send your question to me? That way I can specifically address it in another podcast episode or on an upcoming Ask Megan segment.
