    We All Have a Sedentary Friend - How to Get Them More Active

    We All Have a Sedentary Friend - How to Get Them More Active

    You love spending time with your friends. You share a lot of the same interests, have the same sense of humor, and you just “get” each other. It can be tough, though, when one of your closest friends doesn’t take interest in an active lifestyle. While you want to share jokes and talk about what’s going on in the world as you hit the trails or go rock climbing, your friend just wants to sit on the couch and vape. Which is cool… sometimes. But, what about one of those days when you’re itching to get outdoors and be active? How can you get your sedentary friend up off the couch and into action? Here are a few tips for helping your friend enjoy some new activities.

    Start Small

    Your motto may be “Go Big or Go Home,” but that tactic might not fly with a friend who isn’t used to being as active as you. Pushing your friend to do something too big or too extreme right off the bat could cause them to shut down completely and close their mind to trying new things in the future. Instead of an all-day hiking excursion up a mountain, ask your friend to take a walk with you on a beautiful (and easy) park trail through the trees. Make things a little more interesting by downloading an app that leads you to geocaches. Make it fun so that your friend forgets that he or she is even getting exercise.

    Take a Lesson 

    One of the reasons your sedentary friend might avoid doing something active with you is that they feel intimidated by your experience. They don’t want to look stupid trying something new in front of their expert friend, so they just end up avoiding it altogether. You can get over this hurdle by offering to take a lesson or a class on how to do an activity or sport that you’ve never tried before. Let your friend pick what they’d like to learn and make a pact to do it together. You can both laugh at each other (and yourselves) as you try to figure out what you’re doing - as a team.

    Get Touristy

    Tons of people come to Colorado every year. Why? Because it provides the perfect setting for enjoying a huge number of outdoor sports. Most of the tourists to our area have never tried some of the adventurous activities that they embark upon, but they have a lot of fun giving it a try! Have a “staycation” with your friend where you agree to check out some of the hottest tourist attractions and activities around your area. In this “vacation mode,” you’ll find it a lot easier to get in the spirit of hopping into a whitewater raft or hitting the slopes.

    Stay Positive

    Don’t ever be pushy or judgmental with a sedentary friend. It’s your job to build up your friend and encourage them with a positive attitude as you work on getting them into a more active frame of mind.

    Vape It Up

    You already know that your friend enjoys hanging out on the couch, playing video games, and vaping, so why wouldn’t they enjoy vaping with you just about anywhere? Hooking your friend up with the opportunity to vape while getting active with you in the great outdoors will provide them with just one more reason why they should give an active lifestyle a try.

    Who says you have to choose between an active lifestyle and vaping? Vaprwear allows you and your friends to enjoy the best of both worlds. Hit us up to learn more about our awesome vaping-integrated products today.

    5 Reasons to Ditch Your Cigarette for a Vape Pen

    5 Reasons to Ditch Your Cigarette for a Vape Pen

    Just a few short years ago, it was rare to see someone with a vape pen. Spotting one out in the public was like seeing a unicorn. Many people didn't even know exactly what they were. 

    Times have certainly changed, though. Vape pens have become more commonplace and identifiable. They've also been shown to be a great alternative to traditional cigarettes and smoking options. Let's explore five reasons why you should ditch your cigarette for a vape pen.

    Better Health

    Even the most ardent smoker will tell you that smoking cigarettes are bad for you. Extremely bad. Why else would they be nicknamed cancer sticks? Between cancer, lung problems, skin issues, and the destruction of teeth, smoking cigarettes is both damaging and life-threatening. While we don't have much information on the effects of long-term vaping, the use of smokeless tobacco has already told us most of what we need to know. Vaping options don't utilize smoke, nor do they include nearly as many contaminants as cigarettes. So even though vaping might not be 100% safe, it is clearly a much healthier activity than smoking traditional cigarettes.

    Less Addiction

    It's no secret that cigarettes are highly addictive. More specifically, the nicotine found in cigarettes can cause addiction for both your body and your mind. In fact, tobacco manufacturers have been the subject of many lawsuits, resulting in enormous loss of money and reputation, for the lies, they spread about the addictive qualities (or lack thereof) of their products. Vaping has shown to be much less addictive than cigarettes. In fact, many cigarette smokers who have switched to the use of vape pens have reported that vaping has worked as a way to alleviate their need for smoking tobacco.

    Multiple Flavors

    Traditional cigarettes simply don't taste good. In fact, many people would say that they taste absolutely terrible. While there are certain flavors available in the world of cigarettes, these don't compare to how many options you have when it comes to the flavors available when vaping. In many cases, cigarette smokers have even switched over to vaping and nothing else because when they momentarily returned to cigarettes, they realized just how bad they really taste.

    Improved Aesthetics

    Not only do cigarettes taste terrible, but they're not very attractive. We would even venture to say that they are downright ugly (unless Clint Eastwood is smoking one in a movie - that’s okay). Seeing a man or woman with a cigarette hanging out of their mouth is an instant turn-off for many people. Vape pens don't have that same effect. In fact, the design of many vape pens is attractive to people because they basically look like a piece of advanced technology. We don't want to say that looks mean everything, but in this regard, they definitely count for something.

    More Accepted

    There is a sort of anti-cigarette mentality in this country. Even as millions of people use cigarettes on a daily basis, many citizens and businesses are shying away from them. While it's not right to shun cigarette smokers, the overall negative attitude towards cigarettes, second-hand smoke, and health issues caused by smoking has led to restrictions in bars and other public places. Vaping doesn't suffer from these issues. Even non-smokers don't seem to mind them nearly as much because they're not as intrusive.

    Vaprwear promotes two primary lifestyles: outdoor activities and vaping. What we really love is to see people mix the two together. Several of our products use a revolutionary integrated vaping system that is perfect for both outdoor and indoor activities. If you'd like to learn more, reach out to our professional staff today.

    Too Cold to Hit the Slopes? Then, Hit the Gym Instead!

    Too Cold to Hit the Slopes? Then, Hit the Gym Instead!

    Love it or hate it, cold weather continues to prevail across the country. In recent weeks, we've covered topics to help you stay warm outside, how to find the best winter gear, and ways to vape during the colder months. But, what if you've decided that it's simply too cold to go outside, so your preference is to remain indoors and enjoy the comforts of your home's heating equipment? 

    There's nothing wrong with that, but in order to be healthy and active, you need to be doing something that allows you to move around rather than being sedentary by sitting around and watching TV all day. And what better way to get as much as you can from remaining indoors than hitting the gym? By starting a new workout regimen, here are the benefits you can experience: 

    You'll Lose or Control Your Weight 

    The number one reason why people begin a workout regimen is to lose weight. This is sometimes done to simply look better - a slimmer waist, thinner legs, etc. - but losing weight also has countless health benefits that will keep you living longer and better. And if you're already happy with your weight, then working out will help you maintain it. When it comes to losing or controlling your weight, hitting the gym is absolutely necessary. 

    You'll Feel Stronger 

    In addition to the weight you can expect to lose, hitting the gym will make you feel stronger because your muscles are being engaged more often and with more resistance than they're accustomed to. This added strength can be felt all over your body, especially if you start off by working on your "core" and then focus on specific areas of your body. Don't worry - you don't have to be a full-on bodybuilder to get this benefit. 

    You'll Be More Confident 

    If you've never worked out before, then it's impossible to understand the level of confidence that you achieve once you begin getting into shape. Your personal and professional lives are likely to benefit greatly from the added confidence that you feel, whether it's due to a loss of weight, additional strength, or a combination of the two. So, if you're looking for a jolt of confidence in your next business meeting or attempting to work up the courage for a big date, working out will help.

    You'll Be Happier 

    When you work out, your brain releases endorphins, which give us a feeling of happiness and euphoria. If you're already a generally happy person, then you'll reach new heights that you might not have considered before. Working out has also been shown to help people who suffer from depression or anxiety. In fact, many sufferers of depression hit the gym in lieu of popping anti-depressant pills. 

    You'll Feel Less Stress 

    The effect of stress on our bodies can be absolutely devastating. Stress not only hurts our mental state, but can negatively impact our physical body as well. Hitting the gym acts as a fantastic "stress reliever'' that will help you calm down over a stressful situation. This is due, in part, by the release of a chemical called norepinephrine, which helps moderate our brain's response to stress.

    You'll Prevent Cognitive Decline Aging is a fact of life and, unfortunately, our brains begin to degenerate in our later years. For many people, this leads to nothing more than feeling a little "hazy" at times, but degenerative diseases like Alzheimer's are devastating for millions of people. While working out isn't a cure for severe problems, it will boost chemicals in the brain that curtail degeneration of the hippocampus, which is needed for memory and learning. 

    Vaprwear promotes an active, engaging lifestyle. We also promote an awesome clothing line with an integrated vapor delivery system that allows you to enjoy two great activities at once. If you have any questions about our wearable products, be sure to reach out and ask!
