Getting back into Yoga

Hello! I would like to get back into Yoga. I used to go to classes - but I'd prefer a really well done home-video solution. Is there anything that's just like going to classes, but in the on-demand video format? Ideally free. Thanks! [more inside]

Discussion-based Podcasts

It finally dawned on me that the common thread among podcasts I've enjoyed is that they're people talking to each other and not to the listener. Unfortunately this does not seem to be the direction the medium has taken, so I come looking for recommendations. I'm fairly agnostic as to subject. I would like podcasts that are either regularly recorded or have extensive back catalogues. Examples and non-examples inside. [more inside]

How can I guarantee my evening ritual will happen?

I have a form of PTSD that screws my sleep. If I follow a fairly strict evening routine, it activates my parasympathetic nervous system and makes a good sleep highly likely. The trouble is, I find it hard to be consistent every single night. Does anyone have any tips/books/practices for sticking to some fixed actions regardless of whether or not I feel like it?

Searching for the pillow of my dreams

I'm a flail-y sleeper: I usually begin on my back and wake up on my side, though sometimes on my stomach and/or sideways. What's the current best pillow for a sleeper like me. It also needs to help with neck pain and be cooling (or at least not something that will make me sweaty). [more inside]

Help me explain why cats are awesome

My friend and soon-to-be roommate is indifferent to cats. I have every plan to adopt a cat, and while he is fine with that and not objecting, it would be nice if I could get him at least kinda excited about having a cat. Help me open his mind (and heart) to the awesomeness of kitties! [more inside]

Can you help us prevent our dog from growing to hate her crate?

We adopted an almost 4-year-old retired greyhound about two months ago. She was not fostered, so she had never lived in a house before - always in kennels on the track or a dog boarding place that our rescue group works with. We've crated her since day one but she's getting more and more stubborn about not wanting to go in the crate when we leave. [more inside]

Social support for elderly

My mother would benefit from a support group. Do you know any Facebook groups for the elderly or free telephonic support groups that don't involve residency requirements? She needs more than nostalgic exchanges of pop culture references and grandbaby pictures. [more inside]

Options for getting a bachelors' degree as an English speaker in Paris

I'm a British citizen, living in the UK, but quite likely moving to Paris at the end of this year for my partner's new job. We have a young child, and we are planning that for the first year of our stay, I would be a stay-at-home parent. Possibly longer than that, though I'm keen to learn French and get a job after that year. I'd like to get suggestions for the best way to study for a bachelor's degree while we are in France.
