Best Place to Prevent Heart Failure: The Hive

Did you know the cardiovascular system of a person in distress looks identical to that of a lifelong smoker? Considering that it’s normal to lead a hectic life, we should be more stressed about our stress! While there are many avenues for slowing down and smelling the roses, Troy Bronsink has set out to make it a community affair by founding The Hive, a social nonprofit seeking to “develop creative, compassionate and mindfully engaged citizens in the Cincinnati region” through classes like Reclaiming Your Voice: Yoga, Mediation, and Writing and Creating a Trauma-Informed Classroom. The Hive also offers retreats, events and personal sessions in their efforts to protect the pleasures in life. The Hive, 1662 Blue Rock St., Northside,
