From digestion to energy to brain power to just feeling good, water is where it’s at when it comes to being healthy and feeling good. So, if we all know it’s good for us and we want to drink more water, then why do so many of us not get enough of it each day? Why is it that most of us struggle with staying hydrated? In…

As a mom of one-year-old twins and a five-year-old, I know what it’s like to be tired. So, so, tired. Add to that the stress of a pandemic and that state of all the things in the world, and, welp, there are a lot of things to keep us up at night. Right? So, when DayAfterInsomnia wanted to know if I’d be willing to take a sleep challenge — and one that focused not just on quantity and…

But as a mom to three girls now, finding the time and quiet to do so is, well, not exactly the easiest. Not to mention that when I do actually get the chance to sit down and meditate, my mind is generally swirling with the 100 other things I “could” and even believe I “should” be doing. (Yes, I’m working on that.) And I know for all of…

They’re fun, filling, and feel way more like a meal (or even a dessert) because you eat them with a spoon. In a bowl! I know, that’s pretty Captain Obvious, but, the smoothie bowl has been a fun new addition to my healthy meal and snack rotation — especially when I need a little something post-workout. With a simple base of milk or milk alternative (I went with plain almond milk) plus a frozen…

Some choices I make could potentially be classified as a bit questionable, like the decision to train for a half marathon PR through the heat of summer … in Florida. (And yes, 100% humidity is every bit as uncomfortable to run in as it sounds.) That choice leads to lots of other decisions, like swapping Friday happy hours for early Saturday morning runs — something you may or may not find debatable, depending on your feelings about drinks with friends and early alarms. I know it might not…

There’s nothing more enjoyable than spending an afternoon outside with family and friends while cooking a perfect meal on your grill. To top it off, grilled meat is tasty, a total crowd-pleaser, and high in protein. Whether you’re cooking on the fly, for a big group of friends, or just having a simple, intimate dinner with your family, the grill you own has a huge impact on how much you enjoy the experience. How can you choose the appropriate grill for your lifestyle? Here are…

After all, what you eat helps support every amazing thing your body is doing — not to mention that your nutritional needs change once you’re growing a human in your belly. So, seeing that this time I’m carrying twins — oh, man — I am super aware that my nutrition needs to be top-notch right now. And! Nutrition is not only important during pregnancy. Recovering from childbirth and the physical demands of breastfeeding are no joke — and…

We recently partnered with Easy Spirit (who has some wicked cute and comfy shoes that were made to move in — have you seen the site lately?!) for its #MoveFor campaign. Not only are we loving the shoes (see below), but we’re also loving how they’re helping us better align with the reasons why we move — and how we make both self-care a top priority (even though we have totally different reasons and ways of going about it!).   Jenn’s #MoveFor Self-Care Tips To put it simply, I…

After all, if sitting is the new sugar (which, of course, is the new smoking), then those of us who crave movement and seek out new ways to challenge our bodies are really ahead of the game. But lots of movement — especially the type that so many of us love because it really pushes our limits and helps us become stronger, both physically and mentally — often leads…

Now, I am 100 percent in favor of doing one’s own thing when it comes to body hair — I mean, you wanna grow it out? Braid it? Watch it flow in the breeze? You do you, boo! via GIPHY My personal preference, though, is to try to keep my legs pretty hair-free. It’s simply what I’m used to — plus, it’s good for swimming.…
