This year, I'm dedicating my wellness project to the art of healthy hedonism--to doing right by my body, without giving up my life. Figuring out your non-negotiables for pleasure is just as important as going through the pain of creating a new "healthy" habit.
YBeBendy tackles the question: Is it safe to practice yoga after exposure to extreme cold? When I began research on this topic, I was struck silent...
Feeling caged in, stagnant, stuck in a certain place in your life (whether geographically or metaphorically)? Get out. Find different scenery. Change your environment. Transform your state. Smell different air. Tickle your taste buds a different color. Pop in a new soundtrack.
If you're the type spending hours at the gym -- chest fly, back row, biceps curl, repeat -- it's time to reconsider your routine. Find out how to get leaner and work out less (all without a trainer).
My 30s hit me a couple of years ago, and my metabolism went down the shi*ter. I miss the days when I could work out a reasonable, non-obsessive amount...
Often, we're most critical with the ones with love most. We're extra sensitive to certain characteristics, express annoyance toward particular hab...
Diet is a good word. Diet only means the way you eat. If you eat donuts all day, you have a diet of donuts. If you eat healthy, you have a healthy diet. Diet does not mean deprivation or starvation, it means choosing food items.
Let's address a common myth about exercise (physical activity) and weight loss. Myth: Just be more physically active, exercise a great deal, and you...
Good posture, exercise, and a healthy lifestyle -- believe it or not, all of these things are important factors in avoiding back pain. It can be difficult to make the changes you need to get healthy, but don't worry, I've got your back!
2014 is coming to a close, so inevitably the chatter of New Year's resolutions is getting louder. It's great to start goal setting and structuring a p...
From my meditation teacher/practitioner perspective, I see ALL of these aspects as incredibly good, good, good and believe that meditation, dear millennials, is not only something that gels with what you already got goin' on... but it can help you navigate some of your biggest challenges.
By now most of us have realized and put into practice that saving and investing money is vital to achieving financial fitness; so then, what's the smartest way to spend the money you choose to spend?
Intuitive eating means learning to eat because you're physically hungry, not emotionally hungry because you are tired, bored, angry, depressed, or wanting connection. It's a powerful reworking of your relationship to weight loss, your body, how you deal with your emotions, as well as your relationship with food and eating.
Don't get me wrong, it is a choice. And not an easy one. But when you accept your body, really truly accept yourself where you are now, your whole world will change. Because how you feel on the inside affects everything else in your life. And you deserve a life where you feel good, both inside and out.
I think the answer is, love yourself because you are you. Be confident in yourself because you are you. Don't let the size you are dictate how you feel about yourself or how much confidence you have.
Green beauty is so much fun! It allows us to play, create, celebrate & express ourselves in so many powerful ways.
I've known smart women who've gone to extremes to hide the fact that they have to work for their figure. I've been one of them. I once got out of sharing bread pudding on a date by saying that the sight of it made me sad because it was served at my grandpa's shiva.

Here's what I say about it: You don't have to like your body fat, but if you do in fact have it (and we all do), wouldn't it make more sense to accept it for what it is and then go change it, rather than hating on it while it's there? After all it's just fat, right?
It's a MIRACLE... Last Thursday I returned from the doctor's and I was the happiest girl alive, ready to announce to the world that I'm five MONTHS P...
