Surprising Things You’re Doing to Mess up Your Sleep

Mattress Firm Sleep habits

This post is sponsored by Mattress Firm. As always, all opinions are my own. We all know the common culprits for poor sleep habits, like scrolling your smartphone close to bedtime, or slamming too much caffeine to beat the afternoon slump (it’ll still be coursing through your veins hours later). But did you know that something as seemingly benign as a cozy blanket can also throw off your internal clock? Lately I’ve been feeling the effects of not-enough shut-eye. I’ve…

Mindful at Work with Wacom

Wacom Mindful moments

This blog post is sponsored by Wacom. As always, all opinions are my own. Sometimes, you just need to step out of your own monotony to reunite with your own creativity. At least that’s what I was hoping, since last week felt so burnt out that I couldn’t really function at work. I was coming off weeks of travel, and tons of deadlines, and then… quiet.

The Kitchen Gadget That’s Giving My Health a Reboot This Month

Juicero Fresh Pressed Juice at home

Sometimes, a little refresh is necessary… and a company that helps people sip on delicious, nutrient-packed juice pressed from fruits and veggies understands that. Just about a year after it debuted to lots of wellness-tech buzz, Juicero—often referred to as the “Keurig of cold-pressed juice” thanks to its innvoative, single-serving style—is making some changes. The biggest? Many people balked at the initial $700 price tag (for good reason!), so they’re dropping the price to $399. Not exactly a bargain, but at that price it will…

The workout wear you need to stay fit during the holidays

j. crew hoodie: workout wear

These days, my workout goals are shifting: I’m focused on getting strong, sweating out toxins, breathing deeply and keeping my heart healthy. I’ve been trying some new classes in the city (I’m OBSESSED with Y7’s hip hop yoga classes) and spinning a ton. I’ve also been boxing after shunning it for years— not only is it bringing out all kinds of definition in my arms (score!) but I can feel my brain working hard to make sure my arms are…
