20/05/2022

Making mistakes is an inevitable part of working out at home. Even though gyms are now open, many of us are sticking with our more flexible routine of getting it done in the living room or garden – but unfortunately, this could mean we’re more likely to keep repeating the same home workout errors. So, instead of continuing with bad form and less than helpful habits, get clued up on how to address these issues and work out properly on your own.…

10 Best Foods To Help You Sleep, According To A Dietitian

18/05/2022

A good night’s sleep can change everything. Not only does being well-rested give your brain time to recharge, but it also helps your immune system fight illness, reduces stress, and lowers your risk for serious health problems, like heart disease and diabetes. But if you’re spending more time counting sheep than actually catching Z’s, you’re not alone.

The Major Benefits of BODY GUA SHA

11/05/2022

We’ve been obsessed with the simplicity and therapeutic practice of gua sha for the face for a while now. We love how this calming, ancient routine rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine relieves tension, gives a microburst of circulation to speed healing, and improves lymphatic drainage in the face for an overall more contoured, depuffed, glowing complexion. Just imagine what it can do for the rest of the body. Sophie Lonsinger, the massage therapist and bodyworker behind Conscious Living by Sophie, was top of mind…

Are These WORKOUT MYTHS Fact or Fiction?

10/05/2022

We’re not saying that those viral “coregasm” TikToks made us more motivated to hit the gym … but we’re not not saying that, either. This amplified interest in working out made us realize that we have questions. Like, is being sore a legitimate reason to skip the gym? Is working out two days in a row a bad idea? Or are we making excuses because we’d rather go to happy hour and flirt with the hot, emotionally unavailable bartender? Turns out, these…

Are you GASLIGHTING YOURSELF?

25/04/2022

You feel unseen, unheard, and start to believe that you’re crazy, despite your best instincts, understanding, and personal experience. What’s even more dangerous? Doing it to yourself. Leaning into your feelings and emotions isn’t easy, but being honest with yourself is a crucial start to understanding boundaries, self-love, and setting yourself up for growth. Taking…

23/04/2022

Feelings of stress or anxiety, boredom, loneliness, lack of self-confidence, and signs of depression can lead us to fill that space—that feeling of lacking—with food. The problem is that it’s not a healthy way to fuel ourselves and often leaves us feeling ashamed or disappointed with ourselves afterward. Ah, the cruel cycle continues. Going out to eat with friends at an amazing new restaurant, celebrating, or accidentally eating more…

My book, Happy Not Perfect, explores the happiness conundrum in detail. Over the past few years on the Not Perfect Podcast, I have asked every guest the question, “How do you define happiness?” I’ve had thought leaders, scientists, entrepreneurs, and creatives…
