Health Myths that People Still Believe

I am so frustrated. I am a health conscious person and I know a lot about living a healthy lifestyle. I know what foods to put into my body to make me feel the best, the bare minimum amount of sleep I need to function (I refuse to get less!), and how much I need to move around each day not to feel lethargic. And I know I’m lucky to know all that I do about health. I’ve done research, taken classes, and figured things out through trial and error. But a lot of people get their health advice from…

Big Sister Advice: Menstrual Cups & What You Need to Know

Periods. Periods. Periods. There. Now that the initial awkwardness is out of the way and everything is out in the air I want to talk to you all about something that’s actually really important.

My life has definitely taken an unexpected (and exciting!) turn, and every post idea I’ve brainstormed up as of late has something to do with the move. Today I’ve teamed up with Dove to talk about 6 things nobody warned me about before moving to the city. I was told all about spotting Craigslist scams and finding the best food (there are vegetarian restaurants as far as the eye can see, y’all!), but there were a lot of important things…

Get Fit for Spring from Home!

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Les Mills. The opinions and text are all mine. I’m all about promoting healthy living for a happy life. I grew up very active – I ran varsity cross country and track through high school and have spent every summer of my life on the river swimming, skiing, and kneeboarding. After going away to college I fell out of my fitness routine for a few months, and while I didn’t gain the dreaded freshman fifteen, I did lose the muscle tone I had spent years developing. Fast forward to now,…
