I’ve never considered myself an avid workout person, but the last couple years, I’ve gotten a lot more into my fitness routine. I started by attending various gyms, but I always found them too expensive or far away from my house. Then I switched my focus to classes, which I still absolutely love, but they

You’ve probably heard all about how collagen can help promote hair growth, improve joint health, and prevent skin from aging. This is why powdered collagen and collagen shots (and collagen waters) have exploded in popularity the last few years. Admittedly, I’m a convert. Not for the beauty benefits, although my nails are stronger than ever.
Sleep is one of those things that I want but oftentimes feel like I can’t have — so when I was given the chance to test out Som Sleep, a drink that professional athletes praise for its positive effects on slumber, you bet I took that opportunity in full stride. Regardless of what you might

Like many people, I went through a phase in my life of waking up in the middle of the night and being unable to fall back to sleep. I’d stare at the clock, watching the minutes tick by relentlessly, feeling more and more stressed about how tired and unproductive I’d be the next morning. When
When I started my CrossFit journey to get completely lean and ripped, I was convinced that after six months, I’d have amazing transformation photos to share. I didn’t. By the eighth month, I was definitely gaining weight, and it wasn’t just muscle — I looked and felt puffier, my sports bras and jeans were tighter,
I’m a creature of habit. I like to drink the same 400-calorie smoothie every morning after my morning workout, wear the same three black pairs of leggings, listen to the same pump-up jams that I’ve listened to since high school (what’s up, early-2000s pop/punk).

Sleep is essential, but if you’re a bit confused about how much is enough, you’re not alone. The National Sleep Foundation recommends seven to nine hours a night, while the American Academy of Sleep Medicine simplifies it to a minimum of seven.
