As Love Your Body’s tenure comes to an end, we want to leave you with a compilation of feel-good advice, some of which we have shared previously on this blog. These bits of insight are like buckets full of sunshine in my and Lisa Berry’s lives. Lisa and I share them, or variations of them, with each other any time we are having a hard time.

There are few things as comforting to me as a good cup of tea. I like a good cuppa to start my morning, to get me through the work day, and to wind down at night. Having Tarkington Tea at LYB means I have access to delicious blends for every mood. And yet, sometimes I still crave something richer and bolder. Since I can’t drink coffee without getting the jitters (even if it’s dec...

Few things lift my spirit as much as sunshine and fresh, vibrant scents. Whether it’s the crisp smell of early morning air or that of a freshly cut orange, nothing lifts me up quite as powerfully as fragrance. And so, I try to incorporate uplifting scents as much as possible into my daily life.

To have boundaries means to have clear guidelines on what behavior is permissible from the people in our lives so that our interactions with them remain respectful and constructive.

Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, the show that premiered on New Year’s Day on Netflix, has once again put the spotlight on the KonMari method of organizing. This method was famously introduced to the United States in 2014 with Kondo’s book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. It led millions of Americans to take a good look at their belongings, discard what didn’t “spark joy,” and...

Conventional “wisdom” maintains that it’s important to vent in order to keep ourselves from emotionally exploding at a later point. What if I were to tell you that maybe, for greater happiness and clarity of mind, it’s better to just put it in the vault and forget about it?

Let me explain where this is coming from. Back in January, I shared with you what I consider to be one of th...

Few things are as rewarding as a good workout and the mild soreness that follows it the next day. Coupled with the gorgeous activewear we have at LYB, it’s no surprise we adore walking into the studio or the gym to sweat it out. Unfortunately, life often gets in the way. Whether it’s travel, an inflexible work schedule, or sick kids, sometimes there is no way to run out and work...

“Man can alter his life by altering his thinking.” William James

“We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.” Buddha

I could fill pages and pages of quotes from wise men and women on the power of our thoughts, but you get the picture. Most likely, you...

Decadent Hot Cocoa

One quick, surefire way to sink into the warm holiday spirit is to enjoy a cup of hot cocoa by the fireplace. At LYB, we like to do things  a tiny bit different, so while we are all for fast and easy instant mixes, we also are big on healthier, more wholesome alternatives.

This version of hot cocoa is super easy and beyond decadent. It is also 100% keto and vegan...

There is no doubt this is the coziest (cashmere sweaters! pumpkin spice lattes! inviting fireplaces!) of seasons, and also the one with the greatest potential to sucker punch you and land you in bed feeling ill. Because none of us want to feel sick this Thanksgiving week or during the December holidays and parties, I offer you four get well fast tricks.

I can vouch for them becaus...
