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...

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...

During a recent LYB staff meeting, a colleague asked me what I make for dinner on the days I am too tired to cook something elaborate. I immediately pictured those days following sleepless nights when I dream of getting home, changing into loungewear and just resting. I also thought of the nights when I have cooked my kids’ favorite meal and have no desire to eat it myself. I don...

It’s the New Year, and it’s freezing cold outside! What’s a girl to do while stuck at home and dreaming of all things fresh? Here are four quick and easy ways to purify your home so that it feels extra inviting.

1) Clean your shower head

If you have a shower head you can easily detach, wipe down, disinfect and reattach, by all means take that route. Otherwise, follow these four sup...

Feeding my children is becoming more challenging by the day. My 3 year old is becoming more particular in his tastes. My one-year old will only eat what's on our plates and she insists on feeding herself. Since she only recently got her third and fourth teeth, this means the food has to be relatively mushy and she has to be able to eat it with her fingers or sip it in a little cu...

Acquiring a zero-waste mentality — my first step towards acquiring a zero-waste lifestyle — has resulted in some incredible insights. One of the biggest is that I have lived my whole life believing a horribly crippling lie that goes like this: “I couldn’t possibly make/do that myself.”

My husband tells me not to be too hard on myself. As a society, we have lived thousands of years...

How do you teach a toddler empathy, mindfulness and the power of visualization?

I am still trying to figure it out since it’s not always easy to model this type of behavior. To begin with, so much of it is internal. I may be able to show them empathy through my actions towards them, but how do I show my kids that I am practicing mindfulness or visualizing? Also, I so often I wish...

As with everything else we do at Love Your Body, we believe spring cleaning and decluttering should be approached with simplicity. So, instead of telling you to spend a day, a weekend or a whole week devoted to the task, we suggest this process should simply be a mindset you get into for a determined amount of time, say, the rest of March or the whole month of April. To be in spr...

The holidays are finally over! I would be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy the season, but I also feel like I have finally re-emerged from an alternative universe. It’s like I went down the rabbit hole and enjoyed weeks of twinkle lights, decadent meals, fun parties, beautiful trinkets, and I am finally back home after the magical journey.  

And now that I am back, I am most excited...

Most of us are heading into a 3-day weekend that will quite possibly be filled with houseguests. When I have a house full of family, I always want to make something special for breakfast but can rarely find the time to get things prepared before everyone has given in to hunger. Now, I have baked oatmeal!

I came across a recipe by Anna Stockwell at Epicurious that is super easy and...
