If you've ever gone on a diet, read this

If you've ever dieted, you're familiar with the pendulum swing you experience when you're trying to stick to a rigid set of food rules.

7 simple steps to wake up easier in the morning

If you’re anything like me, waking up in the morning is a daily struggle. I press “snooze” every five minutes, sleep through fifty alarms and end up late to everything. Every day I tell myself that I will be better the next day and wake up earlier — all to no avail. So I started changing up my bedtime and morning routine to find something that actually worked.

7 quick and easy ways to look perfectly put together (even on your worst days)

Let's face it. Every woman has a bad hair day every once in a while. And by bad hair day, I mean rocking a messy bun that is too messy, having a stain on your favorite blouse, smudging your lipstick and sneezing 0.5 seconds after applying mascara.

Our minds have evolved to a place where they naturally and biologically seek to judge, assess and compare. That’s all right and good, and serves a really important purpose for keeping us safe and aware. However, not all thoughts we have are truth, but it’s easy for us to accept them as such.
