A month ago I had the chance to try out Beachbody On Demand. I plan to continue using this program to train and eat healthy, but I wanted to share with you guys my experience so far. From the tasty recipes to the fun (and sometimes intense) workouts, here’s a breakdown of everything. If you have any questions for me, comment below and I’ll do my best to answer them! Why I chose Beachbody On Demand So, why did I choose Beachbody over other at-home workout programs? For one, Beachbody On Demand has an affordable starter kit with everything I need for the entire year.
Having an anxiety disorder can be characterized as persistently and excessively worrying about things like disasters, money, health, family, work or any situation where you’re expecting the worst case scenario. Dealing with anxiety is something everyone has to do from time to time. Some, like myself, experience this almost daily at a level where it can become unbearable. Many professionals find that most anxiety, whether mild or extreme, comes from uncertainty, the inability to control the unknown, and worrying to prevent negative events from occurring. I can definitely relate to this since most of mine is caused by the inability to control certain situations and
Relaxing at home is essential after a long day of work or stress. Treating yourself to a spa night is therapeutic and healing for your mental health. Whether it’s finding new activities to do or using new products, relaxation calls for indulgence. I have leaned on some of my personal necessities when giving myself some me time. Taking a daily walk and yoga have grounded me, while items like rosewater and face masks help me practice self-love. Here are my 15 “me time must-haves” that I can’t live without when I’m taking it easy at home. 1. Binge-watching TV After a stressful day, binge-watching helps
Working out has become a daily goal of mine. It helps lift my mood while keeping my mind, body, and soul healthy. To fight viruses like Covid-19, staying active can aid our immune systems, and while all gyms and studios are still closed, there are various ways we can still workout. Lifting weights, cardio, HIIT, and going for walks are a great way to clear your head and re-energize from being stuck inside. However, my favorite is yoga, especially because I can do it at home and it requires little equipment. Focusing on breathing, strength, and balance turns a day full of anxiety into a
With face coverings being a part of the “new normal” and so many states requiring that they are worn in public, we created a list of brands stepping up to help fight the spread of COVID-19. The masks on our list are made from a variety of materials and prints, and some are available now and others can be pre-ordered. Here are 25 websites where you can purchase cloth face coverings this summer. *This article contains some affiliate links. Kristie Woszczyna Envelope Facebook Instagram Pinterest Twitter Spotify
One thing that has made this stay at home order bearable is continuing my workout regimen. Although switching from the gym to working out inside my apartment (here’s the equipment I purchased back in March), has taken some getting used to, it has become something that I look forward to doing. I’ve also noticed a shift in my summer shopping habits. Usually, I’d be browsing for sundresses and sandals, but my attention has been focused more on athleisure and lounge attire. I think having proper and stylish workout wear is so helpful in motivating me to run and lift. Here are four of my favorite
There’s no doubt this is a challenging time and self-quarantining shouldn’t add to the stress. Whether you’re staying inside with your significant other, multiple family members, or you’re solo—here are 45 things you can do to make the most out of it. Taking A Moment For Yourself Keep a quarantine diary. Jotting down your thoughts can help relieve stress, and years from now it will make an excellent read. You can also use the time to reflect on your favorite childhood memories and write about those. Set aside time for yourself. If you’re home with multiple family members, find an hour a day to escape.
In the past, I’ve mentioned how I’m not one for making New Year’s resolutions. I believe if you want to make a positive change, it shouldn’t take the clock striking midnight to make it happen. I do, however, like to make a list of goals (these are mine from 2019) along with small things I’d like to do at the start of the new year. These are anything from tiny improvements to my personal well-being (like updating my fitness regimen and drinking more water), to organizing and deep cleaning my apartment. Then I also make a point of including fun things that will bring more
I’ve never been one to shy away from a wellness treatment that has the potential to enhance my overall sense of well-being. When I was given the opportunity to try an at home IV infusion from Wlnss, I jumped at the chance. In the past I’ve had a few B12 shots, but those were nothing compared to having potent vitamins enter directly through my bloodstream. These past few weeks, I’ve been doing more cardio and lifting, and on top of that, I’ve been super busy and not drinking as much water as I should. So getting a vitamin drip couldn’t have come at a better
April is national stress awareness month, so I thought it was only fitting that we discuss various aspects of coping with it, and getting aligned with the universe. In the past I didn’t have the healthiest ways of dealing with stress and learning new approaches didn’t happen overnight. As bizarre as it may sound, it wasn’t until my mid-twenties that I learned to live in the moment. I used to spend my time thinking about the past and worrying about the future. When I moved to California, I became much more in touch with my spiritual self and that has led me to maintain a
