Let Yourself Be Seen

By Kate Kole

On Wednesday, I wrote about the conversation surrounding Lady Gaga’s body after her Super Bowl performance. That same day, 2 girlfriends of mine began the #loveyourbellymovement. They shared pictures showcasing their bellies as a way to embrace who they are, to be proud of what they’re working with, to support other women, and to promote self-love.

I was so inspired. I grabbed my camera, flipped it, reversed it, and snapped a picture to share on social media. Continue reading

We Are Millennials

millenials

By Jillian Stacia

We are millennials.

We are defined by our technology. It runs through our veins. It is the filter through which we see the world. It is both our servant and our master, our greatest accomplishment and our biggest downfall.

We believe in working smarter, not harder. In saving time for the things that truly matter

We believe we can change the world. We believe our voice matters. We believe in the power of the few. Continue reading

6 Must-Read Books of 2017

2017-books

By Casey Rose Frank

2017 is likely to be another roller coaster year as we navigate a new political landscape. But as we move forward, let’s celebrate all the good that has yet to happen, including another year of great books. The first third of the year promises some great new books that I have had the pleasure to read in advance of their US publication and highly recommend.

My personal preference for mystery and YA is definitely evident in this list, so you’re in luck if you like unreliable narrators and young characters tackling new paths. Continue reading

By De Elizabeth

“Self-care” has gotten a lot of air time in 2016 – and for good reason. This year was depressing, exhausting, terrifying, and maddening – and that’s just taking the election into consideration. But practicing self-care is going to be even more important in 2017. We’re all anxious to leave 2016 behind, but I have a sinking feeling that next year won’t be much better – from a political standpoint. In just 20 days, we’re saying goodbye to Obama and hello to Trump for four yearsContinue reading

Checking My Status Before Logging On

Social Media.jpg

By Kate Kole

I did a mini social media detox last week. Closing my Twitter tab, scrolling out of Instagram, and logging off Facebook, I declared the 72 hours dividing Wednesday morning and the weekend as deliberately free my typical news feeds. 3 days is hardly a long time and I didn’t expect any lasting life changing epiphanies to occur. I equated it more to the likes of a fruit and vegetable cleanse, figuring that a couple days of eating greens doesn’t overhaul my everyday snacking tendencies the same way a few days without Facebook wouldn’t change my online habits. Continue reading

Hitting The Reset Button

By Kate

Often times when I take or teach a yoga class, we begin the practice by looking inward. Checking in with the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual selves. Noticing tightness and tension. Thoughts and feelings. Essentially, acknowledging whatever unseen things we carried with us to our mats.

I appreciate the guided questioning and encouragement to take note of what’s happening in my headspace and in my heart, as I usually come to find that it’s the first time I’ve had the chance to acknowledge those parts of myself all day. Continue reading

Why Feeling Static in Your Life is Just A Social Media Illusion

Social

By Ariel Sullivan

It’s the feeling when nothing is happening. When nothing is changing. Not for the good, but not necessarily for the bad either. It’s like you’re stuck in the unwavering stability of merely existing.

There’s an unease that I know we all feel when nothing is currently happening in the present moment. It arises when there are no important events occurring in our own lives, yet they seem to be happening to literally everyone else around us. Continue reading

Ah, Tinder. A sea of fish, but, like…not all the fish have great personalities. Or long-term goals. Or scales that look the same in underwater photography as they do IRL. (Okay, that metaphor might be a stretch). But, real talk, it definitely seems like some guys have NO idea what to do with themselves on Tinder. So we’re going to help you out. Here’s how to get your swiping game on point. Continue reading
