How to increase your metabolism and other things

Happy Monday. How was your weekend? Was it lovely? Tell me more.

It’s pretty easy to fall down the internet rabbit hole of health and wellness tips. (Hello! Can you hear me from down here!? It’s dark and there’s lots of rabbit food.)

I read a few things recently that I thought  were really smart, whether it be because they were scientific or heartfelt. Since these select pieces rose above the noise, I wanted to share them with you.

If you’ve read anything brilliant or useful recently, let me know in the comments!

This post employs data and science-driven answers to a very commonly asked question: How can I make my body work faster?

I love checking this list before trying something new. Lara walks us through her experience in each class, acknowledges her personal biases and creates a quantitative ranking system of each experience.


There is a somewhat holier-than-though notion that if you arm yourself with the right amount of organic carrots and meditation pillows, you can solve all of your earthly problems. Except when you can’t. I loved this yogi’s take on that mentality, despite her persisting participation in it.

Bad, sudden things happen and this woman has an incredibly strong mental response when one happens to her.

These are smart tips with easy-to-follow instructions. Bookmark this for when your quad hurts and you don’t know what to do.

That’s all for today, folks. Have a great start to your week!
