Up Your Health Game

Bombs Away!

Shower bombs are the fancier cousins of bath bombs and, if you’ve never tried one, it’s time to get on board. Our top picks: Rinse Bath & Body Co. Shower Bombs and Salus Shower Bombs are infused with essential oils and they can turn your shower into a spa experience. [Swirled]

One Tough Cookie

Struggling to have just one cookie? You’re not alone. Research shows that our brains are hard-wired to respond positively to eating, even when we don’t feel super pumped about the food we’re consuming. It all comes down to endorphins. [Swirled]

Be My BFF?

Spending 90 hours of quality time with someone is, on average, how long it takes to become real friends, according to science. The length of time jumps to 200 hours for developing close friendships. And when it comes to how that time is spent, the percentage spent talking is actually a factor that’s unrelated to friendship closeness. [The Ladders]

Live Like A Boss

Free Of Charge

Leaving your phone plugged in overnight can actually wear down your battery. Charging your phone when it’s at 100 percent can cause it to overheat by constantly “topping off” the charge. The bottom line: Save time and money by charging your phone only when you need to. [Swirled]

On The (Job) Hunt

Job hunting can feel like the absolute worst, but knowing where to look can make the process better. According to Indeed’s Best Cities for Job Seekers 2018 report, San Jose, San Francisco and Boston top the list of cities with the best job opportunities. [Moneyish]

Get In The Zone

11 a.m. is the best time of day to get sh*t done, according to research. The reason? Studies show that 75 percent of people are most mentally alert between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m., meaning most of us hit peak productivity right around the same time. [Thrive Global]

Savor Each Bite

Feelin’ Crafty

Looking for a fruity new libation to replace last summer’s frosé craze? Fruitsicle beer could be your new go-to summer drink. Developed by Odd Side Ales, the fruity brew comes in two flavors: Black and Blueberry, and Strawberry, and it has an ABV of 4.5 percent. [Swirled]

Nice To Meat You
