Good news! Research has shown that napping can help improve memory. During the time spent catching some Z’s your brain is able to process unconscious information giving you the opportunity to recall tasks and thoughts more efficiently.

Life Hack Of The Day: Jewelry Edition

Paint a thin coat of clear nail polish on the inside of your costume jewelry to help prevent it from turning your finger green.


Peace and quiet. It may sound like a fairytale, but it’s vital to discover our true purpose. But we rarely, if ever accidentally stumble upon silence in this world. We have to seek it out — sometimes desperately and the harder it is to find, the more stress-prone we become. Our bodies will stay in a chronic stressful state which can lead to excess tension in the body. And without silence, we’re unable to think clearly and creatively or process new information. Take time today to walk away from the noise and find a space that will benefit your mind, body and soul. [Swirled]

Whole Foods is your go-to for everything from the latest oat milk, to wild-caught fish to a pint (or two) of Enlightened. But we’re willing to bet that you don’t know as much about the grocer as you might think. For instance, did you know that it was the first “Certified Organic” grocer or that you can sample nearly everything in the store? It’s true — just ask an employee for help first. Stock up on even more unknown Whole Foods facts. [Swirled]

Recipe Of The Day: Sheet pan chicken fajitas are a must for a weeknight dinner. You can pull it together quickly and enjoy for dinner or lunch throughout the week. Marinate boneless chicken, then combine with bell peppers and onions on a sheet pan and bake. Finish with cilantro and lime juice and serve in a tortilla, over rice or mixed greens for a feel-good meal. Dinner accomplished. [Allrecipes]

A quick tip from yours truly: Bring some more veggie power to dinner — add zucchini, squash or mushrooms to the pan in addition to, or in place of, the peppers.

No matter the locale, there’s always a way to fit in a little me time into a vacation — besides, isn’t pampering yourself part of the fun of traveling? Start the trip off right by staying hydrated on the flight and wearing relaxed fitting clothes so you stay cooler, which is essential to a good rest. Take advantage of the steam room and sauna at the hotel gym or really indulge and get a massage. Small changes can impact your entire trip and ensure you get the care you deserve. [Forbes]
