We want to hear from you! Make our day by taking our survey.


There’s more to a great night’s sleep than just getting in those eight hours. To figure out how much sleep you need, count cycles instead of hours. You should aim for five to six 90-minute cycles for an amazing night’s sleep. Any less or more may throw off your body clock and make you feel tired or cranky. [Swirled]

*From our partner Winc

Whether you’re planning a quiet night in alone, a girl’s night with your crew or a romantic evening with your partner, you deserve quality and Winc has it. The company curates wine and delivers it straight to your door for less than you’d pay for the dusty bottles at your local store.

The Deets: After taking Winc’s wine quiz, you’re directed to a selection of wine to buy without having to schlep outside for your vino fix. When you get recommendations based on the answers to your quiz, you can choose how many reds or whites you want to receive in your collection of four bottles. Oh, and shipping takes just two to three days after completing your purchase. Bonus: Just for being an amazing Swirled subscriber, Winc is offering $25 off your first month’s order of wines and free shipping if you purchase four bottles or more.

The Bottom Line: Putting in excess time and effort to get your hands on a good wine for Valentine’s Day is so last year. Winc makes it easy to find your faves and discover new wines for around $13 to $15 a bottle. Plus, the wine ships right to your door. If you need us, we’ll be listening to the sweet sounds of bottles popping and pouring on repeat. Get $25 off your wine.

Recipe Of The Day: If you’re looking for a five-ingredient, on-the-go breakfast, consider making a keto breakfast wrap. The three-egg omelet wrapped in creamy avocado and enclosed in a sheet of nori (edible seaweed) will take you just seven minutes to make. And all you need is three eggs, one organic nori sheet, a half of an avocado (sliced), butter and salt. [Swirled]
