Stay Healthy, Stylish, and Fun!
Hot temps make refreshingly cool drinks an absolute must! Smoothies are great for all ages, and you can change them up to suit your nutritional needs and flavor preferences. Of course, yogis do not live on liquids alone, so enjoy fresh summer recipes like these all season long.
Summer brings with it lots of fun amusements, but it may not be so thrilling if you are already riding an emotional roller coaster Finding Optimism has a free, mood tracking app that helps you pinpoint stressors and create a strategic plan for enhancing your mindset. Brightening up your closet may help lift your spirits too!

Stay summer sunny!
