let’s just get this out in the open…

I am the new editor of Health,and I don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions. I realize it’s almost blasphemous for a magazine editor to reject the concept of “New Year, New You.”But if we’re honest with ourselves, we know that by mid-January, most of our resolutions have been broken anyway, stored in the mental file of things to feel guilty about. Instead, I try to embrace a concept I learned from my friend Jennifer Pastiloff, a yoga teacher and the founder of the On Being Human workshops: Rather than trying to attackbiggoalsall at once, begineach day with a question: “Now what?” Say you want to stop mindlessly scrolling Instagram first thing in the morning. Your “Now what?”might be keeping your phone in a drawer while you savor your coffee. That’s the spirit behind…

“Before a photo shoot I always make sure to take a spin class. Because I lose so much water, the puff goes away.” A FEW OF HER FAVORITE THINGS… Bingeable TV I just started Pretty Little Liars. I also love The Crownand Downton Abbey, which are my speed. And The Handmaid’s Tale. It’s beyond brilliant. Her Calvins (really!) I have to say, they’re really good, because they have just the right amount of stretch. They come up to a good place. I gave my daughter some, and it was so fun. Beach time I’ve loved the Bahamas since I was a little kid. The white sand, the water, the pace, the quiet. I can completely turn off if I go to the beach. Tequila on the rocks With a lot of lime. You can’t go wrong with tequila.…

Embrace Your Splurge! Love real ice cream? Go for it—a small serving that truly satisfies is better than a pint of skinny stuff that leaves you wanting more. Is “Healthy” Ice Cream Good for You? An entire pint of the newest low-cal ice creams can contain fewer calories than a half-cup of regular ice cream—not to mention 20 grams or more of protein, plus extra fiber. But that doesn’t mean you should polish one off nightly, says Cynthia Sass, RD, Health’s contributing nutrition editor. Some “healthier”frozen treats are made with alternative sweeteners, which can cause bloating and may even drive up sugar cravings in some people. If you like the taste of slimmed-down ice creams, it’s fine to savor a serving. “Just remember to enjoy it as an occasional indulgence rather than an…

1. GET IN LINE Using a creamy pencil, line top and bottom lash lines. Sir John loves cobalt because it looks good on everyone. Color shy? Navy works, too. 2. MAKE IT SMOKY If your line isn’t perfectly straight, use a pointed cotton swab dipped in makeup remover to clean it up. Or smoke it out: Just buff the liner higher up onto the lid with an eye shadow smudge brush. 3. DIAL IT UP Boost the effect by pairing cobalt liner with a matching mascara. Not only is blue on blue striking, it’s also a quick way to make a statement without wearing much other makeup.…
