from the editor

We tend to measure health in ways that are quantifiable: the number of miles we run, calories we consume, hours we sleep. But at Health we believe that one of the most essential components of wellness is something that’s trickier to calculate: how joyful you feel. The thing is, happiness and good health are linked; studies show that a sense of well-being can boost our immune system, make our hearts healthier, and maybe even add years to our lives. But carving out time to do the things that make you happy is not easy—something I tend to think about when I’m crushed between strangers’ bodies on the subway or when it’s been weeks since I’ve talked to my best friend. How, I often wonder, can I do everything I need…

how joyful are you?

A few months ago, I sat down with Ford and had a powerful conversation about women. I told them that one of my goals at Health is to help readers like you feel more joy on a daily basis. What impressed me most during our talk was Ford’s commitment to helping women progress in all areas of their lives, and we decided to team up on a survey. We asked people around the country to tell us what adds to and detracts from their feeling joyful. Throughout the issue, look for little touts like this one for some of the fascinating results—then turn to page 90 for even more facts and advice.…

what the heck is a fat ball?

They sound odd, but these bites have been all over social media—and with good reason! The typically vegan and gluten-free snacks incorporate ingredients high in healthy fats, like nuts and chia and hemp seeds, which keep you satiated. “Chia seeds contain fiber, protein, as well as omega-3 fatty acids, which have anti-inflammatory benefits,” says Frances Largeman-Roth, RDN, a New York City–based nutritionist and author of Eating in Color. Try them at home by using Largeman-Roth’s recipe (right). PB-Chia Energy Bites Active time: 15 minutes Total time: 45 minutes Makes: 15 ½ cup smooth peanut butter, at room temperature1/3 cup chia seeds1/3 cup hemp seeds1 Tbsp. coconut butter¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder 1/ In a bowl, mix the peanut butter with chia and hemp seeds and coconut butter.

it’s baaack! neon sunscreen

Of course you wear sunscreen to prevent cancer and aging, but the mineral sunscreen company Bare Republic is giving you another reason to swipe on SPF—six scented Neon Sunscreen Sticks ($9 each; target.com). They all contain SPF 50, pack nourishing ingredients (such as pomegranate seed oil), and are just plain fun. While you should still slather on your favorite sunscreen first, these sticks give you the ability to get creative (and make for colorful IG pics). Use Lightning Yellow to draw on under-eye stripes, or opt for a mermaid vibe with Electric Blue and Goblin Green. If you’re going to a concert or festival, pick up a three-pack so you can go all-out.…
