from the editor

Hi! I’m Amy. I’m the new editor of Health. I’m also a runner, green-juice fan, burpee lover (yes, really), enthusiastic home cook, traveler, reader, and three-hour-a-day train commuter. And the mom of two awesome teens (plus a pug and two cats). So, I’m busy—one of my main #goals right now is to get more sleep. Sound familiar? I expect you are also juggling family, work, healthy pursuits, and everything else you love to do. Squeezing it all in definitely isn’t easy. But we are here to help. Think of Health as your handbook for living well and feeling great. We cut through all the confusing and often contradictory information out there to provide you with what you really need to know. In these pages you’ll find the most current, trustworthy advice to…

Meet… PATRICIA MITNAUL Associate photo editor The food I’d eat every day if I could: Honestly, candy. TootsiePops, Sour Patch Watermelons, gummy bears—you name it! My happy place is: Anywhere with my husband and our pups, Q and Seven. An evening of self-care is: A healthy dinner, a face mask, and Dateline. I get the best sleep when: I have clean sheets. My goal for fall: Make it to the Brimfield Antique Flea Market in Massachusetts. My grandparents used to go every year.

Spritz and Smile Twenty-one years after launching the original Clinique Happy fragrance, the company is unveiling six new joyful scents. To come up with the latest editions, it crowd-sourced, asking people which smells make them happiest. The winners: baked goods, flowers, fresh air, tea, the beach. (It also updated the OG perfume.) Pick your fave and wear it on its own or layer a few to create a signature blend. ($22 each; at Clinique counters and clinique.com) Turn Up the Volume Hair spray isn’t one-size-fits-all. The formula that works for your fine-haired friend probably won’t cut it for your thick curls, but that’s about to change. Living Proof has broken the mold with its new Perfect Hair Day Body Builder ($29; sephora.com). The flow can be adjusted, depending on the result you want. Not…

the secret to strong legs

When it comes to sculpting stellar legs, Anna Kaiser, creator of AKT, has a winning record. Proof: Just look at her star clients, which include Shakira, Kelly Ripa, and Karlie Kloss. Lucky for you, the trainer is dishing on two of her favorite moves to sculpt sexy stems: Lateral Lunges and Toe Lifts. “Lateral Lunges are a killer workout that you can do anywhere. No equipment needed,” says Kaiser. “And Toe Lifts work your legs while forcing you to maintain good posture and a strong core—and for you heel-wearers, it stretches the front of your leg and strengthens your calves.” Do each three times a week for tighter, more toned legs. Lateral Lunges Start with feet wider than hip-width apart (A). Step left foot out to side and bend knee. With weight…

Caramel Apple Yogurt Savor your favorite fairground snack with this creamy, protein-rich combo of sweet apple and indulgent caramel. Ginger Applesauce Try this artisanal applesauce hot or cold. Either way, the natural ginger tang will give you a warm feeling inside.…

hey, siri—help me be healthy

WHAT SHE SAID “I feel most body-positive when I’m just truly being my authentic self: making no apologies, not bending for anyone, not changing a moment of who I am—just living my own truth.” —Candice Huffine, model and founder of Day/Won athletic brand Lose It! This meal-tracking app has encouraged people to count calories since 2008, but now it uses Siri’s learning capabilities to remember when and what you ate—meaning it reminds you to log meals when it knows you usually eat. 10% Happier Whether at work or right before bed, just say to your watch, “Help me relax,” and you will be automatically guided through a soothing meditation session. Nike Run Club Say you go for a run around the same time every day: This app learns your routine and creates a shortcut on the screen so…
