what are you excited about this summer?

EDITOR-IN-CHIEF As you can see, warm weather activities—like fly-fishing!—make me very happy. There’s even research on how merely anticipating a vacay results in a mood boost. But you know what? The real, actual vacation part is pretty darn awesome. Especially if you plan it right—which is what we’re here to help you do, with 21 amazing wellness getaways curated for the type of traveler you are (spa girl! mountain mama! foodie! etc.). Get the deets on page 115. It’s cool if you identify with all of the above, by the way. I do. My favorite place on earth is Dunton Hot Springs in the San Juan mountains of Colorado. I love the crisp air and endless active adventures. But I am into a chill trip too, and I settled into one with…

“the sugar slide is real.”

MARTA TOPRAN, BEAUTY DIRECTOR Follow my journey on Insta @martatopran. A year into my health journey, I started really feelin’ myself. I was getting up at 6:45 a.m. every day and crushing it at the gym, I was buying jeans in a size I hadn’t worn since college, and I felt ah-mazing. So what did I do about these wins? I celebrated them. With an ice cream here and a chocolate there. Somehow, my birthday turned into a birth month and my once-firm no-sugar rule became as soft as the spoonfuls of fro-yo I was eating. Rock-sugar bottom came when I bought a big pack of cookies to support a friend’s business and ate ’em all in three days. I felt out of control; sweets had reclaimed their power over me. So I…

“Confession: I am horrible at jumping rope! But @chelsea.aguiar’s message about how she’s a work in progress has inspired me to give this skill another go.” @RHILMANTEL Digital Director “This passport cover makes me feel put together, even on a long flight, and the light color is easy to spot in my carry-on.” $45, shopalwaysrooney.com @DLSMIT08 Senior Branded Content Editor Curiosity is why I became a journalist, so this colorful post from @wordsmeetwalls really speaks to me.

The Puerto Rico–born star, 46, has been working in Hollywood for 25 years in a variety of roles—in Without a Trace, Devious Maids, the new ABC drama Grand Hotel—so she understands the power of diversifying. Whether it’s changing her four-times-a-week workouts with trainer Maria Leguizamon or shaking up her résumé, she’s all about trying something new. Next up? Directing. Her passion project is a short film about adopting pets. “I just want to learn and explore,” she says. With responsibilities on camera and off, including raising two kids with husband Eric Winter, Roselyn often bounces between home and hotel. She maintains her wellness routine on the road with 25-minute resistance-band workouts. And back in L.A., she’s establishing a devotional-reading routine to nurture her spiritual side. “I’m trying to create a…

go greek, get fast

Another huge score for the champion Mediterranean diet: It’ll whip you into fighting shape—as in, soup up your workout performance—quickly. Folks who followed the capital-M eating plan for just four days ran 6 percent speedier than their previous 5-K pace, while those who stayed on a Western diet (heavy in dairy, refined sugars, and processed foods), well, didn’t, according to a new study. Researchers think the anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-acidic (i.e., alkaline) properties of Mediterranean foods such as veggies, nuts, fruit, seafood, EVOO, and whole grains may promote better cellular function. So fuel up with grilled fish for din and apples with almond butter for snacking. Your tired legs will thank you.
