liz’s letter

EDITOR-IN-CHIEF @lizplosser There’s nothing as #WHStrong as embracing who you are and being open to who you’re becoming. Recently, my husband Matt and I were discussing our “superpowers” with each other. (The convo was inspired by the James Bond–level teapot he gave me for Christmas after watching me boil—er, splash—my hot water in a saucepan all winter. He is the Marvel hero of perfect presents.) Mine: hugging and snuggling the heck out of my kiddos, waking up really early, and handwriting heartfelt thank-you notes. A new one I intend to add to that list, though, is not something I would’ve thought of as a strength a year ago: vulnerability. And by this, I mean sharing my struggles and weaknesses, even if it feels uncomfortable or scary saying them out loud. That’s how you connect…

1 My childhood friend Matt and I live on opposite sides of the country, but we take a trip together every two years to reconnect. Here we are post-hike at Moraine Lake in Banff National Park before taking a dip in the freezing water. Kristin Canning Health Editor @kriscann 2 I love yoga sessions with @rachel enicks. She’s a mom friend and Mirror trainer who always makes at-home workouts fun. Sometimes my daughter, Rei, will join in, mimicking a pose or two—it’s the best. Aya Kanai EIC of WH sister mag Marie Claire @ayakanai 3 I’m constantly trying HIIT classes with my workout buddy-slash-boyfriend. Our current favorite? Practicing jabs and crosses. Boxing dates offer an energy boost we’d never get from dinner and even the most action-filled movie. Kristine Thomason Fitness and Wellness Editor @kristine.thomason 4…

balancing act

EDITOR-IN-CHIEF (WH’S SISTER MAG!) Follow the ups and downs on Insta @ayakanai. “It’s time to take my financial health seriously.” When I started this column, I knew I wanted to cook more and exercise regularly. But as I’ve worked on those aspects of wellness, I’ve come to realize there’s another area that needs a little shaping up: my finances. It’s not that I currently have money woes (I consider myself a fairly frugal person); I’ve just never had a long-term plan. I’ve always thought that if I have enough $$$ to get by, then I don’t need to give it much attention. But money doesn’t work like that. You need to “train” your finance muscles—as you would any other—to see them grow. Most important, I want to provide the best possible future for my…

zen to zzz

For each pose, focus on longer exhalations and shorter inhalations. Try breathing in for two counts and out for four. This technique helps you relax and sleep better, says Kerpius. HAPPY BABY Lie faceup on floor, then lift legs and bend knees toward armpits. Grab outside edges of feet with hands, face soles of feet toward ceiling, and soften lower back to floor. Take deep belly breaths, feeling your back expand on floor. Hold for one to two minutes. The infant-inspired posture releases tension in your lower back. SUPINE BOUND ANGLE Store stress in your hips? This setup will let that ish go. Lie faceup on floor, bend knees, and bring soles of feet together so knees fall to the sides and outer edges of feet stay on floor. (Place a pillow under each…
