welcome to the strength issue

WOMAN ON A MISSION Meet Latham Thomas, a doula, author, business owner, and meditation expert in Brooklyn, New York, who helps mothers dig deep and find their inner strength every day. “I want moms to know they don’t have to be alone,” says Latham, who took over our Breakthrough page this month (page 124). “This is the perfect time to lean into community.” Pivoting to digital doula training and advocacy work for mothers during this time of social distancing, Latham shares some action items for pre- and postpartum women: SEEK out a licensed mental health provider who can be a supportive presence to you during times of great anxiety. START a sister circle of five friends on a group text and check in daily to share the highs and lows of your day. CONNECT…

liz’s letter

Sad as we were for the athletes, and for the loss of an uplifting, inspiring tradition, the WH team was fiercely onboard with the decision to prioritize lives and safety. In this new reality, “strength” was already taking on a new meaning when the world turned upside down again as we all confronted the devastating tragedy of George Floyd’s murder. His life mattered, and so did the lives of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery…and the many victims before them. In all honesty, it has been a humbling time at Women’s Health. As a team, we sprang into action, committing to uncomfortable conversations with each other and creating goals and action items to hold ourselves accountable as journalists and WH staffers. It was just the beginning, yet it took, well, a lot of strength. But…

“i finally learned how to be a morning person.”

EDITOR-IN-CHIEF (WH’S SISTER MAG!) “Own your morning” is a Women’s Health mantra, but I can’t say I’ve been an owner of the a.m. myself. Until recently, I would sleep with my phone charging next to my head on a side table and rush out of bed when I heard my toddler in the next room around 7:00. But since I started working from home in mid-March, a lot about my schedule has changed. With stay-at-home orders in place, I have a new appreciation for the moments I had to myself while I commuted to the office. I’ve realized I’m tense without that alone time, and the only way I can get it is by being a morning person. Still, learning to rise with the sun has taken some effort. I bought…

warm up

Level Up Your Lingerie Sexy used to mean scratchy in the underwear world, but no longer. Sleek, sheer bralettes are in; super-padded, heavyduty push-up numbers are out (see ya never, underwire). As for your lower half, soft microfiber skivvies actually move with you, unlike lace and silk. Pieces from women-owned Negative Underwear (shown here), CUUP, Blush, True & Co., and Lively feature details like antimicrobial bamboo lining to wick away moisture, breathable mesh accents, and unexpected color combos, while still offering support where you need it—making them even cozier than your birthday suit. TECHNIQUE SCHOOL Tap, You’re It A shoulder tap might seem like the plank’s less popular step-sis, but ohhh, this move is much, much more. You’ll still build core strength, sure, but with its added upper-body action, this exercise forces you to…
