liz’s letter

EDITOR-IN-CHIEF Last night, I took a one-mile walk at dusk with my husband, Matt, through our Brooklyn neighborhood. @lizplosser It’s a ritual we started in March, during the early days of lockdown, as a way to transition from “office life” to “relax time,” since we were working out of our apartment while simultaneously managing remote/virtual school for our three young children. In other words: OMG, things were crazy. But soon, that evening walk became so much more than a line in the sand. Even though Matt and I sit only a few feet from one another, we can go the entire workday without ever actually chatting. Plus, after hearing bits and pieces of each other’s calls, the evening stroll is an opportunity for us to connect the dots. We have tough talks about the…

SAY HI TO KEESHA, WH’S COLUMNIST She’s sharing all as she reboots her well-being. This month: her solo excursion glow-up.… “Self-Love Doesn’t Just Appear; You Have to Really Work at It” As I continue to uncover ways to boost my health, I’m truly seeing how much the mental, emotional, and spiritual pieces are entwined. This process is either like an onion where you peel the layers back and get to the center, or like an artichoke where each piece reveals its own layers. (Maybe it’s both!) One of my goals is to practice more self-compassion and self-love. Although I have the words to describe why this kind of self-care is necessary, and I’ve read allll the tips, I don’t know how to actually practice it. I need to be taught. So I decided to…

warm up

A Fresh Steep This winter’s new cozy bevy: coffee that brews like tea. Buzzy beans made by Golden Ratio ($15 for 7 bags, drinkgoldenratio.com) and women-founded brands Chamberlain Coffee ($20 for 10, chamberlaincoffee.com) and LOMLI ($22 for 10, lomlicoffee.com) create an unplugged morning moment, without the fuss. The grounds come in single-serve, compostable, tea bag–like sachets, so you just plop one into a mug of hot water and steep for 5 to 10 minutes. You can control the strength: Bathe the packet longer for a stronger cup, remove early for a lighter flavor, or immerse multiple bags overnight in the fridge for cold brew, then enjoy your favorite go-to energizing drink at home, on the trails, wherever! TECHNIQUE SCHOOL Kick Start If you wanna werk your biggest booty muscle without a barbell (*raises hand*),…

leggings with life

583 The estimated number of water bottles, in billions, that will be produced in 2021 Source: Statista If you’ve already swapped one-and-done water bottles for a Swell or Hydro Flask, there’s another way to make your workout more eco: Change your pants! To keep plastic out of landfills (where it sits for up to 450 years before breaking down—yep, 450), brands are transforming tossed bottles into leggings—and they’re just as comfortable as your fave pair. Read how the magic happens. Sources: Quang Dinh, cofounder of Girlfriend Collective; Jay Hertwig, SVP of sales and marketing at Unifi 1. Where it all begins: You toss a water bottle into a recycling bin—#Always. (Keep the cap on: It’s made of polyethylene that can be used for things like reusable bags.) 2. The bottle is collected, sorted with similar plastic beverage containers,…
