walk with me again!

WERE YOU ONE OF THE 2,626 PEOPLE who took part in Prevention’s first-ever Virtual Walk last October? Either way, good news: You can keep that momentum going—or start fresh—with our next walk on May 2! What’s a virtual walk? I’m glad you asked, because I can vouch that it’s a fun and rewarding thing to do. Our Virtual Walk is a real 5K walk that you do wherever you are.

It’s totally free to take part, but if you want an official walk T-shirt and an exclusive bib number, it’s $35. (For sign-up and lots more…

say hello to longer days

When it’s time to spring the clocks forward (this year on Sunday, March 8), it’s always a catch-22—you lose a precious hour of sleep in exchange for longer, warmer days. But even that slight change in routine can affect your body and your health. That’s because your circadian rhythm, which is ruled by light and darkness, essentially resets itself, and that may make you feel mentally sluggish and more tired than usual as well as throw your eating habits out of whack. Flip the page for simple ways to help guide your body through making the transition more easily.…

conquer daylight savings time

Plan Your Zzz’s Sleep experts usually recommend going to bed and waking up at the same time seven days a week, so now is your chance to sleep in on a weekend. Aim for a peppier Monday by snoozing a little later on the Sunday morning after the clocks change, and treat yourself to a catnap that afternoon. Embrace the Light Our body clocks use light to tell when it’s time to sleep and rise, so dim the lights in the house and turn off electronic devices at least an hour before bed as a signal that it’s time to wind down. Wake up your body the next a.m. by throwing open the shades and soaking in the morning light. Snack Right For long-lasting energy without a sudden crash, reach for products…

protect your complexion

Native to Nordic countries where winters are long and harsh, arctic cloudberries have been known to survive in the most extreme cold, not just adapting to their environment but thriving in it. Now skincare brands are harnessing arctic cloudberries’ renowned strength and protective properties by using them in complexion products from cleansers to facial oils. “These berries are packed with vitamin E and phytosterols that help prevent free-radical damage,” explains Joshua Zeichner, M.D., a dermatologist in New York City. They also contain high levels of omega fatty acids, which help protect the skin barrier, even out skin tone, and promote healthy collagen production. For the best benefits, look for the ingredient in skincare products (like those at right) that are not rinsed off, but left on the face so they…

PAPAYA SALAD Star ingredients like green papaya, carrots, and green beans are filled with fiber and antioxidants; cilantro and mint pack big flavor without added sodium; and peanuts provide an extra protein boost. Plus, loading up on crunchy raw veggies first will leave you less room to overindulge later. SUMMER ROLLS Behold, the perfect appetizer—you’ll get a big bite of raw veggies and lean poached shrimp in delicately thin rice paper. For an even lighter option without sacrificing flavor, ask the restaurant to prepare them as lettuce wraps instead. WOK DISHES Order stir-fried selections with brown rice (when available) on the side; these tend to be loaded with veggies and lean protein options like chicken breast, shrimp, and tofu. If a dish comes in a sauce, ask for half the regular amount to be used…
