Living Well With Dr. Frank Lipman

I’ve had hypothyroidism for quite some time. It’s something that runs in my family. As I started to dig deeper into the disorder, I realized that it’s very much connected to the gut, and I wanted to explore the root of the disorder versus simply the symptoms and causes—which led me to the work of Dr. Frank Lipman. His new book, How to Be Well, is about more than gut

Marriage, like parenting, is messy, complicated, beautiful, emotional, and imperfectly perfect. We learn so much about ourselves through our relationships, for the people we do life with often hold up a mirror to our most triggering aspects. I experience wild comfort in knowing I married my best friend – someone who constantly reminds me that I’m enough, as I explore, evolve, and cultivate new sides of myself. As human beings,

Love, Gen: I See the Beauty in You

Whether I know it or not, I’m always struggling with my definition of beauty— from aging, to perfectionism, to fat-shaming myself, to holding my cards close to my chest about getting my period every month to how often I indulge in “beauty” maintenance.

This is a sponsored post in partnership with the Nexcare Brand. All words and opinions are my own. When I was growing up in the Bay Area, we played outside constantly—climbing trees, making up games, riding bikes, you name it.

Gen’s May Lit List: Let’s Talk About Sex

One of the places we can feel the most self-conscious about our bodies is in the bedroom. Even if you’ve been with your partner for a long time, like I have, being naked physically still comes with a lot of emotional triggers.
