1. Elizabeth Endres Finds Healing in Sharing Acne Struggles


When Elizabeth Endres and her cofounder, Dale Borchiver, started their fitness blog Sweats & The City in 2016, no one could have predicted that the pair would now be on camera daily sharing fitness, beauty, and lifestyle tips with an audience of 109,000 followers.

2. Why You Should Set Goals, Not Resolutions This Year

As the new year rolls around, it’s a great time to set new goals and start the year off on the right foot. While resolutions are at the forefront of everyone’s mind, setting goals will be far more beneficial, whether you’re setting them for business or your personal life.

The reason that goals are more beneficial than resolutions is that goals are more specific and action oriented than resolutions, which makes it easier to create a plan to achieve them.

Here’s how to set goals that will set you up for success in the new year.

3. Betty White’s Lessons About Longevity, Work & Retirement

Betty White died only a few weeks from her 100th birthday. Few people knew her, that is, really knew her as a person. Most of us knew her through her work. And, it is through her long life, and long work life, that we can draw some insight for our own possible futures and ideas about work and retirement.

Betty White’s career began shortly after World War II. Depending on your generation you may know her from her radio voice, you may recall her from more than a few game shows, such as, “What’s My Line?” If you are my age, you may remember her best from her role as Sue Ann Nivens on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show.” Or, you may think “Golden Girls.” Her decades of work will be well documented in the media in coming days. Bottomline? She made us smile. She was America’s sweetheart.

4. Best Daily Multivitamins for Women At Every Age

We all need vitamins and minerals to support the body’s systems and functions and to promote overall good health. While you can take in the bulk of these essential nutrients from what you eat, you may not be able to fit them all into your diet every single day. Plus, some are virtually impossible to get through food. And, that’s where vitamins for women come in.

Multivitamins, in particular, can be useful for helping women avoid certain nutritional deficiencies, such as iron if they’re vegetarian or calcium if they don’t consume dairy. They commonly also pack a number of vitamins, including A, B (B6 and B12), C, E, and minerals, such as magnesium, potassium, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folate, and biotin. However, if your bloodwork shows a deficiency, your doctor may advise you to take a supplement on its own. This is usually done for low levels of iron and vitamin D, which is not found in foods unless they’re fortified with it, you don’t get enough sun, or you have trouble absorbing it naturally.
