boost today after the 3 day holiday. This is courtesy of Vital Juice Daily.

Ever feel like taking a dip in the middle of the day? So do we, which is why we're excited that our favorite healthy dip has just become portable. Wild Garden's new single-serving hummus packets taste great, give you a fiber boost and can be stashed in any bag or drawer... perfect for the chick on the go!

 

 

Labor Day's come and gone, leaving many of us to labor behind a desk all day. Incorporate these 5 tips to keep energy levels at their summertime high:

1. Wake muscles with a stretch to increase blood circulation and improve balance and posture. Try this simple AM routine.

2. Go hot and cold in the shower. Turn water as cold as you can stand it, back to warm. Repeat 2 -3 times.

3. Focus on 1 thing at a time. Multi-tasking eats into productivity and you'll feel more motivated when you cross something off your list.

4. Take a break from your routine -- go to a different lunch spot, explore a new store, sit in a park at lunch. Change does a body good.

5. Pack something essential for the office -- citrus essential oils (lemon, orange, grapefruit) help energize so keep a mist or candle handy.

Bonus: Repeat #1 every hour or so throughout your workday and make sure you find time for yesterday's tips.

Great tips.! People with physical jobs think it's weird that sitting at a desk can make you so tired - but it is the sitting that actually does the number on you.

This is just what I needed! My body aches from sitting too long.
