Wellness Roundup June 9th: Mindful Movement

Could it be Friday already? Yes. The answer is yes. It’s Friday, which means we’re breaking down the latest in this week’s wellness trends. Weekends are wonderful for multiple reasons, one of which is the fact that you finally get some time to focus on yourself. During the week, we’re constantly doing things for other people (which is good, but can get a little draining), and now we can turn inward and try to improve.

As always, we’re breaking down the wellness trends in five categories:

  • How-to
  • Try
  • Move
  • Beauty
  • Make

How-to:

Eyebrows are one of those things that have a huge impact, yet we don’t really realize it. I’m going to break the fourth wall as a writer, and quickly tell you about a personal experience. Somehow, someway, I accidentally shaved off the corner of my left eyebrow. It’s looked weird ever since. This guide on brow styles was an absolute god send.

An excellent source of protein for all us non-meat eaters out there are legumes, like chickpeas. The beautiful thing about chickpeas is that they’re essentially an open canvas for flavor experimentation. If you’re a fan of spicy foods, this spiced chickpea recipe will transform your life (for the better).
