Can You Recover From Burnout While Still Working?

Do you ever let a text sit on your phone for days on end without opening it? How about telling yourself you’ll mail that letter or make that call next week? (Or the week after, or maybe the week after that.) If you ever spend days, weeks, even months putting off a simple task that would only take a few minutes to complete, you’re probably dealing with burnout.

“Burnout is a state of exhaustion that stems from prolonged stress,” says Rhia Batchelder, burnout expert and founder of Rebuild with Rh

Amenities and Activities Make Relaxation Easy at the Hyatt Regency Aruba

A strong breeze blew through the open air entryway at the Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort Spa + Casino as we arrived late in the afternoon. Squinting through the bright sunlight, I could make out palm trees rustling in the wind and the turquoise ocean just beyond, calling my name for a quick plunge—right after I finished the cold glass of champagne they welcomed us with.

A swim and a shower later and we were having a bite for dinner at Alfresco Bar, the resort’s version of a lobby bar, dining on one

How To Start Birdwatching

Picking up a new hobby usually means an investment upfront—time, money, or usually both. We’re big fans of easy, affordable, screen-free hobbies, but not many require as few resources as bird watching. If you have eyes and ears, you don’t need anything else.

Birdwatching as a hobby surged during the pandemic as folks spent more time in nature—and had more time to kill in general. More hours spent looking out the window or going on walks led to more interest in bird watching, and the database ap

Is Hemp The Skin Care Industry's New MVP? This Beauty Brand Thinks Yes

Bad hair days, move over — it’s time to talk about “bad” skin days. You know, those days when you look in the mirror to find multiple breakouts or a patch of irritation that won’t calm down.

The Benefits of Cold Plunges For Mental Health

If you’re anything like us, you’ve probably been hearing about cold plunging lately. Influencers on social media immerse themselves in freezing cold water in order to recover after a workout session or just to clear their minds.

In my vision of a utopic future in which we’ve solved climate change, trees grow on the tops of shiny solar-powered buildings, civilians zoom around on waterway-based public transit (like Venice but more efficient), and everything smells like vegetation. And, of course, when folks have to drive cars, they’re electric.

Electric vehicles are at the forefront of environmental discourse—due to talking heads like Elon Musk, sure, but also because of their realistic promises. EVs help us maintain our

I have terrible sleep temperature regulation. In fact, I have terrible body temperature regulation in general (hello, Raynaud’s), but it’s especially uncomfortable when it interferes with my sleep.

Derms Say These Are The Best Cleansers To Use Alongside Tretinoin & Other Retinoids

Retinol — it’s one of dermatologists’ favorite skin care ingredients for its versatility and effectiveness. Retinol is a superstar does-it-all ingredient, as it helps promote skin cell turnover, increase collagen production, treat acne, and fade hyperpigmentation.
