Link Love: Rise and Shine

I’m an early riser. I haven’t always been a morning person, but for the past several years, I’ve simply just been unable to sleep in. It started with a desire to get in an hour or two of writing or researching or brainstorming or reading before heading to the office. Now, I feel like I’ve discovered the most beautiful part of the day—those lovely, quiet morning hours in which I can read, sip on my morning cup of coffee, and yes, do a little work—but mostly just gently enter a new day.

My morning habit means I rarely stay up super-late anymore, but I can’t imagine my life without my calming, meditative morning hours—which is why I love the lead story in today’s Link Love Friday post: 8 Ways to Wake Up Happy, from Prevention.

More information on the dairy + sugar = acne debate.

There were definitely some news-to-me items on this list of 20 things you didn’t know you could recycle.

From MindBodyGreen, 8 things you should always buy.

CV Skinlabs has launched a new campaign to help get their gentle, natural products into cancer treatment centers and hospitals. I always love hearing about how natural skincare companies come to be—Britta’s story is really inspiring.

Link Love: Happy March!

Big thanks to everyone who has already filled out the 2013 Indigo+Canary Reader Survey! It’ll be up until March 9—I’ll randomly select a winner for the $25 Spirit Beauty Lounge gift card on March 10, and announce the winner here.

In the meantime, I have some great links to share:

There’s a good list of BPA-free canned goods and baby formula at the end of this post from EWG.

I’m loving this slideshow of two-minute tricks that boost your health from Well+Good NYC. (Dry brushing, yes!)

I really appreciate this post on No More Dirty Looks: making choices about what’s “clean enough” for you. (Reminds me a little of this post from last summer.)

I’m definitely going to make this citrus surface cleanser from Organic Authority. Look out, countertops!

Good information from Prevention: the best time of day to take your meds. (And I’d also like to test out these all-natural perfumes…)

What are you reading+enjoying lately? —Aleigh

Link Love Friday

This has not been a great week, and it’s all my fault. I know how to manage my stress levels and what I need to do to help maintain that optimistic outlook of mine, and I’ve been letting things slip. It happens to everyone, I guess. But I’m determined to get back to the positive mindset I had at the beginning of the week, and it starts with being grateful that today is Friday (instead of wishing today was Saturday). And I have some great, happy links to share, so that helps, too.
