2017 was a tough year, but New Year, New Us, right? 2018 is our year! I know we say and believe that every year but in this coming new year, start taking steps in the right direction to make that mantra true, partly by filling your feed with bloggers that focus on wellness, eating right, and staying active.

Without further ado, here’s a list (in no particular order) of the bloggers that inspire us to be our better selves every day. Did we miss one of your favorites? Let us know in the comments—we’ll be updating this frequently.

How You Glow 

Certified yoga instructor and art therapist Jessie and natural foods chef and holistic nutritionist Tara make up How You Glow, which takes wellness to a modern level, with a focus on educating, inspiring, and as they say, “bringing light to new and exciting ways to make your life even more vibrant.” They do so by covering yoga, cooking (like this insanely delicious looking Morning Fall Smoothie), nutrition (like an Autoimmune Health and Healing Guide), and creativity, all while telling stories of women in wellness around the world.
