I don’t do much international traveling, but when I do I have a love hate relationship with it. I love traveling and having new experiences and seeing new things, but I DON’T love the long process of getting from point A to point B. In order to make the most of my international travels, I follow these handy travel tips to help me arrive feeling my best.

  1. Fuel yourself up: In-flight food isn’t always the best, and it is crazy expensive, so get a nice healthy meal before you board your plane. It is so worth it! Also, pack healthy snacks like nuts or dried fruit or granola bars so that you don’t load up on junk during the flight. You will feel so much more energized after healthy snacking!images (1)
  2. Prepare to freshen up: I always pack a small travel sized makeup bag in my carry on with me that I can pull out throughout my day of travel. It has a toothbrush and toothpaste, makeup wipes, deodorant, and other items that can help me feel fresh after a long day of travel. Feeling fresh while traveling makes it way more bearable!
  3. If possible, carry on all your luggage: I know, it is hard to pack all of your essentials into carry on luggage, but try your hardest! Nothing is worse than finding out your luggage has been lost when you arrive at your destination. It will also save you tons of time because you can avoid waiting for your luggage later on! You can walk off the plane and straight to your car.
  4. Drink Up: You will likely be given a small cup of water during your flight, but that isn’t going to cut it. Bring an empty water bottle with you and fill it up once you get passed security. Airplanes dry you out because of the circulated air, and traveling can be exhausting, so keeping yourself hydrated will keep you energized and awake.

Good luck, and have a blast wherever your international travels take you!

4 Ways You Could Be Dooming Your Metabolism

I often hear people say “Man, I wish I had a better metabolism and could eat anything I wanted.” It is true, a fast metabolism is something that a lot of us wish for. Luckily, it can be achieved! There are a lot of things you do every day unknowingly that are driving your metabolism down, so it is important to drop these habits if you want to improve your metabolism.

  1. Sitting all day: When you sit all day it causes your body to turn off at the metabolic level as your circulation slows. Your fat burning enzymes turn off and your blood sugar is used less. Try getting up and walking ever hour or so to wake your circulation up. I know this can be hard, being in school all day, but walking to class can help wake that circulation up.a972dcb2-100c-4343-8513-153879ad6b69_2048x2048
  2. Not getting enough snooze time: Not getting enough sleep can cause our metabolism to slow down to conserve energy. Sleep deprivation also increases our cortisol levels, which lowers the hormones that are used to metabolize nutrients.
  3. Drinking too little H2O: Water isn’t the most fun drink to guzzle (I mean, Dr. Pepper tastes pretty much 10x better), but it is the best thing for you. It can speed your metabolism up almost 30% after you drink some down!
  4. Eating at bad times: Your body has a natural rhythm that goes with your sleep and wake cycle, and it has a hard time digesting food at night. People who eat later at night burn less calories than those who eat earlier in the evening, studies prove it! Also, eating light meals during the day and then a big meal at night is not smart.

Staying away from these metabolism-slowing habits helps you kick your calorie-burning power into gear, but you still need to eat healthy and exercise to be as healthy as you can be.

Hey darlings!

Do you ever get frustrated with having short hair? Do you get tired of waiting months and months for it to grow to the length you want? Today I am going to fill you in on the three secrets of growing your hair long and strong! 

Tip#1:

Take vitamins! Vitamins give your hair strength which helps prevent breakage. When your hair starts getting split ends, it causes it to break off and get shorter. Vitamins also strengthen your immune system which promotes hair growth. A supplement I recommend is Biotin, which is a naturally occurring B-vitamin. It renews the follicles and roots of the hairs that are already growing. It gives you thicker, fuller, and healthier hair!

 Tip#2:

Drink lots of water! Drinking water increases the amount of moisture in your hair. Water makes up approximately one fourth of the weight of a strand of hair and when hair has the proper amount of water, it will respond by being strong and shiny. Also, Water is just plain healthy for you! By upping your water intake, you are making your body healthier, which will make your hair healthier.chelsea crockett water

How to Prepare for Summer

Hey Insiders!

I don’t know if you have noticed, but SPRING IS HERE!! And that means that summer is just around the corner. You know what that means? Swimsuit season is getting closer and closer! If you are looking for ways to tone up and get in shape for summer, look no further!

1. Drink water before every meal: By drinking a glass or two of water before every meal, you are filling up your stomach and making yourself feel more full! When you feel full, you won’t eat as much, and if you don’t eat as much, you will lose weight!

2. Do some sort of cardio twice a week: Cardio is key to becoming a toned beach goddess. It gets your heart rate up and gets your muscles moving! Some cardio exercises that I recommend are jogging, jumping rope, and swimming!how to prepare for summer 

3. Snack healthy: Healthy snacking is a really great way to keep your cravings away and not make you eat as much at your meals! Some healthy snacks are fruit, nuts, or even veggie chips! 

Remember Insiders, losing weight is 80% how you eat and 20% exercising. This means that, although exercising is important to staying healthy, how you eat affects you even more. Now get off the couch, grab an apple, and get your fitness on!

Love Ya,

Chelsea
