You're Worth It: Celebrating The Whole You

This post is sponsored by Stonyfield yogurt and Prana, but all opinions are my own.

Do you ever have the feeling that life is moving at such a rapid pace that you don't truly take time to enjoy it? Often, I reflect on my days and it's always off to the next task, next location, another line item to check off on my never ending list. I look at my kids and notice how much they are growing right before my eyes. I want to take a mental snap shot on the priceless, crazy moments that happen throughout our week. It brings me such joy to focus on each of them and where they are in their childhood - as they say the days are long, but the years are short. My kids are so free, innocent, full of love and laughter. They have the uncanny ability to see the world as a beautiful place, without a care in the world.

When was the last time you had that feeling? That life was so rich with adventure, free from the negative and you were able to toss away your cares, if only for an hour...

Living by the sea is therapy for me and when I'm near the water, it brings such peacefulness to my life. Suddenly the stress melts away, I feel so energized and ready to take on anything. I love SUP and that is one of our go to activities during the summer, but I've had the desire to learn to surf for a long time. I'm pumped that this is the summer that I'm going to try it and of course you want to look good too! I'm loving this Lorelei Sun Top from Prana - it's perfect for hanging at the beach, indulging in a little SUP or surfing. The bright electric orange color reminds me of sunny days, dancing in the surf and soaking in every ounce of playtime that I can.

What I love about Prana is that they are committed to seeking out materials from sustainable sources, the people that make their clothing are treated fairly, and the processes they use improve the industry as a whole. As a Mom, runner and a consumer that makes me feel good about wearing Prana's fun and stylish clothing. 

I'm so happy that Prana and Stonyfield are pairing up on this campaign - two companies that truly care about making their products from organic, sustainable sources (Stonyfield is now a certified B corporation).

As a marathoner, I'm very focused on what I put into my body for maximum performance and recovery. After a run, I really look forward to cooling down, stretching and then grabbing a bowl of Stonyfield organic whole milk yogurt. Paired with chunks of granola and colorful berries, it makes a perfect post run snack.

As the days grow longer and summer makes it's long awaited appearance, I will be running a lot and training for a fall marathon. That means lots of delicious Stonyfield yogurt for me and the whole family! I'm also psyched to sport the Lorelei Sun Top from Prana.
