Last night WRNY had the chance to attend a talk at the Mind Body Green offices in DUMBO where the main topic of conversation was all about simplifying health. The founder of the vitamin company SmartyPants, along with Dr. Woodson Merrell, author of The Detox Prescription, spoke personally on the topic. They discussed the things that make for a healthy life which include not only exercise, sleep, meditation and a proper diet, but also connectivity and love. You’re probably feeling that connectivity and love part more than ever if you’re pregnant for the first time, no?

Becoming pregnant means that you have become connected to a tiny individual that is growing inside of you. Tiny individuals you want to be the healthiest version of you for. Tiny individuals that it’s our job to teach how to live green. Because our world is now their world too, and don’t you want it to be awesome for them? So to round out our week, here are a few of our favorite posts we came across over the last few days from some of our favorite green resources.

But then we're reminded of all the awesome mamas who live here and remember we're exactly where we should be.
