Barre 3

1. 15 minutes of pilates really kicks your butt.

Even just a 10-minute barre workout can give you a toned lower body. By combining the toning of yoga, the corseting power of Pilates, and the benefits of ballet barre work, say goodbye to lower back pain. (Hanging out with SushiGirlATX and ThePetiteProfessional!)

2. Happiness is beautiful.

“Happiness is not necessarily getting everything you want. It’s enjoying the little things in life… I can do cartwheels. And I can do handstands! I couldn’t do that two years ago.” – Andie MacDowell on loving her age at 56 (and she looks amazing!).

4. It’s not okay to be tired.

“60% of women feel exhausted all the time and are just existing vs. living,” says Holly Phillips, MD. “2 week challenge: Sleep 8 h a night, do something physical for 30 m every day, and don’t eat anything in a box.”
