MINDBODYGREEN: At mindbodygreen, it takes a 360 degree approach to wellness that incorporates mental, physical, spiritual, emotional and environmental well-being – because it believes these pillars of wellness are vital and interconnected. Hence mindbodygreen (one word, not three).

It also believes that wellness is a shared journey, which is why it has a community of voices on mindbodygreen offering unique perspectives to help you cultivate a life of greater meaning, connection, fulfillment and purpose.

On mbg, you’ll find amazing free content, video classes and trainings, and coverage from our award-winning revitalize events.

And after almost 10 years as leaders in wellness, it thinks the time has come to expand the conversation, starting with its new mantra: You. We. All.

This means YOU need to take care of your mind, eat nourishing food, cultivate your spirit, and move your body. By caring for yourself, you can show up to create positive change in the world. But WE are all in this together, and being truly well involves your family, your neighbors and your community. And what might be most critical for all of us, especially now, is to care for the planet we ALL inhabit, help others get access to wellness, connect to purpose, and recognize we are all spiritually connected.

So take inspiration from everything you read, listen and watch on mbg. Start with yourself, then spread to your community, and expand to the world. There are no “right” ways to have a wellness journey; just dive in and start exploring. Ultimately, you know best what works for you and your community.

HOUZZ: Houzz started with a house.

When founders Adi and Alon remodeled their home, they started the way those projects often do: with a tall stack of magazines and referrals for home professionals from people they knew. But after those piles of torn out pages failed to make their dream a reality, they felt stuck. There had to be a better way.

So they built Houzz. A place to browse and save beautiful home photos. A place to find the right design and construction professionals. A place to connect with others who have been there too.

Houzz started as a side project but has become a community of more than 40 million homeowners, home design enthusiasts and home improvement professionals.

And when you are ready to start your project, Houzz is the best way to get inspired, discover products and to find and collaborate with the perfect architect, designer or contractor.
