Avocado toast is so trendy, it has even been said that it’s one of the reasons millennials can’t afford homes! All joking aside, the health benefits of avocados are undeniable, and who doesn’t want to eat pretty, Instagrammable food?

Sourdough toast, topped with pesto, burrata, fresh basil and avocado roses 🥑 YUM!! I get asked all the time, what I use to take my photos, so here's a few tips and tricks! 😃 1. I use my @samsunggulf Galaxy S8+ to take all my photos. There is a "food mode" which is fantastic for close up food shots 🍔 2. I use an app called "Snapseed" to edit all my photos. It's very simple and easy to use 😍 3. Natural light is your friend. Seek out the best areas with natural light, like a window, to take your photos ☀️ If taking photos in low light, the Galaxy S8+ automatically adjusts the light to give you brighter photos 🙌 Hope that was helpful! Let me know if you have any other questions and I'd be happy to answer them 🤗 #squirrelroses #GalaxyS8 #ad

Although meditation has long since been used to relieve stress, Instagram-worthy interiors and a soft, soothing playlist has made meditation spread like wildfire. And with apps like Headspace, you can train your mind for a healthier, happier life anywhere you go.

Taking meditation to the next level, laughter meditation reminds people not to take themselves so seriously. A good laugh now and then has been said to give you a mental boost similar to meditation, and people everywhere are jumping on board. USANA even had a laughter meditation at our International Convention this year!

With books like The Power Of Now and You Are Here, mindfulness has become both a trend, and a powerful tool. Connecting to the present moment, without being bogged down with fears from the past or future, is a fad that actually works.
