Best of Wit & Delight: Lifestyle and Wellness

Earlier this week, we shared our first “Best of Wit & Delight” post highlighting some of our most-read contributor articles in two categories—home design and relationships.

Today I’m highlighting fifteen more contributor articles in two additional categories—lifestyle and wellness—that resonated most with readers over the years. 

When I first started writing lifestyle and wellness articles on Wit & Delight fourteen years ago, the internet wasn’t really talking about things like self-care. We’ve seen a big shift since then, but I still think these kinds of topics sometimes get a bad rap for being “fluffy” or frivolous. I couldn’t disagree more.

When we approach each day and care for ourselves with intention, we can add so much value to our lives. I love that we’ve been able to share articles on these topics on Wit & Delight—ones that weave together the lighthearted, beautiful, mundane, and hard parts of life. I hope you enjoy revisiting them.
