Think of your health as a bank account. Every decision is a deposit (like a good night’s sleep) or a withdrawal (like too many glasses of wine). Energy reserves are limited: we must decide how to best allocate our actions to get the best return on our wellness investment. In 2016, I published a book, hosted an online yoga channel, and oversaw a home construction project, all while leading classes and juggling the needs of my friends, family, and very demanding cat. It was an exciting year, but a physically taxing one. I didn’t look after my body like I should, skipping sleep to meet deadlines and spending too much time on my phone. I depleted my wellness piggy bank to the point where I found myself in bed over the holidays, too exhausted to actually enjoy the season. We’ve heard it a million times, but most busy women still haven’t mastered the art of self-care. Women are biologically designed to be caregivers, to put others first. We think we don’t deserve to nurture ourselves until everyone else’s needs have been met. We need to stop seeing self-care as selfish and see it as essential. I recently co-authored a book with Andra Sewalls entitled Sensible Wellness For Women. It addresses the challenges of self-care and suggests easy ways to up your vitality game. Self-care doesn’t have to be complicated or time consuming. We can make small choices every day to support our physical, emotional, and spiritual well being. A glass of water, a deep breath, a long hug, or a short walk go a long way in creating your best you. It’s really less about what we do and more about finally giving ourselves permission to put ourselves first. The first step in self-care is being mindful. Try this: close your eyes and take 3 long, deep breaths, in through your nose and out through your mouth. Now notice how your body feels. A few deep breaths do wonders for your mind and body. This issue is full of other ways to drop awesome into your energy account. Read about the advantages of probiotics, learn to send love to your joints for longevity and see eye health more clearly. Take the very best care of you this new year!

e’ve known her as obsessive overachiever Lisa Miller on NewsRadio and Dr. Abby Lockhart on ER. Now, Maura Tierney is taking risks and setting new goals as the complicated Helen Solloway on the drama The Affair, which won her a Golden Globe Award this year. The 51-year-old award-winning actress battled breast cancer several years ago, but she has not let it prohibit her from accomplishing her dreams. As millions of viewers were to find out, the drama series focused on four main characters and the emotional aftermath of their lives from an extramarital affair. Frequent scenes between various sheets don’t bother the bi-coastal resident—just don’t get caught in a crowded elevator with her. “I’m definitely claustrophobic, and sometimes I’ll get off a packed elevator in a very vocal, embarrassing and dramatic way.” Everyone has their quirks. TURNING POINT Tierney grew up in Boston with her three siblings, where her love for art was fostered. She recalls one specific class in high school as being the catalyst for her decorated acting career. “This great teacher had us read Pride & Prejudice,” she says. “I was so taken with that book. Since then, I’ve probably read it seven or eight times. Its feminist tone and beautiful, artistic language awakened a love of art within me.” With this passion in mind, Tierney went on to attend New York University, majoring in dance and drama. Tierney divides her life into two categories—before and after moving to Los Angeles. “I moved to LA in 1987, so that’s a big demarcation in my life coming from New York and Boston. It was a temporary move that’s turned into a 20-year stint. Career-wise, there were many turning points—getting a job on NewsRadio, getting a job on ER—and they affected my life in terms of who I was with, who I knew, where I lived, friends, all significant points in life,” she pauses for a moment. “Losing my father in 2009 was also a major event in my life. He was quite young, and it was very sad.” OWN WORST CRITIC After returning from Paris, where she performed with The Wooster Group, an experimental theatre company, Tierney’s life has been pulled in more directions than an ill-fitting sweater.

“Sometimes I get stressed out about the fact that I should be doing more work-wise, though I am fairly productive. It makes me anxious, because I look at an email and think I should be working on whatever it contains. I am my own worst critic when it comes to stress, because I don’t know how to cope with it exactly.” So, what is her go-to stress solution? “Everyone loves baths, right?” she laughs. “Not me. Soaking in a hot tub makes me anxious, because I think I should be out and doing something else. All you’re doing is sitting in there thinking about what you should be doing.” Instead, Tierney turns to books and exercise for stress management. Exercise also proves to be a time for listening pleasure. “Exercising is one confined time where I get to listen to music and move my body.” Workouts run the gamut from Pilates, running, hitting the gym, or “just living in New York, where I walk a lot.” Regular acupuncture for at least 20 minutes a day rounds it all out. “I would love to eat healthier, as well, but that’s hard sometimes when you’re busy. I think a holistic approach to well-being is the smartest thing. Life can be chaotic at times. I’m sure being happy is certainly better for just walking around in our world.” THE LITTLE THINGS “I’m definitely a sunset person, one hundred per cent!” she exclaims. “It’s just the way my body goes. One of my first memories growing up in Boston was having to go to bed after daylight savings, and I couldn’t understand why when it was still light out. I think I’m a night owl.” Yet, with 5 a.m. studio calls, quick morning routines consist of a good cup of coffee, walking her pug, Mack, and maybe eating an egg. “I’m not one of those people who feel you have to have breakfast. A report came out recently saying it’s okay if you don’t have breakfast. I felt very vindicated.” As a celebrity, Tierney is not new to social media. A social media-run society means life spent in front of a camera filled with thousands of watchful eyes, critics and scrutiny, often in a negative sense. “I don’t look at it, quite frankly,” she says. “When I was on ER, I went online once. It seems you go down this rabbit hole of what everyone has to say to you. I find that very unhealthy, so I simply don’t engage. It’s too dangerous buying into everyone’s opinion. Let them have it.” VM

MAURA’S TAKE ON FEELING SEXY IN YOUR OWN SKIN: WHEN DO YOU FEEL YOUR SEXIEST: It widely varies and depends so much on what it’s about. Sometimes I feel sexy in the morning

waking up next to someone I love. Sometimes I feel sexy when I make a strong decision at work. WHAT DO YOU FIND SEXY IN A MAN: Oh gosh—men are all so different…and great in so many ways. Compassion and a sense of humour are important to me. LAST LINGERIE INDULGENCE: I need to have my pretty things. I recently bought all new underwear from places like Cosabella. LAST TIME YOU DANCED WITH A PARTNER: Wow—I need to do that, I guess!
