Best Meditation Apps As Featured on Today Show

Have you tried to meditate but find it really challenging? Are you looking for an easy way to meditate? Or, are you looking for meditations for weight loss? My latest article for the Today Show highlights the different aspects of the most popular meditation apps. And, if you’re looking for me to walk you through some Step It Up with Steph meditations, check out all of my video meditations for the Today Show here.


Are you looking for ways to meditate in Chicago? If you can’t make it to a Chicago meditation studio, or to a yoga class in Chicago, try out these meditation apps! And, no matter where you live in the country, these meditation apps are available to be downloaded right to your phone. I have personally used all of these meditation apps, and as a women’s health and fitness expert and a women’s weight loss coach, I inspect everything before I recommend things. I really liked these meditation apps to use throughout the day and also as a nighttime meditation and a morning meditation.

For my weight loss clients, I suggest meditating at least once a day with a meditation app. It’s important to feel connected to yourself (to your mind, body, and spirit) because this will help you to relax and unwind. When we are stressed, we’re more receptive to storing fat around the mid-section. As a weight loss coach for women, it’s my goal to help women feel more in charge and in control of their choices, bodies, and weight.

Memorial Day Healthy BBQ Swaps As Seen On Fox Chicago

Confused about what to avoid vs what to eat at your next BBQ? Health & Fitness Expert Stephanie Mansour is here to share with us easy replacements for your favorites, including healthier and less fattening meats, desserts, chips, dips, and more!

Be a conscious consumer when you’re at those holiday weekend parties. When you go for the alcoholic drink, instead of using mixers of pop or juice, try flavored water, sparkling water, watermelon water, or plain water and adding your own lemon or lime juice to it! This trick will help you cut down on your sugar intake while still enjoying a drink.

When getting your protein in with meats, try a healthier relish to flavor your protein, like Slawsa. It has no preservatives, and significantly less sodium than ketchup and dill relish. Another protein option is to grab the grilled wings, instead of fried wings. Chicken wings are really popular and it’s likely that you’ll be able to find them grilled or baked, instead of fried.

For chips, make your own with sweet potatoes! You can slice them up and bake them in your oven at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes. This is a great alternative for regular potato chips that are loaded with salt and oils.

When looking to buy dips for your party, try making your own with greek yogurt and herbs. You’ll eliminate all the unnecessary additives and preservative this way, and can flavor the dip just how you like it! Another great option for a dip is a flavored hummus that you can dip vegetables into.

Desserts can be traps when you’re having fun at parties at want something a little sweet. Instead of going for the puddings and cakes, try making fruit kabobs and have some nuts on the side with them. A great way to add a little extra protein with your sweet treat!
