Welcome to Feel Good Five, where we ask people to share the stuff that helps them feel their best.

Hello and welcome to our inaugural Feel-Good Five column featuring Jeannette Ogden (aka the wellness influencer behind @ShutTheKaleUp on Instagram). This is a safe space where we ask our favorite follows about a few of the things that make them, well, feel good.

Jeannette first started @ShutTheKaleUp to create an honest space where she could share her journey towards having a healthy relationship with food (and herself). Her almost 300K followers have fallen in love with little glimpses into her grocery hauls, yoga flows, healthy recipe ideas, and daily life with Instagram (and real-life) husband, AJ; their 3-year-old son, Elliott Grey; and their second "bub" on the way.

Wellness and self-care look different for everyone, but here's what it looks like for Jeannette.

Honey Mama's Chocolate

For the ultimate chocolate craving, look no further. I've been buying this stuff for years because it's one of a kind and kits my sweet tooth unlike any other chocolate does.

Manicures (and Grocery Shopping)

Taking the day to drive up to LA and get my nails done at my favorite spot, Color Camp, always makes me feel like a new woman. Stopping by Erewhon and spending way more than I should on groceries helps a little too.

Hitting the Gym

I love to start my day off with a sweat. Whether it's doing spin at SoulCyle, HIIT Training at The 12 Movement, or going for a walk around my neighborhood, I feel at my best if I just get out and move my body.

Gua Sha Facial Massage

This is something that is sort of new for me but has changed my self-care game entirely. A little bit of Gua Sha before bed, after my skincare routine, gives my face a natural glow. Shoutout to @britta_beauty for showing me the light.

P.S.: Jeannette has an entire Instagram highlight dedicated to Gua Sha.

Buying Plants

Sometimes I go out for coffee with a friend, other times I go out for coffee and BUY new friends (for the house). We used to love buying new furniture all the time, but buying plants is way cheaper.
