What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Are you a stressed out mom? Are you constantly overwhelmed? If so, I bet you try to "power through", refusing to let stress hold you back. But pretty soon you're not sleeping well, your willpower is tapped out, you're eating horribly, and you're turning into a terrible parent and spouse. And where is all this extra weight coming from? 

We grossly underestimate the physical power of stress on our bodies. 

In this episode, we're talking:

  • acute vs. chronic stress
  • the impact that stress hormones have on your body
  • why being on a diet or doing a hard training program could be the tipping point 
  • tips for managing your stress better
  • understanding my Stress & Self Care Activity Pyramid
