Busy yet balanced

This is turning out to be a big, busy year for Jewel. Not only has the singer-songwriter, 38, been touring for her latest album, Jewel Greatest Hits, but this month she'll star as legendary country artist June Carter Cash, wife of Johnny Cash, in the Lifetime biopic Ring of Fire.

Her secret? She's balancing it all with a super healthy diet full of grass-fed meats, organic vegetables, and herbal home remedies. She also works out when she can, forgives herself when she can't—and is grateful every day for the little things. Here's her guide to happy living.
