Do This Simple 10-Minute Workout for a Lean Body Fast, Says Trainer

As I've noted several times, if you want a lean, fit body—with increased muscle mass, more strength, and less body fat—you need to follow a basic checklist. For starters, you absolutely need to eat at a calorie deficit with a healthy diet. Consider it a bonus that doing so isn't just great for your waistline. One new study just published in the journal Circulation found that pairing exercise and cutting 200 calories from your daily diet (which is the equivalent of roughly three eggs, a single glass of whole milk, or nearly one glazed doughnut) will drastically improve your heart and vascular health.

Surprised by Racism

I grew up in New York City in the 1970s. Was it a racist place? Probably, but that is not what I experienced for the most part. I’m not saying there wasn’t bigotry or misinformation. In fact, it was inevitable that there was. My parents came to the United States...

The Unromantic Truth Behind Creativity Myths

Common myths about creativity undermine hard work, deny agency, and dissuade people from nurturing creative ideas before they're even sown. Creativity is often thought to be a fixed trait, but it is a learned skill. It is not spontaneous, but rather, developed and nurtured over time. Counter to popular belief,...

A Balancing Act: The Struggle to Maintain Balance With PD

Now and then, especially as I’ve gotten older, my gait can be a bit unsteady. I’ve been known to drift a little to the left while walking. As we age, our balance, steadiness, strength, and agility decrease, and our chances of falling increase. For people with Parkinson’s disease (PD), balance, walking, and gait are often major issues due to both motor and nonmotor symptoms, making them even more susceptible to falls and other injuries.

Forget winter sports – a trail running trip to Verbier makes for an exhilarating thrill ride

It was the first glacier I’d seen, up close that is, from the sky-skimming terrace at Cabane FXB Panossière in the Swiss Alps at Verbier. Corbassière Glacier makes quite the impression – something akin to the overview effect, when astronauts look back down at our blue marble in the void and become overwhelmed.Perhaps that’s a little dramatic but then, running along part of the famous Verbier-St Bernard Trail will do that to a person. I say running; I really mean sporadically jogging, mostly limping, always spluttering. What a reward at the top, though. First, that view, then the sight of...

Yeah, I’m Gonna Have To Call You Back: Team USA

This past week has stirred up drama in the Tokyo Olympics, and it starts with USA’s Gymnastics team. Simone Biles, who now has 7 Olympic medals and 25 world championship medals tying her for most decorated gymnast, explained after her vault performance that she would be withdrawing from the event. In the following days, she also withdrew from the uneven bars and floor exercise final. Biles cited her reasoning for the break to be mental health matters. The internet decided that wouldn't be a good enough reason to withdraw from the competition, and they began to rip her apart on social media.

S. Raekwon’s “Darling” is an anthemic, intimate folk song

On his new single “Darling”, S. Raekwon — New York’s Steven Raekwon Reynolds — walks a fine line between the intimate and the anthemic. “I wanna be held in your arms,” he sings: his voice is glassy and immediate, possessive of the confidence of someone uttering sweet nothings. It’s the stuff of folk song — or, it would be, if not for all the pure resplendence behind him. “Darling” is awash in Phil Collins-y guitar licks, angelic harmonies, a gleaming, pulsating synth line. It builds to a point that’s almost overwhelming — until, in its final moments, everything drops away. Never overstaying its welcome, it’s an appealing exercise in romantic restraint. It’s the first taste of Where I’m At Now, S. Raekwon’s debut album, out October 8 on Father/Daughter Records.

Harnessing The Power Of No

Sometimes when I look back on the time before, it feels like someone else’s life, not mine. Two years ago, I was racing through the glittering French Riviera, packed in a tent with a zillion industry movers and shakers in a meeting room at the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity. Apple’s vice president of marketing communications, Tor Myhren, gave a presentation I will never forget. In it he said the most powerful word in his arsenal is “no”. He explained that “no” has a ricochet effect and fuels the octane and power of yes. Because when you do say “yes” to take on a project, task, job or encounter, it means you have the space and ability to deliver your best.
