Sleep

 

New news in the world of rest and rejuvenation! After two years of intensive study, the National Sleep Foundation just released modified recommendations for sleep by age group. All children categories (with the exception of newborns) and teens had their sleep hours widened by at least an hour, though all of these statistics ultimately depend on the individual.

Head-Spacing.

“Fire all your guns at once and explode into space.” – Steppenwolf, Born to Be Wild. 

Hello. Are you thinking what I’m thinking?

brain

Sure you are. You just don’t know it yet. But, you do know what I mean. Are you having the same revolutionary inner thoughts that I do? Are your neural pathways, or whatever, firing, or whatever in the synaptic patters and places creating the faces and spaces that mine do? Is your inner mind your inner mine?

Does the thought of re-invention scare you? Continue reading

Aging Gracefully

Aging Gracefully:
Noticing and Choosing What You Want As You Grow Older

men

A few months ago, I did a panel, and follow-up interview with Prevention Magazine (a magazine which I love, by the way) on aging gracefully. How funny to find myself being a voice for that…

On the panel, as others talked about diet, exercise and how to look young, I found myself getting emotional as I thought about my grandfather, Nana, who had just passed away. I realized, while sitting on the stage, that aging gracefully for me meant living with dignity, being of service, and cherishing the relationships in my life. Continue reading

Versions of You.

I’m in India.

It’s 2005, or something very close to that, I am 35, but my mind is much older.

As per circumstance, happenstance and the unusual, I am here in the dusty, smelly and undeniably magical streets of Delhi through a very strange, unexpected and mostly serendipitous series of events, that even I could not have calculated or created a few weeks ago.

But that is how my life tends to be unfolding. A series of absurd, extreme and mostly exceptional plot twists. You would think I would have figured this out by now. Continue reading

Screen Shot 2015-01-05 at 2.26.36 PM

We’ve all been stuck in the doldrums before. We can’t think of anything that tastes good. There aren’t any movies we want to see and nothing on the radio catches our ear. When you’re stuck in that lackluster spot, it can be equally tough to find inspiration for your own work. The thing is, for all the times inspiration hits us out of the blue, we forget that we can also get up and go seek it out! Before you run out of steam… some places to get inspired! Continue reading

Newture.

Close your eyes.

Say hello to tomorrow. Go on. Give it a hug.

After all, it is all yours. You own this. It won’t bite, unless you intended it to do that. Everything about it, every nuance, every new ounce, and every vibration are all pieces of you. In fact, you know those motions you are making now? Both the positive and negative thoughts and simple slightest undetectable movements will ripple into eternity and create the waves of tomorrow that will either give you a full-on wicked surf or ruthlessly drown you.

Interesting. I can certainly guarantee it looks absolutely nothing like you thought it would. That’s always the case. Don’t stress. Continue reading
