Build Thee a Capillary!

Here’s some news you can use: exercise doesn’t just keep your weight down or make you look trim or give you sleek muscles. It upgrades your body from the inside out. Every minute of exercise you give your body starts a serious conversation between your muscles, heart, skeletal system and all of the internal systems…

When stuff is hard, exercise helps. Always.

The workflow at Every48 so far has gone something like this: I wake up, I have a theme in mind for a post, I write for a half hour or so, and I schedule the post to publish at 10 a.m. U.S. Pacific time every weekday. That doesn’t leave a ton of time for major-league…

Meme Day Friday! Today’s takeaway: Environment is everything.

The book (and its companion, geared a bit more towards men but with the same overall message, “Younger Next Year”) emphasizes the importance of exercise, good nutrition, and living with a purpose, with community,…

The January stats report

How do you measure progress? If there’s one thing we learned last night at Super Bowl 48, it’s that statistics don’t always tell the whole story.
