What Rachel Canning is going through is something I went through too. A lot of adults did and honestly, I would bet that your parents went through it as well. It is called the "sh*tty teenage" stage.

Why have we made exercising -- at least the way we do it in the places that have come to be known as "health clubs" -- such an awful experience? It's a question I had time to mull recently on my 14-hour plane ride back from Seoul, where I was for the launch of HuffPost Korea. While I was there I was amazed at their practice of Kouksundo -- a practice that combines meditation, breathing and martial arts and has been shown to boost productivity and reduce anxiety and stress -- which is so different from how we approach fitness in America's temples of physical well-being, populated by people who often seem miserable, joylessly going through the strenuous motions so they can check off the exercise box on that day's to-do list and get the heck out of there. If we're going to redefine success to include well-being, we also need to redefine getting in shape to include mental and soul fitness.

Embiid is currently sidelined with a stress fracture in his back, and no one knows how long it will keep him off the court -- he may end up missing the opening weekend of the NCAA tournament. The 7-foot phenom is 19 years old with his entire basketball career ahead of him. Embiid, the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year and a potential number one pick in June's NBA Draft, is stuck in a precarious situation. Right now, 10th-ranked Kansas is one of just a handful of teams capable of winning a national championship. Yet if Embiid returns to the game too soon, he risks damaging his back irreversibly.
