We may not be able to view our world through time-lapse technology like filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg, but we can slow down and tune into our senses while outside in nature. Our five senses are the keys that unlock the door to the now moment- and through that doorway, peace resides.
I guess I only know this. The vendors keep dishing dietary epiphanies in bite-sized, moronic morsels almost every day. We never seem to see the elephant in the room and most of us can't seem to wait to get in line.
I hope that one day a veteran can walk into any VA hospital or health care facility and be given options for any affliction that they're facing without being put on a waiting list. The government needs to help veterans get access to health care that they deserve.
Eating a clean and healthy diet doesn't have to mean walking around with a growling stomach all day. Unfortunately, that's the perception most people have toward low-calorie diets.
I may have to work a little harder to fill my lungs with air, but the effort makes me appreciate every breath I take.
Some of you correctly noted that there really is nothing funny about trauma to the face and head. There was a tangential point to make about our societal idiocy when it comes to quick-fix-weight-loss-by-any-means, and I made it. But then what? What comes after the... "guffaw"?

I hope the races we run for cancer aren't just yearly events we participate in. I hope the stories of triumph and defeat do not only receive a response of joy and tears but perhaps action and a change of mindset. I hope we don't become desensitized to cancer.

A couple of weeks ago, my sister got hit in the face with a horse, and the pounds have been dropping off ever since. It seemed unfair to keep this revolutionary weight loss breakthrough to ourselves, so I am writing to share it.
What good is a lateral raise if you can't do a proper press? What good is a fancy business logo if you haven't found your first paying customer? What good is a better guitar if you haven't built the habit of practicing each day?

In a rare demonstration that there is intelligent life down here, we have recognized that if this is what millions of years of evolutionary biology came up with, we were unlikely to do better. From whence, the answer to the sleepaway camp dilemma: Put your initials in your underwear! If you identify your own, you don't have to recognize everyone else's.
Next time you are around horses, breathe deeply and get quiet inside. Tune in to them from your heart and you will feel the depth of these magnificent animals. If you open your heart and soul, you will understand why some of us have a thing about horses.
While most of the gender differences are explained by gender differences in practicing medicine, the study highlights a larger issue.
