If you plan to go to a NFL or major college game this year, stop by the bank for a significant withdrawal -- and perhaps a loan application if you like premium seating.
The notion of empathy as weakness is being subverted as mainstream America develops a reverence for gentleness and compassion. You see it everywhere.
Mindfulness is a committed, concerted, targeted practice -- a life skill. While pausing for a few deep breaths may make you feel better in the moment, practicing and training regularly will allow you to achieve long lasting results, brain health, and that calmer, less reactive place of being.
The fields of psychology, performance optimization, team building and leadership development are replete with female professionals. The old school mentality the NFL seeks to amend, and that Coach Carroll seeks to challenge could be altered even further by giving female advisors more earnest consideration.
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson just scooped up a seven-bedroom mansion in Seattle for $6.7 mi...
Winning sports franchises focus on product, customer and brand over time. Different people may describe these differently. But they are all talking about the same things. Except it's actually the same one thing because long-term success requires the three to be inextricably linked in a culture of winning.
Now entering his sixth year in the NFL, Bennett has emerged as one of the most prominent players in the league, notably putting himself on the map in 2013 as a key contributor to the defensive unit that ranked first in the NFL and went on to win Super Bowl XLVIII.
Even in our meditation-friendly decade, the specific technique that Don is shown using, chanting Om, is still widely -- but erroneously -- regarded as woo-woo.

While many people were focused on the Seahawks and Patriots during this Super Bowl, there were many other parts of the game setting off Fireworks.
Poor Pete Carroll. The Seattle Seahawks coach brings his team to the Super Bowl for the second year in a row, takes a calculated but unsuccessful risk, and gets painted by popular culture as a failure. Was it really the worst call ever?
As a Patriots fan, I say this: The Seahawks and their supporters should walk tall. Two great teams and two great coaches displayed the violent game's appeal.
After weeks of buildup, hours of pre-game shows and the festival of football itself, you'd think that we'd pretty much be over the Super Bowl by now. But no. In fact, it turns out, that when it comes to the Super Bowl, it's all over but the crunching.
What we often fail to see is that it is easy to second guess someone else (or ourselves) when failure happens. For example, if Russell Wilson had completed that pass, many people would have thought Pete Carroll and his offensive coordinator were geniuses.
We can all savor it, if we choose to. That's more easily done for viewers like me who, just a few hours earlier, had been noncommittal and teamless. Still, once the clock runs out on all the real-time Cinderella stories, we can conjure up glass slippers -- or cleats -- to fit any feet we want.
