Worried that we’re not as productive as we could be. Guilty that we procrastinate. We feel guilty that we don’t exercise more, eat right, have better bodies.

What if you don’t “fit in”? Even though I've been busy writing my next book – on living mindfully – allowing time for exercise remains a priority on my to-do list.

How to Be Mindful in an 'Unmanageable' World "Speed, distraction, and instant gratification are the enemies of nearly everything that matters most in our lives.

As part of my overarching commitment to health and wellness, I spend time daily on the treadmill for aerobic exercise. During today's workout, a commercial appeared on the small television screen nearby promising a new life: one of preferred shape, loveliness and happiness.
