Issue #122 – Be Here Now: Ice Meditation
Last week we found ourselves blaming work stress and global dread for the reason we ditched our exercise regime and taking care of our health in general. So, we vowed to engage in something relatively painless. We hereby swear to dance for a minimum of 30-minutes per day, every day in the month of April. Several friends said they’re down for the challenge. We started early and have already danced at our desks, kitchens, and living rooms. No excuses. No gym membership required. Want to join us? Here’s our first TW. Dance Challenge playlist. It’s old and it’s an hour long but if you have a great playlist please share with us here.
The What List

by Gina Pell + Amy Parker
100% Editorial picks. No pay for play. Ever.
The Sweet. Most people know about the dangers of sugar but we’ve also avoided agave and stevia, which claim to be “natural” despite the fact that both are processed. Today stevia gets a bad rap from Op-Ed columnist, David Leonhardt in The New York Times.
The Sour. Looking for your next juicy page-turner? Try Tangerine, aTalented Mr. Ripley-style thriller noir about college besties in the 50s in Tangiers. We just started it so we can’t vouch for it 100% but it’s a #1 best seller with a movie already in production starring Clooney and Johannsen.
The Ice. Do you find morning meditation a difficult practice to keep consistent? Hawaiian male model, Travis Trigger Smith, has another method for staying present but we have a feeling it only works best in Hawaii.
The Age. A few weeks ago our Content Chief, Gina Pell, was on a panel with a stellar group of experts called The Age of Ageless at SXSW. The audio has just gone up on Soundcloud. It’s lengthy but if you find yourself on a long drive and want to hear about how to stay relevant and productive from now until the end of your days, listen here.
The Grey. We fell in love with The Depressed Cake Shop’s tagline, “Where there is cake there is hope, and there is always cake.” And when we learned about their mission to create a platform to raise awareness about mental health issues and create safe places for conversation through baking, we fell in love all over again. Poke around on their site and see what they’re all about.
