reading list

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve done a reading list link-up, so some of this awesomeness is not necessarily from the last week but that doesn’t make it less worth reading!

Mindy Kaling’s Speech at Harvard Law School Class Day 2014 via Harvard Law School’s You Tube because I adore Mindy Kaling and this is further proof of why. She’s really fantastic. Why couldn’t anyone half this entertaining speak at any of my commencement ceremonies?

Registration is now open! via Healthy Living Summit because I would really love to see YOU at this year’s #hlsummit!

Our revised weekend structure will be giving all attendees multiple opportunities for hands-on learning. If you’re like us, you leave conferences with a whole list of blog improvements you want to make or look into, but by the time you get home, you’re overwhelmed and exhausted by all there is to do. With a variety of session lengths and styles at this year’s Summit, you’ll be able to start executing the ideas you’re excited about before the weekend is over.

10 Absurdly Famous People You Probably Don’t Know Enough About via Wait But Why because I don’t know much about the people in this piece, but I can tell you that Taylor Swift grew up on a Christmas tree farm, so I clearly have a lot to learn about some legit names in history. Plus, it’s all written a really fun and entertaining way. Go learn something.

My heart sank as I looked at the words “Henry Kissinger” written on the paper I was holding. I was in a “I somehow don’t know who this incredibly famous person is and I’m about to be horribly exposed for it” situation. There’s no feeling quite like it.

The case for treating sugar like a drug via Vox because I’m glad to see that the negative effects of sugar are starting to be a point of discussion, and curious where it will lead.

Sugar is the alcohol of a child. You would never let a child drink a can of Budweiser, but you would never think twice about a can of Coke. Yet what it does to the liver, what it does to the arteries, what it does to the heart is all the same. And that’s why we have adolescents with type 2 diabetes.

24 Health and Wellness Predictions That Could Change the Industry Forever via Medium because I think/hope Derek is pretty spot on with these.

Whether out of necessity or enlightenment, we’ve entered a time when “getting healthy” is more mainstream than ever. This exponential growth in health and wellness has already resulted in the growth of companies like Fitbit and Jawbone, movements like CrossFit and Zumba, and popular entertainment programs like “The Dr. Oz Show” and “The Biggest Loser.” But what’s next?

Getting My Priorities Straight via Mile Posts because it can be tough to balance all that life throws at us and decide what needs to come first.

Yes I’m busy, but I’m often busy with the WRONG things. We are as busy as we choose to be in reality – everything in life is a series of choices and sacrifices.

Starbucks:  The Art of Endless Transformation via Inc. because I have mucho respect for Howard Schultz and the brand he’s created.

Starbucks is a case study in the art of perpetual renewal while remaining true to your heritage. Its history epitomizes the arc of reinvention–the defiant journey from boom to bust to prosperity all over again. How Schultz keeps everybody on the bus of  reinvention is a tale of perseverance and passion, faith and fear.

9 Best Ways to Manage Race Day Nerves via RunToTheFinish because I am definitely a big bundle of nerves leading up to a goal race!

Perspective – Get a grip about what this race really means! Would a PR be great, of course!! Am I still just as valuable as a person if I have an off day or don’t run a certain time?! {rhetorical I hope}.  This one tip alone makes such a difference for so many people {finger point at myself} as it releases unnecessary pressure and often leads to  better performance.

Sit on That:  How Your Desk Job is Killing You via Sinful Nutrition because sitting is the new smoking, indeed.

Believe it or not we actually do more sitting during the day than we do sleeping. The average person spends 9.3 hours sitting and only 7.7 hours sleeping. 9 hours on the baby got back you busted out with all dem squats! All I’ve got to say is all this sitting is such a crock of……….

3 Mindful Breathing Techniques For Optimal Wellness via Energy We Bring because taking time throughout the day to focus on your breath is a total game changer. Seriously.

You see, breath is our LIFE FORCE! Positive changes in the body and mind are brought about by the energy known in Sanskrit as Prana (life-giving force/energy of the universe). This primary energy is everything we see and feel in the physical, and everything we think.
