The Ever Better Challenge, Part 4: Consider the Past, Continue What Works

It’s been a long 21 days.

So far, I have lost a pound

The Ever Better Challenge, Part 1: Build a Plan, Change a Habit

I’m typing this on Monday morning, although I suppose that’s not a very meaningful detail. How about: I’m typing this on Monday morning—without the aid of the chocolate-hazelnut croissant I treat myself to at the beginning of each week. Why? Because today is the first day of my Ever Better Challenge, which is no desserts for 30 days in the hope of losing a little weight. (You might be thinking

6 Ways to Make Your Commute More Productive

Whether you drive, bus, bike, walk, or segway to work, the average American spends more than 100 hours a year commuting. That’s more than the average two-week vacation. Who would consciously choose a car over sunny Croatia? No one. All those hours add up. For example, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, there were a little more than 139 million workers commuting in 2014. At an average of 26 minutes
