Giselle Fernandez, 61: Retirement Is Not in My Vocabulary

You’re Probably Dehydrated. Here’s What to Do.

If you’re reading this, you’re probably dehydrated. In fact, according to the National Library of Medicine, “75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.” This is particularly bad because the human body is “55% to 65% of water.” Just drinking water probably isn’t cutting it, either.

The world is on the move once again, and after 2 years of geographic stasis, we are so very grateful. However, this is happening along with well-publicized travel frictions caused by an industry trying its best to scale up to the challenge of some pretty vast pent-up demand.  Sarah is...

Carl Honoré, 54: Living Bolder

The author of four books has a new one, Bolder: Making the Most of Our Longer Lives, which is about living longer— how we can do it better and feel better about doing it. It’s his rallying cry against the last form of discrimination that dare speak its name:...
