Michael Roizen, MD
What to Eat When

When focusing on eating for health, our attention turns to addressing the “what” part of eating. We follow an array of diets, all designed to help us lose weight, increase longevity, and improve our quality of life. But, according to Dr. Michael Roizen, we spend little time on the “when” part of the equation. Dr. Roizen believes that when it comes to nutrition, timing is everything. When we eat is as important as what we eat. He discusses when we should eat for optimal health, to minimize stress, and to best manage daily situations. Dr. Roizen is chief wellness officer of the Cleveland Clinic, and is the author of four #1 New York Times bestsellers and nine overall bestsellers. His new book is What to Eat When.

Little did aspiring actor, Burt Ward, know that learning martial arts in addition to his mental and athletic prowess would change his life forever. A star athlete as a teen-ager, Burt had everything necessary to be a true boy wonder, and a boy wonder he became. Burt was cast as Robin, opposite Adam West, in the Batman TV series, a show that became an overnight sensation. Burt and Adam made personal appearances together and were featured on the cover of Life Magazine. Years after the end of the TV series, Burt switched gears and went from Caped Crusader to Canine Crusader. Driven by his love for animals, Burt and his wife, Tracy, created Gentle Giants Rescue and Adoptions, now the largest giant breed dog rescue in the world.

Jen Sincero
You’re A Badass

Plenty of people wake up on the first of the year determined to join a gym, come up with a consistent workout routine, and get themselves into shape. The committed triumph, because they understand that they have to work continuously to maintain fitness — you can’t just get fit and quit. The same is true, Sincero argues, for strengthening the muscles of badassery. Jen explains that in order to maintain what it takes mentally and emotionally to achieve success, you have to go to “the spiritual gym,” which can consist of a number of things depending on the person. Jen is an author, success coach, and motivational speaker. She is the creator of the Badass book series including her most recent, You Are a Badass Every Day.

Matt Haig
A Nervous Planet

Technology today connects us more than ever before, but this modern world may be messing with our minds and doing damage to our mental health. We constantly check emails and messages, and we’re pressured to present the best version of ourselves, while tallying our likes and comparing to the accounts of others. According to Matt Haig, it’s no surprise that the rates of stress and anxiety are rising dramatically and that even though we are more connected, many are feeling more alone. Matt discusses how we can stay human and sane in an increasingly technological and anxiety-inducing world. Matt is the author of Notes on A Nervous Planet.
