While you are traveling, make choices that involve activity, says Beth Kageyama, a group fitness instructor in Encino, Calif. She tells her clients, for one thing, to walk around the airport terminal while waiting for a flight. “Why would you sit before you get on the ...
The Virtual Search for IRL Empathy

Are You Ready for the Feminine Revolution?
I have been told that I am too sensitive or too emotional. I’ve been told that I use too many capital letters. I have been told repeatedly that my emails scared someone, that I should tone it down to appear professional. (I was even named “Most Likely to Clap Her Hands for No Reason” in my high school yearbook.)
It’s true: I have always been enthusiastic and had more obvious feelings than others in a room. That’s why I loved reading The Feminine Revolution: 21 Ways to Ignite the Power of Your...

Live Your Own Life: The Journey of Paralympic Athlete Saylor O’Brien
While watching the 2018 Olympic Games in PyeongChang on television, I wondered how the athletes got started and how they had the perseverance to train long and hard enough to compete for their country. In Park City, Utah, some of my questions were answered by a teenage competitor.
Some might imagine that a person with spina bifida might not be top at her sport, sailing downhill at high speeds and winning medals.
But they would be wrong.
I had the honor to ski with 14-year-old Saylor O’Brien, ...

Want to ski? These adaptive winter sports programs are ready to help!
Growing up, I watched skiers at Park City Mountain glide down the slopes on monoskis and with bright orange bibs that said "visually impaired." I was a terrified and athletically challenged skier as a child and felt inspired by the fact that people who spent their days in wheelchairs, or who couldn't see, could do this sport. If they weren't giving up, I was going to figure it out.
Enter National Ability Center Instructor Patricia Stokes, who explained to me that we all need adaptions to ski....
