A Wellness Weekend that you don’t have to travel for


Wellness is in the air this weekend. The New York Times hosts a series of well-being related Times Talks ($30/ticket) to celebrate  the publication of their first ever New York Times Magazine devoted entirely to health. You can hear Well blogger Tara Parker-Pope in conversation with Mehmet Oz and Deepak Chopra. Or check out the Foodie’s Dilemma panel with Bobby Flay, Alexandra Guarnaschelli, Daniel Humm, and Frank Bruni discussing how you balance an appetite for good food and good health.

Downtown, the Adidas Sport Performance Store (Broadway and Houston) presents GETfit this Sunday from 12:00-5:00 p.m. We’re not ususally fans of in-store promotional events that lure you in only to underdeliver on content and overdeliver on a sales pitch. But this event looks genuinely helpful, and lucrative for you, the attendee. Get free training and nutrition advice from top city fitness experts and nutritionists and walk away with five free personal training sessions or nutrition consultations.

And if all this sounds exhausting, try that other great weekend wellness activity, the afternoon nap.
