We’re answering a much-asked question about our well-being practices, and sharing a few things we’re doing for ourselves on Labor Day.
- Running Prospect Park’s 5K loop in the opposite direction—and taking on the hills at the beginning AND the end
- Trying a new anti-wrinkle cream by SkinAuthority with HGF in it
- Making something macrobiotic (a new passion since visiting SHA Wellness Clinic) that I’ll pull out of 3 Bowls, a cookbook written by a monk at Zen monastery in the Catskills, where I learned how to meditate (and then kind of forgot)
- Cleaning my PVC-free yoga mat, which doesn’t get much laundering, I realize. Wondering if Pangea face cleanser is good for this?
- Trying to get through the new (supposedly very exciting) translation of Anna Karenina
- Trying some Mark Bittman-inspired salads for my Labor Day Eat-In to show support for Slow Food’s school lunch initiative (my sister-in-law is heading up this effort at Slow Food USA)
- Taking a long, final walk along the beach before we give up the keys to our summer house share in the North Fork
- Gorging on local peaches, tomatoes, and corn while they are still in season
- Slathering on Darphin’s Renewing Balm before bed to make up for way too much sun on my face this August.
- Will try going to sleep by 10:00 p.m. so I can be bright-eyed when my baby awakes at 6 a.m.
