Nealy Fischer FOOD BLOGGER “SOMEONE’S IN THE KITCHEN,” PAGE 106 In 20 years, I’d like to be…running a huge lifestyle brand and authoring a few more books. Also, doing handstands and having enough energy to change my grandchildren’s diapers. The key to my personal well-being is…taking a break from technology for a full day once a week. My brain is constantly in overdrive. Joshua Wheeler, WRITER “THE CALL OF THE WILD,” PAGE 69 In 20 years, I’d like to be…on a ranch in New Mexico, watching the desert become grassland again, and writing for newly discovered cosmic civilizations a history of how we humans averted climate apocalypse and also fixed all sorts of systemic inequality. The biggest thing I learned in 2019 was… you can’t unplug when evil abounds. One thing I wish I could cut out…

q this month we wondered…

When I was in Vail, Colorado, and ski pros came down the slopes with torches. Fireworks lit up the mountains at midnight. SABRINA PRATO Port-au-Prince, Haiti The year I visited my daughter in Hong Kong. We walked down to the waterfront and watched a light show, shoulder to shoulder with more people than I’ve ever seen. At the stroke of midnight, everyone pulled out confetti and Silly String, and we couldn’t even see each other through it all. CHARLOTTE ELLIOTT Nebo, North Carolina My first New Year’s celebration with my boyfriend. We danced, mingled, and laughed for about 20 minutes before he got sick and had to go back to his dorm room for medicine. He crawled into bed, needing the room silent and dark. I stayed with him—but no countdown, no ball drop,…

here we go!

I THINK OF A NEW YEAR as a time to take stock of my life and hit the reset button where necessary. Not with the goal of perfection, but simply seeking to always be—and do—just a little bit better. That’s the attitude behind this month’s look at wellness and improving your health: No need for perfect, just that little bit better. For some, that may mean eating one extra serving of veggies each day, for example, to instantly better their diet. By the way, if you live in a place where fresh produce is hard to come by, be sure to turn to page 81; you’ll be inspired by three women who found their way out of a food desert. Another chance to be better: Indulge in whatever form of movement…

kelly mcgonigal

Kelly McGonigal, PhD, research psychologist and lecturer at Stanford University, is a passionate student of the mind and an unabashed believer in human potential. Part scientist, part storyteller, she translates the complexities of neuroscience into inspirational yet practical advice that helps people lead healthier, happier, more creative, abundant lives. In her 2013 TED Talk, “How to Make Stress Your Friend” (viewed more than 21 million times), and her 2015 book, The Upside of Stress, she makes a compelling, counterintuitive case for embracing stress as a force that can energize, connect, and strengthen us. Her latest book, The Joy of Movement, is what McGonigal calls a love letter to exercise, blending research, social anthropology, and first-person narratives of exercisers who discovered not just endorphin highs but also their higher selves. She…
