Motivation, Part 2

By Joey Velez Healthy Lifestyles Contributor John Quincy Adams once said, “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more, you are a leader.” Understanding what motivates you can help you get through the tough times. It can also help you see the bigger picture, and finally, motivation can help you become dedicated and totally focused on a particular goal. However, for those of you holding a leadership role, there are times where it is about more than motivating yourself, you must motivate your team as well. Discovering ways to develop and enhance the motivation of others can be the determining factor in how successful you and your team can become. There a

Diet, Fitness & Nutrition: The Secrets to Living Longer

By Mark Wine Healthy Lifestyles Contributor In a world of stress, panic, cultural disdain and artificial everything our bodies and minds are being eaten alive. We carry phones around with us 24/7 that send radio-active waves constantly; we use cellular streaming that is basically a microwave; we have so much demand for food that food could be labeled toxic; our governments allow lobbyists and billionaires to control and dictate how things are run; and worst of all, our media has turned in to a propaganda nightmare that creates panic. Where does this leave us? As more and more citizens become enlightened to good health practices and the political evils in the world smarter choices are being

Practicing an Attitude of Gratitude

By Jyoti Paintel Spirituality Contributor "Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart, it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude." “Winnie the Pooh” - A.A. Milne Typing these words into my laptop and writing this article on gratitude during the current world chaos was in itself a practice in discipline and focus. The novel coronavirus pandemic has dramatically changed our lives in a matter of weeks, leaving many of us with only uncertainty and fear. As I write from the confines of my shelter, practicing the attitude of gratitude at a time like this seems paradoxical. With fear and dread being served up as the daily plat du jour now, it takes real determination and accep

Host a Smashing Virtual Happy Hour (Getting Smashed is Optional)

The coronavirus has turned drinks at the bar into drinks at our homes, but that does not mean you have to drink alone. This past Monday, on a whim, Jackie Summers, a liquor-brand owner, put out a call on Twitter for people to join him for a virtual cocktail hour. Since many of his friends in the hospitality industry were suddenly out of work, he felt that this was the perfect way to encourage social distancing while giving people a much-needed outlet to socialize. 15 people attended the event, which he organized with his friend, Daniella Veras. The next day, over 100 participants logged in. He plans on hosting virtual happy hours regularly until the coronavirus crisis resolves. It’s understa

Shanghai Might Save the (Fashion) World

When Shanghai Fashion Week and e-tailing juggernaut Tmall announced an entirely live-streamed, digital fashion week, it left many fashion councils scratching their heads. This online shift has drastically altered the very core on which fashion weeks were built — a physical space for buyers to preview new collections. Instead, Shanghai’s “See Now, Buy Now” format will see more than 150 designers and brands use livestreaming to present over 1,000 products from their current and upcoming collections. Moreover, the core consumer focus, catering to a potential 800 million active users might have far-reaching implications on who future fashion weeks cater to. Shanghai’s online makeover could offer

Coût, Concept and Couture

All eyes were on the iconic Paris Fashion Week. Since 1973, the event’s initial concept consisted of presenting designers’ collections to elite fashion editors and potential buyers. The work to gain visibility and expedite an individual collections’ sale for the upcoming season was nothing short of pure genius as they presented extravagant versions of their clothing later to be modified and toned down for retail sales. While the fundamental essence of these events remains true to their fashion heritage, the style in which the brands present their sought-after couture has evolved. Fashion provides influence over all elements of style, everything from coloration to textile design, printing tec

What COVID-19 is really Teaching Us

By Bill Gates I am a strong believer that there is a spiritual purpose behind everything that happens, whether that is what we perceive as being good or being bad. As I meditate upon this, I want to share with you what I feel the coronavirus is really doing to us. It is reminding us that we are all equal, regardless of our culture, religion, occupation, financial situation or how famous we are. This disease treats us all equally, and perhaps we should to. If you don’t believe me, ask Tom Hanks. It is reminding us that we are all connected, and something that affects one person’s influence on another. It is reminding us that the false borders that we have put up have little value as this viru

Keep your Sanity during COVID-19

I just shoved half a bag of popcorn in my mouth while stress-scrolling through Twitter, my eyes scanning over every single coronavirus update possible. And then I caught myself, there are better ways to cope. So, I sat down on my sofa and turned on a meditation app, taking care to consciously breathe for five minutes. Of course, it took a global pandemic to get me to meditate, something the entire Internet and more than one therapist have been telling me to do for some time. It turns out, they were right, it helps in moments of anxiety. And now, isolated in my home office and going slightly stir-crazy, I have no excuse to avoid it. I’m in my home because I am sort-of quarantined. Someone at

Secluded Hideaways within Driving Distance

When it comes to getting away from it all, we often think remote, hard-to-access destinations. In the age of travel advisories and recommended isolation, we've curated a list of global destinations where self-quarantine won't seem like a preview of Purgatory. Reflecting our global readership, we've selected destinations reachable (safely) from any continent. If you're ready to get away from it all, read on. If you're planning for travel later this year, read on. If you're simply a dreamer, read on. Really, just read on. Gone are the days when a hotel meant simply a bed, a desk and perhaps a minibar. A new wave of accommodations has bumped traditional lodging out of the way by offering unique

Smart Tips to Stay Connected during Shelter-in-Place

Social distancing can make us feel isolated and lonely. More so than ever, it is important to reach out to colleagues and loved ones. The way we work and live is changing, and in this new normal, tapping into our fundamental need for connection is more important than ever. Whether you are working remotely or separated from family or loved ones, everyone is still adjusting, and maintaining a sense of connection can feel especially challenging. The community at Thrive.com weighed in on the little ways they are staying connected to those they no longer see on a day-to-day basis. Which of these will you try?

Hennessy's Intimate VIP Experience with Oscar de la Hoya

Photos by Lauren Scott for Claire Barrett Photography Social distancing might be the phrase of 2020 and, without exception, every industry is exploring its effects and considering both the here-and-now as well as the short-term future.
