Healing Through Reiki

1914 — Mt. Kurama, Japan. Dr. Mikao Usui sat in the mountains in meditative prayer after 21 days of fasting. Golden, flickering luminescence in the distance drew closer to form Sanskrit symbols instructing him to create a healing system of laying hands. Thus Usui reiki was born.

Piece by Piece

If you haven’t done a puzzle since you were a kid, consider this your sign to jump back in! It not only has the power to evoke beautiful memories of the past, it also helps to slow down your brain (key for mental clarity), forcing you to focus on one task, completing a piece at a time. In our fast-paced world of constant alerts and multitasking, puzzles can be a way to bring instant calm and peace to a hectic day. We caught up with Rachel Hochhauser and Jena Wolfe, founders of the fun and funky brand Piecework Puzzles, to talk jigsaws, nostalgia, and the business of artful puzzles.

Kids in the Kitchen

It’s hard, it’s messy, it’s time consuming, and there may be a million things you’d rather do in your kitchen, but cooking with kids can be incredibly rewarding for all parties involved (that means you too — the adult in the room!). Giving children the tools to be successful cooks — the technique, know-how, and hands-on experience — is handing them a skillset that will be useful for their entire lives. Whether they use that knowledge to dress up their survival ramen with an added egg and spinach (yay for protein and veggies!) or hone their craft to be the next Food Network star, they’re bound to get something out of the experience, even if it’s only quality time spent together.

France on a Motorbike

I travel for a living. Here’s how I vacation: This summer I had the opportunity to experience France on two wheels. There’s something so utterly raw about traveling by motorbike, and looking back on this trip reminds me of just that. It’s early mornings, riding through cities as the sun comes up. It’s seeing the world whizz past and people-watching at traffic lights. It’s not caring about how you look, only how you feel. It’s unpacking and repacking tank bags every morning and night. It’s snack stops and espresso shots. It’s having zero distractions — focusing only on what’s in front of you.
