The little known cause of obesity: scarcity thinking

Glancing up from my phone, I spotted it, directly across the street (and a crosswalk) from Starbucks, although they looked almost identical. My journey up Montana Ave in Santa Monica saw me with head constantly up and down, going from phone screen to the actual world. I was looking for Primo Passo Coffee, a place [...]

Men – are you making these 6 mistakes?

What would Mike do?

I’m sure you’ve no doubt been thinking this on occasion, right? Faced with only vegetarian options at dinner... Maybe you’ve woken up in a strange place and thought- “What would Mike do in this situation?” No, I am kidding. Of course you haven’t, and I certainly hope you haven’t.
