What We’re Trying
Teacher Pick: Robin Arzon, Vice President of Fitness Programming and Head Instructor (and recovering lawyer and New York Times Best Selling Author)
Favorite Class Type: HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training)
Why We Love it: If you haven’t taken a cycling class, you’re missing out. The lights, the music, the motivational instructor with the six pack – spin has it all. We’re into Peloton because you can buy their bikes, livestream the classes, and ride from the comfort of your home. No more excuses for not being able to fit it into your busy work schedule. Pro Tip: If you’re a New York City native, Peloton’s Chelsea studio offers free 30 minute classes all throughout the week to get their attendance up for their livestreams. Absolutely free? Yup. It’s not too good to be true.
What We’re Listening To
From the Heart: Conversations with Yoga Girl
Episode That Hooked Us: Manifesting Abundance, April 7, 2017
Our Favorite Quote: “Trust with action. Dreaming of what you want to create is not enough. You have to get off your ass and work for things to start moving.”
Why We Love It: Yoga Girl is the yogi for the people. Yes, she has the soft soothing voice of your favorite meditation teacher and occasionally she’s talking astrology and New Age, but she’s also authentic. She doesn’t try to be any certain way or what we think a yoga instructor “should be”. Her podcast explores her journey as a mother, a yogi, and most importantly, a human. New York Times best-selling author, serial entrepreneur, and Instagram famous yoga instructor Rachel Brathen is truly a woman working well.
What We’re Reading
Factfulness: Ten Reasons We're Wrong About the World – and Why Things Are Better Than You Think
by Hans Rosling
Our Favorite Chapter: The Blame Game
Words to Remember: “The blame game often reveals our preference. We tend to look for bad guys who confirm our existing beliefs... people we love to point the finger at: evil businessmen, lying journalists and foreigners.”
Why We Love It: You don’t know what you don’t know and even your best guess is likely based on unconscious and predictable biases. So, stop kidding yourself that you know what’s best, that you’re a rational thinker, and that you’re able to make decisions based on facts. No. One. Can. This book should be subtitled: How To Live A Factual Worklife in Ten Easy Steps.
