Do You Want to Be Happier? You Have to Practice.

 

Recently, I was invited back as a guest on the TV show, Good Morning Florida Keys. When the host, Jenna Stuaffer, heard that I had been studying happiness, she asked me to share everything I had learned about being happier.

We had a ball talking about the practice of happiness – something everyone can have fun working on. Enjoy!

Since his death last week, the news has been flooded with stories about Robin Williams. Film clips of his unquestionable genius streaming continuously making us weepy and nostalgic.

“Fish on!” I yelled from the back of the boat as I saw the fishing line pulled taut into the ocean. I had just finished moaning to my husband that we should call it a day and head back to shore. After hours of motoring around the Atlantic scouting for fish, but not catching any, […]

Here we are. Right in the middle of the sweltering dog days of summer.  My car thermostat read 95°F this afternoon, which made me wistful for low humidity and my wavy hair’s favorite temperature –  72. Summer’s heat and humidity can make staying lean and feeling fresh difficult. If you’re like me, the heat takes […]

Putting the New Back in New York City

{Steve Tyrell, Katie Couric, and me at Cafe Carlyle.}

New York City is one of my favorite places to go for a long weekend getaway. It’s fast paced. It’s over the top. It’s intoxicating.

Last week, my husband went online to purchase a recreational fishing license. He had the option to buy a lifetime license, which he thought would be the most economical. When reading the fine print he discovered that the lifetime fishing license was only good through the age of 64. Looking perplexed, I asked him what was […]

When I got married, I worried that the minister didn’t know my fiancé and me well enough to deliver a heartfelt, engaging ceremony. We were, after all, getting married on a tiny island in the Bahamas and had just recently met this man of God, who also toiled as the town baker. For the days […]
