This is the second week of my challenge, and I’ve taken a new step towards developing a consistent meditation routine: I increased the length of my meditation sessions and tried midday meditation rather than morning sittings. The results were … less than desirable. Experimenting with different times of day In my first week, my comfort level with meditation grew, but my stress was not necessarily relieved.

Photo: likekightcm (Shutterstock) As one who likes to rock out, I confess, I was excited that my streaming service of choice—Spotify—announced it’s rolling out a new service tier for lossless audio streaming .

Here’s the thing. I wouldn’t pay a dime more for “enhanced audio” on any streaming service simply because the opportunity exists. […]

Frances McDormand stars in “Nomadland.” Fern (McDormand) has lost her husband and their home in Empire, Nevada, located on the edge of the desert. The […]
