The health benefits of meditation are pretty incredible. Science shows that taking up the mindfulness practice can lower stress levels, help you lose weight, kick certain addictions, and even become a better athlete, just to name a few. But if those mind-body benefits weren't enough to convince you, now there's another reason to get on board: It can also help your appearance, says dermatologist Jennifer Chwalek, M.D. of New York City-based Union Square Laser Dermatology.
Sick of doing crunches or planks ad nauseam? Celebrity trainer Lauren Boggi, founder of Lauren Boggi Active, has you covered. This move is pulled straight from her Cardio-Cheer-Sculpting method—a total-body HIIT-meets-dance-cardio-meets-Pilates workout—but with cheerleading-based choreography. In addition to working your abs, this move will also target your back, delts, and inner and outer thighs. (Next, try these surprising barre and Pilates-inspired abs exercises.) Here's how to do it:A.
For as long as we've been shaving, we've always been taught to do so in *one* direction, or risk nicks, razor burn, or ingrown hairs. But now, for the first time, you can shave back and forth as much as your heart desires thanks to a new drugstore product on the block: Schick Intuition's f.a.b. razor (which stands for forwards and backward, ICYWW). The razor has blades on both sides of the razor—the top blades shave up, and bottom blades shave down—so you never need to lift it up.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
