Work less, get more done. Sounds great! Don’t believe it? Well, give it a shot. Several studies suggest that exercising at least 30 minutes during your workday makes you more productive. On top of that, you’re taking care of your health. Turns out 30 minutes, five days a week, equates to how much exercise the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends to keep your heart and lungs happy. If your company offers fitness or yoga classes, take them!
Everything you need for your next best step (and the one after that, and the one after that) is inside you. The tough part is finding it. But if you’ve got the right blueprint it’s a heck of a lot easier. Here’s how to zero in on your calling – and make it a reality. You can’t coach yourself unless you know what you truly want. It starts with listening. Conveniently, the only person or thing you need to listen to is yourself. Everyone has an inner voice.
I know. The last thing you want to do at the end of a workday is make dinner. It can feel like yet another time-consuming task after punching the clock. Not all home-cooked dinners take half (or even a quarter) of your night to prepare though. See the Kale Stir Fry and its accompaniments below for proof. And believe it or not, spending an hour – or longer – on creating a meal can be relaxing, especially if you listen to soothing music.
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".
