Focus: My new book on simplicity in the age of distractions | zen habits


Focus - It's a free e-book from ZenHabits Author Leo Babauta.

Since almost everyone who reads this blog with any regularity could probably benefit from a break from reading about health and nutrition (myself included) I'm recommending you pick this up and give it a read.

In-Your-Face Fitness: Jillian Michaels' kettle bell DVD sounds a thud -


This one line reminds me a bit of the Coca-Cola "Vitamin Water Defense" of (paraphrasing) "no intelligent person would think this drink is good for you".

By making the claim that Jillian is 'an actress playing a fitness trainer '(a claim made by the author, NOT Jillian) it does really remove any accountability and responsibility away from Jillian...

Perhaps this is the direction this industry is headed in...after all, have we ever really seen any accountability from diet gurus?
