Snow Days Rule, Sick Days Drool


Sick Days. They really are a pain, both literally and figuratively. I’ve already shared my thoughts about fighting through it all because nobody’s got time for sick days. But despite the unseasonably super warm weather we’ve been having of late, the temperatures here in NY have definitely started to plummet. I have a love/hate relationship with […]

Sleep Tops My New Year’s Goals Thanks to ZZZQuil


I normally don’t make New Year’s Resolutions. And if I do, it’s usually the same one every year: “I resolve not to make any New Year’s Resolutions.” It’s just something I never got behind is all. Most people break their resolutions before the end of January anyways, so what’s the point? As I get older, […]

Let Massage Envy Maintain Your Total Body Care

Massage Envy

Dickens was right. This is the Best of Times and the Worst of Times. Clearly he was talking about the holiday shopping season, right? Yeah, I can’t believe we’re less than a week away from Black Friday. Another month of shopping insanity is about to hit us again. As someone who works in eCommerce, it’s […]

I Strain, You Strain, We All Strain With Eye Strain


If you asked my teenage self what sort of digital pain I was suffering, you’d get one of two answers. Either I was frustrated at my favorite Atari 2600 game not working (True story, in the old days, we would literally blow the dust out of a cartridge to fix it!), or I was hurting […]

Sick Days? Nobody’s Got Time for That!


There are sick days, and then there are sick days. I’ve certainly had my fair share over the years but one of them definitely sticks out in my mind. It was about a year before I got married. At the time, I was working as a magazine editor for a magazine all about comic books […]

One Simple Change Has Made My Life Much More Active


Exercise has certainly taken center stage in my life the past few months. I’m eating better and working out more than I have in the past four or five years. I love weight lifting, so that takes care of two days a week at the gym. Allie’s been a master chef when it comes to […]

5 Crucial #TravelTipZzz You Can’t Live Without


I love traveling. Whether it’s by car or plane, I’m always up for a trip. Which is one of the reasons I absolutely love my new job. I’ll be going on a number of business trips around the country this year. But the coolest thing about my new job is that for my first three […]

From Weight Lifting to Yoga, I Am Tuna Strong


Every week, Allie and I look forward to Sundays. Sure, we’ve got to go to work the next day and the weekend’s already more than half over, but there’s a very special reason we love Sundays: Tuna Melts! For the last few months, I’ve been whipping us up some healthier tuna melts for lunch every […]

Where Did That Lost Hour From Daylight Saving Time Go?

Fozzie Bear #MuppetsMostWantedEvent

Sleep. It’s one of the most precious commodities in the world. I’ll admit it, I love to sleep. In my high school and college days, I don’t think I ever saw daylight before 11:30 am on the weekends. Yet there are two natural predators of the precious sleep cycle: children and Daylight Saving Time. And […]

The 10 Worst Things About Having a Cold


I just got back from an amazing blogging adventure out in sunny Los Angeles. It was a beautiful 80 degrees the entire time and I may’ve even broken a sweat once or twice. Apologies to my friends trapped under 75 feet of snow in New England right now. Anyways, I quickly came back to NY […]

Make a New Year’s Resolution to Stop Smoking


Another year is almost behind us. And that means it’s time to make those New Year’s Resolutions again. I generally don’t make any, but if I did, I’m pretty sure this year’s would revolve around exercising loads more. Tons of people take this opportunity to either resolve to lose weight or stop smoking. I’ve never smoked […]

This Dad Can’t Take Another Sick Day

Vicks Ambassador

Last year, I got hit by a truck. Well, no, not literally. That would be bad. Like really bad! But it sure felt like I got hit by one. For the first time in as long as I can remember, I caught the flu. It knocked me for a pretty big loop and I ended […]

Taking Active Steps for Early Detection


  Breast cancer is a disease that affects many women of all ages. Although the majority of the population is aware of the significance of breast cancer, many women overlook the fact that every year the rate of breast cancer reports in the U.S. has increased. Statistics show that 1 in 8 women will develop […]

Myth Busting the Flu Vaccine

Minute Clinic flu shots

Last year, I caught a really bad cold in the winter. I was achy, stuffy, feverish, you name it. I worked from home a few times and even took a day or two off. Did my wife sympathize? Sure, for about a day. Then she rolled her eyes and continued repeating that men are basically […]
