I usually can fit it all in: morning workout, get daughter launched on her day, hair appointment if need to look "smooth" as I call it (when I have outside meetings, a fashion show or something on TV) and then workday full of fun and creative and sometimes fast-paced switch ups --running between art department and reading pages, story meetings and web planning, etc, I love it all. Then it's dinner with family and possibly an evening event. Then a little R&R like watching a little TV (we like Idol and other reality shows and occasionally an HBO Entourage or something special) and then more reading and to bed.

Happiness is the New Flat Abs
As a magazine editor who writes cover lines to appeal to the most number of readers, I am here to tell you that happiness has replaced "flat abs" as the number one goal, the holy grail everyone is seeking. To me, this makes perfect sense, since you can have a flat stomach, at your goal weight, have a great hair day, and any attribute you care about, but if you're not happy, it's all for nothing. I have worked hard on my happiness, and I want to share what I’ve learned.
With the help and expert guidance of Catherine Birndorf, MD, a women’s mental health expert, this blog will reveal what women are striving for, happiness, calm, gratitude or simply an absence of unhappiness. I will share (but hopefully not over-share) events in my life to help others find more joy and appreciate the "perfect moments" when they arrive. Join in, comment, and we will circle into each room and discuss issues most critical to you. Here, I begin, and toss it over to Catherine (Dr. Birndorf to you!) and see if her strategies resonate and help you solve your problems. Tell us what worked for you and what didn’t. And yes it is work, just like being your fittest or healthiest self. Of course the only person in charge of making your feel bad or good, unhappy or happy, is you, but we are here to help!
