SmartyPants Proudly Presents: Teen Filmmaker Lily Walsh

It took less than a minute for me to be convinced. Ramaa Mosely was not even done describing the work her organization, Adolescent, does to support the dreams of aspiring teenage filmmakers before I was saying, “Yes.” Of course. Of course, we would love to commission a teen to create a video for SmartyPants.

Smart Runners Run Smarty

Smart Runners Run Smarty

Pounding down a steep and winding road in the Wasach Mountains in the company of several thousand fellow runners, I thought to myself: Running in a race is kind of a SmartyPants thing to do. Marathons, half-marathons, 10Ks, 5Ks, color runs, walks and triathlons — lots of SmartyPantses across the country are getting together as […]

Romance in a Box? Romeo Delivers!

Romance in a Box? Romeo Delivers!

I know there must be guys out there in long-term relationships that still compose iambic pentameter sonnets for their beloved, bring home a dozen roses from work every day, and leave calligraphic thank-you notes scattered around the home in drifts.

In fact, the researchers found that only 10% – as opposed to the 2009 estimate of 70% – of kids had inadequate levels of vitamin D.

Traveling Healthy: Destination, Las Vegas?

Traveling Healthy: Destination, Las Vegas?

Staying healthy when traveling to Las Vegas seems like a contradiction in terms. How could you possibly be mindful of your physical well being in Sin City? And why would you want to? Leaving the latter question alone for the time being, a recent trip led me to realize that it is quite possible these […]

Travel Wellness Blunders (and Bonuses)

Travel Wellness Blunders (and Bonuses)

How did I become convinced that calories don’t count when I’m in a different time zone? What is it about clocking three hours in seat 17D at 30,000 feet that makes me think I deserve a multi-day break from my exercise routine?
