"Mindful Holiday Eating" by guest blogger Donald Altman
By Samy AbulEla

The idea of eating with mindful awareness on Thanksgiving Day may seem like a bit of an oxymoron. In fact, the word holiday is more synonymous with such things as indulgence and overconsumption than anything else. In fact, it’s been said that the average caloric intake on Thanksgiving Day runs about 4,500 calories per adult. That’s a whole lot of turkey with all the trimmings, mashed potatoes and gravy, and pumpkin pie with ice cream! Perhaps you have tried to eat moderately. Any well-intentioned plan to eat moderately and healthfully during the holiday season can be hijacked by events, persons, or food cravings that seem out of your control.

My doubts and fears said it was impossible, but I got around them by saying “Give me one or two years to try this, purely as an experiment. If it doesn’t work out, I’ll be no worse off than I am right now” — broke, without a job, scrounging for $65 rent every month.

"Learn How to Think Like a Genius" by New World Library Publisher Marc Allen
By Samy AbulEla

Several months ago, Georgia Hughes, our editorial director, brought in a manuscript by Michael Michalko called Creative Thinkering and passed it around. My first thought was that the title was a little odd. The subtitle grabbed me from the beginning: Putting Your Imagination to Work.

Then I started to read the manuscript, and the first sentences of the Introduction had me totally hooked:

Why are some people creative and others not?
