Editor's Note
As I confront the last month of busy season, congratulating myself on the bizarre fact that I can still see over the tops of the piles of work surrounding my desk, and wondering if there is a market for a book called "Confessions of a Workaholic Who Eats Poorly, Doesn't Exercise, and Can't Manage Time," I've decided to gather a collection of articles on, well, improving workflow, eating healthy snacks, and managing time. Maybe it's not too late to get the house in order, as it were, and sail through the next month with smiles on our faces, healthy products in our bellies, bodies that are fit, and desk spaces that are clear. If nothing else, in those few minutes of sleep we get each night, we can dream of signing the last tax return, closing the office door, and heading for the beach.

Best regards,

Even five minutes of aerobic exercise can stimulate anti-anxiety effects. more >>

It's late. Work is piled all around. You still have hours to go before you call it a day. You're hungry. What do you do? Reach for the nearest can of soda and a handful of cookies?
