moving

After a long, satisfying career writing two-minute television news stories, the seed for my first book was planted on a memorable day as I embarked on the job of a lifetime.

 

It was April 2011.  I had just landed my dream promotion:  London-based Europe Bureau Chief for Global National.  The taxi was waiting to take me to the airport to begin my posting, my first major assignment to cover the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.  As I said my goodbyes, my wife Isabella handed me a present.  It was a journal with a green leather cover.

 

I live by this rule: the worse my mood, the more important my workout. I know that my future self will always be happier — and healthier both physically and psychologically — if I move. Some type of daily movement is — like brushing my teeth or telling my mom that I love her — a daily “non-negotiable.”
