People everywhere are talking about consensual non-monogamy, some with curiosity, most with intense apprehension. As a culture, we've outgrown antiquated ideas about monogamy yet we haven't fully integrated new ways of being together. New research on relationships shows us taking a non-traditional approach to autonomy and commitment may be the key to lasting love. Gina Senarighi asks What can we learn from open relationships in this new era of love and commitment?

Americans are just beginning to pay the price for our current “I can forego sleep and then hype myself up on caffeine all day” mentality. With two-thirds of us not getting the seven to nine hours of sleep our bodies need to cleanse, filter, properly store the day’s activities and heal, we are compromising our physical and mental well-being. Spend these six minutes learning how to get to sleep, stay asleep and wake up feeling refreshed!

Unity Ride 2017

@ VOL 24 ON AUG 17, 2017

Who bicycles 3,200 miles in 35 days? Andre Block and Jonathan Williams do. The pair set off from Oceanside, California on Memorial Day and ended in Washington, DC on the 4th of July. All the while filming a documentary film.
Why? To promote love and unity in this divided nation. You see, one is liberal, the other conservative. The differences don’t end there. The journey was long and challenging, but also a lot of fun. The two inspired everyone they came in contact with, worked as a team despite their differences, and experienced this beautiful country from an entirely different perspective.
