Marilynn Preston - All is Well: The Art {and Science} of Personal Well-Being (Corte Madera)

Saturday, August 19, 2017 - 1:00pm

When journalist Marilynn Preston started her fitness column in Chicago in 1976, yoga and yogurt were interchangeable terms and most people thought the mind body connection was another name for “neck.”

Everything changes. We live in a healthy lifestyle world now, and in her new book, All is Well Marilynn offers readers a provocative guide to living your best life—healthy and happy, juicy and engaged, alert to corporate predators and health hucksters of every stripe.

The chapters are short and savvy, lively and opinionated: Link Mind and Body. Explore Endlessly. Tweet Mindfully. Make Your Getaway. Raise an Active Kid. Practice De-Aging. Grow Your Gray Matter. Be Your Own Uncle Sam.

Each chapter closes with a reader-friendly action step because at its core, All is Well is about lifestyle change—how it happens, and what you need to know to make positive changes in your life.

From eating clean to going green, from losing weight to adding muscle, from living longer to dying more easily, Marilynn links body and mind to culture and politics. She has great empathy for readers who have tried and failed to realize their personal vision of well being, but she knows you can always Begin. Again. and be successful. Sometimes you have to redefine success. And that’s good too.

In her long-running weekly syndicated column Energy Express, and now in All is Well, Marilynn offers readers a welcoming evidence-based path to more joy, greater health and sustained happiness—three essentials of a healthy lifestyle. Three more, she writes, are crispy fries, good wine, and love, love, love.

Marilynn Preston is a journalist, healthy lifestyle expert, Emmy Award-winning TV producer, and the author of Energy Express, America’s longest-running syndicated fitness column. She is an ACE-certified fitness trainer and certified Wellcoach. Her own practice includes yoga, race walking, kayaking, cross-country skiing, and wine tasting—not on the same day. She’s circumambulated Mt. Kailash in Tibet, climbed Mt. Olympus in Greece, bicycled in France, golfed in Bhutan, and scuba dived in the YMCA pool in Chicago. Her next big adventure is getting people to read All is Well to create their happiest, healthiest lives.
