{ object.primary_image.title }}

This year’s best coats list features Lululemon, Fjallraven, Allbirds, Canada Goose, and more As temperatures begin to drop, it’s time to start gearing up for the pandemic fall and winter ahead. For many of us, the colder months will be different than they were in years past. Many of us will continue to work remotely, which means no early morning commutes through the snow. Some of us will choose not to travel to visit family members in other parts of the country during the holiday season. As it becomes less pleasant outside, we’ll spend more time at home than ever before, except for the moments when we step outside for a walk and fresh air. Read Full Story

With sales on Lululemon, the North Face, Uniqlo, and more, you’ll keep warm in style (and for cheap) no matter how many more weeks of winter there are.

Dyson’s new 3-in-1 fan cleans the air in your home. Is it worth $800?

{ object.primary_image.title }}

It’s a fan, purifier, and humidifier in one—all with Dyson’s signature engineering and design ingenuity. Thanks to shelter in place orders, many of us are spending more time at home than ever—and that’s saying something, because Americans typically spend 90% of our time indoors. It can be difficult to get the air quality in your home consistently comfortable. (I, for one, relied on an ad hoc team of humidifier, fan, and a slightly open window to combat my old-school radiator and get the humidity and temperature in my apartment to their optimal levels this past winter.) All of that time indoors also means more exposure to airborne pollutants, some of which are two to five times more concentrated inside than outside, according to the Environmental Protection Agency .

Why this pandemic winter is the perfect time to try out ‘slow work’

{ object.primary_image.title }}

The “slow work” movement prioritizes meaningful and measured productivity, alongside dedicated time for breaks. As the pandemic drags on, many of us are under more pressure than ever before at work. Perhaps your company was operating at a loss during the first few months of the pandemic, and now—half a year later—it’s regaining its footing and you’re juggling multiple new projects. Maybe your team laid off workers, and you’re forced to pick up the slack. Or maybe you’re trying to get a new side hustle off the ground. Read Full Story

{ object.primary_image.title }}

We’re being bombarded with antiviral products promising to protect us from the coronavirus; even Queen Elizabeth’s gloves now come with an antiviral coating. But are they worth the money? Doctors weigh in. Even Queen Elizabeth’s gloves have been transformed by the pandemic. For more than 70 years, the British monarch’s favorite glove-maker has been Cornelia James , and she wears the gloves at most public events. Now, to keep up with the global pandemic, the brand has just updated its classic cotton gloves with an antiviral coating. The $120 gloves are treated with a substance called HeiQ Viroblock, which has been shown to kill the coronavirus in 30 minutes, and they can be washed 30 times before it wears out. Read Full Story

Recovery is even more challenging than dealing with the immediate crisis and requires careful planning and strategic execution. Let’s call 2020 a reaction. It was the year that happened to us , and we responded as well as we could on as many levels as possible, all at the same time. There was no plan or playbook, nor standard operating procedures to reference. We consulted expert advice , stayed nimble , and learned via trial and error . Read Full Story

We know it’s cold. But if there are walls and a roof, you’re not outdoor dining

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Think of the virus like cigarette smoke. If where you’re eating would fill up with secondhand smoke if someone at the next table was smoking, then it’s filling up with potentially infected droplets. Restaurants across the country have moved their seating outside to allow for outdoor dining, but not all outdoor dining structures are equal when it comes to COVID-19 safety. In an attempt to keep outdoor dining feasible throughout the winter, some eateries have outfitted their curbside dining settings with walls—and even roofs —making them more indoors than outdoors, and increasing the risk of spreading COVID-19.

{ object.primary_image.title }}

There is a simple way to reclaim your time, make the days more memorable, and reduce your constant anxiety. I stepped outside this morning, and the morning air in Austin was chilly.
