Nominated as Book Critic! March 2021: Niver’s News

 

March News 2021 with Lisa Niver & We Said Go Travel:

Thank you to the National Arts and Entertainment Journalism awards! I am honored to be a finalist for the NAEJ awards in the category of Book Critic!

Thank you to Girls on The Air for including me in their International Women’s Day show. You can read the transcript and listen to the radio show here.

Thank you to Thrive Global for publishing my article, “Surviving COVID Like a Superhero.”

How can you decrease stress, sleep more and create more memories?

One of the best ways to feel more centered and calm is to try mindfulness meditation. During COVID, through the UCLA Senior Scholars Program, I took Professor Marvin Belzer’s amazing class on mindfulness meditation at the UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center (MARC). MARC has an app called “UCLA Mindful,” which is free and has meditations by Diana Winston, the incredible director of MARC, which I highly recommend. MARC also offers reasonable evening and weekend retreats with renown teachers like Giselle Jones and Matthew Brensilver from SpiritRock.

I wanted to share my video, Hula Hooping Gangnam Style with Iwahig Dancing Inmates. YES I DID hula-hoop at a jail in the Philippines.
