Sharing Energy Times at the Airport
I was reading “The Zen of Jeff Bridges” in your June issue at the Denver airport one night. I then looked to my right and the man sitting next to me was reading The Dude and the Zen Master (Bridges’ book on meditation and other matters written with his friend, Buddhist teacher Bernie Glassman). I smiled, then shared with him my thoughts on the article, to which he was inspired to share his own experience of the book.
I am impressed with the quality of your magazine and found it inspiring.
As we said in the story, the book “reads like you are sitting in the living room of Bridges’ Montana ranch,” where Bridges and Glassman held their wide-ranging conversations.

Energy Times on Facebook
Every week we ask our Facebook fans a question related to health and wellness. One recent post asked...
Do you take any precautions against getting too much sun and if so, how?
Depends on the location. Here in Florida the sun is pretty intense so I use nothing less than 30 SPF.
I work outside year round and use SPF 50 sunblock on my lower body and 70 [on my face].
I stay in the sun—no precautions. Firm believer in our bodies needing vitamin D!
Krystal O'Connor Spears
Audrey and Krystal both make valid points: Sun damage isn’t just a summer concern and sunlight does help our bodies make vitamin D. Balance these needs by going into the sun for 10 to 20 minutes twice a week with sunscreen on your face only.
