##The Ultimate Workout: Nordic Walking
The ultimate outdoor, endurance-boosting activity, this Finnish sport first gained popularity in 1966. An alternative to cross-country skiing, Nordic Walking offers many of the same benefits, and those poles keep pressure off your knees, so you can work out longer with less recovery time. This sport favorite also increases endurance, burns calories, tones muscles, and even help prevent cancer.
##Skin Snack: Oatmeal to Glow
Beat the fall energy slump and keep skin healthy with this power-packed and super-delicious snack, starring vitamins B, C, E and K, manganese, flavonoids, copper, selenium, fatty acids, omega 3, fiber, and more.
1 ½ cups almond, flax, oat or cow's milk

¼ cup quinoa flakes
1 tablespoon almonds
1 tablespoon sunflower seeds
1 teaspoon flax seeds
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon liquid honey
Crushed pecans or hazelnuts
Raspberries, blueberries or other seasonal fruit
1 pinch of salt
Gently heat the milk. Mix the oat and quinoa flakes, seeds and salt in a saucepan over medium heat until they are toasted and grilled. Add half of the warm milk, stir briskly, and add the cinnamon and honey. Warm it over a low heat for 15 minutes, stirring constantly, and add the rest of the warm milk (and cold milk if necessary to obtain the desired consistency). Pour the mixture into a bowl and add the blueberries, raspberries and other seasonal fruit. Sprinkle with the pecans or hazelnuts.
##Rock n’ Roll: Museum Quality
Obsessed with guitar heroes? You’re not alone. This season, three major galleries have exhibits dedicated to the greatest rock musicians of our time. Grab a band tee and find your nearest one here…
New York: The Rolling Stones After a sold-out run at London’s Saatchi Gallery, the Rolling Stone’s “Exhibitionism" comes to Manhattan’s Industria Studios. With a reconstruction of their first apartment to a 3-D concert clip, this is the largest exhibition ever devoted to Mick, Keith, and co.

Industria West Village 755 Washington Street New York, NY 10014
London: The Sex Pistols The British Library hosts The Birth of Punk ’67—’68, which looks back at the beginnings of the movement.

##Are You Brave Enough for Slackline?
Slacklining is a portable exercise that can be done practically anywhere (even in the middle of the city). All you need is the elastic strap that hooks between two pillars such as trees and a bit of motivation. Serious enthusiasts work their way towards the Trickline—a routine that involves turns, splits, and eventually, acrobatic leaps. (They call that “the jumpline.”) Your core and legs will benefit from the balance-based strength training, and your focus will sharpen thanks to Slackline’s challenging routines. Just remember—don’t look down!Featured productsCarousel previous buttonCarousel next button
##Tour the Globe from One Treehouse to Another
Want a real adventure? Book one of these treehouses for an eco-travel experience you’ll never forget.
France: At Bois de Landry, you’ll find fifteen treehouse cabins surrounding a pond, creating an instant community in the Perche region of Alsace. But be ready to really commit: there’s no electricity or running water in this idyllic setting.
Washington State: 30 minutes from Seattle, you’ll find Treehouse Point, a six-cabin resort with incredible views, riverside yoga sessions, and therapeutic massages included.
Sweden: Offering a more modern take on treehouse living, the Treehotel in Harads, Sweden is a must-see for design lovers. (Think Twin Peaks meet the MoMA Museum.) Each house is different, but all of them boast an incredible view of the blossoming valleys below
China: They call the tropical island of Hainan “the Chinese Hawaii,” and besides turquoise waters and silky sand, you’ll find the Sanya Nashan Treehouse Resort. With four cabins built directly into tamarind trees, you’ll have access to the neighboring Buddhist ecological park, plus the iconic shoreline. Paradise, found!
From €159 a night.
