Want to live well?

You’re also how you feel, how you exercise, how you sleep, how you handle money, how you relate to people, and what you value. If you’re worried about your well-being, Harvard experts across an array of fields have some advice: Eat thoughtfully, exercise often, raise your children well, stash a few bucks away, and stop thinking it’s all about you. People make choices every day that affect their health and happiness, but life’s complexity and its bewildering array of options — not to mention the species-wide lack of willpower — can make living well a challenge.

BRAIN. DEMOCRACY. THE most striking thing about the founders of modern democracy such as James Madison and John Stuart Mill is how hard-headed they were.


They regarded democracy as a powerful but imperfect mechanism: something that needed to be designed carefully, in order to harness human creativity but also to check human perversity, and then kept in good working order, constantly oiled, adjusted and worked upon.

It's not pretty, but to solve this kind of problem, you can cut out a few of the teeth at the bottom to thread the slider back on the other side (I'd probably take out 2 or 3 teeth about 1 inch up to make it easier). Then you need to put a stop across the zipper above the teeth you took out (to stop the slider going down pass that point again). With clothes, we used to sew the zipper shut with enough thread to act as a stopper, but with luggage you'll probably need to find something a bit more sturdy. I used the FixnZip on my golf bag (similar style as the briefcase).
