500 Ways to Make a Yoga Mat Sandwich. The controversial “yoga mat” chemical used to make Subway sandwich bread has been discovered in nearly 500 items and more than 130 brands of bread, stuffing, pre-made sandwiches and snacks, according to an analysis by the Environmental Working Group (EWG).

EWG researchers found azodicarbonamide (ADA), an industrial chemical foaming agent, in many well-known brands, including: Pillsbury, Sara Lee, Shoprite, Safeway, Smucker’s, Fleischman’s, Jimmy Dean, Kroger, Little Debbie, Tyson, Nature’s Own and Wonder, according to ingredient data obtained for a new food database project due out later this year. ADA is a synthetic substance used by plastics makers to generate tiny bubbles that make materials light, spongy and strong. These materials show up in flip-flops, yoga mats and many types of foam packing and insulation. It was gathered before mid-February and represents a snapshot of ADA foods on the market. EWG is calling on food manufacturers to immediately end ADA use in food.

Make friends with it. Drink some tequila if you need to. Commit to the process. Rome wasn’t built in a day. Unless of course it was built by aliens. Engage! There is a gap between where you are and where you want to be. You eat the elephant one mouthful at a time. Creativity happens in the relationship between you and your medium, whether it’s the violin or writing or painting or puppetry or interpretive dance or start-ups or some combination thereof (interpretive dance puppetry, which I hear is wildly underrated). Find your tribe. Avoid toxic people. Seek constructive feedback. Master your tools. Master the difficult. Celebrate your progress, step by step by step. Embrace your limitations and constraints. If you don’t have any limitations, make some up. Develop creative rituals. Control your space.

Be imperfect. Reframe failure. Go for bold heroic failures.
