From Mindless Scrolling to Mindful Sitting: 5 Poses to Do While You Wait I don’t know about you, but I’m not a big fan of sitting and waiting.

This is our compilation of short stories for 2019. This Wrongfully Convicted Man Spent 19 Years in Death Row; Here’s How Meditation Saved Him “I am a magician.” That’s how Damien Echols begins his recent piece on Vice. But he doesn’t saw anyone in half or pull a bunny out of hat. Echols is a truly fascinating man, and one of the reasons he’s so interesting is because, in 1993, he was arrested on three counts of capital murder and, nine months later, was sentenced to death.
