Where the mechanics of writing are concerned, I’m far from perfect. One example: I always struggle with who and whom. (Sometimes I’ll even rewrite a sentence just so I won’t have to worry about which is correct.)
And that’s a real problem. The same way one misspelled word can get your résumé tossed onto the reject pile, one misused word can negatively impact your entire message.

AskMen has placed actress Emma Watson at the top of its list of the Top 99 Outstanding Women, citing her work on the United Nations’ HeforShe campaign as a “noble pursuit.”
The men’s website says their list celebrates women who are both beautiful and remarkable within their industries. MMA fighter Ronda Rousey clocks in at No. 2 on the list, and Kim Kardashian rounds out the top three. Laverne Cox was named No. 16, and though the list is heavy on actresses, there are plenty of spaces for athletes, from Alex Morgan to Lindsey Vonn.

1) Get out in nature
You probably seriously underestimate how important this is. (Actually, there’s research that says you do.) Being in nature reduces stress, makes you more creative, improves your memory and may even make you a better person.
We all know how important this is, but few people do it consistently. Other than health benefits too numerous to mention, exercise makes you smarter, happier, improves sleep, increases libido and makes you feel better about your body. A Harvard study that has tracked a group of men for more than 70 years identified it as one of the secrets to a good life.
