##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, while the poles keep the pressure off your knees, so you can work out for longer with a shorter recovery time. This popular sport also increases endurance, burns calories, tones muscles and may even help to prevent cancer.Featured products:Carousel previous buttonCarousel next button
##Are You Brave Enough for Slackline?
Slacklining is a portable form of exercise that can be done almost 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 (i.e. “the jumpline”). Your core and legs will benefit from the balance-based strength training, while Slackline’s challenging routines will sharpen your focus. Just remember: don’t look down!Featured products:Carousel previous buttonCarousel next button
##Let's rock! 3 unmissable exhibitions
Rock legends are on display in museums – a different way of (re)discovering their world. The Rolling Stones are coming to New York. After the Saatchi Gallery in London, it's the turn of Industria Superstudio in the West Village to host "Exhibitionism", the largest exhibition ever devoted to this evergreen group. A 50-year career provides plenty of material. From the reconstruction of their early flat to a 3D concert clip, through their stage costumes and instruments, the journey doesn't disappoint. From November 2016. www.stonesexhibitionism.com
In London, the Punk 1976-78 exhibition at the British Library looks back at the beginnings of this movement that exploded with the Sex Pistols. Music, fashion and posters reimmerse us in the sounds and images of what was a real musical and social clash at the time. Punks used to chant "no future", yet their influence can still be very much felt today. Until 2 October 2016. www.bl.uk and www.punk.london.
"David Bowie Is" continues to tour the world. Designed under the late artist's direction, this fascinating exhibition explores his ties with other art forms, such as mime, design and painting. Over 300 personal items are on display. Until November 13 at the Museo d'Arte Moderna di Bologna (MAMbo) in Bologna, Italy. www.mambo-bologna.org; From January 8 to April 9, 2017 at the Warehouse Terrada G1 Building in Tokyo, Japan. www.davidbowieis.jp

##Relax and De-stress with the ‘My Detox Ventre Plat’ Massage
Your stomach is often stressed by diets, poor posture, and even emotions. That’s why Clarins created a spa treatment aimed to tone and detox the abdominal area. Here’s how it works: For 30 minutes, a spa expert massages your stomach area with their thumbs, palms and forearms to detox and release tension. Next, a specialist coaches you through a 45 minute” workout to help tone the transverse abdominal muscle (TVA), the muscle responsible for a coveted flat stomach. Get a final detox with a Green C’Juice or herbal tea, plus a travel-sized Relax Body Treatment Oil to help maintain the massage results at home. You’ll see and feel the results—both inside and out.

Yes, it's back-to-school time!

All is well, you can ease yourself back in gently.
