  • AWARDS
  • Voted Best Health and Healthy Living Web site — Intent, 2011
  • “A Manifesto for Thriving in a Mixed-Up World” wins 2011 Folio Award –
    • On November 1, FOLIO: magazine announced that Experience Life received a 2011 Eddie Award in editorial excellence for its pullout handbook, “Being Healthy Is a Revolutionary Act: A Manifesto for Thriving in a Mixed-Up World.” Authored by founding editor Pilar Gerasimo as part of her feature in Experience Life’s January-February 2011 “Change Your Life” issue, the manifesto inspired a companion Web initiative, RevolutionaryAct.com.
    • “The central message of this manifesto, and of all the resources at RevolutionaryAct.com, is that each of us has the opportunity to reclaim responsibility for our own well-being, even in the face of real challenges,” says Gerasimo. “To me, this award feels like an affirmation of that message, and also a huge support of our magazine’s commitment to helping change the world for the healthier.”
    • The Eddie and Ozzie Awards is the largest competition in magazine publishing and is held each year in New York City during the annual FOLIO: conference.

I am going to cut out the entire article and tape it to my motivation board to look at every morning. I’m a grad student in nutrition who’s embarking on a second career in nutrition and health communications and counseling, and in just four pages, this article sums up all the reasons why I felt compelled to change course. You can bet that it will be shared and quoted liberally and often! Thanks so much for your insight, passion and inspiration. — Kathy Sanchez

  • I would love to spread your awesome message around my college campus, FAU in Boca Raton, FL!! — Julen Key
  • Hi! I would love to put up your posters in my office building in the common areas. I work in a bustling, but non-pedestrian friendly suburb of Washington, DC. We have quite a few challenges to overcome to incorporate exercise and healthy eating into our daily routine as we tend to drive everywhere, and most of the food options in the area are not what I would define as good, long-term options. I’m sure your posters would provide some much needed encouragement for the people who work here, and perhaps that would trickle back down to their families at home. Many thanks for all your good work! — Karen Berry
