 I’ve spent the past year thinking a lot about “wellth”—the idea that success is found in a lifestyle devoted to mental, physical, and emotional health. (I even wrote a book about it.) In this new series, we’re celebrating visionaries who embody what it means to be wellthy. 

Matthew Ward, known professionally as M. Ward, is one of the most well-respected musicians and collaborators, as he’s part of She & Him and Monsters of Folk. He’s also a big runner and all-around awesome guy. Not to mention, his new album More Rain is amazing!
