As I have mentioned in other posts, we moved to a different city a few years ago. Since then, I have been teleworking, or in other words, working from home for my employer. There are some perks, but there are also negative aspects.
Hey you! Yeah, the person reading this, not the gal or guy behind you. Do you have 25 minutes in a day for fitness?
Yes, you do.
Try a new morning workout to set your pace for the day. A morning workout has many benefits. It speeds up your metabolism, clears your thoughts and focus for the day. And, of course if you get your morning workout done early, you can dedicate the rest of the day to your other goals!
So, what’s stopping you? [Read more…] about The No Excuse 25 Minute Morning Workout
When you say one thing, but mean another, it’s basically a lie right? Or, some form of deception.
Even the best of actors and actresses likely can’t hide true, raw emotion. Maybe they can. I don’t know, I’ve been checked out of the TV scene for a while now. But even poker players study their opponents to see who is bluffing. They are observing body language, facial expressions, or if they are really awesome, microexpressions. Can the human eye really detect something as fast as 1/15 to 1/25 of a second?
Dang. That’s fast. Don’t blink!
Think you have what it takes to stay under the radar with your lies? Is anyone going to call your bluff? [Read more…] about Teachable Moments: When You Get Caught In A Lie
Do you feel that? Spring is in the air! I for one am pumped for it!
It can be quite depressing living in a cold area that receives a lot of snow in the winter. We welcome the spring with open arms! The grass miraculously come back to life, leaves start to sprout on trees, other plants begin to bloom, and geese and other wildlife start making their way up North!
If you’ve barricaded yourself inside all winter long, you are overdue for some much needed earthing activities. What the heck is earthing you may ask? I’m not a professional – but earthing is basically connecting yourself back to the earth to obtain its natural energies. Instead of Vitamin D – it’s Vitamin G for ground, maybe? But, this is often done barefoot!
If you aren’t a fan of running around barefoot, I’m pro just checking back in with what Mother Nature gave us. Here’s my list if you want a quick way to recharge your batteries, fight your way out of a funk, get outside and start earthing!

One of the best activities I can remember growing up was looking for Easter baskets. My parents didn’t give my sister and I them, as 1). They didn’t really have the money and 2). They figured grandparents would spoil us enough.
So, for me the hunt for Easter baskets would take place at my grandparent’s house with all my other cousins that would travel far distances to also be there Easter weekend. This took place in a good, small town, farming community (yes, like Mayberry). The town was spread out, and my grandparents lived in an awkward looking old house they kept building onto each time they cranked out a kid (6). This house was located on a really large lot with many trees, gardens and bushes one could hide Easter baskets in!
Oddly enough, I would always see one of my cousin’s grab my basket before me and say, “whoops” and hand mine to me. I would then cry and make my grandparents re-hide it somewhere (give me a break, this is devastating when you are 5 years old!). Don’t worry, I got revenge. I eventually got older (and faster) and was soon finding their baskets before them!
The Easter baskets did not include much, if any, candy. My grandparents filled it with so much more. Memories and activities that are lasting me my lifetime. Today I’ll share mine with you and maybe you will want to pick up some of these traditions too! [Read more…] about Fill Easter Baskets With Healthier Options: Activities & Memories!
Life is a marathon. Pretty powerful statement, eh? I can just mic drop and walk out, right? But, I will elaborate more. About this marathon. Ways to run it. And how to keep working on finishing it.
