Appreciate tradition

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

Cultivate family traditions. They make occasions feel special and exciting, mark the passage of time in a happy way, and provide a sense of anticipation, security, and continuity. There’s no need to wait for traditions to emerge spontaneously. A “new tradition” may be an oxymoron, but that shouldn’t prevent you from inventing a tradition that you wish you had.

    Couldn't agree more. Family traditions are a rock - if everything else goes haywire, they keep you grounded and comfortable :)

Aim High

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

“In the long run men hit only what they aim at. Therefore, though they should fail immediately, they had better aim at something high.”

3 more ways to stick to your exercise routine

Monday, April 23, 2012

1. Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good. Don’t decide it’s worth exercising only if you can run five miles or bike for an hour. Even going for a ten-minute walk is worthwhile. Do what you can.

2. Suit up. Even if you’re not sure you’re going to exercise, put on your exercise clothes. Pack your bag. Put the dog’s leash by the door. Get prepared. If you’re ready, you might find it easier to go ahead and exercise. Sometimes a very trivial thing—like not knowing where your shoes are—gets in the way.

3. Don’t kid yourself. Paying for a gym membership doesn’t mean you go to the gym. Having been in shape in high school or college doesn’t mean you’re in shape now. Saying that you don’t have time to exercise doesn’t make it true.

    Good reminders! I always pack my gym bag the night before and have it ready to grab 'n go during my hectic mornings!

Did you hear about the monkey that was just like his dad?

He was a chimp off the old block.
