Surprising tweaks that deliver big. Try 'em now!

HAVE A GLASS OF WATER emoticon
Staying hydrated is one of the easiest things you can do for energy. When you skimp on water, the cells in your body shrink, so they can't function as efficiently, triggering feelings of fatigue.

TALK FAST
Ever notice that energetic people tend to zip through their words? Fast talk means fast thinking, which automatically boosts your energy. Speed-talk your way through your next friendly chat, and feel that breathless rush give you a boost.

PRACTICE SELF-FORGIVENESS
No more "I'm worthless because I'm overweight" or "I'm a lazy slob for skipping my workout" thoughts. Guilt is like glue. It keeps you stuck in a low-energy rut. JUST. STOP. NOW.

    Since joining SparkPeople I have become much more aware of my body's need for water.

Instant Tension Tamer

Thursday, January 27, 2011

Stress can affect your entire body, even your hair. The hormone cortisol, which is released into the bloodstream when we're anxious, can actually seep into our hair follicles. In fact, a high cortisol content in tresses was found to be a predictor of heart attack! To soothe yourself from head to toe, find an activity that calms you-whether it's practicing yoga, taking a long bath, lighting candles (yes!!!) or listening to music-and do it every day.

When you make a relaxing ritual into a habit, it becomes even more effective because it helps prevent stress over the long term.

    I never knew that! That would explain why my hair gets so nasty when I go through long spouts of stress. Thanks for the info!

Banana

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

Rest in peace, my little Banana Butt. Your daddy & I will miss you very, very much. But we know that you are happy at the Bridge - playing with your crocheted eggs and running all over the place dragging those socks you love so much. Enjoy all the peanut butter treats, too! We love you, sweetie!

    Cliff & I had to help our little female ferret, Banana, over the Rainbow Bridge. It was very sad for us - we've had her since she was 11 weeks old.

A New View

Monday, January 24, 2011



Which way from here? Before you can go forward, you've got to figure out where you want to go, and there's no better path to a fresh perspective than to step outside of your normal environment. So use these cold, quiet days to push yourself to an invigorating place. Pause, take a deep breath and think. Away from your usual noise and clutter, you'll find clarity and, with that, the inspiration for your next bold direction. Ready? Take the leap!

I saw this on someone's page today. I'll combine it with your blog and be on my way!
