When you walk outside & get hit with the humidity - it's just like going into a sauna!! This heat is way too oppressive!!!! And there's not much relief in sight!

Oops!

In the mid-1960s, Dennis Hopper, then an up-and-coming actor, bought a painting called Sinking Sun by pop artist Roy Lichtenstein—which he then lost to his first wife in their 1969 divorce. “I paid $1,100 for Sinking Sun, ” he explained in an interview. “My ex-wife sold it for $3,000, thinking she’d made a good deal.” After changing hands one more time, the painting was auctioned off in 2006 . . . for $15.78 million.

Breathing

Saturday, July 16, 2011

By focusing on your breath, you can train your mind to release tension. To start, breathe slowly and think "let" as you inhale and "go" as you exhale.

    It's wonderful for helping you sleep! Just concentrating on breathing and nothing else, calms all your thoughts to a central nothingness. Come and look at the sarcasm united team, they're good fun! emoticon

Be Spontaneous!

Friday, July 15, 2011

While having a daily routine can be comforting, it can lead to boredom, drain your energy, and take a toll on your mental health. Shake things up for a happier, healthier you: Book that last-minute vacation, sign up for a 5K on a whim or get down with an impromptu living room dance party!

How Can You Make Healthy Habits Stick?

Thursday, July 14, 2011

Try this cool mental motivator:

Predict you will eat better and work out more next week and you probably will, according to a recent study in the Journal of Consumer Research. The reason is that once you turn wishful thinking into a plan of action, that goal feels more accessible and your behavior becomes more consistent with your ideal.

Simple, but it works! Self-predictions can help reinforce good habits and disrupt bad ones.

In other words: I think I can, I think I can, I think I can...I know I can!!!
