Plan your budget for a few days longer than one month

My budget/spending plan goes for one month and I ran into difficulty when a trip on the first weekend of the next month came, and I promised to visit requiring more money. That weekend was a holiday as well.

Stress relief

Find a way to help yourself to deal with stress and give your mind and body a break. I find that my exercise in the pool does this very well. My son likes to run. My daughter likes to sing. Find the way that takes over your thoughts and gives you relief.

Snack Time Secrets

I am diabetic so I keep snack foods (cereal bars, peanut butter crackers, etc.) in a big baggie for a quick pick me up. Sometimes I get so ravenously hungry I need to eat something real quick so I don't get sick.

Wall sits while brushing teeth

Break your two minutes of brushing time into 30 second segments. Do a wall sit during the first 30, rest during the second 30, wall-sit during the 3rd segment, and rest during the last. It makes sure you brush your teeth long enough, too!

Love the Stairs

There are those baskets that you can put at the bottom or top of the stairs to save yourself steps. No way! Every time I need to go up or down the stairs, I am delighted. I see it as exercise, not drudgery. It makes the chore welcome rather than tedious.

Seeing the real me.....and loving myself.

I asked myself this question. What if I saw myself the way my friends and family sees me ? Attractive, powerful, loved without conditions, and worthy just as I am. If I see myself this way, I can love myself they way they love me. This has made all the difference.

Make you own peanut butter

If you have a food processor and have access to fresh dry roasted peanuts, you can make your own peanut butter. Just run the peanuts with the chopping blade... it may take a few minutes, but it will get there. It tastes fresher than pre-ground natural PB, and it's probably cheaper, too.
