Healthy snacks

Each day I try to eat a healthy snack. Whether it's a 4 medium strawberries cut into slices, a banana, or a handful of pistachio nuts. It's important to have that mid-morning or mid-afternoon fuel to keep yourself energized each day!

I live off my paycheck until I get paid again (14 days later), and whatever is still left in my account is moved into my savings to earn interest. So I am continually "rolling" my money over.

While trying to live within your means works you need to also fund out of your cash flow an emergency fund and an annual costs fund. Once those are funded , everyday buffets don't make such an impact from needing a new washer to a long call to the plumber.

Figuring out what works

I have OA in one hip and can't move as quickly as I need to to get my heart rate up during cardio. I've learned that moving my arms, and keeping them above chest level, easily helps to raise my heart rate. I get an upper body workout at the same time, and have improved my balance and coordination.

No impulse buying

I used to think a lot of clothes were better than a few good pieces. After all if i could get 5 cheap pieces for the price of one good piece wasn't I saving money? No.

Start the Day With the Right Mindset

Each morning I spend about a half hour feeding my mind. My menu includes a few passages from the bible, a couple of affirmations and an inspirational reading. It provides me with the right mindset to go out and face the world and to deal positively with whom or what I meet along the way.

Posture

A quick "realignment" to improve your posture:
1. Stand up straight (or while walking).
2. lift your arms straight out to the sides from your body (so your body and arms make a T-shape).
3. turn your palms upwards, which naturally turns your whole arm a bit.
