When I do laundry, I make multiple trips to and from the laundry room. It increases my walking steps that I take throughout the day. Also, parking farther away from a store seems inefficient but it helps to increase steps. Plus, taking the cart back to the store takes time but increases my steps.

I have found that on a day, when I a not feeling motivated, or am feeling a bit down., if I begin to write down how I am feeling, or what is bothering me, then I begin to think of the good things and writing about them, I begin to feel "sparked". I want to get up and get going. Write in your blog when things are good, so you can look back on them. But journal when you struggle also. It is all motivating!
a LOT of life is out of my control...one thing that is NOT is the way I react to things..both good & bad things...I'm 43 and had a heart attack at 40 and currently have stage 4 Pancreatic cancer....I'm living like I am living...NOT like I am dying.
I really don't know of any other way to deal with these things. I've never been a whiner and don't intend to start now. My life is good and full and I feel well..I have much to be thankful for and I make the choice to be thankful.
