Even if we organize, zip tie or tape wires, they seem to always become a mess and you can never figure out which wire goes where. We bought a package of multi-colored electrical tape & put a piece of tape around the wire at the end that goes into the TV and then put a matching piece on the back of the component , this cuts down on confusion since we have Blu Ray, stereo, a VCR & kids that pull out the wires to play video games

Every day I plan for what needs to be done and then tick it off my list. That list can be in my head or on paper. Items on list are shower, clean and tidy house, eat 3 meals and 1 or two snacks, drink 8 cups of water daily in any form(herbal tea, water with lime or just water) walk the dogs, deal with interpersonal relationships, budget and pay bills, talk to my soul and pray.
give myself a break when necessary after all I cannot be all things to all people and I am not a machine either.
I am almost always moving. I cannot just sit still, even in a chair. when I am on the phone, I usually pace, when I am sitting for longer than 20 minutes I have to get up and physically do something for moment or two. or my leg bounces. Its just the way i am wired. But its not a solution I would recommend for most. It comes with some not so fun side effects: anxiety, cloudy thinking, and occasionally panic attacks. But this is how I work! :) 41
I am a chocolate lover so staying away from chocolate is important for me because I am most likely to over do it... until now!! Fiber one chocolate bars umm... not often but every now and then, 90 cals and they really tame that sweet tooth.
