Take Two – Day 11

Day 11 – Physical Whew, we dug deep yesterday.

Spiritual Wellness – Day 10

Day 10 – Spiritual Today’s post is difficult. It is the first dedicated solely to the topic of spiritual wellness. Due to the complexity and individuality of this topic, I’m hesitant to provide much education as I typically would during this part of my daily writings. You see, in order for us to improve our spirituality…

Power of the Plank – Day 9

Day 9 – Physical Going back to the “less is more” theme, I present today’s physical fitness all-star: the plank.

Sweet Exchange – Day 8

Day 8 – Physical/Social Cravings. We all have them. You’re merrily typing away in the middle of your afternoon when one thought permeates your consciousness and comes barreling at you like a semi: Snickers. Must. Have. Now. Starburst. Chips. Coke.

Mindful Mouthful – Day 5

Day 5 – Emotional Mindfulness. I’ve heard this term thrown around quite a bit over the last few years and if you asked me if I knew what it meant, I’d have said yes. Just like I did to my good friend who then asked me to explain it to her. “Err… Uhh.. Well it’s…

Sweet Slumber – Day 4

DAY 4 – Physical This is the day I’m branching from the less is more attitude. When it comes to sleep— I promise you less is most definitely not more. We live in a go-go-go society where getting an adequate amount of sleep appears to be increasingly less important… and getting by on minimal sleep…

Social Media Sunlight – Day 3

DAY 3 – Social/Emotional If you haven’t realized that we live in a negative world, then you my friend, are not paying attention. I don’t believe there is a person alive who could say they’ve completely eluded the ever-present rampages of negativity often seen on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Sickness, unpleasant jobs, financial woes, marriage…
