What's good, well being?


I'm running around like a lunatic these days.  We have a lot of work going on, we spent time traveling for work and play, and overall we're on the go-go-go.  Whilst running around, I am very much learning what's good for my mind and body.  I try to be aware of how I'm feeling, be it tired, worn down, and essentially ineffective.  I don't much like feeling like I'm chasing my tail so I've narrowed down a few things that help me through and if nothing else, would like to document what works/doesn't in my never ending quest to live a fulfilled, dedicated, and balanced life.

-Turn the sound down.  That's right; I'm going against the age old "throw the windows down, turn the radio up" recommendation for living in the moment.  I suggest silence.  Or incite gentle chatter among copilots.  Marveling concept I know; enjoy the company you keep.  Either way, it's just nice to hear the sounds of traffic around you, of the wind flowing along with you, and simply listening to the right now.

-Step away.  A short drive, a brisk walk, a basic stretch.  This is nothing new or earth shattering in the well being and healthy living advice department.  Never the less, worth a millionth mention.  

-Loosen up.  Pay attention to your body's tension.  I struggle with holding stress/anxiety in my shoulders and back and I'm amazed every time I catch myself how I'm not waltzing around hunched over and miserable.  Treat yo self to some basic TLC by lessening the physical strain you hold on your body and you will find a beautiful existence on this side of the coin.

-Eat well.  For god's sake, do it already.  So many ailments stem from poor nutrition and it's time it stopped.  It does not have to cause a million dollars and it is not unrealistic to do so.  It's worth the positive effects it induces.  Read labels, scout the best establishments for sales and prices (farmer's markets, locally owned produce/meat vendors, etc), and find people who inspire you to do all this.  Here are some of my very favorites who continuously help me learn about and develop for this path I'm on:

Happy Tuesday!

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T.

While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”.

Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration:

Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better.

Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See what I did t…

Blogtober Day 26, Who would play you in a movie...

Ohhh good one, Blogtober.

Someone once told me I reminded them of Drew Barrymore. They didn't say if it was for look or personality, so I'm not sure where they drew the conclusion from. See what I did there?

I threw this out to one of my very best and oldest friends Andrea. Talking it out, we agreed that Drew and I do share some similar qualities, both in personality and in dressing and accessorizing. Andrea reasoned that Drew is quirky and a little less traditional, much like me. I reasoned we have the same headbands:

I also recalled that when I was a little girl, everyone thought I looked like a young Drew Barrymore. Both my parents have said people would come up to them all the time and remark on my resemblance to her in that movie Firestarter:

Whatever it is, I would absolutely be pleased if Drew played me in a movie.

Now, if Penelope Garcia was a real person and not a character on a TV show (Criminal Minds), she would undoubtedly play me in a movie:

Irrational Rationing...

The past year of my life has been spent blogging; two of my four classes necessary for graduation required them and at my internship I blogged. Why not give the world my opinion on any subject I choose? It's free and it's mine to share, right? Absolutely!

So, to start, what do I want my tone to be? Tone is a very important factor, you know. It can make or break a piece. People want to identify a tone or purpose, which they often misconstrue as meaning the same thing. Oh, people-my favorite breed:)

So let's see. There's:
Informative? Will I provide people with knowledge about various subjects and try to teach? Eh.

How about super upbeat and positive? Like, I'll provide people with a reason to live to log on to read the next uplifting piece of blog. Eh.

How about super dreary? Dreary works. Most people would rather be perfectly miserable than divinely happy. Eh. Decisions.

Hmm, maybe all my posts will be so contemplative. Hey! That's not a bad racket. Contemplative in…
