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!

A man is not very tired. He is exhausted

I know. This is days after the initial blow of learning that this wonderful human being's life ended. What in the world. Talk about a cherished existence. The man my parents still rave about because of his stand up comedy, the man who forever changed the way I say "Hellloooooo" in an older British woman's voice, this great giant. How sad. I feel for the fact that Robin hit a level from which he could not rise. Depression, anxiety, stress are awful beasts.

I do not believe in the mentality, that someone who takes their life is selfish. Sure, it's not the kindest thing to leave behind for loved ones to cope with, but if something has it's grasp on a person, well, choices are made. It is devastating that there is still so much stigma for diseases like depression and anxiety. What?! Get the hell out of here with that mess. I would not wish it upon the biggest naysayer even to prove a point. So, to that, I say screw the assholes saying derogatory …

My dear, If at first you don't succeed, throw on another accessory & try, try again

Off to try, try again!

Anything is possible with sunshine and a little pink -Lilly Pulitzer

Today is a good day, my friends. Today means at the 6 o'clock hour I shall enter a four day weekend. Full of what, you ask? So far on the agenda is:

-trying out a very new and deliciously enticing restaurant known as Cooper's Hawk and Winery;
-finishing the rest of season 5 and all of season 6 for Sons of Anarchy-which is phenom BTW;
-and enjoying the beautiful weather we are projected to experience, with extra SPF of course.

I like to call this agenda a little something known as living the American dream indeed.

Oh and I'll be toting around my newly obtained Kate Spades. Surprise 75% off sale, what? I CANNOT wait for the tote! I'll give you a hint until I can show the new ol'gal off #baconeggandcheeseplease :):)

Any how, I have to go shopping now ( Love a good Pretty Woman reference) get to finishing my day so the fun can begin. Hope everyone has a safe, fun, relaxing good time. Or go wild and have to retrace events to determine how good it really was. Ju…
