Journal to Healthier Living – Week 14

Welcome my friends.  I’m tweaking my weekly journey with my healthier living.  It’s a step in the right direction for sure.  I hope you come along for the ride.  Instead of day-to-day comments, I’m going to post something from my personal journal to share.  Hope you enjoy.  Remember all of us go down this path and we are all in it together ❤

Week of 04/08-04/14/2018 – Week 14

“Dear Journal – It feels good to finally move a little bit more..not giant steps but a bit more.  I’m taking advantage of the good days.  The bad days I’m trying to be nice to myself.  Trying to live in the moment and tossing worries over my shoulder.  Living for the moment sounds so easy and we all attempt it.  But do we really live for the up-most potential in those words?  I’m trying and you know what?  I feel better – less worries, less stress.  Be happy.  I recently saw a sign that I bought for my office.  It reads, “Bloom where you are planted”.  I think that tells us a lot in our lives.  Don’t you?  Of course… life wouldn’t be perfect without having my new sign right near my old reliable sign of “Martha Stewart doesn’t live here.” LOL – Hey, I didn’t say I was perfect.”

This week walked: 7.05

TOTAL 2018 Miles:  105.07

TOTAL 2017 Miles:  541.06

  small goals turn into big accomplishments ❤

National Stress Awareness Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –

Today April 16th is a day that Bacon’s mom can definitely wrap her arms around – National Stress Awareness Day.  This day was created in 1992 sponsored by  the Health Resource Network (HRN). They started this holiday to increase public awareness of the causes and cures of stress.  And we all know that stress can come from a variety of different reasons:  paying bills, work, children, schedules, car problems, friends – you name it and stress can come from it.  And here in the United States with taxes being due yesterday, what better day to have this holiday then today?

Today is the day to acknowledge that you are stressed out and then do something about it.  Go for a walk.  Try some meditation.  Try some exercise.  Do some yoga.  Just lay down and relax.  Just for a bit, don’t concentrate on the wrongs in your life but concentrate on the things that you have to be grateful for.  Shrug off this stress even if it is just for today.  I know this afternoon me and Bacon are going to try yoga.  Wish us luck – his downward pig pose is not something I’m looking forward to – chitter chatter!
