Today’s Healthy Dose – Stress

Stress is not good. It’s not pleasant. It’s not fun. For example, the stress of having your credit card  blocked by your banking institution for suspected fraud, EVERY TWO MONTHS! This is stressful.

Sometimes you can manage the stress through mindful breathing or exercise. Sometimes the best course of action is simply to eliminate the stressor.

B-bye, B of A….   Ahhh. I feel better already! 😉


Today’s Healthy Dose – A View

Are you sitting in a spot for most of the day that only yields a view of your monitor?  That simply will not do, you must create a view!  (Sorry, I’ve been in the mood to rhyme lately 😉

If you can’t see a window, put an object that makes you smile somewhere within your periphery. Something pretty, or sentimental, or motivating. It all works. Just something to remind you that quality of life exists beyond the four frames of your desktop.

Today’s Healthy Dose – Creative Blogger Award

To kick off my return, I’d like to thank Jen at A Venturing Girl for her nomination of A Healthy Dose for the Creative Blogger Award. I am deeply honored. As part of my acceptance of the award, I am supposed to share five facts about myself with all of you. The rules don’t specify that they have to be interesting facts, but I’ll try to lean in that direction. So….

  1. I have an amazing family, both immediate and extended, who provide me with unconditional love and support regardless of how wacky my ideas might sound.
  2. If I had to marry a food, it would be potatoes, hands down.
  3. My car’s name is Fabio. He’s a flaming red Dodge Charger with killer speakers and a Hemi.
  4. I have a short attention span, which I consider a blessing because it shields me from boredom.
  5. I love to dance; at a class, in the kitchen, in the produce section of the grocery store if there’s good music serenading from above.

I will now nominate 10 other bloggers for their creativity and dedication to sharing that creativity with others.

Look for my usual healthy rant, rave, or research results starting tomorrow!

Cheers to your health 🙂
