The healthier version of yourself

This morning was rather exciting. As I went to my mailbox at school hoping to find my contract for next year and instead found my monthly health newsletter.

I know you are all as concerned with your health as I am mine so, I will fill you in on the latest news in health industry. The one from a few months back can be found here- All you need to know about staying healthy 

 

1. Recipe for healthy living:

5 daily affirmations

3 balanced meals

2 hugs from someone special ( because hugs from creepy people are unhealthy)

2 healthy snacks

1 handful of close friends

 

2. Compression socks

The studies are mixed about whether you should be wearing them. But, all studies agree they do work in recovery. So don’t go rush out and get your compression socks too soon please make sure to wait until you are recovering from your original socks.

3. Breaking free from co dependency

Signs you are co dependent. Keeping quiet to avoid arguments, being always worried what others will think of you, If you feel like a “bad person” when you a mistake, and have trouble saying no. If these describe you, then you may be co dependent. If that is so contact a health professional as we have no advice for you.

4. Bank of Mom and Dad

Are your children living off of you? You don’t want to support them forever, do you? First, create a plan. Second, Charge them interest. Third, Require them to help around the house. And lastly, lead by example. With these easy steps it will only be a matter of days before they are off your couch and on someone else’s.

Each newsletter is concluded with a quote. This months-

“Just think about how happy you’d be if you lost everything and everyone you had right now, and then somehow got everything back again.” – Kobi Yamada

Fa la la la la la la

It’s november. Which means I have begun celebrating christmas. Controversial I know. But I love love love christmas. So I celebrate for two months. You want to make something of it. Then we can take it outside. I worked with inner city youth in gangs. I can take you out. Bring it.

In celebration of christmas I am going to list my top five christmas stories.

5. The christmas bench: A friend of mine’s in college mother decided that year they did not need a tree so she put out a bench and said put the presents on the bench.

4. The edible tree: In 8th grade we went to my Aunt’s house and instead of decorating the tree with ornaments we made and decorated gingerbread and sugar cookies and hung them all over the tree.

3. My honey used to trick grandma into opening all the christmas presents in the middle of the night and then secretly wrap them up so no one would know.

2. One christmas my parents gave each of us 250 dollars in ones as out only present. They gave us 12 hours to spend the money. If we had any left we had to give it back. We celebrated christmas that early early so all the stores were open. I felt like I was on a game show. Except for the part when I had to explain to the lady at gap why i was giving her 200 dollars in ones.

1. My daughter’s first christmas:  It was awesome. Need I say more?
