What I'm Reading This Week #2

Happy Friday everyone!

We've had a work week's amount of time to settle back into our normal routine and it's funny how your body craves that after an extended vacation.  It's nice to be back in our own workout space, able to drink as much water as our bladders can handle without worrying where bathrooms are out in the wild and such.

Now, let's ease right into...

Doing This Activity 1 Hour a Week Lowers Heart Attack Risk by 70 Percent  (Yay!  Already doing it!)

How to 'cheat' on your diet without ruining it  (We know our Saturdays have always been our downfall honestly, didn't care enough to change it.  Now that we've got vacation weight to get off this the perfect time to actually work on that.)

How to Calm Your Anxiety in 10 Seconds  (Some really great tips in here.)

Think twice before making these New Year's resolutions in 2019   (So basically sit in your living room on the floor with the blinds closed waiting to die.  But I do agree with not joining a gym.  WAY too many good free resources on YouTube including our favorites of Fitness and Jessica Smith TV)

'Dead Butt Syndrome' Is A Real Thing. Here's How To Tell If You Have It.  (Yep, totally have it.)

10 Simple Ways to Hygge Up Your Life  (Every time I say hygge in my head it's like an old timey car horn....ha-ooooooooooo-gah!)

Sleeping Next to Your Phone Could Seriously Damage Your Health   (Um, this is seriously scary.  I've started switching it to airplane mode at night.)

Psychologists Explain Why It Feels So Good To Sing In Your Car  (Seriously, I give a concert in my car.   I have felt people looking at me and if I feel it for a long while, I look over at them and keep on singing.  Priceless!)

12 Ways Therapists Deal With Anger When They're Pissed Off  (All lines up with a lot about what we've been reading the past few months.)

The Coddling of the American Mind  (Yep.  We are so screwed.)

This Is the Date When You Should Take Down Your Christmas Decorations  (Articles like this always crack me up but I do agree with the roundabout date.  I do leave up a gingerbread house candle every day though because like Scrooge "I will keep Christmas in my heart all the year.")

I don't think we've got any real plans for the weekend which is fine.  I think we'll give the Christmas decorations another week since we were gone 3 weeks out of the season.

Got any plans for the weekend?

  1. Happy Friday everybody! Get your dead butts out there and enjoy it!

  2. In the anxiety post, the grounding and counting options are two that my therapist has had me use and they are incredibly helpful, especially when I'm out of the house and panic kicks in. I count cars in the parking lot, how many letters on license plates, etc. Very good articles!

    I have a meeting tomorrow morning then I get to have my hair done after 2 1/2 months, so I'm really looking forward to washing that gray right out of my hair. LOL We're getting snow overnight so the dogs will want to romp around in it tomorrow so we'll enjoy some playtime.

    Have a super weekend!
