Don't plan it all. Let life surprise you a little. ~ Julia Alvarez Physical Health Eat Well Sure, veggies are so good for you. But did you know there are some nutrients that you can’t get from veggies? https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/7-nutrients-you-cant-get-from-plants Be Active 2! 4! 6! 8! How many days are we going to appreciate?! The correct answer is... it depends. https://www.gq.com/story/how-many-days-a-week-should-you-work-out Let's move! The attached timer is called Mini Ladders. You'll find 15 moves, each one its own mini ladder. You'll start at the bottom of each one, cimb on up, and then start at the bottom again of the next one.

Reading is a source of inspiration and can literally make a difference in your life. https://greatergood.berkeley.edu/article/item/how_reading_fiction_can_shape_our_real_lives Social Health Sometimes it is all about you. How you share that is important though. Self-promotion - successful self-promotion - is walking a fine line. https://my.happify.com/hd/the-humble-persons-guide-to-self-promotion/?et=441c19ed-6416-491f-895b-f2841d5fd7a0 Posts from HealthyExpatParent.com/Facebook What an interesting question: Are you an elk parent or a bison parent? https://www.outsideonline.com/2399414/are-you-elk-parent-or-bison-parent? New post: I had to do this once, way back when the kids were little, and my husband was in Kabul. It was late - well past the boys’ bedtime - but the 24-hour pharmacy finally just got the medicine my youngest needed. I couldn’t leave them home, and so I bundled them into the car in their jammies, and they all fell asleep in the car as we drove over to pick up the medicine. I felt like such a criminal, trying to figure out if I should wake them up, or take the 3 minutes to run in without them. When I got back to the car, there was one parked next time mine, and a woman stepped out. I thought, ‘here it comes...’. She told me that she had been watching the car and the kids to make sure they were okay while her husband ran in to get their medicine. I have to say, I was not expecting that bit of support from this woman; an unexpected gift on that otherwise challenging evening. https://www.scarymommy.com/left-kids-alone-real-danger/? Happy Monday! Hope you had a nice weekend! My link for you is a short article about the benefits of inconveniences. Yes, you read that right: sometimes, the best thing for you is to have less data on your phone (incentive to use it less), and to get your own food instead of having it delivered (incentive to walk). https://kokumura.medium.com/when-inconveniences-can-make-your-life-more-whole-fa443e18d566?mc_cid=0c4f16b0cb&mc_eid=ee87f205f3 New recipe: So you think making bread is too complicated? Wait until you try this awesome version! Very little effort + a bit of time = tasty homemade bread for dinner (and breakfast and lunch...) Enjoy! https://www.heprecipe.com/post/sesame-bread New post: It's March so we've switched the focus of the articles to Social Wellness. Here's a few suggestions for you and for your family for positive changes you might incorporate. https://www.healthyexpatparent.com/post/5-things-social-wellness-for-you-and-for-your-family Be your best, friends
