Physical Health Eat Well
It's important to remember that 'variety' in your diet is good, but not if that means that you think that you should eat a plethora of choices from the snack food aisle. Instead the term 'variety' more refers to eating a wide array of fruits, veg, and whole grains. I know. Not as exciting, but better for your waistline and heart health! http://time.com/5361632/diverse-healthy-diet/ Fact of the matter is that we Americans can be pretty oblivious to what sort of impact our choices and actions have on the planet. In fact, there is not enough land to sustain the diet if everyone in the world were to eat as the average American does. https://www.treehugger.com/sustainable-agriculture/theres-not-enough-land-everyone-world-follow-us-dietary-guidelines.html Be Active As they say, 'time marches on.'

Are we trying too hard to be happy? Is the very effort making us unhappy? And, maybe this is like the forrest vs the trees sort of thing, but if we don't know how it feels to be unhappy, do we know what it feels like to be happy? http://time.com/5356657/trying-to-be-happy/- Social Health
Being socially 'savvy' and being able to navigate the minefield of truths and semi-truths one might hear from the mouths of others ... it's nice to think we can accomplish this level by the time we are adults, right? Hm. Turns out, we might not be as good at it as we think we are. https://www.ozy.com/acumen/think-youre-immune-to-bs-nope-we-all-fall-for-the-pseudo-profound Links from FB/Blog Isn’t this one of the hardest parts of having to move every 2 to 4 years? Again, and again, being the proverbial new kid on the playground. Well, guess what? Even big people can make new friends, https://www.purewow.com/wellness/adult-friend-making-tips? Baked oatmeal?

Isn't it nice to know it is not always something you did? Sometimes, your kid(s) just fall apart. It's knowing the reason/cause that is most useful because then, maybe, you can help prevent or fix it. https://www.healthyexpatparent.com/single-post/2018/08/23/The-good-kid
Sometimes we forget that we have an amazing kid because we are so busy looking for the things they are NOT doing, instead of focusing on all that they are.
Be your best, friends
