"We just need one friend that gets us and lets us be us.  They let us be happy.  They let us be sad.  They let us go radio silent sometimes with no questions asked and they love us anyway." 


Physical Health


Eat Well


You may think that the best way to lose weight is to simply eat less... then why not just jump right to skipping meals?  Turns out, this is actually not going to help you lose weight because your body will not respond in a constructive way (no one functions well when they are hangry, and the body tries its best the keep things going when incoming calories are running in shortage by shutting down 'unnecessary' systems like skin, etc.).  The best plan, instead, is to eat less but to choose your foods wisely.

Be Active


You don't have to be traveling to appreciate a full-body routine that requires no more than a bit of floor space (with a mat, if you have it) and you'll hit every large muscle group in your body.  And - perhaps the best part -  you'll feel a bit more centered and relaxed when you are finished. https://www.mindbodygreen.com/articles/five-exercises-you-can-do-anywhere

Let's move!


This work out is called A + B = C because you will do one move, do a second move, and then a combination move with the two.  Each single move (A and B) will be 30 seconds long; the combination (C) will be 1:00.  There are 9 combinations, and then you have a Round-up round with 30 seconds of each C move.

Spiritual Health

We're not always going to be 'happy'.  But there are often warning signs before we crash and burn.

Mental & Emotional Health


You think you manage to leave work at work and be home and present for your children.  They may not agree with you.

Social Health

The thing is, even introverts benefit from socializing.  We all suffer when we are lonely.  And, further, if we know this to be true, how can we reach out to others to help stave off their loneliness? https://my.happify.com/hd/how-loneliness-affects-us/ Posts from HealthyExpatParent.com/Facebook

So, balance. We can't ask our kids to put down something we don't, so it's a good suggestion for us to have our own balance when it comes to tech and devices. https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/on-parenting/6-ways-parents-can-help-kids-strike-a-balance-between-screen-time-and-the-real-world/2019/02/11/ Today is Random Acts of Kindness Day, which kicks off Random Acts of Kindness week. Just fyi. Hope you can do as many RAK as you want to and spread the kindness.  https://www.randomactsofkindness.org/kindness-ideas
