Same is the most important word in our vocabulary. It’s just a shorthand expression of empathy, I guess, and it means: ‘I know how you feel.’ It means: ‘You are not alone.’ It means: ‘You are not insane.’ Or maybe: ‘You are insane, but so am I.'” Posts from HealthyExpatParent.com/Facebook Amen to this! https://www.youtube.com/shorts/h1lUmNp-ZIg Probably one of the hardest things we've done as parents, saying "see you later" to our eldest as he begins his college journey. I am certain I am not the only parent hit by this absolute avalanche of emotions. https://www.theatlantic.com/family/archive/2018/08/why-it-feels-so-terrible-to-drop-your-at-kid-college/567847/ Happy Monday! Deep sea amazingness to include a new octopi nursery garden, a new octopus species and tripod fish. https://mashable.com/article/octopus-deep-sea A take on tofu that will crisp it up with beans, and serve it atop crunchy cabbage and a lovely peanut sauce. Easy enough for weeknight, esp if you do a bit of prep the night before. https://www.heprecipe.com/post/coconut-lime-tofu-and-cabbage-salad-bowls New post: Invisible labor: you do it. Do you acknowledge it, the energy you put into it? Does it make you happy? Do you get credit for it? https://www.healthyexpatparent.com/post/invisible-labor-15 Wellness News Around the 'Net Physical Health Eat Well What does what you eat have to do with the stress you are feeling? Well, turns out, a lot. https://my.happify.com/hd/twill-healthy-habit-replace-one-ultraprocessed-food-you-eat/ Be Active Planking. Love it or hate it, but can’t beat it for one hell of an effective exercise. https://www.runnersworld.com/uk/training/cross-training/a42281682/plank/ Let's move! Jumping ladders + plank challenge 5-10-15-10-5 We have four different exercises that we go through using this structure of reps. In between each group of reps, we stoke up the cardio burn by adding in a 50-second interval of jumping rope. So round 1 = 5 reps squats, 5 push-ups, 5 bridges, 5 toe touch crunches, then you do your jump rope. Round 2 is the same with 10 reps, etc. You don't actually need a jump rope; just move your arms as though you do have one, and jump your feet. If you do have one, all the better! Exercises in this workout: • Squats • Push Ups • Bridges • Toe Touch Crunches http://www.intervaltimer.com/timers/8056965
