"What I regret most in my life are failures of kindness." ~ George Saunders



Physical Health Eat Well Wait, stop! Put down that potato chip! (also another argument for eating minimally processed naturally occurring foods!) https://www.nytimes.com/2021/02/18/well/eat/food-addiction-fat.html Be Active 7. It’s a small number, right? 7 moves to build your strength. Anyone can start with 7 moves. https://www.self.com/story/8-strength-exercises Let's move! A challenging workout, for sure, but I know you can do it. You'll start with one exercise, then add another, then another, and another, until you have a 'stack' of seven exercises. The catch: each round is a different version of that exercise. Suffice it to say: you will have worked your whole body in 27 minutes! Start your music! https://www.intervaltimer.com/timers/10267068 Spiritual Health I admit: there are times when acts of self care feel completely selfish. Sometimes that gift to yourself is exactly what you need, though, and it's okay that it isn't the best for everyone else around you. https://medium.com/better-advice/10-selfish-actions-you-should-never-feel-guilty-about-1ff4d8142868 Mental & Emotional Health Have you ever noticed when you get in a grumpy mood, it can be really hard to focus on anything good? It takes deliberate effort to get out of that funk ... and it is worth the effort! https://greatergood.berkeley.edu/video/item/how_to_notice_the_good_things_in_your_life? Social Health A good friend is a gift. https://www.mindbodygreen.com/articles/how-to-be-a-good-friend? Posts from HealthyExpatParent.com/Facebook What do you say to your kids about eating and diets? What do they hear from their friends, from social media, from other adults they interact with regularly? It's important for them to understand that 'diet' is not actually a BAD word; your diet is what you eat. https://www.outsideonline.com/culture/active-families/kids-diet-culture-advice Happy Monday! Are you starting to gear up for Halloween? I don't know about you, but I find mannequins especially creepy. https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/spooky-mannequin-mountain New recipe: You know that stress you feel when you invite your vegan friends over and you want to make something they can enjoy, without having to make seven different dishes? This is the perfect option because EVERYONE will love this 'cheese'. https://www.heprecipe.com/post/almond-cheese-spread I was just chatting with a friend about feeling overwhelmed with schedules ... especially after such a long period of socially isolating. Now our teens are chomping at the bit to get out there and DO THINGS ALREADY. Feeling it? We hear you. Hang in there. https://yourteenmag.com/family-life/communication/teens-crazy-schedule New post: Enduring challenge circumstances help us to come out stronger on the other side, right? At least we hope that's where we end up. This is the story of my own challenging event and growth. https://www.healthyexpatparent.com/post/moving-past-the-rubble Be your best, friends
