Off the Rails…

Off the Rails…

"A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men" - Willy Wonka Do something crazy today. I don't mean rob a liquor store or push an old lady off a bridge...in fact, as a disclaimer, I would say don't do anything illegal or something that will cause bodily damage to anyone else. What I do mean is you should engage in something really fun that you might do if you were still a kid, or if you really let that young heart of yours have its way for a little while. Be creative.  Be wild.  Be inspired. Do something [...]

The Ears Have It

The Ears Have It

There are few things as annoying or useless as a person who hears you when you're talking, but doesn't actually listen to anything you're saying. You know the type, right?  They seem to be so much more interested in what they have to say than what you're saying.  It makes for a pretty silly "conversation", doesn't it?  It's not much fun and you end of feeling like you were in some sort of a competition that you weren't quite prepared for. I'm willing to bet you don't feel real fond of individuals like this, but you really need [...]

A Little Help

A Little Help

Help someone. Sounds pretty simple, right?  Well, in all honesty, it really is; but it's also one of the most meaningful deeds you will ever take on. Whether a person is stranded on the side of the road, looking for a certain section in the grocery store, needs assistance carrying a bag, has a question about how the process works at the DMV (by the way, let me know if you figure that one out), or maybe just needs someone to listen to their plight for a few minutes...the smallest gesture can have the greatest impact. Someone said that [...]

Have a Drink

Have a Drink

Today's tip?  An easy one.  Drink some water. I know, I know, it sounds a little annoying and cliche at this point.  And you've probably heard everyone from your ever-energetic neighbor who seems to be in perfect physical condition to your chiropractor, who scuba dives twice a week and only eats salmon on Thursday, how good it is for you to drink water. I heard a comedian last night talking about how drinking water has become the defacto cure for everything in our lives.  He was joking that people will say things like, "So, [...]

Live to Love

Live to Love

Here's the challenge...for one day, love everything and everyone around you. Make the conscious decision to love and show love in absolutely every aspect of your life. Love the people that you come into contact with, and deal with every situation in a loving way.  See the good in people, see the positive in circumstances, and let your love shine like the brightest light in a dark room. It's something that all of us should do every single day, but for now, just give it a try today.  I honestly believe that if our focus was to love [...]

Start

Start

You know that project that you keep putting off and haven't started yet?  Start. And that new program, whether it be a fitness routine or change in lifestyle of some sort...begin today. The goal you want to reach, the success you want to attain, the idea you have for something big; stop procrastinating and start making things happen! Just do it.  Do something.  Get moving.  Start! A good plan executed today is far better than a perfect plan never executed.  Whatever it is you happen to be waiting for that perfect time to [...]

Smell the Roses

Smell the Roses

Take some time to smell the roses.  And not just in an allegorical way.  I mean, seriously, get out there and smell the roses! Okay, I suppose any flower will do...the point is, get outside and sample some the amazing and miraculous Creation that surrounds you.  It's one of the most rewarding and yet simple things you can do for yourself. The act of getting outside alone will make you feel better, and if you can lose yourself, even if just for a few second, in some of the beauty of nature, it will send a shiver through your soul.  [...]

Let Them Know

Let Them Know

Make sure that the people you love the most in this world know how much you care about them.  Tell them. None of us are promised a tomorrow, and all of us will no doubt wish for one more opportunity to tell that special someone how much we love them once they've moved on from this life. You've probably heard it said that you should live each day as if it was your last.  That's pretty sage advice.  Although, if you're anything like me, that probably means you'd end up in jail at some point.  However, assuming you don't get crazy and [...]

Remember to Reboot

Remember to Reboot

Here's a tip that will serve you well all of your days.  When you're tired...rest! Chill.  Take a nap.  Sit with your feet up.  Exhale.  Just make sure you get some rest once in a while. As good as it is for you to stay active, it's just as good to make sure that your body and mind get some relaxation every now and then. It's a fast-paced life and it's an I-want-it-now culture, so I know it's not easy to even think about slowing down, let alone to actually do it.  But it will greatly benefit you to become conscious of your need [...]

Invest in the Good Stuff

Invest in the Good Stuff

Your time is a lot like your money.  You can spend it or you can invest it.  It's not something you can really afford to throw away, and it doesn't do you any good sitting around hoping you have enough of it later when you need it.  You either use it wisely or you end up with nothing to show for it. So here's some good advice for you from your self-improvement broker... Invest an hour of your time with someone you love. It could be your spouse, your son or daughter, your brother or sister, your mom or dad, your grandma or grandpa, [...]

Go With It

Go With It

Your intuition is there for a reason.  Go with it!  Follow your instincts, trust your gut.  Seriously, you got this stuff! Life is about choices and decisions, thoughts and actions; and you come with your very own personal guidance system to get you through all of it.  Cool, eh?  It's very cool.  As long as you're using it. Will you always be right?  Nope.  Will you make mistakes?  Yup. There isn't a better way to learn in this life than figuring out how not to do things.  The reason you want to listen to yourself and do [...]
