My thoughts, about thoughts
Thoughts are something that can stress us out and ruin our day. Here’s a great way to reevaluate these negative thoughts and move on with our day!
1. Is this thought true?
2. Can you absolutely know that it’s true?
3. How do you react? What happens when you believe that thought?
4. Who would you be WITHOUT that thought?
Trauma, large or small they affect us all
These can be the big things, like car accidents and broken bones...
but also the small things. Like sitting throughout the day and those little repetitive motions we unconsciously do all day.
You are what you eat, or are you?
I have only one thing to say,
LISTEN TO YOUR BODY.
It's generally telling the truth on what you need. Don't get in your own way along your health journey.

A Parable of Sauntering
by Albert W. Palmer
Excerpted from The Mountain Trail and Its Message (1911)
There is a fourth lesson of the trail. It is one which John Muir taught me [during an early Sierra Club outing].
There are always some people in the mountains who are known as "hikers." They rush over the trail at high speed and take great delight in being the first to reach camp and in covering the greatest number of miles in the least possible time. they measure the trail in terms of speed and distance.
One day as I was resting in the shade Mr. Muir overtook me on the trail and began to chat in that friendly way in which he delights to talk with everyone he meets. I said to him: "Mr. Muir, someone told me you did not approve of the word 'hike.' Is that so?" His blue eyes flashed, and with his Scotch accent he replied: "I don't like either the word or the thing. People ought to saunter in the mountains - not hike!
"Do you know the origin of that word 'saunter?' It's a beautiful word. Away back in the Middle Ages people used to go on pilgrimages to the Holy Land, and when people in the villages through which they passed asked where they were going, they would reply, "A la sainte terre,' 'To the Holy Land.' And so they became known as sainte-terre-ers or saunterers. Now these mountains are our Holy Land, and we ought to saunter through them reverently, not 'hike' through them."
John Muir lived up to his doctrine. He was usually the last man to reach camp. He never hurried. He stopped to get acquainted with individual trees along the way. He would hail people passing by and make them get down on hands and knees if necessary to see the beauty of some little bed of almost microscopic flowers. Usually he appeared at camp with some new flowers in his hat and a little piece of fir bough in his buttonhole.
Now, whether the derivation of saunter Muir gave me is scientific or fanciful, is there not in it another parable? There are people who "hike" through life. They measure life in terms of money and amusement; they rush along the trail of life feverishly seeking to make a dollar or gratify an appetite. How much better to "saunter" along this trail of life, to measure it in terms of beauty and love and friendship! How much finer to take time to know and understand the men and women along the way, to stop a while and let the beauty of the sunset possess the soul, to listen to what the trees are saying and the songs of the birds, and to gather the fragrant little flowers that bloom all along the trail of life for those who have eyes to see!
You can't do these things if you rush through life in a big red automobile at high speed; you can't know these things if you "hike" along the trail in a speed competition. These are the peculiar rewards of the man who has learned the secret of the saunterer!
Finding your for...ever(pillow)
Many people ask me in the office, what kind of pillow should I use?
Many times I say, "whatever works!"
Which I understand isn't in the slightest bit helpful. This was my answer to a bantering conversation that ultimately led to little help. Which frustrated me to NO-END.
Then I met Steve.
Just by simply placing a zipper and a separate fill bag.
You can CUSTOMIZE your pillow.
No more fuss, no more fluffing, remove to your liking.
Sleep on it. (Literally.)
If you need to adjust, easy enough. Take more out or add some back in.
I promise, it comes with enough filling. If not, you can always order more.
Steve founded a company called InfiniteMoon where they created the perfectly adaptable pillow for any sleeper.
When first presented with one, I immediately thought back to every hotel experience where I couldn't find the right pillow fill amount.
Some too fluffy. Some too flat.
The Everpillow solves that issues.
I have been using my pillow for around 4 months. I honestly removed about 60% of the contents. Like I said above, it comes with quite a lot of fluff. (The literal kind.)
Speaking of fluff, it comes with 3 options:
Blend of Both.
I personally got the blend. So the choice is yours...
...Get the blend.
So I have good news for you. I have a coupon code for 10% OFF
Yes, I get it. It's a play on my name. But I promised that I would Guide, Educate and Empower you towards Discovering your potential and I don't like breaking promises.
Go check out their website to learn more about the philosophy and mission of the company...or just cut to the chase and grab up a pillow.
My recommendation, The Original with a Blend of Both pillow fill. You will not be disappointed.
I've posted the InfiniteMoon website directly or just follow the link DISCOVERSLEEP link above or the button below to grab up your new friend with...sleeping benefits today.
