12 Steps to Making Me More Healthy



-- Stop avoiding stairs. Stairs are my new best friend.


-- Drink more water. American's are way more dehydrated than we realize.


-- Read more. A happy mind is a less-stressed-out mind.


-- Eat more veggies and fruits. Especially local varieties.


-- Eat smaller portions of a higher variety of foods. Boredom of the tastebuds leads to overindulgence.


-- Stop using the computer in bed. Beds are for sleeping in, not working in.


-- Go outside more. I hear there's this new invention out there called fresh air.


-- Stop stressing about my shops so much. Make what I love and people will follow.


-- Make an effort to get to church every week. God loves meeting me there.


-- Clean / throw away stuff more often. Dustbunnies clutter the mind as well as my living space.


-- Make more art. For fun, not for profit.


-- Eat less processed "food". Because it's not really food anyway.


  1. I like your 12 steps. I'm gonna give some of them a try too.

  2. This is a great list. I hope you will consider linking up on my Healthy Tuesday post tomorrow. :)

  3. This is a great list!! I try to do a lot of these things...some I am more successful at than others. The fact that "fresh air" in non-existent in Manhattan is really prohibiting me from accomplishing #7. And #3 would have a negative effect on me...I already read too much [law school=tons of horribly boring reading that makes me think too much]. I'm pretty good at 4, 5, 10, 11 & 12. For me, I'd need to add less TV & less solitaire on my phone to the list!! I need to find another way to relax that isn't so bad for me!! Good luck with accomplishing your list :)


  4. Great list. And I think reading does wonders for personal sanity and health!!

  5. Awesome list, I am working on a 90 day cleanse right now... not perfect at it but working on fulfilling a commitment to myself:)

I have come to the realization that I may have been mis-typed. I have often taken personality tests and generally come up with the result that I am INFP. I recently took a test that said I was INFJ actually, and the more I have been researching, the more that actually sounds like me.

What it really comes down to is the external/internal focus of the different functions (a topic that I'm still trying to wrap my head around, so I apologize if I don't explain it right). The I--J tends to actually function more as a "Perceiver" than a "Judger", contrary to what you might think (and vice versa for the I--P), which is a common reason these two types are mistaken for each other. How it actually plays out though is quite distinctive, which is why once I started reading more about INFJ's, I realized how much more like me it sounded. Basically, there are...

Vintage Travel Poster

One of our projects this coming term is to do a computer illustration of a painted vintage travel poster. I've been Googling some options and here are some that I like. Which would you pick?

80's Cartoons: Then and Now

I was browsing tv this morning while eating breakfast (tsk, tsk, I know...) and ran across a shocking sight. They've remade a BUNCH of the 80's cartoons, and not very flatteringly at that. I knew about Strawberry Shortcake and Care Bears, but check out some of these other ones, too! As an 80's child myself, I've often wished over the years that those old cartoons would make a comeback, this wasn't exactly what I meant!

Strawberry Shortcake: Then and Now
The 80's Strawberry people were reminiscent of the sugary treats that gave them their names. Now the characters look more like shrunken Barbie dolls.

Care Bears: Then and Now
Care Bears (and their cousins!) used to be a soft, cuddly bunch that liked to stare down bad guys every now and then. Is it just me, or do the new versions have unusually large heads? This somehow makes them look both younger and creepier at the same time.

My Little Ponies: Then and Now As with most 80's cartoons, the My Little Ponies were …
