Age is nothing but a number. I loved this post by Angela and I couldn’t agree more with her attitude. I feel like I am in the best shape of my life. 

The 8 dimensions of wellness.

As someone, who has never been on a diet, I am super-intrigued by this book: Why everyone should read Anti-Diet. I am not sure if I’ve been just lucky, or if I’ve always been intuitive about eating, and I clearly feel like I can’t have an opinion about dieting because I never really had to, but I also believe that intuitive eating sounds like a really healthy approach to food and well-being.

  1. You always share the best links! Really loved the one about knocking it the eff off. Though I feel as though it’s the democratic candidates who need to do less of the mud slinging in order to come together with a common purpose of defeating trump. I’m not sure why anyone takes so much issue with where Buttigieg’s $ comes from—if he stands a chance against trump and can get wealthy donors to stand behind him… why exactly does that matter?? We all know that elections and campaign trails require a lot of funding and investments. I’m just honestly sickened by all of it and I think a lot of people are this year, too.

    Here’s hoping we don’t have four more years of bullshit!

  2. I’m not sure why my name popped up as Charlie 🤷‍♀️ Lol —Charlotte

  3. Regarding the five lessons people learn too late – no. 3 on being present was a great reminder! I chose mindful for my word for the year and haven’t done a great job of it so far!

  4. I’ve been reading a lot about intuitive eating lately and it does seem like one of the better approaches to eating healthy. I’ve always struggled with weight and food, so it’s tough to find something that works long term.


  5. I like the ‘knock the eff off’ article. I really hope the party comes together and can defeat Trump but I can’t say I’m super hopeful about this… :…(

    I return my cart AND push all the cart to the back of the cart holder! Why is this so hard? I guess I get a feeling of satisfaction from pushing carts to the back of the cart holder. It’s not enough to just leave it at the front of the cart rack!

  6. Ooh, this looks like such a great links list. Off to read a few and peruse your blog. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Oh San, thank you so much for including my link of Omenakakku here.
    I think I never learnt the art of intuitive eating and I am working really hard on achieving that but it is tough. I do envy people with such a good knowledge of their body. As for the tv watching. I love doing it actually and mostly it’s not a wast of time to me. However will read the article, maybe I think differently afterwards.
