LOVE the video! You two are just a hoot! I think your list of 5 things is spot on! #2 the Snack break – reminds me of “rug time” in kindergarden – I think I’d just add a few minutes of breathing deep since I’m too old to be gettin up and down from a rug anymore! Fresh air is a great suggestion too – when the weather is icky just some exercise does it for me – five or ten min. I’m either energized afterwards or really need a nap – I make both work for me, haha! And Jason, your brain dump – wow – SO necessary! I’m an early morning journal junkie and I loosely plan my day, or make lists of what I absolutely MUST do that day.
I have a “thing” about gratitude. I wake up each day with it – yes, glad to be here, world! Thanks for the opportunity to BE here! I also end each day with it – not as a critic bashing myself over what I did not accomplish, or how I may have done something better, but an honest moment of thanks for everything/everyone. Makes for a good nite’s sleep!
Love you guys!
Thanks for the nice comment! I do think one of the travesties of adulthood is the loss of “rug time.” I think the world would be a lot less hectic if we all took a short afternoon nap!
I like your perspective on gratitude, as well. Just taking a few moments each day to think of something we’re thankful for does wonders at putting our problems into perspective.
Thanks for watching!
Hey Kim and Jason:
Thanks for an entertaining show. Jason I enjoyed your Abe Lincoln speech reference to sharpening the saw in order to become more effective. Also, I enjoyed your suggestions for clarity. In the past I have done some meditation in a previous yoga class and that really helped me achieve some clarity. I’m at a point in my life where, once again, I need to make some big-picture decisions and need clarity more than ever…so I signed up for a meditation class. I’ve only been to one, so I’ll keep you updated here or on my blog. Oh, and I enjoyed the Jim Gaffigan clip. Well, my Hot Pocket is ready and I got to go. Thanks again!
Thanks Tim. Glad you enjoyed the show. Jim Gaffigan rocks! Hot Pockets…not so much.
I will definitely be interested to hear what you have to say about the meditation experience. We all have so much noise in our lives I can’t imagine that it couldn’t at least do some good!
I think you need to keep Lucy away from the candy. :-)
Yes…yes, that sounds like a good idea.
