  1. I'm trying to follow the DASH diet - heavy on vegetables and fruit, but not always succeeding. :)

  2. I'm trying to live a more healthy life, in every way really. As I've said before, mind, body and soul.

  3. I'll be off on the long morning walk with the dog in a few minutes....but that may be more maintenance than improvement.

  4. I am trying to be more aware of my surroundings and making them to my liking:) I was inspired by this quote "Life is too short to be caretaker of the worng detail" and a book I am reading called "Romancing the Ordinary". Have been amazed at how much pleasure I have found in the simpliest things:)

  5. Lynn -- They gave me the DASH diet in my cardiac rehab. I think I skipped it because of all the veggies and fruit. I just can't see Ron getting with the program. Good luck.

    LL Cool Joe -- Concentrating on mind and soul I've had to give up on body.

    Jeanie -- Good for you. I have completed my designated cardiac rehab but am keeping my membership in the group so I can keep going on my own. Exercise is the best thing we can do for ourselves.

    Changes in the wind -- Sounds like a good and inspirational book. I'll have to look it over.

    I am trying to read aloud every morning. At one time I was a good speaker and even considered speech as my college major at one time. Won awards in high school for poetry interpretation and did a lot of public speaking during my career. Plus I won Ron's heart with my speaking voice. That is gone now and I slur my words and speak with my head down. Lazy talking I want to try to regain what I have lost.

  6. I got sick for the first time in my 50+ year old life and I think I've learned the importance of taking care of myself... I think I'm still learning and I know it's not easy.

  7. That is a lifelong project for me! Currently trying not to be so hard on myself and not obsess so much.

  8. Unlike Kitty, I should try to be a little hard on myself.

  9. This week I'm getting more sleep- Been feeling horrible with the pollen.
    I get too much exercise, n am now sore. My job is alot of moving n heavy lifting hours on end with less than 10 minutes to sit on my one break all night. Then I walk alot all the time. My tendons n feet need to rest more this week.

  10. I've always tried to take care of my body so nothing new (except I've add kick-boxing to my activities), but soul-wise it's always a work in progress :)

  11. cube -- If you figure out how to do that, share with the world.

    Riot Kitty -- I do obsess too much myself. It is a hard habit to break.

    Cliff -- I'm not sure where to go on this response. It could be completely innocent.

    Snaggle Tooth -- I ache just thinking about all you do plus the allergies on top of the pain...oh, bless your heart.

    Talon --Maybe you want to work on your body but leave your soul alone. You have a beautiful soul.

  12. I am trying to be patient when my husband buys things that he does not use or uses very little of. Then I use the rest even though I don't like them just to be a good human being and not waste.

  13. I meant I should be unhappy with a lot of things in my life but I'm happy. I'll be gone now.

  14. Well I am always working on staying happy - it is not a firm habit with me - so I need to try daily! sandie

  15. I made a new year's resolution (for the first time in years) to be a kinder, gentler, and less judgemental person this year. I've been working on controlling my snarkiness and it's becomming easier every day. Life feels kinder and gentler as I work to master those qualities.

  16. Munir -- Oh dear, my spouse and I both try things that we do not like and cannot finish using. It does make us feel very guilty when we end up wasting it.

    Cliff -- Of course! Easy to understand now.

    Chatty Crone -- It would wear me out to be as cheerful and happy as you.

    Pat MacKenzie -- I am a harsh person and am trying to be softer.

  17. I just try really hard to be less judgmental and more charitable in thought and spirit.

  18. Pat -- That doesn't sound like you however it is definitely something I need to work on too.

  19. I try not to sweat the small stuff at work anymore, plus I've decided that I'm not going to be a doormat anymore at work either.

  20. My physical therapist has told me that I need to improve my posture, so I am. Not easy though.

  21. We lost a dear friend in November, and one of the things that his wife regrets is that they spent too much time bickering over little things. So I am trying to be more flexible with my husband and not fuss about little things!
