Self Help: Tips for Life + a free Snuggie

10 Tips for Navigating the Waters of Life. Keen insights on managing life's difficult challenges.

Freeing Yourself from Limiting Beliefs. Learning how to have a more open mind.

Command a room, when you walk in. Here are some good tips for living it up at parties and learning to enjoy them, rather than dreading them.

Develop better posture. The art of sitting or standing up straight might seem like something out of a 1950's etiquette class, but it actually plays an important role in staying energized and efficient throughout your day at the office. Here's why:

Health and home weblog Real Simple claims that by slouching, our body takes in as much as 30% less oxygen than we'd take in with good posture. When we sit slumped over (which is easy to do if you spend a great deal of time at the computer), we aren't just harming our posture, but our bodies' ability to keep our energy up.

Next time you you're feeling a little down in the dumps or need a little boost at work, check to see if your chin is up and your shoulders are back (or try other methods to fix your PC posture). It could mean the difference between making your workday frumpy or fabulous.

Ten Simple Way to Spend Less Money

Wowsers, here is a good list of ways to cut cost and save money. I am still using Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University and have only about 1.5 years left to being debt-free (minus my school loans which I won't be paying off early). The way I figure it, every little bit of information that can help me save money is a good thing.

The Pumpkins are Here

I am sure that you probably already know that but for anyone who reads this blog and doesn't know, we have a yard full of them. Our pumpkins are for sale and we're selling them Monday through Friday from 12:00 Noon to 6:00 PM and Saturday through Sunday from 10:00 AM through 6:00 PM.


Was summer too short? Are you still working too much? Here is a great post about the necessity of taking a break from it all and it is something you can do without leaving home.
