The Beautiful Side of Life
...in the midst of quarantine ... Part VI
You are not Forgotten
Have you ever spent a lot of time working on a jigsaw puzzle, get to the end, and realize you're missing one piece? It just doesn't feel complete, even though you're just missing one little piece.
Without every single one of you, it's just not complete.
We are thinking about you and missing you. I know distance learning is not how we envisioned finishing out this year. But even with a distance between us, you have to know you are certainly not forgotten. Your achievements are not forgotten. Your hard work is not forgotten. Your smiles, energy, and constant keeping-us-on-our toes is not forgotten. Your lives are more important to us than you will ever realize!
Keep going guys ... we've got this.
The Fitness Challenge is FINISHED! (...ok, technically tomorrow...)
Give yourself a round of applause!
Ready for a new challenge?
Water is the lesser talked about areas of our fitness. Often when students are in my office I find myself asking some really basic questions: "Did you eat today? Have you been sleeping? Did you drink any water today?" I get that these aren't the answers to all of life's problems. However ... how can we expect to face the challenges that life throws our way if our bodies don't feel very good? And how can our bodies feel good unless we are treating them right?
I can't tell you how often I hear things like "I don't like water," or "I can't remember the last time I drank water." Google "the benefits of drinking water" and you'll find a seemingly endless list of the benefits of drinking water ... joints, muscles, brain function, skin, mood booster, fatigue zapper ...
So, no planks and push-ups this time (...unless you want to!) ... just grab your water bottles and get hydrated!
A general rule of thumb: 5-8 year old: 5 glasses (8 oz.)/day; 9-12 year old: 7 glasses/day;
13+: 8-10 glasses/day.
(PS: For all of you loophole finders ... "if my energy drink/coffee/soda/tea contains water, does that count as drinking water?" No.)
Try "Operation: Hydrate" through May:
Your Daily Dose of Good News is Here!
You are more beautiful than you think
It's easy to find five things we like about someone else, but how often do we find five things we like about ourselves? Being able to find the positive things in ourselves is far more important than we think. So, five nice things about yourself... go!
