TWIN CITIES MARATHON story
MOVEMENT – Everyday activity panel …. STORY ABOUT THE STAIRS…..ATT – it’s not complicated
The gov’t guidelines – 60 min, 30 min….150 minutes of heart pumping exercise!
Reducing stress can help you heart!!
I don’t find time to exercise, I make time to exercise… CREATIVITY…. Pedals, standing work station….Time management – I don’t have time – I choose to do something that I think is more important.
Work-life balance is not a state. It is a fluid goal and while the pursuit of it is great, it doesn't really exist. Strive to add other parts to your life to "balance" the work part but don't kill yourself when you don't get this ephemeral balance. I worry that people berate themselves for never having balance, which is another kind of stress, guilt, equally bad as high work stress. so my view: pursue it, but don't fixate on the state.
Powerful thoughts!!! 60,000 thoughts a day and 70 % of them are negative! Turn to your neighbor – you are awesome!

Food grows and dies. It isn’t created.
Food rots, wilts, and becomes generally unappetizing,
typically rather quickly.
Food doesn’t need an ingredient label (and probably
isn’t in a package either).
Food doesn’t make health claims.
