Stop doing this ONE thing and boost motivation instantly

I don’t consider myself a complainer. As I typed that sentence I instantly flashed back to all the posts I wrote about my arthritic knee, being overwhelmed and stressed out, and all the general frustrations of life.  So let me start again: I would like to consider myself a non-complainer.

5 Times you get in your own way… and how to stop it

We’ve been our new house for three weeks now, and I’ve come to a number of realizations. One, is how even though we moved only 12 miles from our former house, it may as well be on another planet.  I do my shopping at all new stores, including an organic grocer with the apparent tagline: If…

How to stay mentally sharp after 50

I have anxiety issues. If you’ve read any of my prior posts (see links below) I’m sure this comes as no surprise. I’ve talked about my battle with panic attacks, which began in my teens when I was rushed to the hospital after I passed out from hyperventilating. So that was fun. It didn’t end…

3 Non-negotiable keys to weight loss success (plus a bonus tip!)

I’ve never been a big negotiator, even at yard sales and swap meets where you’re expected to haggle. It makes me uncomfortable.  I’m sure this weirdness can be traced back to some childhood issue.
