Do something for someone else.


This time of year, many people are spending time with their families but some people are depressed. They feel they don’t have enough gifts and material things to make the season bright. If you have any resources give a random gift to a stranger or help a family in need. Do something for someone else. Make the holiday season bright for whoever crosses your path and stay safe.

Keep Your Brain Healthy


I was surprised to hear that the Hall of fame basket ball coach Pat Summit was diagnosed with early onset dementia. I hope we can find a cure for this but until then there are some things that we can do to keep our brains healthy.

1. Eat healthy, fresh, whole, organic foods. You know, antioxidants, veggies, fruits, nuts, water, and organic produce.
2. Be socially connected to real people. Fellowship with people. Have a party and listen to great music.
3. Engage in mentally stimulating activity, classes, games, etc. Read books, learn a new language, a new mental exercise game or puzzle, a new musical instrument, or any activity that is new to you and requires some mental stimulation.
4.Laughter is good for your brain. Hang around people that make you laugh. Smiling has been scientifically proven to improve mood and health.
5. Exercise regularly. Do rigorous but safe exercise. Your brain cells literally respond to exercise.
6.Get quality sleep.Sleep Sleep Sleep.
7. Manage Stress. If you have a lot of stress in your life, manage it. See someone. Don’t go years and years with built up and unmanaged stress.
8. Have a reason to live. Have a purpose. A task or goal or purpose that literally is your reason for getting up in the morning.

Get Over it and Move On.


I was disgusted with myself today. I had a horrible eating moment. Nonstop bingeing is never good. But it’s done, Angela. Get over it and move on. Wallowing in failure or weakness is a total waste of time. That not only applies to dieting, but it also applies to your career, your aspirations, and your dreams. Self-pity is not a road to success. You can’t go back into the past. Stop crying over spilled milk. Get up and live. Fight for a better future. So Here I go. I’m on my way out for a run. The future is bright.
