5 Things We Should All Do More Often

January 15, 2012

1.  Step away from the blog world.

I love the healthy living blog community, I really do, but sometimes it’s really easy to get caught up in the online world and lose sight of what’s realistic and what’s not.  The healthy living blog world sometimes warps my perception on things.

It’s fine to drink real milk and drink an occasional soda.


2. Laugh.

Need me to help you on that one?


3. Show your loved ones how much you care about them.


We celebrated my dad’s birthday this weekend.  I love that slightly crazy man.

4. Tell someone how amazing they are.

You two hot dog eating girls are perfect.

I mean it.


5. Let yourself be happy.

No matter what it takes.

To me, that means dancing to “Crazy in Love” like you are Beyonce, having a lazy morning instead of rushing around at the grocery store, skipping that race and just enjoying a run with your sweetie and eating tasty things.




Happy Sunday!

    I took a break from the blog world this weekend and it was kind of nice! And I definitely indulged in some “not so healthy” foods 🙂 I’m not complaining!

    i like this post and completely agree with #1. when i start to be surprised that the average person has no idea what a chia seed is then it is time to step away and gain some perspective. and maybe have a cheeseburger.

    So true how your perception can get skewed if you don’t allow yourself a break from the blog world every once in a while. Since I’ve been “unplugging” more during the weekend, I honestly feel like my days go by slower and I feel more relaxed. Sometimes you just have to take a break and live life!

    And I totally agree with Sara about the chia seeds! Haha!
