I am not a big fan of high heels. Growing up with very conservative parents, they were simply “not allowed”. I got my first pair of heels for my high school prom, but even then they were not that high at all, more like Mary-Janes with a bump at the back. Then, before my last year of high school was over, I had an injury and had to have reconstructive surgery on my left foot. I never wore heels again until I was in my twenties.
Many people, myself included, are trying very hard to live a healthy lifestyle. Often, that means a diet rich in fish based protein. Unfortunately, by eating certain types of fish, we may very well be sabotaging our efforts. Apparently, not all fish are created equal where healthy protein is concerned.
I live about an hour’s drive from the beach. I find that’s a pretty sweet locale. It has been a great place to raise my kids. When they were younger we spent many weekends driving back and forth to the beach, hanging out all day, picnicking. My husband and I anticipate that when the last one is finished with college and, finally, our money is our own, we can upgrade and actually live on the beach. I look forward to a tiny condo with a gorgeous ocean view. That is, until I read about these places that were rated as the greatest places to live according to a Mercer Quality of Life survey:
I seem to sit a lot, despite my efforts to live an active lifestyle. I sit for the scattered six hours throughout my day that I spend writing. I also sit for a few scattered hours in the evening when I handsew, which is my favorite hobby for relaxation. All of this sitting can cause problems with my sacroiliac joints, a little known problem that often gets misdiagnosed and mistreated.
Now, I am no clean freak, but I do like things “tidy”. I de-clutter on a regular basis. If you have minimalist tendencies, you may appreciate the tips that are about to follow. Some of them you may even be putting into use. Either way, you will also appreciate having your tendencies supported by a like-minded fellow.
