From my last article Meditation + Me, you have hopefully begun to accept that meditation can be powerful and may be worth giving a try. Here, I want to explore some simple methods of meditation. No need to be intimidated. Just secure yourself some privacy and quiet and practice!
Multitasking. A constant push to Do More, Do Better, Do Faster. In Part 1, I hit on a few things… Our rigorous society, juggling to deal with busyness and the problems with “multitasking” – most notably losing incredible amounts of mental time each day switching between tasks and the stratification of our attention that leads to likely inferior results. Here goes Part 2 with some of my own insights.
Multitasking is common. All day, every day. We listen to podcasts while riding the train or driving. We do dishes while also cooking in the kitchen. We use the toilet while brushing our teeth. We plan coffee and lunch meetings for business. I literally see 3 people in front of me right now at Starbucks each using a phone and a laptop at the same time.
June marks Whole Fit’s one year anniversary on Instagram. 🙂 It marks a lot for Whole Fit really – the one year anniversary for all social media presence with Facebook and LinkedIn, as well as when I first publicly announced the relaunch of my company Whole Fit: Wellness Coaching and Communications. Yeah, putting things on social media means they’re for real.
Wow, a year has passed. Well, technically Whole Fit has existed since February 2016. There were breaks in the chronology for full-time jobs and experience-soaking-up. I would not call it fully formed until the relaunch in May 2019, when service offerings were solidified and felt right, when passion and time aligned to actually make things happen.
The absolute best Caesar salad I ever had was in an Italian restaurant at a resort in Acapulco, Mexico. (Huh?!) My brother is my witness. And just because we were starving and eating a 10:00 PM dinner, does not mean we were slippin’ in judgement. Anyone would have been wowed by the table-side, ingredient-by-ingredient preparation that forever raised the bar on a classic.
I recently took a trip to New York City that brought a lot of notions about “travel” to the forefront. The expense, the absence, the stress… Is it worth it? I suppose, from my previous situation of more means, I had never thought of it in such a make-or-break way.
I wanted to make healthy treats to deliver to some of my favorite brand contacts in town, so I found this awesome Five-Ingredient Protein Bars recipe from Chew Out Loud. Amy from COL says… “These 5-ingredient Protein Bars are super easy, packed with good nutrition, and perfect for breakfast or snack on the run. Plus, they are a no-bake recipe! This one’s a keeper.”
