Rest as an act of piety

Okay, so for those of you who are Judeo-Christian, perhaps this is no big deal for you; however, recently I have been healing from a neck/back injury that I sustained while working out several days ago. Almost “randomly” (I use aggressive quotes here, because I don’t believe anything is truly random – everything is a result of an interconnected cause/effect), I also got a message saying the following: “To...

August, 2010 break

After I did the three videos last week in Ft. Lauderdale I went up to Minneapolis for the weekend to visit Jen.

Give it a rest, would ya?!

So, I have often said that taking breaks is important, but if you have ever looked at my itinerary you will know that I don’t do this often enough. Burn out! OMG! One reason I blog is to hold myself accountable: If I put it out publically, I feel more obliged to stand up to my ideals. LOL I am going to commit to taking a weekend off each month. It will either be the first or last weekend of each month. I have already published...
