And definitely Wiggle while you Welcome People to your home.
Don’t forget the traditional After Dinner Family Waddle. Bundle everyone up and drag them outside. Once or twice around the block should do it. Wigglewhile you Waddle! Help your body digest. Get your blood flowing. Move that lymph. When you get back inside, have a glass of water before you do anything else. Toast to everyone’s good health in the coming year. That will be a lot of positive energy in one place.
Inclement weather? No problem! Set up the Traditional Obstacle Course around your home and have everyone go through it.
Time them! Compete as individuals, as families, as age groups, as cross-generational teams. Don’t forget to use your laugh muscles. Winners get dibs on dessert.
What? These are not part of your traditions?
No problem. It’s never too late to set up a tradition in the Wiggle Realm.
Not a observer of holidays? No problem. I repeat, it’s never too late to set up a tradition in the Wiggle Realm. Wiggle your way to better health.
To avoid Over-Use Injuries such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Tennis Elbow, switch it up. I just moved my mouse and mouse pad to the other side of the computer. This feels as awkward as trying to copy words from a mirror image using your non-dominant hand. It slows me down, but in the 3 days since I’ve started, I see improvement already.
I still habitually wave my other hand over the former mouse location. To a casual observer, it looks like I’m casting a spell on the only empty spot on my desk. I can’t quite bring myself to put anything there. Someday I will switch back, but probably not until Spring. Learning new skills grows new brain cells.
Speaking of Spring…
The Days Are Getting Longer!
Ever since December 21, 2014. Can you feel the light returning? I sure can. (It’s the Science Geek in me.)
Just thinking about it makes me want to Wiggle! C’mon, Wiggle With Me!
I met a remarkable woman last month. Priscilla Wainwright was smart and sassy…and fighting an illness. She was on a mission to help women reclaim the inner feminine strength with which they were born, their Inner Tigress. You can learn more about The Inner Tigress by Priscilla Wainwright by visiting her website http://www.innertigress.com I’m sharing a…
On her ninth birthday, she announced, “Now that I’m almost a teenager—”
“Hold it!” I had to stop her right there. “You are not almost a teenager. I will tell you when you are almost a teenager.”
How would you like to have your own team of mentors committed to your parenting success? What would you do with a network of awesome moms at your fingertips? It’s that time of year when I open up the virtual Mom Mastermind Groups. For those you new to the model, a traditional mastermind group is designed…
I don’t know about your Nor’easter, but my Nor’easter dumps a lot of snow! But it’s so lovely. When I go out in the middle of it to feed the birds (those little flying mosquito-eaters), I shovel a bit.
“What?” you exclaim. “You shovel in the middle of the storm?”
Of course I do. Now, in the middle of the storm. Why should I? Let me count the ways.
I’m proud to say I’ve made it this far in my life without ever having cooked a turkey. That’s no simple feat for an American Awesome Mom. However, I did serve up a Thanksgiving spread at my mother’s house so wonderful, it could’ve made the angels sing (objectively speaking, of course). Keeping with tradition, we…
