5 Ways to Say No

Last week I was running around like a chicken with my head cut off, trying to get more done than was probably possible. A friend of mine asked if I would like to go for a hike, and my initial reaction was to say yes. I didn’t want to make her feel bad, after all. Plus I was always talking about how I loved to wander in the forest. Wouldn’t she think I was a big jerk if I said

3 Reasons to Carry a Water Bottle (that aren’t money or the environment)

Some of the first people I met in Germany commented that all the Americans they knew carried water bottles. They wondered what the big deal was. Now I’m certainly all about sustainability and saving cash, but this wasn’t what this guy wanted to hear. Germans after all, are world leaders in both. So why would you carry a water bottle, adding extra weight and talking up space you could be using for other things? I’ll give you three good reasons.

The trouble with that was when the sinks needed scrubbing, I was usually stuck working late

5 Steps to Spending Time on Yourself

Spending time doing exactly what you want is seen as something of a luxury these days. But if you want to excel at stress management (which I think should be taught in college), time for yourself is nothing short of a necessity. The world we live in is constantly demanding our attention and time. As a natural resource, time is one of the few that money can’t buy. We all have the same amount. How we spend it determines how

4 Steps to Creating A Good Habit

I belong to a 30-Day Challenge group, and something we’ve noticed is that it is far easier to take something out of lives than it is to add it. Many of us have been successful eliminating caffeine, refusing to eat out or stopping drinking alcohol. However, there have many challenges left unmet, like walking 20 minutes every day, trying to eat something fresh in every meal or even knitting for 15 minutes a day (that was mine). Creating a good
