rule your technology, don't let it make you procrastinate
It is terrific to know you can stop procrastination by refusing to be ruled by your technology.  Procrastination is the thing that keeps you from doing what you need to do or gives you an excuse for not doing what you should be doing. One common thing that causes procrastination is technology. Of course technology is all around us and is something we cannot, indeed should not avoid. At the same time, technology is a major source of procrastination.

The following are a few of the common procrastination problems associated with technology:
1.  Technology causes one to get sucked into social media
2.  Technology with dead battery on things like phone, tablet or laptop
3.  Technology dies with no cloud backup
4.  Technology is used improperly
5.   Technology scares the user
Each of these things will cause a person to procrastinate rather than doing what should be done. More »

It is fantastic to have a healthy competition with your husband and Nestlé Pure Life water can help! I am glad I am a part of #CollectiveBias #Ad so I had an opportunity that pushed me to get on the water bandwagon. My husband and I have engaged in a little competition to get healthy. On March 31, 2015 we will celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We both need to get in shape so we have a competition to see who gets in the best shape and lose the biggest percentage of body weight by our wedding anniversary. We are still working out the prizes, but the best prize is bragging rights. We are a couple that loves to talk trash, so bragging rights is a big draw.

I don’t know all of my husband’s get in shape tips and tricks and I am not going to spill all mine here, but both of us have turned to water like  you would not believe. I was a big soft drink drinker and have turned to water to quench my thirst, help me get in shape and stay hydrated. A little over a year ago I was hospitalized for dehydration so I have a new and great appreciation for water. Anyway, my husband and I are drinking water like crazy in our attempt to win the competition we are having. This week, I went to our local market to pick up some Nestlé Pure Life water. It is important to drink lots of water because #HealthyHydration is an important part of getting in shape and having a healthy lifestyle. I want a healthy life, not just a get slim quick diet plan!

Once inside the market, I went to the beverage aisle. Of course I saw all the sodas, juices and other things that I used to drink before I decided to challenge my husband to get in shape. I am proud to say that I ignore all those things and looked only at the water section of the shelves. I was looking for the Nestlé Pure Life  water and I found it.  The aisle had the one and two gallon containers which are nice for normal people who want to quench their thirst.

However, I am not normal people, I am a woman on a mission to kick her husband’s butt, so I kept looking.   More »

motivate yourself to beat procrastination
It is terrific to know that you can motivate yourself to stop procrastination. Everyone knows what procrastination means. After all, almost every school child has been taught not to put off until tomorrow things that can be done today. In addition, almost everyone has procrastinated at least once in life. For some people, procrastination is debilitating and people who suffer from it feel overwhelmed and almost hopeless. Those people should stand strong and be encouraged. Almost every person can win the battle against procrastination. The reason almost every person can win the battle against procrastination is because a great weapon is to motivate one’s self. Sometimes, there is no one around to pat you on the back when you have done a great job. At those times you must pat yourself on the back. Similarly, sometimes when you have been procrastinating and no one has been able to help you stop, you must motivate yourself. Friends and family members get busy. Self help books get lost. Smart phones get lost or have batteries that die. The one thing you can guarantee you will always have with you and will always be available is your own self.

learn new ways to balance work and life



It is fantastic to know there is always something new to learn to in the work life balance battle. There are always books, articles, documentaries and news reports on the struggle to balance work and life. These stories always amaze me because they are usually so drastically dismal or ridiculously optimistic. The reality is that it is hard to balance work and life, but it can be done. Like most things worth having, finding a balance between work and life is hard but well worth the effort. Most people work because they have to work in order to provide a living for themselves and their families. At the same time people want to live lives that are fulfilling, satisfying and enjoyable.
