Feeling old? Try a bite of summer

Recently my wife asked me “What’s wrong with you; take a look at your face!”  I barked back, “What are you talking about? I’m fine!” Then I looked in the mirror and got scared. How did this strange, angry, depressed guy get into my mirror? What the hell happened to the ‘happy go lucky, fun loving me’ I once knew? “I’ll tell you what happened…”, I growled to myself, “I’m feeling old”. Now, I understand that ‘feeling old’ is a relative thing; it depends on who your relatives are, genetically speaking.  But seriously, this is something different, a new level...

I call them ‘palm zombies.’ I resisted becoming a palm zombie for as long as I could. I was very happy with my cell phone because I found it very useful for MAKING PHONE CALLS!

Gut Buster Moments

We’ve all had them, those deep belly laughs, ‘gut buster’ moments. They feel so good- the best cure for stress and negativity. We need more of them! Imagine a world in which everyone laughs out loud and uncontrollably at least once a day. I’m talking; ‘please stop, no really please stop you’re killing me’, kind of belly aching laughter that seems to happen so rarely but is so good for us. Seriously, I’m talking about ‘I haven’t laughed this hard since the time Bob sneezed during the manager’s luncheon with a mouth full of...

Are you practicin’ relaxin’?

Modern life pushes to do more, think less, and react to whatever seems most urgent. Sure, we get a lot done, but on the whole, we’re not very happy while we very stressed out! Stress is  killing us, physically, emotionally and spiritually. The number of American workers who consider stress to be a major problem in their lives has more than doubled during the past ten years. 62% percent of American workers say their workload has increased over the last six months; 53% say work leaves them “overtired and overwhelmed. Moreover, the modern brain, over exposed to electronic stimuli,...
