Good morning, friends. Can you believe it’s the first weekend in August? It seems like just yesterday that Dave and I returned from our last big Florida trip visiting friends and family over the holidays.
Since that time, I’ve started a new job, changed up my teaching schedule, gone on a few fun trips, (especially that fabulous one to Cabo), hosted all sorts of visitors in our little apartment and revamped A Lady Goes West.
Throughout the year, I’ve continued to learn, write and grow. I thought it might be good to pull out a few posts from the past, which each address different aspects of living a healthy life and answer a few questions. Even though I’m constantly trying new things, there are a few staples of feeling good that we should all strive for, like hydrating, sleeping, and of course, moving. And that’s what these posts are all about, with a little random thrown in for good measure.
For your reading pleasure, here’s the official healthy-living round-up:
- The secret to drinking more water
- Sleep is an important part of a healthy life
- Is it better to work out in bare feet?
- How to learn something new every day
- A life of walking and how to get moving (I wrote this one before I got an UP band)
- Is it bad to chew too much gum?
- Working out in the early morning
To close it out, here’s one of my favorite pictures, which I took a couple of months ago from the rooftop of my building. You can’t beat a view of San Francisco and a hearty green smoothie in a University of Florida tervis.
With that, I’ll leave you to go off and enjoy your weekend!
