In A Rut

In case you haven't noticed, I have been in a bit of a rut lately. While friends occasionally send advice, most of it, as is often the case when one is feeling blue, simply rolls of my back and is ignored; this latest email made sense. I cannot be held responsible for how many of the items I will actually realize, but it made me smile and feel warm to know that someone out there is actually trying to live the life they preach.

Thank you Anthony.


Don't have a Facebook account.
Run or walk without listening to music. But listening.
Make a dinner from scratch, or whole "real" foods.
Have a meaningful conversation with a person you love.
Think about how great your day was and how lucky you are to be alive.
Do butterfly abs or three sets of plank.
Drink tea.
Think about pickling.
Listen to a Podcast from TAL, Fresh Air or Planet Money.
Sleep with purpose.
Wake up.

Anything you would like to add?


  1. Smiling and laughing are also powerful and important.

  2. putting one foot in front of the other even when you don't feel like it. that's what i have been doing of late :) i have also been trying to remind myself how fortunate i am to live the life i have and that i need to start to stop worrying about the future. it wears me out. i have to say though- my facebook buddies have helped to pull me through- so i may have to disagree a bit :) many are former blog buddies who have stopped blogging daily and i think we all really missed the daily contact. as for blogging, i don't do it much anymore. i have found that i have nothing to say these days...
