“Take a big step back with your left foot. Lower yourself until your right knee is bent 90 degrees, then push back up. That’s one rep. Do 8 to 12. Repeat on the other leg. That’s one set. Do two to three sets.”
There is nothing more important than health. Therefore, don’t start to think about it only when you get sick. Our health depends on many things: daily habits, food we eat, physical activity, environment.
When it comes to food opt for locally produced or home grown if you can. That way you know where your food is coming from and what’s in it. Remember that “food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.” Stay away from processed food, eat seasonal fruits and vegetables and don’t consume sugary drinks.

“Dolce far niente” – The sweetness of doing nothing.
I woke up this morning and my first thought was about the things I still have to do. Living in a house means there is always something to do. Work is never done. Not to mention, that for the past ten days we were painting the walls; literally from early morning till late evening. Although I was feeling exhausted, the thought of taking the time-out sounded almost blasphemous.
We live such a fast-paced lives, always driven by the need to do something, like it would be a sin if we slow down. I think that being busy doesn’t always mean you are being productive. Alan Cohen once said “There is virtue in work and there is virtue in rest.”
So today I’m letting go of the guilt that we so often have about “doing nothing” and simply enjoy the pleasure of “dolce far niente.” I realized a long time ago that work can wait. This fact was scientifically proved. 🙂
Sometimes you have to take a day off from everything and just be. One of the most easy ways to happiness is to do more of what makes you happy. So, my dear friends, put your best effort to do more of what makes your heart sing. Not just today; use every chance you get. Make your well-being a priority. Anything works if it clears your mind and relaxes your body. This may sound like a contradiction, but doing nothing now and then will ultimately make you a better worker.
Did you know that “In Italy, they add work and life on to food and wine?” 🙂
Happy and blessed Sunday to you all!
“The concept of dieting is simple: Stick to this food list, consume this many calories, and exercise this much. But executing this “simple” plan is much tougher because once you’re on a diet, everything that’s temporarily forbidden takes on a new luster, and what was previously just another snack in your cabinet has now become that one thing that you really, really want.”

Weight loss is sure not easy but worth the effort.
“Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.” ~ Robert Collier;
“Whatever you are working towards, and however far you still have to go, I encourage you to take the time to truly bask in everything you have achieved thus far.
It doesn’t matter if you are moving fast or slow, only that you keep moving! And the best way to ensure that you continue to do that is to cherish each step along the way.” – Joanna Z. Weston
When the going gets tough, ask yourself, “Where was I six months ago? A year ago? Remember that changes usually come slowly, so it can be hard to see them. That’s why always concentrate on how far you’ve come, rather than how far you still have to go.
