LOVING  bkr water bottles
  //   I’ve been using this little beauty for a few weeks now and have fallen deeper and deeper in love. Yes. I am in love with a water bottle. I could write a few paragraphs on just the mouthpiece alone (Hello! No spilling while drinking and driving – water only, people!), but I’ll spare you and give you the good advice to get yourself one of these pretty, hydrating things. Browse away!

EATING  chia seeds  //  Who knew the source of a chia pet could be so beneficial?! I know they’re all the rage, so I guess that makes me a follower but a follower who can run fast because these things give you the kick of energy needed for any ‘ol day! If you have a full schedule or need some replenishment, grab a little pinch of these babies! I’ve been adding a small tablespoon to my morning black tea and it seems to get the job done. So much more information on these miracle seeds here.

READING  the happiness advantage  //  I love blogs. Not so much books. I guess that’s a lie, because I LOVE to buy books, but have a hard time sitting down to read them unless I’m on an airplane (bookstore in airports = genius). Thanks to my recent trip to Palo Alto, I was on an airplane so naturally dug into one of the many books I’ve purchased over the past few months titled, The Happiness Advantage. I first heard about this book back in January when I visited New Orleans for Serious Business. Shawn Achor, author, was the opening speaker and immediately had my interest – happy people are more successful?! WHAT?!!?! I loved the idea behind his research and the fact that it’s scientifically based! I’m about halfway through the book and if nothing else have discovered a few beneficial practices to increase my optimism and gratitude. Don’t believe me? Check it out for yourself.

PLANNING  boot camp //  Holy sore muscles, guys! On a whim (and with a bit of coaxing from a corepower buddy) I decided it would be a good idea to sign up for Corepower’s Boot Camp. WHAT HAVE I DONE?! I mean this is a pretty big stretch for me, seeing as how I find multiple excuses per week to skip my workouts. With that said, I know I need a literal and figurative kick in the booty to prep myself to feel happy about wearing a bikini on a San Diegan beach come end of April, so here goes nothing!
