7 Tips for a Good Night’s Sleep

16 Apr

Ahhh

Ahhh

 

Obviously, we all want a good night’s sleep...

7 TIPS – WHAT NOT TO DO

1 – Don’t read the New York Post crime blotter as your bedtime reading. The grotesque stories will sneak into your sexy sweet fairy dreams and turn them into a night terror, perhaps a myocardial infarction.

2 – Don’t drink a double espresso, a Red Bull, or more wine than your body weight divided by 2.5.

3 – Don’t sleep with your cell phone unless you are planning to marry it. Make sure it doesn’t want children. […]

I have seen what a laugh can do. It can transform almost unbearable tears into something bearable, even hopeful. — Bob Hope

Before you look down your nose on a clown nose…

It’s important to realize that therapeutic humor is a valuable tool to help others.

Think of those who battle cancer and chronic illness, nurse patients with spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injury, comfort the dying, care for a parent with Alzheimer’s, cope with the death of a son in a car accident, deal with the legacy of alcoholic parents, struggle with the aftermath of rape, miscarriages, teenage suicide.  ARRGH!   Unfortunately, “Pain and Suffering” is a reality show playing in all of our neighborhoods.

Hard to believe, but I’m told some people stress out over a lost earring (not me!) or a missed plane (never!) or (God forbid!) a lousy internet connection. (Can you hear me? Is this working?)

YOU too can experience the transformative power of humor.

I support AATH – YOU can, too!

How To Be Really Miserable

21 Mar

 

Woe is me.

As relationship expert and best-selling author Margaret Paul, PhD. writes at HuffPost Healthy Living, “While life is often challenging, lonely and heartbreaking, misery is a choice.”

HERE ARE MY 7 TIPS  – HOW TO BE REALLY  MISERABLE

  • Wear Spanx underwear daily, preferably in a size too small.  (Guess what? It’s ALL a size too small.)
  • Read, listen to, or watch The News. This applies especially to anything remotely political.  (Ugh. It’s ALL political.)
  • Deprive yourself of chocolate before noon.  (Cocoa Puffs were created for a reason.) […]

(I sincerely hope you haven’t slipped and cut your knee on a New Year’s Day “fitness” hike, come down with the flu, succumbed to a stubborn vocal cord infection and laryngitis, had a collision with a parking garage pole, received a swollen lip from the car door, broken an expensive glass vase in a gift store, and agreed to go to the movie Zero Dark Thirty on your wedding anniversary.)

If so (or worse!)… I feel your pain.

Speaking of pain, here are some Robitussin-induced musings: […]

The Law of HA

The BEST to everybody in the New Year!

Especially wishing you more LAUGHTER in your  life.

Are you getting enough?

Think of LAUGHTER as an orgasm for the imagination. A cerebral romp for the playful. A workout that will leave you lighthearted.

Want to attract more mirth on a daily basis?

I have a new article up in a Slide Share at BeliefNet you may find helpful. Enjoy!

7 Christmas Gifts I DON’T Want

What gifts don’t YOU want?

In the spirit of LESS materialism… Thank you, but please DON’T buy me the following:

*A sexy Santa gift… especially if I’ve been naughty. What’s with the “We wish you a slutty Xmas!” sentiment? Watch out – Frosty the Snowman is so hot and bothered, he may melt.

*An e-card with a slide share of cutesy farm animals singing Christmas carols. Stay out of my inbox! It’s messy enough in there. […]

The holidays can be a rough time for many.

Let’s remember that caregivers need a respite from burnout, too.

29 Nov

Rolex

 

It’s season 3 of Bravo’s RHOBH and don’t ya jest love it?

Like most truly cheesy TV, “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” is provocative, potent, and chock full of teaching moments.

We are now blessed with 7 RHOBHs: Lisa Vanderpump, Adrienne Maloof, Kyle Richards, Kim Richards, Taylor Armstrong, Brandi Glanville, and Yolanda Foster.

BTW their combined ages are over 320 years.

SO they certainly can teach us a thing or two… or 7. […]

Do The Thanksgiving Math

20 Nov

 

Home Is Where The Wine Heart Is

Thanksgiving = 2 Much Food 4 Most Every 1

From The New York Times by Tara Parker Pope:

“The commonly cited statistic is that the average American will consume more than 4,500 calories on Thanksgiving Day alone. That’s according to the Calorie Control Council,”

Calories Schmalories!  Who’s counting anyway?

SO GLAD I REFUSE TO BE AVERAGE!!!  4500 calories?  Sum 1 isn’t trying very hard!

* Happy Thanksgiving to all *
