Ok, so today speaks directly to those who smoke. Hop on over and visit Smokefree.gov to take the first step in quitting smoking. I don’t smoke, although I am sad to say that I did way back when. So, I am one of those hyper-sensitive, judgy ex-smokers. Sorry, I try not to be, but it just happens. I’ve been there and I totally understand how difficult it is to quit. But you can do it!
Check out this post on smoking and heart disease . The information may surprise you.
Since today doesn’t apply to me, I plan on just being extra nice to me today and also try something new. So tonight I’ll be giving a yoga video a shot. I could use some stress relief and lately I have increased my activitity level, so I think some stretching and de-stressing is just what I need.
What are you doing for you today?
