I look at my phone too much. Period. Can’t put it down, even while I am also watching TV. It’s ridiculous. Yoga helps me make up for the horrible habit. Even if you are not a yogi this is a simple stretch called the fish pose (modified) from my friends at Yoga Journal (follow them on Instagram). If you are a yogi and have blocks you can use those, if not use a foam roller or bolster (or a rolled up yoga mat). Arms out to your sides or folded up above your head, legs bent our straight. Try it out!
Read this Chicago Tribune article on how to save when you pick up prescriptions at any pharmacy. Ask your pharmacist, “Is there a lower cost or generic I can purchase for less than my copay?”
So it’s been a long and sometimes frustrating week of ups and downs for many of us. I think we need to get back to our basic humanity. I am challenging all of you to walk the talk this weekend, just two short days. High five a kid in the grocery store, buy the next person in line coffee, hold the door for someone and SMILE at your fellow humans. Just be kind… To EVERYBODY… For no other reason than that Kindness is SO Gangster.
