Optimize Your Life!

This blog was formerly Fighting, and Beating, Multiple Sclerosis, but as I fought on against MS I realized the real fight is multidimensional. It encompasses a multitude of factors affecting the optimization of life in general - not just for those with MS.

I hope to provide inspiration & information so you can Optimize Your Life - no matter what battle you face!
Seems like yesterday we were reading these two Dr Seuss stories, and today we bring our son to college 3.5 hours away in Vermont & Tuesday our daughter flies to Ireland for a semester abroad.

What more can we say than “Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So get on your way! Don’t worry about us. We’ll be fine - once you both return one day!” Haha!

They say that sitting for long periods shortens your life expectancy. I figured, since I have to go to work,  I’d do something to swing the odds a little in my favor. 

Even though there is a gym in my building, this removable chin-up bar allows for quick exercise during the day - and you don’t even have to get changed! Haha.

Here’s to extending that life expectancy - cheers!

# I know you are digging that retro wood paneling! Haha

45 LIFE LESSONS, WRITTEN BY A 90 YEAR OLD

45 LIFE LESSONS, WRITTEN BY A 90 YEAR OLD

 Old Eye

1. Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. Life is too short not to enjoy it.

4. Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and family will.

5. Don’t buy stuff you don’t need.

6. You don’t have to win every argument. Stay true to yourself.

7. Cry with someone. It’s more healing than crying alone.

8. It’s OK to get angry…

They say that excessive sitting will shorten your lifespan.  I decided today I was going to test out a removable chin-up bar at my workplace. 

It fit some of the door frames (but not my office door) and I did a few sets interspersed during the few hours I was there.  The real test is whether I’ll use it during the week while wearing a shirt & tie and while others are around! 

Maybe I’ll get a chin-up club going! Haha. Hey, we’ll all live longer!
