A Mantra for Focus

mantra for focus

Who could use a bit more focus in their life besides me? 

I find myself constantly flitting from one need to another, especially when it comes to cleaning my house. In fact, since becoming a mom 5 years ago, I swear my brain has been reprogrammed to the point where focus is nearly a distant memory. Yikes right? 

With this realization, I've committed myself to mindfulness recently. Clearly something needs to change! 

Here is a great mantra I've found to help.

Stop Sitting All Day

Sitting down all day sucks. 

My neck and shoulders could tell you all about it, but I'll leave it to The Science to really tell the story.

Sitting is the New Smoking

By now, I'm sure you've heard that "Sitting is the new smoking." Yikes. It's pretty terrifying when you start to tally up all of the time spent sitting throughout your day. But then there's standing... who hasn't come home from a long day on their feet with sore legs?

What's the alternative? 

Focal Upright promotes a 3rd option - leaning. Leaning positions your body in a neutral position between standing and sitting that allows you to add more movement into your day. 

Focal Upright's Mogo Seat

Focal Upright is giving away one of their signature portable leaning seats. If you're new to the concept of leaning, this seat is a great way to ease into it! The Mogo Seat conveniently folds up and fits in a backpack so you can take it from the office to the soccer field. 

Easy entry for your chance to win a Mogo Seat!

How would you use your new Mogo Seat?

I Hate Grocery Shopping

What's your least favorite errand? Is it grocery shopping? It's probably grocery shopping. 

I HATE GROCERY SHOPPING! I want to get in and out of there as fast as possible.

Grocery Shopping Nightmares with Kids
Uh yes, these are my kids and this was a real grocery shopping trip. Don't try this at home folks.

Enter Pampered Chef's Everyday Tote. Now hear the angels singing. Especially if you live near a grocery store with the magic checkout wand that you can bibbidi boppity boo your way through the aisles.

How Does It Work?

Each bag has two clips on the sides that affix to your shopping cart as seen in the bottom right image.

Different Uses for Everyday Tote

So now, imagine that you've scanned all of your items and have placed them in your Everyday Tote. Simply checkout with your scanner, grab your receipt and lift these bags out of your cart. They hold an incredible amount of groceries for the record. Like 40 lbs worth. Each. I know. Seriously.

Pampered Chef Everyday Tote
Grab and go!
 Because these bags can hold an incredible amount of stuff and roll up to almost nothing, I use these for everything!

Are you sold yet? As a departing visualization, let me leave you with this. You love your reusable bags. I'm sure of it. But what if those bags had clips so they didn't keep falling over in your grocery cart AND could each hold 40 lbs with a sturdy and comfortable shoulder strap?

A darling new Target Collection

Cloud Island Baby Nursery

Target's new Cloud Island Collection is here and it is adorable! Are you looking to outfit a nursery or fulfill the best Baby Shower gift this summer? Personally, I have a brand new nephew on the way and he will be the first boy in the family in a LONG time.

Luckily for my nephew, he gets to shop for new nursery duds - because everything I own is pink. pink. pink.

What I really love about this Collection is the modern aesthetic. The products look like something you would find at Land of Nod, but not spend an arm and a leg for!
