Several months ago, I posted about the "one-coin problem." This is my phrase to describe what's also known as "the argument of the growing heap":
"If ten coins are not enough to make a man rich, what if you add one coin? What if you add another? Finally, you will have to say that no one can be rich unless one coin can make him so."
Once I started looking for it, I began to notice the one-coin problem popping up in all sorts of places-in my own head, and in what other people say to me.
"It doesn't matter if I skip the gym today. What difference will it make to miss one work-out?"
"Who cares if my daughter doesn't go to bed right on time. A little less sleep isn't going to make a huge difference."
"I'm going to have dessert. One piece of cake isn't going to kill me."
"Tonight, I'm going to watch TV instead of read a book. I would only beRead More »from Do You Make Excuses for Yourself Based on the “One-Coin Argument”? I Do

You're happy with the direction your career is going, and that's great! You're in good shape, excellent health, and have a wonderful circle of friends: awesome! Do you still find yourself wondering why you haven't caught the train that will bring true love into your life?
Chances are you're among those strong, successful women who are being tripped up by a few limiting beliefs that are keeping them single. We suspect, then, that you might be one of of us in the Dating with Dignity community who's guilty of "doing your life" and then waiting - or even hoping - for someone to waltz into your life. Have you ever thought to yourself, "Love will just happen" or "This will work itself out"? Or, "If I just keep putting myself out there, then Mr. Right will bump into me at Starbucks"?
As much as that is a nice thought, you're probably going to be rudely awakened when you wait, and wait, and wait, AND wait. After all, if 2013 was going to be your year and NOTHING has changed sinceRead More »from 3 Reasons Why You're Still Single - Reason #1: You Believe Love Will Just Happen
Shampoo, rinse, repeat -- and fade. It never fails; your glorious, color-treated hair goes from shiny to dull after a few weeks. If you're not careful, you'll be back in your hair stylist's chair before your regular appointment, ready to plunk down a chunk of change for a redo. With a few tweaks to your haircare regimen, you can prolong that gorgeous hair color, keeping it looking vibrant and shiny longer, without frequent visits to the beauty shop.
Limit your washes, ladies. Who doesn't like drowning the day away under a warm shower for at least 10 minutes? Getting your hair wet frequently, like daily hair washings or swimming in the pool, can suck the life right out of your hair. If you want to keep color vibrant you'll have to limit the water. Try washing your hair every other day and wearing a swim cap for the pool.
Protect your hair from sun. I'm a true believer in slathering on the sunscreen. Those ugly age spots seem to run in my family and I'm determined to avoidRead More »from Keep Your Hair Color Vibrant

Water both scares and excites me. Unlike my husband who can't stay away from the stuff, I have a healthy respect for it due to a. being a not-so-strong swimmer and b. two almost drowning incidents on the sea shore. I grew up on the water, some of my earliest memories are of the smell of boat, of the sound of water lapping against the hull as I drift off to sleep, of the sounds of halyards tinking against masts and seagulls squawking as the wind picks up. Of sea spray, and of the terror that overwhelms me when land disappears from sight. Even now, when the depth radar goes to 'too bloody deep' and there's no land, I start thinking about being swallowed. Of things like the Marianas Trench with its crushing darkness. Of what exactly is and could be down there, and of the crushing fluidity of it all. Out on the sea, one is truly and absolutely subject to the elements. Water

When you meet up with someone new, it's only natural to check them out. For you, that means from head to toe and then some. If they think that's a bit too frank, then they've already failed the test.

If your good times aren't extreme, then they're, well, not good times at all, in your book. But there's another way of having fun that has nothing to do with acting like a frantic puppy. You'll stumble across it today.
Feeling lethargic? You can do a simple yoga routine for a quick energy boost. Certain styles of yoga can be especially effective for increasing circulation throughout the body, improving oxygen flow, and waking up the brain.
Doing a series of yoga poses to jumpstart your day -- or just to reboot in the middle of a stressful day -- can be a great way to maintain your healthy lifestyle. Relax with a cup of Lipton Hot Black Tea after your practice for additional warmth.
Here are eight energy-boosting yoga poses to try:
This move opens up your chest so that you can breathe in more oxygen. It can also stimulate the adrenal glands which will help you get going in no time. To perform this pose, kneel on the floor with your knees hip width apart and perpendicular to the floor. You'll be bending backwards slowly as you stretch your arms and head back to touch the soles of your feet.
