Taking Work Breaks with GaiamTV

My husband and dog think I'm looney.

I've made a conscious effort the past couple of weeks to get more activity in during the day. I'm at my computer for hours on end, so to help get some movement, I've transitioned part-time to a standing desk situation. My "standing desk" is actually a counter on a wet bar, but it's the perfect height and there's ample light and an outlet for my laptop cord.

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I know there are some groans going on tonight as some of us prepare to go back to work for the first time in several days with the Thanksgiving holiday. I celebrated Thanksgiving last Saturday, so I spent Thanksgiving putting up Christmas decorations. Speaking of, here's a random photo of my Christmas tree. It's a glitter explosion and it's a little unreal how happy it makes me to just sit in front of it Continue Reading
