I saw children dressed in pressed school uniforms, carrying new backpacks, and wearing trendy shoes, on the commuter train yesterday, and immediately looked at the calendar app on my i-Phone. I can’t believe – back to school season – is upon us. Which is a wonderful and crazy thing – compounding to the already chaotic city life with kids blending throughout, starting school.
And so I remained on my phone throughout the ride, in an effort to tune out the yell-talking across the train, the kicking and shoving, horsing around, and all things that remind us that being youthful is simply a part of life.
Here’s what I tagged to share today:
There is a list of five books that is said to change your life – if you are looking for ways to improve or realign yourself.
- Thirteen Things 1. Thirteen Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do by Amy Morin
- How To Stop Worrying and Start Living by Dale Carnegie
- How Will You Measure Your Life by Clayton M. Christensen, James Allworth, and Karen Dillon
- Finding Your Element by Ken Robinson
- Emotional Intelligence by Daniel Coleman
- Dry brushing was something my mother did when we were young. A cultural norm, which I hated when I was a child – but apparently it is now a trend – where most Spas offer. Which I tried a few weeks ago and I must say, I never felt better and it is something I do recommend – as an adult, not so much as a child under the age 12.
