Taking Care of Yourself


Am I getting any exercise? Well, I am working on it. At the end of February, my doctor suggested water aerobics.  Fast forward three weeks, and it looks like that is out. 

Not getting to swim is OK though, I am replacing the comfortable chair in the TV room with my recumbent bike exerciser.  I like to watch TV, and now, If I want to watch it, I have to sit on the exerciser.  I can’t do that without wanting to push the pedals.  Exercising to TV is an easy win for an aerobic workout.

The other activity I need to do is to call people I have worked with and talk to them.  It will give me more human connectivity and information on how others are handling protective measures for the virus.  Talking to others will be helpful. 

I would like to ask a favor.  If you are reading this, and you have the time, please send a response and tell me how you are doing and what the pandemic looks like where you live.  I believe that through sharing, we strengthen our resolve, and lighten the burdens of negatives in our lives.  I like to talk with people, getting started with that is sometimes a little hard for me.

If I could give a thought, I believe in the importance of finding positives, even in our darkest hours.  The act robs negatives of their hardest biting powers.  And, if you can laugh daily, you know you will be all right in the long run.  Laughing tells you things will be OK.

Thank you for being with me today.  I hope to be with you again soon.

He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future.
