Did you know that you should be taking a break about every 10 minutes? When you're working at home this is actually doable. I do ergonomic stretches and exercises right at my desk. And being at home I don't have to worry about being embarrassed.
Visit Ergonomic About.com site for The Essential 2 Minute Stretch. Believe me these stretches can help you avoid work related injuries and give you a boast doing the day.
Our dietician has recommended that we eat fish at least 2-3 times a week. Now, as a gal from Maine thats not a challenge for me but my husband and son aren't seafood lovers. My solution was to find quick, flavorful meals that they would enjoy.
As you may know I'm on a mission to feeding my family low fat, delicious meals and snacks. Halloween can still be fun with healthy choices. Take a listen to Marie's show today, as she speaks with Suzanne Myers, Healthy Meal Mailer.
You can find Suzanne's website by clicking on the Healthy Meal Mailer icon, on the rightside of my blog. Also read Suzanne's article, Healthy Halloween Treats.
Don't forget that there are many people who have diet restrictions that need to be followed even during the holidays. Susanne Myers' article offers some alternate Halloween treats. This year, I'll be giving small craft projects along with inexpensive toys. (no candy)
Healthy Treats For Little Trick-Or-Treaters This Halloween By: Susanne Myers
Candy and other sweets don’t have to be the only treats you hand out to little trick-or-treaters this Halloween. There are also plenty of healthy options available that will be just as fun without causing a sugar rush and cavities. Here are some ideas for healthy treats you can use this year.
Dried fruit makes a great portable snack as well as a good Halloween treat. Grab a few bags of dried fruit, like apples, raisins, cherries, cranberries, dates, apricots and banana chips. Repack them in little bags. You can also get raisins and other dried fruit in small individual boxes that are ready to go.
Raven speaks with Heshie Segal, National Speaker and Trainer, about this week's message, 'How to Keep Going When the Chips are Done.' She bravely shares her abuse as a child, how it's effecting her now and how she has learned from her past. Also you'll hear her and Raven talk about pursuing your dreams and making them come true.
This is a strong, powerful message for all of us, regardless of what you're dealing with today. Remember that despite having a bad childhood but you can have a fantastic adult life!

Here's a fun list for you and spouse to share at Marriage About.com. Some of my hubby and I's favorite things to do is hold hands and watch funny movies together.
Do you know your spouse's favorite movie? My husband just loves 'Blazin Saddles' and mine is 'It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, World'. When I was recovering from my back injury he got me that movie. I laughed so hard that sometimes my spasms would start up. But I also appreciated my husband's loving gesture.
As my son has so eloquently put it all moms are working moms. But with so many moms and dads deciding to work from home they come across many benefits and challenges.
My benefit is being able to work while being in my own home. One of my challenges is to motivate myself. In brick and mortar call centers there ongoing contests and incentives to keep customer service reps on track with their stats. I must create my own.
