Mid-Week Balance: 15 August 2012

I don’t know about you, but here in Missouri, this is back-to-school week.  I’m reeling a bit from the disappearance of summer, but I have learned not to get too wound up about things I can’t control.  Because of that, I’m including a few posts that feature parenting suggestions, as well a grab-bag section with a focus on inspiring yourself to build healthy habits.  I hope that something you read this week supports a need for you!

Healthy Parenting

This post honestly got tapped because it made me laugh out loud.  I also appreciated the tools that the writer uses to help involve her kids in healthy limit setting.  Here’s your inspiration for the game of parenting chess.

I am still a novice in the world of technology and health applications, so I appreciated this post from Dr. Sara Gottfried suggesting five helpful apps for busy parents.

Healthy Grab-Bag

Leigh Pretnar Cousins, MS shares her own story of reconnecting with a healthy habit, and a simple basic suggestion for how you can implement one healthy change at a time.

Leo Babauta is consistently helpful at providing solid suggestions for being active.  I appreciated this post about different ways to get inspired.

This post from Jeannine Watson is written to cancer patients, but I found her suggestions for commitments to self to be appropriate for facing many different illnesses (and also just for living a healthy life).

And finally, from Pam Slim, is one last Olympic post.  (And yes, I am getting help for my Olympic habit.)  I appreciated her reflection on how important it is to remain focused on our own goals, to run our own race.

That’s what I’ve got for you this week.  As always, please feel free to share your own favorite resources of the week in the comments.
