So I’m taking the 40 Days of Fitness challenge and have been doing some form of fitness activity each day. Yesterday was busy and it was 1:00 am (which was actually today, but details!) before I got to my fitness activity. So I did about 10 minutes of static squats against the wall. It burned so that is a good sign. I intended to do Dr. Oz’s 7-Minute Workout yesterday, but didn’t get to it until today. I must say I was a bit skeptical, even after I watched the video. But tonight I did the exercises (at 7:30 pm, not 1:00 am!) and it is a good workout. Heavy breathing, heart rate up, muscles fatigued (ok, maybe I’m just out of shape). But I like the workout (it is yoga-based) and I can’t really ever say I didn’t have time to do a 7-Minute Workout, so I think I will add it to my basket of fitness tips to keep. Try it out too!

At Tony Robbins’ Change Your Life Now Blog, there’s a twenty minute video of Nobel prize winner Daniel Kahneman discussing happiness. It is well worth the time to listen. Mr. Kahneman discusses the two distinct parts of ourselves that determine whether we are happy or not. He posits that happiness can be discussed by asking if you are happy in your life or happy with your life when you think about it. In other words, you have two selves: the experiencing self that lives in the present and the remembering self that reflects on your experiences. And they don’t always agree. For example, if you have a great experience, your experiencing self will be happy during the experience, but if the last few moments of that experience are painful in some way, your remembering self will remember that pain and not be happy with the experience. And vice versa. It is a fascinating and thought-provoking discussion.
