Not sure who, but a few very nice people nominated me for the 6th Annual WEGO Health Awards. I was nominated for both the Lifetime Achievement Award and The Best Kept Secret Award – Thank you! A great email to read when you first get up on the morning — even better when you receive a 2nd email with another nomination a few days later. Submissions for additional Health Activist Award nominees ends tomorrow (Friday, July 7th, 2017). After Friday, people will be encouraged to cast votes/support for the finalists once the nomination period ends. There’s still time to submit additional nominations for all categories and for anyone you feel is deserving of a nomination! Maybe a few people! Go to www.awards.wegohealth.com. Winners are decided on by the panel of judges based on a variety of factors, including how many supportive votes a nominee has in a specific category.

It’s the little things that keep you going — especially after being up all night working trying to fix one of your websites (You know, the one that has the most traffic per day? Yep, that one. Fun times.) which totally crashed because of a plug-in update and you can’t get into the back-end either. No.Idea.What.To.Do. And ….. you had a product review due, actually, it’s overdue, and it was about to be posted before the devil plug-in corrupted everything. And finally, you were trying to work on editing speaker presentation videos from two very important conferences you held recently for your still newly launching nonprofit, when you put one of the big memory cards (“big,” meaning it can store a lot of content, especially video content on it) into your computer to make sure that all of its videos had already been downloaded. Thinking that all videos had more than likely already been downloaded, you opt to still triple check. Then, you realize that the memory card is empty when your computer reads it. …

Days like today are why I’m grateful that the life I live and the work I do overlap. Gratitude.

Only when you are hypermobile, does the floor become your desk. It’s way more comfortable than sitting in a chair at a desk, or sitting at all. At least, I can move around and also perform PT exercises while I work. Notice the scapula support by Braceability – I finally gave into wearing something to help rounded, hypermobile shoulders while I’m working on the computer. Neck position is key though. You want to keep your neck long and aligned, and eyes cast down, versus your neck tilted/hyperextended to allow your eyes to look up at the computer screen.
