Fitbit


Today, Adventure Retreat Leader Patt Osborne of Boomer Chick Adventures wants to give a shout out to Fitbit.

Here's what she has to say... "What I love about my Fitbit is that it’s compact and easily slides onto my running clothes, and is simple to use. It tracks my amount of steps, my distance, my calories burned, and then sends me an email or text about how well (or poorly) I did. It keep me motivated to do go further when I’m feeling I want to slow down or even quit." 

Thanks Patt. See you on the trail!

Shhhhhhhhh... Quiet

Just today Patt and I were talking about all the noise out there. It seems everyone wants you to know what they are up to.

We've both received photos and texts about what's for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Or how the surf, birds, woodpeckers and even seaweed have effected a friend's life. And there's always the important and popular weather report from friends around the world.

So it's no small leap to go from the "noise" your friends and acquaintances add to your life to the chatter those who are marketing to you introduce though various media, not the least of which is email. And, yes, I'm reacting to this holiday season. Whew.


Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking is a book I'm drawn to. Admittedly I rebel at the word "Introvert." I'm not fond of labels. There are varying degrees of introvert and varying ways in which one can be an introvert. I prefer we all talk about ourselves in complete sentences rather than use labels. But that aside, we all need some Quiet in our lives. And whether we are an introvert or an extrovert, retreats in nature is one way to recharge. This book, by Susan Cain, will give you some insights. Enjoy!
