It is important to be aware of what you are eating and how much food you are consuming each day in order to make the right changes in your diet. We suggest that for at least one week, you write down everything that you consume so at the end of the week you can look over it and evaluate where you need to make some changes. For example if you are snacking too much between meals throughout the day, you will become aware of it and know to cut back. Sometimes even a small, simple change, like cutting out soda, can make a big difference.
The smartphone is our most personal of personal computers. There are already one billion in use. I predict this number will grow to at least 3 billion — by 2018. The multi-trillion-dollar smartphone market is remaking computing, technology, Silicon Valley, of course. But also…learning, work, entertainment, publishing, retail, culture and politics.
Number Two: Take a Publishing-News Fast. Let’s face it-the happy new year 2019 wishes from publishing is mostly depressing. Major imprints closing down. Editors losing jobs all over the place. The latest news of print sales falling 9 percent last year makes your heart plummet, even though this slack and more has been taken up with e-book sales. Some of us have no choice but to follow the business end of things, but you don’t-you can take a nice long fast from this and let your creativity soar. Whenever I’m writing, I let publishing go take a long hike-in the opposite direction from the path I walk.
It’s also nice to hire yourself a real estate agent. In the summer, you tend to go on a lot of trips and you are probably going to be out of town a lot. When a big buyer rolls around and offers you an offer, but you are in Hawaii, how horrible is that going to be? They may want to see the house right now but you just can’t do it. This is why a real estate agent is so handy. They will do all of that for you.
It is also important to set priorities and to make short term goals so that these commitments are obtainable. By setting priorities we give our lives a sense of purpose. Having healthy relationships is also important. These involve sharing respect and setting healthy boundaries. We also need to work on growing spiritually. This involves being aware of where we are in the moment, not just looking for a higher power.
It is a fact of life that eating less and exercising more will promote weight loss. Is there something more than just the fat itself? There is! It is called mucoid plaque.
Talk to the employees who remain with the company. Let them know what is going on. You want to be able to help them and provide more information if necessary. Continue to focus on the task at hand. Even though you have people who will be leaving, there will still be others left. You still have to be a manager and do what you were doing before the layoffs.
