I want Candy! (Part 1)

Candy Corns and Candy Pumpkins by Juushika Redgrave
With Halloween here, we all know what's around the corner- extremely cheap candy. If you're anything like me, you know this is not good. If it's candy on sale, I want to buy it. If it's there, I want to eat it. Bad thing generally ensue, unless of course they don't.

Here are a few strategies I like to use to avoid the horror.

Recommendation: Dance


Every day, have a dance party.

Research shows dancing to be, not only good for your body, but also your brain. It's also an exercise that can be varied according to your age, fitness level, ability, and tastes, and is particularly social. Why not have a dance party today?

The Lovely Warrior


Lately, I've been reading a lot of  Wonder Woman from the 80s. A good friend of mine got me into it last year at a time where I was sick and tired of being sicked and tired. 

I had just finished school, moved out, started a great relationship, gone on a journey to my father's homeland and there I was, in my newest sublet, feeling a little like a failure. Sick and tired. 

Perfectionism aside, it can be difficult to feel like a million bucks when everything seems pretty awesome, but I'm not feeling too hot for some reason. Enter the question of the lovely warrior (ie. me as I can be).
