Walk the talk.

So, a few months ago my partner retired (early) and joined my blissful early retirement. Blissful until he joined. I mean. I’ve heard of couples enjoying every minute of their mutual retirement, I’ve read their stories (albeit not many of them, sorry- all that perfect sticky theme gets on my nerves). “we travel all the …

Park farther, get fitter.

My mother is 78, and hates exercising. At least she is consistent- she never liked working out. even as a teen she did everything in her power to avoid it, and sees no need to change her ways now. She is also a smoker, started at 16, and kept going for 62 years. still enjoys …

Things even minimalists need to keep!

When I grew up, there was this saying: “what would you save in a fire? the photo album!”. Needless to say that isn’t the case in 2022, since every photo anyone takes is sitting in the Google cloud somewhere. So- if you have spare hands- (and don’t need to carry all your gold bullions)-take your …

My “weird” sleeping hours.

*I remind you, yet again, that I am no sleep specialist-MD-scientist or anything of the sort. an early retired lawyer who happens to be a health enthusiast. Actually- that’s not true- I didn’t “happen to become a health enthusiast”. I chose it, and set it as a personal goal because I believe that maintaining good …

My 6 tips for Intermittent fasting: part 1.

First things first: the disclaimer- I am not a dietitian, nor a health expert, or anything even remotely close. I am a health enthusiast, a huge believer in self-reliance and self-care, in preparing ahead instead of fretting later, and generally researching the important stuff in life- maintaining a healthy lifestyle that can enable me to …

No one owes me anything!

I am a very judgmental person. Not only towards myself- which would have made it difficult for me yet quite a relief for others- I criticize everyone and everything. Most often- I would lay my harsh judgment on someone or other- only to realize moments later, that I am guilty of the same behavior. So …

My tips for stress-less mornings!

Since early retirement, I’ve perfected my morning routine to nearly 100% success. Such a pity I didn’t have those tips when I actually needed them– meaning while I was working+ juggling 3 kids +house maintenance. Sure- I always used the “to-do list” method- which is great, but with all due respect (and I do have …

6 legit ways to read books for free!!!

Already told you I’m an introvert, right? Close to 1278 times. approximately. Ever since I learned to read, my relationship with books was as close – as others would probably feel about a close friend. Of course for me- personally- books are so much better than friends because you don’t have to make the effort …

“What a genius!” (really??)

As it happens- across the street from my house, there is a kindergarten. Before you go all “awww-they are soooo sweeeeet, those little innocent faces !” , well, not exactly. I mean- they are 5-6 YO -not the actually innocent 0-3, and some of them can start the revolution today, so to speak. The thing …

How much did it cost to change my “honest opinion”?

You remember I am a class A introvert and a known unashamed nerd. Now you remember. Anyway- I love autumn and winter, can’t deal with harsh sun and heat- which is a shame since I live in a very hot place, suffice to say we have 8-9 months of summer a year- and I do …
