Listening to Music

To drown out unnecessary noise whenever I am working I usually put on m-audio headphones and listen to my “zen” or “work” music, tunes I usually listen to when I work. Depending on the task I sometimes listen to rock, R&B and upbeat music just to get my brain running and once I’ve achieved my tempo or momentum I turn the music off but keep the headphones on so I wouldn’t hear any more than the voice in my head. I got mine from the musician friend store.

Musical Instruments for the Kids

My friends have enrolled some of their kids in music lessons. One enrolled her daughter in piano lessons. Another enrolled her son in drum lessons. Both kids have expressed interest in the instruments that’s why. I wonder if I get peavey guitar amps for the guitar for my son. He has expressed interest in learning the guitar. What my friends did was enroll them first in lessons for a few months. If the interest is still there and never wanes, they will buy them the real thing at home. And they did!

Preserving Memories

A friend’s parents recently celebrated their 50th golden wedding anniversary and I was pleasantly surprised that they were able to show clips from the their original wedding celebration during the AVP. Imagine, it was shot 50 years ago and it was still in pristine condition! I asked about it after the celebration and found out that the children had the wedding video clips restored through the Video Conversion Experts.

The same thing happened with her wedding at www.classybride.com. She was able to preserve it!

Personal Fitness Trackers

I bought my watch – it’s a stylish one that let me keep track of time, steps, calories and floors I’ve climbed!

It’s called the Fitbit. I’ve had it since February this year and it has helped me tremendously be mindful of how I move and work. I try to take in 5,000 steps a day but other fitness apps recommend I do 8,000. So I try to hit that goal three times a week.

Do you have a Fitbit?

Workouts & Exercise

Ever since I got myself a Fitbit last February, I became more conscious of how I move. Basically, I came to know that in an ordinary day – a day where I do nothing but work and eat – I just complete about 2000 steps. That is so sedentary. Since then, I made it a point to make it to at least 4000 steps (I know, it’s still low, but at least double my steps normally) a day.

Now I average around 8000 steps a day. My friend told me that it took her friend to lose 100lbs in a year by logging 10000 (10k) steps every single day. I need to get top quality sound isolating earphones so I can walk more without getting bored or feeling it as a chore.
