This is different from number 6 in terms of the actual time of the helping act. 9. Like in getting physical. 10. 11. Let go. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19.

7 Steps for Achieving a Super Simple Life This is a guest post by Joy from Just Plain Joy. When I started Just Plain Joy, I wanted to create an outlet for exploring and defining a simple life. I decided I wanted to pursue a simpler life for several reasons – I wanted to save more money to invest in my child’s future, I wanted more time to spend on the things that matter most to me, and I wanted to reduce my impact on the environment. The benefits of simpler living have been overwhelming – I worry less about finances, I spend less energy keeping track of my possessions, I have a greater appreciation for natural beauty, I am less concerned about status, and I’m enjoying life! My 7 steps for achieving a super simple life Simple has many interpretations. clutter-freedebt-freeorganizedgreen Here are seven steps for achieving a super simple life based on these four concepts: 1.

Develop Perfect Memory With the Memory Palace Technique The Memory Palace is one of the most powerful memory techniques I know. It’s not only effective, but also fun to use — and not hard to learn at all. The Memory Palace has been used since ancient Rome, and is responsible for some quite incredible memory feats. Eight-time world memory champion Dominic O’Brien, for instance, was able to memorize 54 decks of cards in sequence (that’s 2808 cards), viewing each card only once. Of course, most of us are not in Dominic’s memory championship line of business (or in Hannibal’s line of business for that matter). The Memory Palace The Memory Palace technique is based on the fact that we’re extremely good at remembering places we know. 5 Steps to Use the Memory Palace Technique 1. First and foremost, you’ll need to pick a place that you’re very familiar with. A good first choice could be your own home, for example. Also, try to define a specific route in your palace instead of just visualize a static scene. Familiar streets in your city. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Silk Tie Dyed Easter Eggs Tutorial | mommyknows - Parenting, Rec Silk tie dyed Easter eggs are so much fun to make and way less messy than buying a dying kit or using vinegar and food colouring! First you’ll need to start with 100% silk ties. Right now we’re on skiing vacation, so rather than rid Mr. MK of a few duds laying around in his closet, I picked up a few from a thrift shop in Banff. A good looking tie doesn’t necessarily mean a good looking Easter egg, so go ahead and use whatever you can find. Go ahead and open up the ties by removing the stitching up the middle. Wrap your egg in the silk fabric and tie it up at one end. This is where you can get creative. In addition, through trial and error we discovered that you don’t get large white spaces on your finished Easter eggs if you wrap the egg many times over with the string. After you’ve wrapped the egg in silk you’ll need to wrap it in a clean white cotton. Boil the eggs for 20 minutes in water and a 1/4 cup of white vinegar. The kids love unwrapping them! Enjoy :)
