America now has a high obesity rate, which is partially due to healthier foods being more expensive than non-healthy foods. A way to counter act this is try and at least eat one or two vegetables a day and be consistent when staying fit. Many people are into sports and are already in shape. But to those who aren't, and would like to experience an healthier version of themselves: You can stay in shape without being in sports. Going to the gym is an option, but many people feel intimidated, when in reality everyone is worried about themselves.

Basic Training gives new Soldiers a card that defines their values. While every Soldier adopts the Army values, some take them to heart and make them personal. Others merely remember the acronym LDRSHIP to avoid push-ups.

The start of summer was a bit rainy. Let's say it was raining a lot! The sun is out now and I'm loving it. Soaking up the sun is always fun. Get out doors and keep busy, there's always something to do, it's just a matter of actually being proactive and exploring new adventures.

It's the beginning of the month, which is one of the hottest months out of the year. During this time we spend a lot of our time outdoors. We go swimming at the pool, lounging on the beach, enjoying water activities outside, and maintaining our lawn as well. Skin cancer is real and we should always take the necessary precautions to avoid any type of health issues.

As we get older and are more involved in different things including school's social groups, sport activities and even a job; it becomes harder for us to actually read a good book. As much as I love reading, it can be difficult sometimes because I just want to watch some television or playing on my phone. Eventually, you'll watch everything interesting or what you want to watch isn't on, thus making it perfect for you to pick up a book and start reading.

As May ends springtime, summertime quickly approaches as well as the end of this school year. Many feel like the school year went by extremely too quickly and others feel like it didn't go by soon enough. Regardless how you fast you feel school went by or didn't, it's what you experienced that counts.

The battle rages. The struggle is real. The options are endless. The fight is always abounding. The victory is never final. The end is never realized. The choice is yours. Are you going to be a pessimist or an optimist? These two words are constantly at tension. An optimist is one seeing the good in the situation; a pessimist one is seeing the bad in the situation. Two people may see the same thing yet view a different outcome. I bring this up because as of late, I have been struggling with being more a pessimist than an optimist. I ...

Mother's Day is approaching and we all need to appreciate our mothers/mother figures that are in our lives. They continue to take care of us even when we are just slightly a little hard to handle. Our mothers are extremely understanding and they provide for us in ways we can't imagine.

As a young girl, I can recollect singing a song entitled "O Be Careful," and there was a verse that cautioned the singer to be careful what you say. As I child, when I sang in bible study and vacation bible school, I developed a child-like understanding. I acknowledged that I had to say kind things to my siblings and classmates, and that summed up the equation of my understanding. However, as life journeys took course, I began to understand in depth that what we speak is singularly the most powerful influence to humanity.

Remember when you were a kid and you couldn't wait to be a grown up so you could make grown up decisions - only to grow up and wish you were a kid again? You finally came to the realization that being a grown up wasn't everything that it was cracked up to be. It kind of reminds me of one of the familiar sayings that I heard growing up: "You make your bed, you lay in it." This was another way of saying if you make a decision, you had better be willing to live with the consequences ...

Last Saturday was Earth Day! We definitely should celebrate the planet we all live on and it's fair to say, we haven't been treating it so nicely. With all the pollution, toxins, and trash throughout the earth, it's not doing as well as it should be. We all can ultimately slow down these horrible practices and eventually stop them, so the earth can thrive to its full potential.

Who is your tribe? Recently I was asked this question and I had to stop and think. The definition tells us that a tribe is a social division in a traditional society consisting of families or communities linked by social, economic, religious, or blood ties, with a common culture and dialect, typically having a recognized leader. By this definition we are all in a tribe.
