5 Top Weekly Blog posts, week 5, from #Introvert Inspirer

How To Reduce Your Health Risk with Sitting Disease

Who would know synchronicity would play into my blogging about sitting disease to the point that I am now considering a standing desk!

The short story about me now researching the right standing desk comes from a circuitous route from my annual physical exam and then, over to my chiropractor.

So if you are one with neck or back problems this last post in this series could provide you some ideas.

How Do You Manage Your Introvert Kryptonite?

He says that too much of other people is like kryptonite for introverts: the Kryptonite fictional element is from the Superman tale. In the tale, kryptonite is created from the remains of Superman’s native planet of Krypton, and has detrimental effects on Superman and other Kryptonians.

Today kryptonite can be a synonym for Achilles’ heel, the one weakness for someone. For introverts one kind of Kryptonite is not being much for groups or parties that go on and on.[Continue Reading…]

Want to Double Your Resolution and Habit Success?

When it comes to mastering new habits, are you an upholder like me?

If you are a regular reader of my blog you know how important it is to know our energy preferences – more introverted or more extroverted – for better self-care, interpersonal communication and more.
