Daily 5 - Year 2, Day 222

Today's Daily 5:
  1. Fun numbers like 222.
  2. a great yoga class this morning.  I went in really stiff and sore and thought I was going to pass out a couple times during the class, but left in much less pain (in parts of me anyway) and feeling warm and relaxed and a bit more ready to face the day ahead.
  3. A perspective shift - I was quite frustrated to have to take 2 hours out of a busy day to make a trip to the university library to pick up a book that had arrived for me.  I'm so glad I did, though, since the book ended up being an incredibly useful source for the term paper that I had to write today.
  4. The way taking a long shower nearly always works some sort of magic and makes you feel better
  5. breaking an overwhelming challenge into manageable chunks and then slowing accomplishing each one
  6. finding ways to break up the challenges - supper breaks, play Angry Birds for a few minute breaks, a massage break, and oreo cookie breaks.
  7. getting a massage/natural health treatment from my mom.  I was feeling pretty crummy today, and between yoga and the massage (and some painkillers) I'm doing quite a bit better now
  8. Getting the major portion of the term paper I was most concerned about written.  It's due Monday, but it's done.  All I have to do tomorrow is a quick edit, check one citation, and create the references page.  Maybe an hour of work, tops!
  9. The huge sense of accomplishment (and relief!) that comes from plowing through a fairly challenging task in a relatively short and intense period of time
  10. Knowing that tomorrow I can actually fully enjoy my Sunday morning time at home alone, without having this paper hanging over my head.

Hello again
not sure this magazine will be your cup of tea generally, but thought you might be interested in the Grey's Anatomy discussion they have every week

Thanks Jenny! And yes, the Grey's article was interesting to read :)
