The common wisdom is that text messaging, e-mails, and video games are among the culprits that drive our sedentary society. We sit while we text one another, we sit while we send e-mails, and we sit while we play video games. We stand for a moment to stretch the tightness out of our legs from all that sitting, and then we sit some more.
Many of those who sit and research the effects of all this sitting believe that text messaging, e-mailing, and playing video games are as responsible as television for the downgrade in our general health and the expansion of our waistlines. If you doubt this, then pull up a chair this evening and look it up on the Internet.
If your research has confirmed the contentions about text messaging, e-mails, and video games, then you might also like to know that cell phones can do all of those.

Back pain happens. Even though the pain is constant, sometimes life just has to move on. Because life is an Olympic event , staying fit is the best way to stay healthy. But how does one safely exercise with a pain in the back? Some may say that such a feat is impossible without causing further injury or worsening pain. Others have found that by following some simple rules, exercising despite chronic low back pain is possible.

When life gets you down, let the power of music wash over you and give you some words to live by. Sure, the pain can feel like unbreakable chains that tie you down while life passes you by. Don't let pain "step all over you". Ask yourself, "Are you going to let (it) hold you down and make you cry"? With an open heart and open mind, the doorway of change can open. No one can open doors "expect for you." You just have to "hold on for one more day".
"Don't you know things can change"? Those unhappy days, those incredible messes can turn around and go your way. Maybe you were teased, abused, attacked, or injured? Lose the blame and let those worries pass you by. It is worth your time to "break free from the chains". You can change your life. Make up your mind to "hold on for one more day cause it is gonna go your way". Yeah, there is pain, but you need to hold on because "thing'll go your way". Just hold on for one more day.
