Mindful Procrastination

Things have been pretty busy here. Business at the chocolate store is picking up for Easter, and I'm preparing for my graduation from University of Florida (less than three weeks away!). In my spare time, I've been playing racquetball, practicing trumpet, and enjoying my subscription to Netflix.

It seems that for every item I cross off my To-Do List, I add two more. There just aren't enough hours in the day to accomplish everything I'd like to. My yoga instructor shared something with us last week that's been helpful.

"Do not allow thoughts of other times and places to spoil your experience of the present moment. Trust that whatever is waiting for you will still be there later."

Easier said than done. But as with anything else, it's a habit that will get stronger with practice.
Sick of spending too much on electronics accessories? Check out Monoprice. I recently bought a Mini-DVI to DVI adapter for my MacBook for $4.66 (Best Buy wanted to charge me $16.99).

How about all that change accumulating in your penny jar? Learn how to carry a certain combination of coins so that you can make any amount from 1 to 99 cents with as few coins as possible. (Via The World of Stuff)
