I deal with internet marketing so much that I rarely think about offline marketing for my websites. Just the other day someone asked me if I had business cards. I didn’t because I rarely need them.
I spend so much time and hassle marketing online and I never know how the search engines are going to change. Offline marketing would be much more stable but would have a smaller audience. I’ve been thinking about starting to sell physical products locally, probably at farmer’s markets. I would need a lot more than business cards though.
I would also need cheap vinyl banner printing at zooprinting.com. Plus, it would need to be able to handle some of the crazy weather that’s in Southern Utah. I think the grommet edges would be the best for that. Do you do any offline marketing?
I think it was about a year ago I decided to lose some of the weight that just seemed impossible to take off. I tried a lot of workouts and ate healthy all year, and I gained a few pounds. I have decided to let this particular experiment go. I just can’t beat it. I don’t know if it’s because of fibromyalgia or my hormones but the weight won’t come off. I’ve decided to just start focus on what is best for my body and working against it all the time like this probably isn’t the best thing.
In the same amount of time I have been on so many programs and forums with people who were doing the same thing as I was but maybe not quite as diligently as I was. I’ve looked at their astonishing before and after photos and even took some “before” pictures of my own. However, I never got to the after picture. Has anyone actually had an easy or at least a normal time of losing weight with fibromyalgia?
I am a pretty high stress person. I work a lot so that I can take time off when I’m sick. Some people have pointed out that I probably get sick from pushing myself so hard but I don’t feel like I really have a choice at all because I have to be prepared for the not so great times.
Last month I decided to make a monthly schedule, complete with time to have fun. I decided that the fun and relaxing was just as important as the somewhat impossible work goals that I set for myself. I know this about myself so I set a range that was 1/3 lower of what I would usually ask of myself. By having some of the stress off I actually got a lot more done.
I worked really hard and got almost all of it done. However, at the end of the month I could feel my body on the verge of falling apart, like it was fragile and held together with spring pins that were too short. I knew it was time to rest but it was already time to start my goals for June. I think the idea will still work if I just put fewer things on the list. How do you manage stress?
