Focusing on being successful is a large part of what we teach and live at the PTSDA Karate.  Even with all the positive thinking and action, we all face failure.  When we don’t make the team or we lose our job, our spirits can get low really fast.

As a parent, it is easy to get caught up in taking care of everyone else.  As many of you know, it’s hard to take care of others if we are not in good health.  This week, we are going to focus on taking care of ourselves.   This is going to obviously be different for all of us.  A great place to start is what do I need to do to take better care of myself?  Is it rest, exercise, 20 minute of me time (hiding in the bathroom doesn’t count), a date?  Figure it out and go for it.   [ Read More ]
