Leap Day

Today is February 29, Leap Day!  You get 1 additional day to do something productive, do something for your health, do something for your wellness, do something for your fitness, an extra day to treat yourself kindly... what will you do with it?  Be sure to do something special, since this extra day only comes every 4 years.
Here are some of my suggestions for dedicating this extra Leap Day to your Self Soul Space:

  • Do an extra 29 minutes of exercise
  • Eat 9 servings of fruits & vegetables; try juicing to get some in
  • Eat 2 meals without meat
  • Drink an extra 29oz of water today
  • Start your sleep routine 29 minutes earlier

  • Smile at least 29 times 
  • Take 29 minutes of quiet-quality time; try an at home spa treatment
  • Meditate for a total of 29 minutes
  • Say 29 positive things to those around you, including yourself
  • Dedicate 29 minutes to tackling a project or your to-do list

  • Shave 2-9 minutes off your shower; save water
  • Power off your computer for 29 minutes; reduce energy
  • Turn off the TV for 29 minutes (when you would normally watch); reduces energy & promotes quiet quality time
  • Use 2 reusable water bottles/tumblers for your beverages today; reduces waste in landfills
  • Eliminate 9 paper napkins/towels today, use cloth; reduces waste
I hope everyone enjoys their extra Leap Day, make it positive, make it healthy, make it count!


  1. I bought some of these to try to reduce the amount of paper towels we go through. They're awesome! Each Skoy cloth is equivalent to 15 rolls of paper towels and has the absorbency and soft texture of 15 high quality paper towels. You can wash them in the dishwasher or washing machine. They dry really fast so they aren't a breeding ground for bacteria. I bought mine off amazon with the free shipper savings. Each pack comes with 4 skoy cloths and cost about $7. I bought a pack of white ones (for the kids and kitchen) and a pack of the colored ones (for cleaning bathrooms and such.) I just didn't want to mix up the ones I wipe my kids faces with, with the ones I wipe my toilets with :)
