February 20 2010 Editor Assistance Newsletter
I've been busy all week finalizing and typo-hunting on our upcoming Spring issue of Mused, our Literary Magazine. It is looking gorgeous! As we finish up this cycle, we're always eager to bring fresh team members in to learn how a literary magazine works and to add new skills onto their resume.
If you have any interest in being a part of the Mused team, please let me know!
Getting in Shape
After distance learning and stress relief, the third most common goal cited by editors for 2010 is getting into better shape. We all lead busy lives, and our own health often comes dead last on the list of chores! However, as we all have heard many times, if you don't take care of yourself, then you cannot take good care of the others around you. Also, you want to be a great role model for your family, to show them through actions that health is important to treasure!
We have *many* editors here who are enthusiastically willing to help you take those first steps.
Monica, our Exercise editor, practically lives in her forum, waiting for people to help out -
Nancy our Yoga editor helps you stay limber and maintain your balance - something VERY important as we age!
Caroline in Martial Arts can help out whether you're interested in Tai Chi, Qi Gong, or Karate!
Plus we have a *ton* of sports forums to help you get started in an active lifestyle you enjoy -
The key is to find something you love to do. Exercise shouldn't be a chore. You shouldn't have to drag yourself down to the gym every day and mope through a workout. I love my hula hoop! It is *fun* to pull it out and play with it! I love doing yoga. The stretching feels incredibly good to my back and brings me great peace. If you find things you honestly adore and look forward to, then being healthy becomes a natural, happy part of your lifestyle.
Just take one LITTLE step. Post in a forum about something you have an interest in. We'll take it from there!
