Beach Walk 590 – Bob & Susan’s Hawaii Vacation

If you follow the comments on Beach Walks or have joined us over on The Reef (our social network) then you’ve no doubt come across “Bob from Canada.”

For the month of February, he is “Bob from Hawaii” and is joined by his charming wife Susan. We met for a sunset walk at Magic Island, followed by dinner and “dessert” at a live Mighty J concert. That fulfills my definition of “Life is Good!” We talk about Bob and Susan’s trip to the big waves on the north shore and when (and when not) to get a car in Waikiki.

Beach Walk Audio 9 – Breathing Brings Joy to Life

beachwalkaudio graphicBreathing techniques for stress reduction.

One of the main reasons I go to beach every day is to re-center myself, to wash away stress, to remember the things in life that I so easily forget. Like how to breathe when I am tense. Today’s episode is on one of my favorite techniques, a simple counting method that I find very easy and very quick.

Have you tried it? What other techniques do you like to practice? Share ’em with us please!

I’ll be joining the Health Hacks podcast, so please check that out if you are looking for discussions on health.

Beach Walk Audio 8 – Competition and Hidden Rules

beachwalkaudio graphicNot rain not wind will keep us from going out paddling on Aloha Friday!

Competition has been in the air lately. Last Saturday was the Keiki Canoe Race (check out BW 425), American Idol winner was crowned, and our own videoblogger VlogDeathMatch music video contest winner was chosen (and not without some voting hanky panky.) As Jim and Charlie over at The Clip Show pointed out so cleverly, the rules for this contest were “Anything Goes.” (This episode is rated R.)

Knowing the real rules can really change how you play and enjoy the game. It’s not always as it appears. The “best” is subjective. And so on. Listen to the regular podcast here or listen in iTunes to see the accompanying photos in the rain.
