Beach Walk 666 – It’s Not Too Late to Take a Vacation!

Tell your self and your boss you want a vacation – it helps stave off heart attacks and is linked to direct health benefits!

Americans work too much for our well-being. A link has been shown between less vacation and more heart attacks, not to mention lower productivity. Americans appear to be the worst offenders, while our hard-working German counterparts take an average of 35 vacation days a year! Here is Norm Brodsky’s article from Inc that I mentioned also. It’s a perfect opportunity for us to help each other get unplugged from the knee-jerk response of over-working.

Hawaiian word:

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 468 – My Inner Slacker

It’s summer and I am feeling like slacking a bit. Plus, we’ve been experiencing all sorts of obstacles to getting Beach Walks out daily. Plus, it doesn’t leave us much time to look for sponsors!

So I am going to play it as it goes and take some mini-vacation time the next few weeks. Please visit the Archives (scroll down to search by Category or Month) and get caught up on some back episodes. Then leave me a message with your faves; I’m always curious what few episodes to point new visitors too.
