  3. Never spend your money before you have it.
  4. Never buy what you do not want, because it is cheap; it will be dear to you.
  5. Pride costs us more than hunger, thirst and cold.
  6. We never repent of having eaten too little.
  7. Nothing is troublesome that we do willingly.

  9. Take things always by their smooth handle.
  10. When angry, count ten, before you speak; if very angry, an hundred.

“I do two different things. For cardio I do SoulCycle. I really don’t like to run, plus I have terrible knees and get bored on the elliptical. SoulCycle is basically a dance party on a bicycle, and you burn calories and it’s so fun. Then I also do Core Fusion at Exhale Spa locations. It mixes together Pilates and barre method. It’s really hard and kicks my butt, so those two together work perfectly. 

*SoulCycle and a Core Fusion workout. Find a class or a workout online.

“An Atheist loves himself and his fellow man instead of a god. An Atheist accepts that heaven is something for which we should work now — here on earth — for all men together to enjoy. An Atheist accepts that he can get no help through prayer, but that he must find in himself the inner conviction and strength to meet life, to grapple with it, to subdue it and to enjoy it. An Atheist accepts that only in a knowledge of himself and a knowledge of his fellow man can he find the understanding that will help lead to a life of fulfillment.”

*A true leap of faith for some may be that the above description of an Atheist sounds pretty good.
