I really appreciate this article for allowing me to see how I can shift my mind from that sort of thinking toward my own needs, especially regarding exercise. It's hard to find the time for a workout, but these creative ideas for squeezing one in--on a lunch break, at the playground--are super helpful.

    "This is a fun way for kids to complete their chores and earn rewards, and for Mom to keep track of progress! It syncs between devices, so each child can view it on their phone and mark their progress. Mom can open it and see how much has been accomplished at any time. Kids can customize their layout and fun colors and stickers and Moms can add chores in several different repeat intervals and slots. As a downside, this is only for older kids who can read, and any technical issues must be handled by the parent account. "
