Art Museum has family fun; wake up early

Art Museum of Southeast Texas
The most recent free family arts day at Art Museum of Southeast Texas was bustling with activity and I’m so glad I rounded the corner where I got a lump of clay to create my own little bowl.
Everybody’s creative, but you can also purchase someone else’s festively painted little bowls in the museum gift shop.
Check out the museum in downtown Beaumont any time, and the next family day on Saturday, May 21, featuring a Birds in Art theme. All the birders who “flock” to the Port Arthur and Beaumont area should love this one.

No more snooze button: The 5 a.m. Miracle
 Waking up early to run is what Jeff Sanders calls a double kick in the pants. Yet it’s kind of the whole concept he’s trying to pitch in his book “The 5 AM Miracle: Dominate Your Day Before Breakfast.”
This is bout being a rock star in your work and home life by maximizing your productivity and perfecting your schedule.
The results sound good, but do we want to wake up early for it? Sanders gets a “no way” response much of the time, but just read through. He can guide you through some tips and he promises that you don’t exactly have to begin at 5 a.m. – that’s a guide to committing to make the good stuff happen. It’s all up to you. He’s got plenty of motivation, and here’s just a bit of it:

1.   Bounce out of bed bright and early.
2.    Hydrate like you life in the desert: He says your body is thirsty after sleep and he drinks a liter before his morning espresso.
3.    Quiet time is essential: develop a calm, inspirational habit.
4.    Fruit for breakfast: his green smoothie fits right in.
5.   Consume inspirational and informative content: Successful people do this.
6.   Pump your blood: Even 10 minutes of exercise can help. He’s a runner.
7.   Plan your day like you mean it: It puts you in the driver’s seat.
