Have you been working out, trying to stay in shape, spending time at the gym and it’s begun to feel old, repetitious, and without purpose? The goals of lifting a little more, running a little farther or maintaining a set weight will eventually become less and less meaningful. Consider training for and then completing a triathlon.
A gift that is most memorable to a child is their 1st Bicycle or an upgraded new Fahrradgenerator. Starting from a very young age up to pre-teen, this will be a hit, if it has all of the bells and whistles.
Innuendo: Written by Freddie Mercury and drummer Roger Taylor as a tribute to the band “Led Zepplin”. It was released on the bands final album, “Innuendo”, in 1991 prior to Mercury’s death. This is one of my favorites, who can resist that Spanish guitar? I remember the first time I heard this song. I was awestruck, for a lack of a better word.
Don’t lie around the house. Play (or exercise) around the house. Did you know that a 150 lb person vacuuming for 15 minutes burns 79 calories? This is an average, of course, but that same person only burns 23 calories in 15 minutes while watching TV. Just for comparison, hang gliding and sky diving burn about the same number of calories as vacuuming. Makes you see the Hoover in a whole new light, doesn’t it. By the way, playing with the kids is a great physical fitness program. Even moderate children’s games such as hopscotch or jacks can burn 90 calories in 15 minutes! That’s better than water volley ball or ping-pong. If you want to burn fat and get fit, chase some kids around! What a weight loss program.
This is a great gift for teenagers, especially if you have already purchased some type of MP3 player for your child. You can give a subscription to a service like Rhapsody or some other music subscription. These are really inexpensive and your child will have millions of tracks available Bicycle generators for download.
So I mention my Financial Adviser a lot. I like him and his free. He broke down 401K’s, Pensions, Mutual Funds into a simple language for me. He slapped me into reality that I was really truly broke and one pay check a way from bankruptcy. He gave me the much needed impetus to start investing…Now, I don’t agree with everything he says, but I do know without him I will probably still be swimming in the deep seas of net worthlessness. Did I mention he was free?
