  1. I love this. It reminds me of a post I think you should do about all of the little things we (and our kids) are supposed to do EVERY day. Drink 8 glasses of water, read 20-30 minutes, do exercises at my desk chair, put on eye cream, etc. I wonder how many hours it would actually add up to and if we’d ever actually be able to consume all of the “recommended” fruits and vegetables.
