You can, as the song says, bring home the bacon, fry it up in a pan, do eight things at once (seven more than your man). But as you’ll discover, more is not merrier.
By Sara Reistad-Long
Get rid of all the junk that accumulates in your bedroom. Don’t use it as a dumping ground for kids’ art projects, laundry, newspapers, and magazines. No one feels sexy going to bed in a warehouse.
First, get everything up off the floor. Store the things that warrant it and trash the things that don’t. Clear off the surfaces of chests and tables, and only replace what is meaningful or pretty. You don’t want to see anything that reminds you of chores or obligations. Everything your eye lands on should make you feel relaxed and confident.

Excerpt from the Book An Accidental Athlete: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Middle Age by John Bigham
What characterizes the act of play, it seems to me, is that it isn’t defined by arbitrary performance standards. When I watch children play, when I remember what it was like for me to play as a child, I see only the joy in the activity itself, not the awful prospect of failure or even the promise of success. It’s just play. It’s difficult for us as adults to give ourselves permission to enjoy something that we don’t think we’re very good at. We tell ourselves that once we’ve reached some level of proficiency, once we’ve acquired some minimum set of skills, then—and only then—will the activity begin to be fun. At least that’s the way it was for me.
Rearrange Your Furniture:
A quick switch can dramatically alter the look and feel of a room by changing the flow and the focal point. You don’t have to move everything around, though. Try swapping a chair from the family room with one you have in the bedroom or even a mirror from one room with a piece of art from another. Small changes really can have a big impact.
