Roger Federer Wimbledon 2017 live training session, can he win 19 major tiles?

Can Roger Federer win his 19th grand slam title?

I suggest skipping ahead to different parts of this video. The warm-up will be boring to some people and they will be more interested in the questions and answers towards the end of this video. I think if you want to be a serious tennis player you should watch the entire video and notice how important a proper warm up is to prevent injuries.

Healthy Ways to Keep Anxiety at Bay

Healthy Ways to Keep Anxiety at Bay

By Kim Thomas 

The changing of the seasons, especially a time as symbolic as the spring, where the world seems to come alive again after being dormant during the long winter months can trigger anxiety for people who struggle with change and the unknown. While other people look forward to new opportunities and adventures, people with anxiety focus on what can go wrong. The truth is, anxiety knows no season and can be a constant struggle for those who are afflicted by it, which is why it’s important to find ways to keep your anxiety at bay and reduce your stress when you’re feeling overwhelmed. Here are a few ideas for putting you on the right track. Get Support It’s important to understand that you are not the only person combatting anxiety. If you find support from a therapist or support group, you will learn coping strategies and get inspiration and a boost from people just like you. Sometimes just knowing that you are not alone and having a safe space to share your fears is enough to help you keep going and find ways to minimize your anxiety. You also may need support for another issue relating to your anxiety or underlying mental health condition: addiction. If you are a recovering addict or are at risk of becoming an addict, you should seek treatment to have a better chance of approaching every day in a positive, healthy way. Keep Track of Your Progress It’s easy to get bogged down in everything that is wrong or that you have not yet accomplished. The challenge is to make an effort to take the time to recognize what you have accomplished, and keep track of your progress. Consider keeping a log beside your bed so you can write down your day’s triumphs. Research from the University of Texas shows that people who focus on reducing anxiety and depression increase their happiness by giving themselves emotional support and practicing self-compassion. Acknowledge the positives in your life and make it a habit of tracking them in your journal or writing yourself an email, note, or letter. Get Organized Because people with anxiety tend to stay home more often than people who don’t, you should focus on getting organized. A messy, cluttered home leads to unwelcome stress, as does being unable to find your belongings. Clean, organized homes relieve stress and improve your overall health. To avoid feeling overwhelmed and anxious about how to declutter, start with one room at a time. You may want to begin in your bedroom so that you can create a relaxing environment that helps you sleep better. Go through your belongings and make sure each item has a place. Make a “keep” pile, a “garbage” pile, and a “donate” pile. Then, move on to a space like the kitchen or living room where you spend a great deal of your time. Save areas that you don’t spend much time in for last. Set the Tone with Music Creating a calming environment is one of the best ways to minimize anxiety. If you get into the habit of listening to music that relaxes you, especially when you are completing tasks or start to feel your anxiety rise, you will do yourself a tremendous favor. Take the time to make a playlist that will set the tone for the way that you want to feel. It’s also a good idea to listen to music that makes you dance, sing, or smile. Dancing, singing, and smiling are activities that boost your mood, get your blood pumping, and make you feel better naturally. The more active you get, the more exercise you will get, and the less anxiety you will have. Keeping anxiety at bay in your day-to-day life is within your grasp if you get the support you need, keep track of your progress, get organized, and listen to music that sets the right tone and mood for your day.

Chris Archer redeemed himself 4-2-17 vs. the NY Yankees in a home opener with a 7 to 3 win! Go RAYS!!

By Captain Belvedere

You folks may not know it, but you should.
The Chicago Cubs won the World Series last year under the supervision of (prior) RAYS manager Joe Maddon.  Basically Joe used a formula that I have used several times successfully, you take the best and brightest from a prior job, plop them into a current job, and tell them, the "sky is the limit!"
Well, it worked for him last year and he deserves it.  But what you didn't know is that the Angel of Joe's eye was a youngster, just slightly older than Kirk Belvederes age, named Chris Archer.  

Chris is an exceptional pitcher and unfortunately the team (currently owned and run by former Wall Street financiers) bet their entire season on a 27 year old. Unfortunately, last year was a disaster for the RAYS.  Well with all fabulous stories this one has a great ending too!
Chris redeemed himself today vs. the NY Yankees in a home opener with a 7 to 3 win!!   Goooooo  RAYS!!!
