I use a stainless steel canteen - old school. Some things don;t need to be improved upon, because they can't be. When I was in Nepal, do you think they used glass or plastic bottles in the Himalayas? No - always stainless steel. It never breaks, never wears out, and is always safe.
Love planks - great variation here!

So true. Overcome!
Every time you put off a task you know you should do, it grows in weight. And the heavier it feels, the more you put it off. Until finally you have a leviathan you are carrying around in your mind. Then one day you just face it down, and do it. Within 10 minutes, that beast has shed its extra pounds and appears just as it is -- A task you are well equipped to overcome.

Yesterday I found myself annoyed by a fly on a window. I sat staring at the fly for a few moments, until accidentally I shifted my focus behind the fly through the window. In the sky, soft willowy clouds drifted like swans through a sun-drenched blue sky, deflecting the glowing sunbeams as they passed by. Suddenly the fly didn't really matter any more. And then it even flew away. I realized that I often do the same thing in my life. I'll be tired for example, or have a nagging pain, and i'll focus so much of my attention on that nuisance that I will fail to notice the grand beauty happening around me.
