Lifestyle detox before starting Dream Job

I have three weeks of between-job vacation. All I really have to do is go to a few meetings and do an in-state move. I haven't had this sort of vacation in years. I'd like to take this time to recharge and nourish my poor, battered, stressed-out body, mind and soul. Any suggestions? [more inside]

Help a Peruvian deal with the jetlag he gets from overnight and weekend trips to Bolivia

Parents of 3+ year olds! How do you deal with being tired *all the time*? I've gone from being single and childless and in my early 30s to being the boyfriend of a mother of two boys (3 and 7). Things are astonishingly good between us, and the boys are great (albeit a lot of hard work, even according to their Mum), but I'm *so* tired after helping out with the boys - it's all the games of tag, the nerf gunfights, the question and answer sessions, etc. We're really enjoying ourselves, but ohmigod I'm exhausted. Help me not feel like I'm letting the side down at home with my housemates, at her place, out and about with my friends and at work. Other than 'coffee', 'more sleep' and 'less time with the girlfriend and the boys' (done, done, and ain't gonna happen), what are your protips for fighting off tiredness and irascibility?

Raw food lifestyle with a family (and a budget)... help!

My wife and I have decided we'd like to make some fairly big changes to our eating habits. We eat relatively healthy as it is, but we'd like to set a goal of eating at least 51% "raw foods". We're a bit overwhelmed and would love some recommendations for recipe books, meal planning, grocery shopping, etc. [more inside]

Eating out with milk allergy/intolerance

I want to know how have people with milk allergies and/or lactose intolerance changed their lifestyle in terms of eating out. It seems it should be simple- all you need to know if there is milk in it- but then again, not so much, esp if its not consistent (different brands etc). I am not interested in answers of the kind, "ask the waiter" but I am more interested in knowing how it affected this part of your life. Is it a drain to eat out with people at the new office when they ask you out? Do you turn a date down just because..? How did you accept that you may never be able to enjoy that ice-cream or cheesecake again?? (sigh)

I have independent means. Help find a low paid, but interesting and social job.

I have a self sustaining internet business that easily supports my lifestyle, but is very isolating. I am in the fortunate position of only having to work 4 hours a week for the next couple of years. I am however going out of my mind with boredom. I want to find an interesting and social job in the UK. Pay isn’t an issue, but I don’t want to work for free. Any suggestions? If it leads to career outside the digital solo realm, all the better, but this is not essential. I am 30, male, and live in Brighton.

How do I maintain a visionary/inspired mindset to get where I want to be in life?

I find when I'm travelling/on holiday I'm easily able to envisage what lifestyle I want and how I can reach my desired lifestyle. As soon as I return to my day-to-day life my mind goes blank and what was previously clear to me suddenly becomes cloudy. It's not that I lack to skills to implement the lifestyle I want, it's that I can't keep a clear image of what it is that I want. How do you maintain the visionary/inspired mindset everyday to get the life you want?

Interviewing Risk-Takers, What To Ask?

If you had the task of conducting interviews with people meeting one or more of the criteria listed below, what kind of questions would you ask them? - People who have dropped their 9 to 5 or a high pay/high stress job in order to follow their passion. - People who have started their own unique small business. I'm thinking along the lines of something progressive and sustainable. - People who live unique lifestyles or combine their lifestyle with their job. For example, a person who turns a hobby into a profession. - People who have beaten the odds to achieve something extraordinary. - People who have taken risks in order to achieve their ideal lifestyle. Thanks!

My cup runneth over

I am a web developer, and was working for 9 mos for a large corporation as an outside contractor paid through an agency. Good company, great job and better still, they hired me a month ago as a full time employee, with benefits, corner office--all the trimmings. The Employee handbook says new hires get to fill a cup with their urine since its a "drug free workplace" but rehires don't. After that an existing employee can only be (re)tested for just cause. In short: I was given a job offer and I accepted. I went through orientation a leisurely 3 weeks and 1.5 paychecks later, but its now been a month and they still haven't asked me to fill the cup. My urine would be clean as of today. When can I safely assume the time to appropriately ask me to fill the cup has expired? I really miss burning the rope...
