When I’m early for my train, I do standing forward folds on the platform. When my kids are at the park playing with other kids, I do pull-ups on the monkey bars. When my kids are subbed out during their soccer games, I play soccer on the sideline behind the parents sitting in chairs. GenerallyContinue reading “Being an Oddball”

I’m not prepared to say that ‘all things are meant to be’ or, suggest any kind of predetermination. However, the wisdom of what already works is something we cannot ignore. And just about every ‘successful’ person I read about or listen to says, in one way or another, that ‘you are the average of theContinue reading “Synchronicity”
Physical Symptoms and Emotional Causes
Isn’t is possible that if you’re often sick, stressed, or psychically unwell in some way, that it’s got nothing to do with your body at all? What is it in your life that triggers these onsets? Be brave enough to answer that, and your body will thank you. “Illness can be an opportunity for spiritualContinue reading “Physical Symptoms and Emotional Causes”
Fuel For Your Fire
When you begin anything new to improve your health, some people around will become jealous. Some of them will be people whom you love, or work with. Or both. They will say things to chip away at your efforts. Little things that you might ignore in passing, but dwell on later, when it’s time toContinue reading “Fuel For Your Fire”
There are things which you dream of in between the things that you do. Some people are brave enough to do the reverse; to do the things they dream about, first. Are you?
Health Is More Than Just Food

While they were talking to other people. While they were walking. In the lobby. In the bathroom. While they were eating breakfast, lunch, and dinner. YouContinue reading “Health Is More Than Just Food”
Why Did You Decide to ‘Become Healthy’?
I’m often asked, ‘What caused (or started) you to become healthy?’ The answer is that I started to read. It’s very important to notice that my first step, my first act in transforming from being 5’10, 220 LBS, grossly out of shape and unfit, into a far leaner, faster, stronger, and resilient body was notContinue reading “Why Did You Decide to ‘Become Healthy’?”
When I was much younger, I used to crave excess amounts of food, alcohol, and even some drugs. Why? What was missing? Those cravings never were actually fulfilled, not matter how much I ate or drank. And believe me, I ate a lot. Without allowing myself to connect into real relationships, without having any kindContinue reading “Cravings”
It Might Be Urgent …
… that you’re in need of a whole new diet. Even if you’re not overwheight, or noticing any problems. What you are eating does not always translate into how you look, or what you see, on the outside. But it always shapes what you look like on the inside. Always important, and, possibly urgent. Continue reading “It Might Be Urgent …”
Is It Really Too Hot?
It’s possible that the uncomfortable position for your body to be in is actually the air-conditioned room – not the sweaty, hot outside. Yes, if you were to spend the whole day outside in 90 degree heat, you would rest often, drink lots of water, sweat, and seek shade. But you wouldn’t die. You wouldContinue reading “Is It Really Too Hot?”
