Stress: Don’t Let It Beat You or Beat You Up

April 20, 2022

I must confess, it’s been a super difficult last few months. And I’ve literally manifested physical ailments due to STRESS. I’ve never had a bad neck (weak shoulders, ha, sure) but for a few weeks now, I can barely turn my head side to side.

Blessings: Turning Stress Into Positive Self-Talk

April 04, 2022

I’m bringing you along on this very personal self-reflection in hopes that maybe you can have an epiphany like I’m having.

Someone once told me that I needed to stop looking up waiting for fireworks to happen above me, and to start appreciating the sparklers happening around me every day.

We’re often so busy stressing about the future or dwelling on the past that we rarely have time to reflect on the moment and be truly present. Take stock of where we’re at.

December 20, 2021

I’ve been hearing more and more lately about the importance of maintaining cognitive health and I’m sure you’re hearing the same thing. So, it’s probably a good idea to delve into exactly what the term means and why it is getting so much attention today.

A simple definition of cognitive health is the ability to think clearly, learn new things and then remember what we learn. This could be simple activities like getting dressed in the morning to complex tasks like learning to fly a plane. To do these things we need to be able to focus, concentrate and make decisions in a world where there are increasingly many new stressors and distractions.

How Bad Do You Want It?

August 16, 2021 1 Comment

We are all granted the same 24 hours, 1440 minutes, 86,400 seconds in our day. What we choose to do — and not do — comes down to what we value, and what we don’t.

Talk is cheap. Everyone can talk about doing something. Some can follow up with action. Few are consistent enough to see success.

Every day we are faced with thousands of choices — opportunities that test our will and guide us to success or failure. The cumulation of these choices defines where you are today. The self-reflecting question we ask ourselves at work: “What Drives You?”

You're Too Old For That: Age and Fitness Levels

February 27, 2020

When I was 5 years old I remember the utter disappointment I felt as my parents told me I was too young to join my older brother and his friends at the arcade. Now, in my 30’s, I am no longer hearing I am too young for that but get this: I’m now “too old” for that. Get out of here!! I’m a firm believer that people who lack the will or bravery to do something themselves are on a mission to sabotage the aspirations of others.

BUT, the physical effects of aging can be fought off with proper nutrition, supplementation, and generally staying active. AND, the mental idea of aging is absolutely controlled by you.

Countless men and women before us have done just that:
