Think Well

The food we eat and the amount of exercise we perform are the first things we think of when we think of health and wellness. While they are critical components to living well, I believe how you think is much more important. Few people realize, like the foods we put in our mouths, we can…

Respecting The Positions of Others

Last week, the title of my article (blog) was You Do Your Thing… I’ll Do Mine. I was basically suggesting not imposing your will upon others to adapt to the beliefs you have. In turn, those others should do the same. It would reduce the tension, anger, and violence. You may think what someone else is…

You Do Your Thing…I’ll Do Mine

These are turbulent times! The divisiveness is so palpable, and with it comes anger, hostility, frustration, and violence. I’m guessing humans have disagreed since the beginning of time, so having opposing viewpoints should not be surprising to anyone. What has surprised me more and more lately is the desire people have to impose their views…

Wellness Is Not AN Act

Healthy living is often broken down into pieces. You read and hear of different fad diets, trendy exercises, and the next “new” idea. You can read a whole book on a particular way of eating, a specific workout, or some other specific thing aimed at leading you to optimal health. Many of these ideas and…

Honesty: The Best Policy

We often refer to people as being sick or being well. The truth is that there is a large spectrum between those two qualifiers.

New COVID-19 Cases NOT Surprising

Unfortunately, information surrounding the coronavirus is getting more confusing, not less. There is still so much misinformation, uncertainty, and people speaking as if they know so much, but don’t.  While the unknowns can be unnerving and scary, what we do know should put most people at ease. If you could respond to that statement, you…

Stay Healthy?

Most people are interested in their health. This statement requires some clarification. I think it’s safe to say that a majority of Americans place very little emphasis on true optimization of their bodies, but do have interest in avoiding pain and being able to get through the day. I believe a large percentage of our…

Beyond Just Repairing

When people get sick, they want to get back to feeling good again. When people have troubles in their relationships, they want to repair it so things can be like they used to be. And when people run into financial difficulties, they just want to be able to pay their bills. Essentially, when things get…
