Why You Should Try My Eating-for-the-Seasons Challenge

By | Nutrition, Cooking, and Recipes

Today we’re going to talk about “eating for the seasons.” What does that even mean? In our modern world, we have access to all sorts of fruits and vegetables all year round. But is this the right way to eat? Sure, we can eat exotic foods whenever we want, but is there value in only eating foods that are in season and local? The answer is yes. Watch the video to find out why and learn more about the unique…


How to Live to 100: Pick a Goal and Get After It

By | Exercise and Workouts

How many of you were athletes as a younger person? I know I was. I played all different sports, but settled into being a full-time football player by high school.

Cure Your Chronic Desk Slouch: Thoracic Spine Mobilization

By | Mobility and Yoga

This stretch is what’s called a “thoracic spine mobilization.” Because many of us spend our days at our desks, our bodies become good at being hunched forward, so an exercise like the one demonstrated in this video can help to reverse that chronic desk-jockey position and release tension and pain from your upper back. You will need one tool for this stretch. I use an average-size foam roller, but you can use a smaller or larger one or even just…

The 7 Daily Habits

What We Believe

We must do certain things simply to sustain our lives. We eat, sleep, move, and we connect. These are not habits: They are required. Without them, we wouldn’t live. While these activities determine whether we live, our habits surrounding them determine how well we live and the quality of our lives.
