5 Simple Tips That Will Help You Create an Exercise Habit

By | Exercise and Workouts

A recent study concluded that inactivity can be attributed to 5.3 million premature deaths worldwide, which is a similar number to that of smoking. Death is one of the many downsides of not moving while the upsides are too many to count. The fact that exercise is good for you is news to no one. The benefits of exercise are so widely touted it’s a wonder why more don’t do it with regularity. But despite the obvious upsides of exercise,…

Cast Iron Fish: Halibut Edition

Cast Iron Fish: Halibut Edition

By | Nutrition, Cooking, and Recipes

If you had nothing but a fish, a fire, and a cast iron pan, you could make some wonderful things happen. Here, we’re going to learn those things. (And you’ll leave with a skill that will be very useful during your next backwoods adventure). While this recipe is a bit further along than just iron and fish (we’re going to use lemon, butter, and thyme), the essence stays the same — you could cook this dish over an open campfire with any whitefish you choose — trout, tilapia, bass, cod, or…

She’s also won gold at six out of eight World Championships (and bronze at the other two). She is also only 5’9″ and 160lbs—that’s tiny in the world of Olympic rowing. Needless to say, she knows what it takes to win. From a grittiness that came…

By | Health and Wellness

The complete integration of all aspects of ourselves is what true health is all about — i.e. a “holistic” approach. What most of us don’t understand is there are three very distinct versions of ourselves that need nurturing. The vast majority of us are familiar with the concept of mind/body/spirit, but it is safe to say our understanding of the function of each is probably lacking.

By | Self-Improvement

All around the world, people are working longer hours and drowning in the quicksand of ever-expanding task lists. And somehow they still feel guilty when they take time for themselves. It’s madness — and it probably feels like madness for those in the middle of it, too. Admit it, you know what I mean. You work harder and harder each year and yet it feels like you’re not getting closer to those big goals that you set yourself. After a…

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.
We believe excellence is a habit.
