courageous discipline to find a job
Sold your soul (again!)? Call it what you want, but you know the feeling. You’ve been at your job for over five years and you’re stuck. It’s all you talk about—how you’re uninspired, how your talents aren’t appreciated, how you feel invisible …. But talk is cheap, and if you don’t step up and do something about it (updating your resume, finding a career coach or learning new skills) you will stay stuck for a long time. When you find yourself stuck in an unrewarding job doing thankless work, how do you move forward? Can you identify the obstacles that keep...

nurture yourself and care for your family
I recently traveled through Costa Rica, a small Central American country where peace of mind is a natural commodity. Visiting felt like a breath of fresh air with the slow pace of living and ecological mindfulness. The country has no need for a military presence and family life is a top priority. Meanwhile, high unemployment in the US continues to contribute to family stress. Boomers who have lost retirement funds are worried about their future. Millennials are moving back in with their parents.  Those parents are also caring for their aging parents.  As you face your challenges head-on, try to delay...
sports training through core strengthening
Core strengthening is vital for improved athletic performance. If you're throwing a football or baseball, kicking a soccer ball, swinging a bat or winding up for a slap shot, you need a strong core.

Many athletes experience pain and injury from overused limbs. Hyperextension and excessive rotation in the shoulder...
sandals bad for the feet

This can be bad for our feet for several different reasons. People that suffer from plantar fasciitis should not be wearing sandals unless they have some type of arch support. Even with an arch support, sandals should not be worn for long distance walking. Unsupportive or flat sandals can even cause plantar fasciitis, which is a very painful condition on the bottom of the foot. Research has proven that our toes try...
excercises to improve posture from sitting too long
Summer fun has ended and it is time to get back in gear for the start of the new school year! A little tip to remember when getting back to school is to watch your posture. Prolonged sitting in uncomfortable desks is something that students have not done all summer and now they will begin to sit for hours each day. It is important to try to maintain proper posture while sitting in class to avoid muscle fatigue and research even shows it even improves concentration. My little brother will be a junior this year and has told me that he...
