Sedentary epidemic

Sedentary life-styles of today are at epidemic levels and are contributing to many neuromusculoskeletal problems as well as a principal contributor to the highest incidence of Type 2 Diabetes and Insulin resistance in history. Where will people seek help from this epidemic?

Since my formal studies in Chiropractic my passion has been to study healthy living and live the principles I learn. This passion has revealed an endless number of life changing truths to me.

Metabolism in Weight Management

Diets create a lose / lose scenario where the glass is constantly seen as half full, of being denied things. When we replace the word Energy in weight management, meaning Energy Management, we are now dealing with a win / win scenario where the glass now becomes half full. Now the goal becomes focused on filling the energy glass vs. constantly trying to empty the glass full of fat. A Radical change in thinking, I will admit to that, but…

Life Coaching – Emotions and Positive Psychology

The root word of ‘Emotion’ comes from e-movere, or to move. A depressed person is predisposed to inaction; a joyful person wants to embrace what is there. Knowing the patterns of our emotions and where they dispose us to go becomes critical for change. We can describe emotions as energy in motion… e-motion. Emotions influence thought, decision making and success in life (particularly organizational life) to a far greater extent than has been previously recognized. If you liked this post,…

Life Coaching focus – Why Me?

Fact is most unfortunate things we experience could have been avoided with better preparation, with better focus or more awareness, with appropriate and timely actions. So in a way we can…
