It’s not true of all sharks, but some must swim constantly to keep oxygen-rich water flowing over their gills. At first it sounds like such a terrible thing, never being able to stay still. The thing is, when you watch sharks they seem so peaceful while they’re swimming. They’re not thrashing or over exerting themselves unless they’re about to feast. Maybe we should follow their lead.Read More
Let me know if this sounds familiar. You come home from work ready to be active, get in a workout, or go for a run. You’re determined. The only problem is the second you walk in the door your bombarded with, “Daddy!”. Your child, or children, run to give you a hug.

People commonly opt for the all or nothing philosophy: their “diet” is perfect…until it isn’t. When we have a bad meal, it tends to snowball to a day of poor eating. That day can easily lead to the wheels completely falling off. Don't let it happen!Read More
In my experience, the simplest way to take control of time is by creating a daily “to do” list. Every morning I write down the few most important tasks needed to get done that day. Prioritize what really is most important. Try not to get overly ambitious: an over-stuffed list can be just as daunting and stressful as a scattered mind.Read More
