Run you fools! I don't see anyone running or exercising at all. You do not need a gym membership to use your body in a effective way, or to exercise it. I am also of the opinion that gyms are detrimental, or just non-effective, for most people. Being high pressure and often full of drugs. Go natural! So many of us, mostly males do this, just buy some cheap weight-lifting equipment and try some curls once in a while. This is not enough. Squats are far more useful in the long run and a better whole body exercise anyways...
But cardio -Whatever your flavor- will pay dividends in the long run. Overall health is really what matters the most, and cardio-respiratory is the most beneficial if your only have time for one type of exercise. By all means diversify. But do something!
I whole-heartily endorse running. Unless otherwise indicated by your health care provider or personal situation. So get out and do something. Run, bike, swim or just play. No matter what- bring your A-game and make it count.

Message From The Hopi Elders

"To my fellow swimmers:

The river is flowing now very fast.
It is so great and swift, that there are those who will be afraid.
They will try to hold onto the shore.
They are being torn apart and will suffer greatly.
Know that the river has it's destination.
We must let go of the shore, push off inti the river, keep our heads above water.
At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally, least of all ourselves,
For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey come to a halt.
The time of the lone wolf is over.
Gather yourselves. Banish the word struggle from your attitude and vocabulary.
All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.
We are the ones we have been waiting for."

Clean Drinking Water

Water consumption, in proper quantities, is one of the simplest ways to live a healthful and energetic life. It is also one of the most over looked. A lot of professionals have made statements over the last few years that sodas, teas and other such processed drinks provide hydration and nourishment. Not true, entirely... Although several main stream products may provide a quality level of hydration, they are often detrimental in doing so.

How can they offer quality hydration and be detrimental? Simply by the ingredients they contain; salt, processed sugars/high fructose corn syrup, low quality minerals&vitamins. Adding any additional factors to a drink asks more of your body to make use of it. Or to simply pass it. Sugars, food dyes, caffeine, and even minerals/vitamins require the body to use digestive co-factors and enzymes to pass them. The body does such with all intake, the difference being absorbed or passed. So the body wastes the water passing the junk and not getting hydrated. This can be expensive, in the sense that the body gets to use very little of your food as food- it must use it to process toxins. How about minerals&vitamins? Almost all are of extraordinarily low quality. These companies, read all, know you are looking for your nutrients, they know you are a informed consumer, they know you will pay more. The nutrients they include are junk. Often derived from rocks, yes rocks. The difference being that your body cannot digest rocks. Pass yes, digest no. So although they do provide liquid, and there-by hydration, such drinks are harmful because they must make the body work extra to pass them. Often this can even result in greater thirst due dehydration from sodium intake, high digestive effort, and this simple fact that caffeine is a uretic. Also, cheap vitamins/minerals require mineral co-factors to even be passed, the body gets these by leaching them from the gut wall and bone tissue. Now I keep saying "passed or pass". Yes, that means waste, gone down the hole. Along with the extra money you spent to get the better product.

Bio availability is key. When you ingest these junk products you body gets nothing and has to expend resources to pass them. Conclusion: They do more harm then good.

What about water? Clean, unsalted, dye-free, flavor-free, no added nothing. Allow your body to have simple water and it will do it's job quite well. 3 to 5 liters a-day is plenty. Do not drink this all at one time, of course. Any consumption should be spread out through the course of the day, as best suits your lifestyle. Extra exercise will increase demand on the body, and there-by require greater resources to perform the tasks you ask of it.
Be good to yourself...

The New Year

Well, we've made it. At least for now. This last year has been one of my hardest and yet one of most fruitful on a personal level. On a fianancial and professional level I found my efforts lacking. Hate to admit it but I missed a lot of stellar opportunities. Let it be said that this has only galvanized me in way I never have been before.

10 things that served me well this year;

1 Drinking no less than 3 liters of water a day.
2 Having at least one cup of organic Green Tea a day.
3 Running a mile, really running-not jogging.
4 Learning to be well mannered at all times; not being reactive to others.
5 Being really completely sober.
6 Taking all the best supplements, not being cheap with my health.
7 Making time to workout, everyday. Everyday.
8 Streaching more, and more often.
9 Abiding by my Metabolic type diet; i.e. taking my own advice.
10. Being gentle with myself and others.

Now I made some mistakes. I had some stellar wins too. Consider my advice and take your own as well. Trust yourself a little more, your body and mind are good at their job You just have to feed them quality fuel and use them wisely.
Be good to yourself and others this year. Remember, they'er not as smart as you think
you are...
