Live Longer By Doing This…

This month I had the honor of having another one of my articles published in The Meadows Community Newspaper. Even though you may have read it already, I thought it'd be good to share it. If you were to make one thing a fitness goal for this new year, I'd encourage you to make it be to get more movement.

Here it is typed out (with links) in case you can't read the...

This Stops Viral Replication Inside Cells

A few months ago, a M.D. friend of mine convinced me to get a blood test to measure my levels of vitamins and minerals. Everything was normal except my Zinc level. It was drastically low. I immediately began loading up on Zinc and I am so thankful that I did. So much of what I'm reading now is praising Zinc for its radical virus destroying properties.

Did you know that studies are showing that those with lower Zinc levels are...

My COVID-19 Game Plan

Over Christmas I got to spend time with my son, see some friends, talk to family, have Christmas worship on Siesta Key Beach, and put up my first tree. It was great!!

One thing that was REALLY different about this year though was that for the first time in 38 years I did not see my parents on Christmas. That's because they both tested positive for COVID-19 on December 23rd. Darn Communist Party Virus! Thankfully they are both recovering well and...

Why You Think the Way You Think

I just watched a really neat clip of a TEDx Talk and I think you will find it interesting. It's about how our brains form connections. I heard this same doctor explain this in a documentary when I was in my early 20's and it really impacted me.

He explains how these connections determine how we think, what we feel and what we know. He also explains the process of forming new connections so that thoughts, emotions and subsequent behaviors can improve. I...

7 Ways To Improve Habits By Training Your Brain

Strategy 1. Boost serotonin naturally.

When serotonin levels are low, the ACG and basal ganglia tend to be more active, which can inhibit change and contribute to inflexibility and getting stuck on negative thoughts or negative behaviors. To help calm these areas of the brain, increase serotonin. When you feel stuck in a rut:

  • Exercise
  • Try bright light exposure (studies show it increases cognitive flexibility)
  • Eat tryptophan-containing foods (such as eggs, turkey, seafood, chickpeas, nuts...

Science Gone Wild

Hey my friend! I hope you're having a great Sunday!

Sorry I missed you last week. I was just getting back from a trip to Columbus Ohio (Brrrrr!) where I got to spend some time at Physicians Fitness, shadowing and being worked on by a man who is truly at the cutting edge of our industry. Not only was it eye opening to watch him work with his clients, but I also had a pretty eye opening experience of my own.

On day one... Read more

The Science of Gratitude

n 1620, when the Pilgrims came to America in search of a land where they could freely worship God, they probably never imagined that 400 years later we'd still be carrying on a tradition that they began the following year. As history tells it, the Pilgrims were so thankful for their very prosperous harvest in the autumn of 1621, that they celebrated for 3 days and gave bountiful thanks to God. This became known as the first Thanksgiving.

In 1863,...

Are You Proactive or Reactive?

In the late 1980’s a groundbreaking personal development book called “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” was published by Dr. Stephen Covey. When it was released, no one could have predicted the massive success it would have. In addition to selling millions of books, it catapulted Covey into a position of influence that was truly astounding. He was named one of the top 25 most influential Americans and his book was named one of the top 10 most influential books.

The first...

I Got Angry When I Heard This On TV…

Sorry about my less than positive title today, but I heard something on a TV commercial this week that instantly made me very mad inside. And it wasn't even political!!

The commercial was for the synthetic drug called Advil. I'm sure you've heard of it. In the commercial there were older people doing intense physical activities and the voiceover was describing how muscle and joint pains often keep us from doing things. At the end they gave this tagline that infuriated me...
