Thought that is consuming me: Co-Morbidities and Urgency
It is my belief, that in our culture it has become so common for people to be sick with lifestyle diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes and obesity the urgency to get healthy has been lost. These problems are seen as issues to be dealt with only in the future. However, I now believe that in the wake of COVID-19, the world has been triggered to wake up to the reality that health and wellness must be a priority always. This is due to the fact that co-morbidities are now being seen as an immediate sign of having a target on your back for disease and potential death. It is my hope, that the consciousness of our communities will be changed in a very positive way. In a direction that makes healthy lifestyle choices a fundamental ingredient woven into the fabric of our society.

Show I am watching: Oprah Winfrey’s Super Soul Sunday
WOW! I am so fired up on this program created by Oprah. If you have ever wanted to get an in depth look into the world’s best thought leaders in regards to spirituality, this is a gold mine! Oprah interviews everyone from Common, Eckhart Tolle, Dr. Dean Ornish, Malcom Gladwell and so many more. My favorites so far have been Michael Singer and Michael Beckwith. I have linked the episode with Beckwith above. Take out a piece of paper and get ready to take a ton of notes!
Podcast I am recommending: Be Iconic Podcast
Last week I was a guest on the Be Iconic Podcast with host Chris Cordova. Chris is a long time friend from the Crossfit community. He owns two gyms (Escondido and Miramar locations) and has been personally competing at the highest level of physical fitness for the past 5 years. In the interview, Chris asked me about the true origin of Aligned Life Wellness, my thoughts on how to create long term sustainable health habits, and my plan for the future of the company. He also talked to me about my mindset during the most challenging time of my life in dealing with a massive disc herniation, chronic pain and eventual spinal surgery. To get a real, unfiltered sense of who I am, my beliefs, values and aspirations please give this episode a listen (click the link above)!
Have a kick ass week everyone!
