Video series I am publishing: 10-Steps To Lifetime Wellness
This week I began a project that I am really excited about sharing with you. After being a collegiate athlete, a chiropractor for 13 years and a certified strength and conditioning specialist I have seen a number of themes show up in regards to getting and keeping people healthy. For the past year I have been synthesizing my thoughts on the most important concepts you must understand to create lifetime wellness. For a master class on the philosophies, science and art of human health, check out (and subscribe if you would like) to my YouTube channel. I will be posting one new video each week over the next 10 weeks for you to check out. Please let me know if you have any questions after viewing the content and feel free to share them with anyone who you will feel will benefit. It is my sincere hope that these 10-Steps will radically change your life!
Book I am hearing: 12 Rules For Life by Jordan Peterson
It has been a while since I have read anything profound. However, after a string of misfires I believe I have found a winner to recommend to you. 12 Rules For Life is an extremely well written, deeply researched and artfully crafted book about Peterson’s thoughts on creating a life well lived. One of his major premises is being able to find a middle ground between chaos and organization. Peterson believes that this grey area is where people are most likely to thrive. If you have a long road trip or flight coming up this summer this may be the perfect resource to fill your time (the audio presentation is about 15 hours). Enjoy!
Quote I am loving: “Rule #1: Stand up straight with your shoulders back.” ~ Jordan Peterson in 12 Rules For Life
I began listening to Peterson’s audiobook during a run last week. When he announced that his first rule for life was, “Stand up straight with your shoulders back” I laughed out loud. Despite looking like a lunatic, this message as you might imagine given my profession, definitely resonates with me. Peterson, who is not a doctor, talks about the positive health and mental changes associated with the upright posture. Mood, confidence, cosmetics, breath, performance and many other benefits are discussed. Beyond these concepts is the ability of creating an inward sense and outward appearance of determination despite your external environment. This message, which is at the heart of living an “Aligned Life” is one of the most important lessons I hope to instill in you!
Have a kick ass week everyone!
