Zoom I am teaching: Creating Space To Thrive: The Mind
Each year I create a theme for the Aligned Life Community.  My goal is to help you focus on making each successive year the healthiest yet.  This year our focus will be on creating space to thrive.  Each quarter we will dive into a different space of our lives in which we need to bring intention and energy.  The first quarter space will be in the mind.  Developing a compelling vision of our future to give us motivation, setting boundaries, creating goals, identifying priorities and other key topics will be reviewed.  To kick start this theme and to create a forum for discussion I will be hosting a free zoom introducing these thoughts on Tuesday, January 17th at 6 pm.  If you are interested there is a signup sheet at the front desk or you can email the team at alignedlifewell@gmail.com and we will share the webinar link with you.  My hope is to inspire and direct you toward a tremendous 2023!

Television program I am recommending: Limitless with Chris Hemsworth
Have you ever watched the Marvel superhero movies?  Do you like the character Thor?  If so, you will love the new show I am watching called Limitless on Disney Plus.  Chris Hemsworth, the actor who plays the part of Thor, goes on a journey to try to find strategies that will help him live a better, longer life.  In this six-part documentary-style show Hemsworth, with the help of a number of experts, discuss stress management, muscular strength, hot and cold exposure, fasting, memory, and acceptance of death.  I found this program to be very entertaining, informative, and inspiring.  This could be just the motivation you need to get your year and your health on track!

Quote I am loving: “Live every day to the fullest” ~ Chris Hemsworth in Limitless
In the final episode of the aforementioned tv show, Hemsworth is challenged to look at the topic of dying and death.  His goal is to be able to find acceptance for this natural life process and then use that perspective in his daily life.  On his journey through this six-episode show, Hemsworth is made aware that he has a strong genetic predisposition toward Alzheimer’s disease.  After the tv program had completed filming, Hemsworth announced that he was going to take some time away from acting.  I believe that he was given a chance to reprioritize his life and accordingly decided to focus on spending time with his family and friends.  I believe that we too often assume that we will be around for many years to come.  To avoid falling into this trap, this year I challenge you to live your life as if you were going to die on Dec 31st, 2023.  This approach may help you to find more love, passion, and excitement every day!

Have a kick ass week everyone!
