Death Isn’t Easy But Living With Our Flaws Can Be Even Harder

Death and loss have been front and center lately.

Michael’s father passed away 2 years ago. I lost my father one year ago this past February. My mother passed away just a little over a month ago.

Feel The Fear And Do It Anyway

A grandfather is talking with his grandson and he says, "There are two wolves inside of us which are always at war with each other.

One of them is a good wolf which represents things like kindness, bravery, and love. The other is a bad wolf, which represents things like greed, hatred, and fear."

Are You A Real Man? Maybe... Maybe Not.

In participating in different men’s groups I get to see and experience men being men. Fighting, arguing, posturing, uplifting and supporting each other. 

One aspect of working with men and being around men in this way has illustrated a common question. 

How To Be A Balanced And Healthy Man

While food and exercise are important to us, it is by no means the only area we focus on. For us “health and wellness” incorporates all aspects of life.

We don’t care if you’re eating kale and lifting heavy things all day long, if you aren’t striving to be a well-rounded human, then the picture isn’t complete, and your life can suffer as a result.

End of story.

Being a healthy-balanced man means:

Excessively Tired All The Time? You May Have Adrenal Fatigue!

We live in a fast-paced, high stressed society, there is no denying that. Many of us are depleted and stressed out. Unfortunately, this has become a standard way of living.

So until you are able to take a year off and do nothing but spa treatments, swap out that evil boss of yours, sleep for 10 hours a day, meditate like a monk in the hills and just let it all go, you may want to give your adrenal glands some rest and support.

The Benefits Of Not Eating. Have You Experienced Fasting?

At this point in time I’m pretty sure you’ve heard of fasting. Perhaps you’ve even already experimented with it. 

Fasting is not the latest trend in health and wellness. It has been around for as long as man himself. Whether via a lack of food being available, for religious reasons, or more commonly in our modern day, for health reasons, we’ve been fasting for a long time. 

You Should Rethink Having Breakfast.

know that the title of this article may make some dietitians and nutritionist cringe at the very thought of their clients skipping out on the most universal and trusted “theory” in nutrition for the last century. I can hear you saying, “With all of the debate and confusion in nutrition please can’t we just agree on breakfast being important?” Short answer: No, sorry, we can’t.

You're Leaking Energy! How To Stop The Leaks. Part 2

Last week in Part 1 of this blog I shared how I had this dream that woke me up to my “energy leaks.”

In this post we’ll talk about some of the methods you can use to start turning things around.

In the closing section of part 1 I indicated Awareness as a key first step in recognizing that leaks even exist.

To that end the first step is…

Energy leaks can leave you feeling drained and unproductive at best, and at worst they can actually harm your health. But, don’t stress because there are ways that you can fix your leaks. 

I Had A Dream

I had a very short, but impactful dream. I believe it was one of those lucid type dreams where the subconscious reaches through and sends a powerful insight.

In this dream, I found myself completely surrounded by what I can only describe as zombies. 

Want to be happier? It Always Starts With Love.

For most of us, the emotion we call love is usually best reserved for a few specific interactions. A moment between a father and his son, acknowledging the deep bonds they share. A guy and his lady looking into each other’s eyes, butterflies fluttering about in their stomachs. A group of men sitting around a fire, grateful for their friendship. All of these contribute to your sense of happiness and wellbeing.
