How to break old food habits so you can feel your best

A few months ago, I ran a little experiment on myself. A hunger experiment. That sounds terrible, I know.

I get this question a lot: “What’s ONE thing I can do to be healthier/lose weight/have more energy?”. We all want a quick fix – a simple way to “make it all better.” Most health professionals would tell you that there’s not one, magical thing. And they’d be right… sort of. There IS one thing […]

How to be more productive by doing nothing

Pause. That’s right. Just PAUSE. Look away from the screen. Take a deep breath. Try to empty your mind. (Or at least let go of any thoughts that float by. ‘Cause they will.) Hold the breath, just for few seconds. Annndddd… let it all out. (Go ahead. Give it a shot. I’ll wait.) What happened […]

How to make every day a celebration

Imagine a place where a group of people – thrilled to see you – offer their hands for high-5’s as you walk through the door. Now, stick with me, ‘cause what I’m about to say may sound a little crazy: What if you high-5’d a stranger? Every day. You’re walking down the street, feeling good. […]
