It’s easy to get caught up in the moment when things are not going the way you would like them to. Problem areas are always more visible than what is actually working. We get more attached to the problems because they are at odds with what we intended. When we intend for something to go a certain way and the result is less than desirable, it doesn’t feel good. When … Read More

I am easily distracted. There have been times I self-diagnosed ADD. The problem is that we live in a world with no shortage of distractions. There is more than just something for everybody, there are dozens of somethings. To make it worse, I love technology.

Office Workout of the Day - OWOD

Since I was a teen I have always cared about fitness. Over the years, my level of motivation has changed as I have aged and entered into new life chapters. After I turned thirty, I started to realize that I need to stay more on top of how I take care of my body. Over the last five years, I have battled with acid reflux and an underactive thyroid.
