How Awe Can Save You From Yourself

“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.” ― W.B. Yeats As we head into summer, vacations and roadtrips where we’re able to lose ourselves for a few days at a time, how can we bottle some of that ahhhh to bring back home with us to get us to the next break?...

Thank You 4 R Freedom!

I had such an amazing few days away in the woods with a fabulous group of friends. As it goes, we spent the weekend full of fun and sun, and more fun, hardly stopping to reflect on the meaning of Memorial Day. Today, as we drove home, I saw this sign (above) and was reminded of all those who sacrifice... Read More

My brother is in town for Fleet Week, so vlogs might be my jam for the rest of the week as I’ll be playing tourist with him in midtown for the next two days.

I had been sentenced to death. For a speeding ticket, poorly defended. I hadn’t taken it seriously, and... Read More

The Passion Police: You have no right to remain bored

Still one of the most consistent questions I get in my practice is: Can you help me find my passion? “Find my passion” is such a misnomer. We don’t ever find passion as if it were ever lost, instead, we evolve into it. The other misconception is that we’ll finally be motivated once we figure it out. Yet, if we... Read More

Just last month I wrote about Why Less is Adding Up to Be Awesome, my new only moderately intense workout plan that I’ve been looking forward to sharing more with you. For years I’ve been pounding away with bootcamp classes, endurance training, heavy lifting and plyos upon plyos with no real end in sight. I’d always joke, “I work out... Read More
