The key to longevity.

I think we all want to live a productive long and healthy life where we can live our dreams and help others along the way.  Somehow someway negativity can seep in to our brain and we all get stuck or in a rut or get depressed or feel we are not livng the life we had dreamt about.

I was watching a you tube viseo this past weekend called SLOWMO.  Just google it or you tube it and watch this 15 minute video.  It’s very inspiring.  In a nutshell it’s about a 69 year old Psychiatrist who quit practice 15 years ago because he was uninspired by his work even though he had made tons of money and lived a charmed life as far as physical things were concerned.   He stated he felt he was becoming an asshole and didn’t want to live another 15 years working doing something he didn’t enjoy doing.  So he started rollerblading along the beach in southern California and hasn’t stopped since.  Everyone thought he was a homelesss guy.  He’s happy, he inspires people, he lives on a little bit of nothing.  He feels connected to the source and feels connected to people and is happy.

Climbing mountains makes me happy.

Slowmo as everyone calls him had a midlife crisis or finally listened to what his heart and soul told him to do.  Do what makes you happy.

What makes you happy?

Do you do things for yourself, family and others that make you happy and inspired?

This is a good question we should all ask ourselves each and everyday.

There are days where I’m not on at the clinic, I’m not on at home, or present with my family.  It just happens.  I’d say I have many more positive good days than bad days but I try to follow my heart and soul.  I always have.  Maybe I beat to my own drum.  I don’t think I could have been good in the corporate world or have a straight 9-5 job.

Here is the You tube link to the clip slo mo. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xn87-mcnoVc

So how to you get to live to 90 and be happy?  Do what you want to!!  I love that one!!!

The spring weather is upon us.  Finally a little warmer outside where we can all enjoy the outside.   Track conference is tomorrow, we still have all the spring sports going on, it’s all good!!  If you want to watch some great track and field stop by Osceola’s new track tomorrow at 4 pm for the conference meet.

I know one thing that will make you happier.  Eating better and getting outside and moving your body.  When I’m outside working out and taking up the sun and getting a good sweat going there is nothing better. Clean the diet up and you are on your way.  Being healthy doesn’t have to be that difficult.  Follow your innate and listen to it!

    You've probably heard that Coach Jerry Kill the football coach for the University of Minnesota has been battling seizures since he had a massive one on the sidelines against New Mexico state.

    Well it was a whirlwind weekend for yours truly.  It started with the 26th annual turkey bowl.  It was our coldest turkey bowl ever.  2 degrees at the start and 4 at the finish.  It was a defensive battle and it came down to the last possession with the black team holding the red team for a 20-1
  • Homecoming 2012. Do you have a thyroid condition?

    Another busy weekend it was for me. It started out with the Osceola Chieftains going down to Somerset and taking it on the chin even though they moved the ball well you just can't have the turnovers. Then saturday was the Gopher homecoming. There was a cold drizzle in the air that turned into a c
  • Brain health for the holidays.

    I just got in from a session of interval training at Troll Hollow and it was brutal cold.  New gloves  couldn't keep my hands warm.  One reward Dave Leske and I do is get a cup of hot cocoa after stressing our body to make us faster on the x-ski's.  Boy, that tasted so good today. I heard som
