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!

  • 17 inches of snow and out of the comfort zone we go.

    It finally hit us, the 3rd largest snow fall ever in the month of December.  It was really fun watching the snow just keep coming and coming.  I felt like a kid again until I had to adventure out and get the snow blowing done.  That didn't last long as I broke the belt  ont he blower.  My neigh
  • More than just adjusting backs.

    In my 26 years of being a Chiropractor I've seen a lot of different trends and in health I'm wandering if as a society we are any healthier?  One of the reasons I've been working my tail off attending many seminars focused on metabolic(how your organs are working), and neurological(how your brain a
  • The best week of the year is here.

    Why would this be the best week of the year you may think? It's the American Birkebeiner this saturday. The 40th one to be exact. People come from all over the world to tiny Hayward Wisconsin to ski in this world loppet event. For me this is my 20th Birkebeiner and I'm officially a member of t
  • This will leave you inspired

    I went down and watched the finish of the Twin Cities Marathon yesterday and man was that inspiring.  I parked my car 3/4 of a mile away and you could already hear the screaming, music, and noise, noise, noise.  My heart rate kept increasing as I got closer to the finish line.  You could see runn

    Spring has finally sprung and it is here to stay. It's nice to be able to get outside and get some great work outs in. Mike Colaizy and I were doing intervals last week with the high school track team. We didn't finish last which isn't to bad for a couple of guys 49 and 61. We did a 400m run wi
