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!

  • Staying Focused For Better Outcomes

    As you may know there are only a few weeks until the American Birkiebeiner, North America's largest Cross country ski race located in Hayward Wisconsin.

  • Singles are better than homeruns

    Last night the boys and I watched the homerun derby and we loved every monster shot by some of the biggest  youngest strongest stars  of baseball like Prince Fielder  and Joe Mauer.  Prince won the competition going away and he hit one over 500 feet.  He swings so hard I feel he's going  to c
  • You are not alone, part two.

    I'm sure many people out east felt quite alone with Hurricane Irene slamming North Carolina, the Jersey shore and Vermont really got the flooding. No electricity means no computer, no lights, no fridge, no nothing. To me it would mean no distractions. I'd have to actually deal with the moment as
  • Would you do this for your spouse?

    Anyone who has been or is in marriage and has kids understands the complexities of what a marriage can bring both good and bad. What can complicate things even more is if one spouse isn't healthy and isn't getting the support that they need at home. This is an unfortunate but common thing that I s
  • How do you think your Brain health is?

    If you have Fatigue, depression, or gasto-intestinal issues then you likely do not have the best brain function you should have. Fatigue is never a good sign for brain function since it means you are not getting enough glucose to the brain and oxygen to the brain. Remember the brain needs t
