On Top Of Your Mountain!

While science is still attempting to unravel the finer mysteries of the brain... They have confirmed that the brain is a miraculous and complex organ. Your brain plays a huge role in all your daily activity. Essentially, it is responsible for sending and receiving the information that is vital to your body’s overall functions. Whether you are oblivious to all the minute details of activity going on inside your brain to ensure normal body functions or are actively thinking about your next move or action... Your brain will continue to work around the clock. Although the brain is resilient and strong, did you know that seemingly minor things can make a huge impact on your overall cognitive function? 

Sometimes we take ourselves for granted, and believe that recovery can be easily done... However it's not that simple. Missing sleep, stress, and lack of exercise can play a major role in the way that your brain operates. All of these could cause your brain to loose mental strength, seemingly to either put us in a fog or loose mental clarity. We tend to think about feeding our bodies, food to help stave off hunger, and consider vitamins, minerals, and proteins for our muscles.  Yet when it comes to food for our brains, we are like deer in headlights. Our brains need to be fed nutrients that will help it thrive and recover. What are you doing to feed your brain?

BioAgile may be the missing link to helping your brain function better. Many people are beginning to notice that certain nutrients are good for the brain. For example, Citicoline is a brain chemical that is naturally occurring throughout the body. It helps to maintain focus and concentration and support healthy memory function. BioAgile is a two ounce liquid shot of natural whole food nutrients which features Sustamine®, Wild Microalgae®, and Cognizin®, a patented, branded form of Citicoline. With BioAgile you may have found your extra EDGE for improved motor skills, problem solving and comprehension.

Fresh Foods - The Healthy Choice


Fresh Foods - The Healthy Choice

Does the thought of making a meal seem overwhelming to you? Most people tend to head for the “easy to make” ready-made prepared foods that are so common in our supermarkets. They are considered a “convenience” food for the busy parent. While our whole society has been affected by financial changes, we tend not to consider the end results.. Either by pushing both parents out the door to “earn a living”, or forcing parents to seek deep budget cuts to make ends meet. The end result is that with both parents working they will both be too tired at the end of the day to prepare a healthy meal for themselves of their children. Or with only one parent working and being on a tight budget, unhealthy choices will be made to help cut costs.

I remember when the TV dinner arrived on the scene. While we were lucky that my father made a good living and my Mother didn’t have to work… She decided to take up a career which often left her too tired to make a home cooked meal. Actually, my Mother never really liked cooking, my Father enjoyed it when he had the time. So my Mother would buy these novelty items because she could quickly heat them up in the oven and serve them for dinner. Did you ever eat one of these? They were horrible! While the picture on the box looked appetizing, the end result is some of the food was so over cooked that my siblings and I struggled to eat them. That didn’t last long, thankfully! But just the thought of eating a pre-made food, where it was typically not very nutritious makes me feel really ill even today.

Actually, cooking fresh healthy meals does not have to be complex. With all the great simple recipes easily accessible to us via social media the choices are boundless. I have two daughters and often times when they ask me to cook something different, I ask them to give me a recipe. My younger daughter will roll her eyes and tell me to just look on Pinterest. So I tell her to find a recipe she likes and send me the Pin. Really it’s as easy as that. While my younger daughter wants to eat some healthy vegetarian foods, she often looks to me to come up with a plan. Pinterest is just one of the ways you can find some great simple recipes that are healthy and don’t take a whole lot of time to cook.

Like the avocados and spinach in the picture above, some meals can be very simple. Instead of always thinking of meals that need to be complex, find some simple whole foods that are naturally healthier for you and eat those instead. For example, instead of the typical toast with jam or cream cheese… I’ve taken to making my toast with vegan butter spread and avocados in the morning for breakfast. I really enjoy avocados and can’t seem to get enough of them. So it’s a very simple breakfast that I just throw together for a quick meal. I like to round it off with a cup of coffee. That’s just one of the splurges I can’t seem to give up entirely. But that’s okay. I get the rest of my morning greens by taking my Wild New Earth Nutrients.


This is a true "Force of Nature" which I enjoy taking with my breakfast. These help me throughout the day as they aid in my digestion and my body feels better.

If healthy meals is foreign to you right now… Don’t worry, there’s hope. Take little steps to make a few changes each day... Start off with fresh fruits and vegetable - look for some all time favorites from your childhood! Then gradually add in something new. Pick a simple recipe from from my healthy board on Pinterest. Eventually, before you realize it, you’ll be on your way to feeling stronger and healthier.

Pushing Your Limits

Do you ever push yourself to do more? Or are you just giving up when you get to that “certain” level. We all want to improve our minds and bodies, to get better in whatever we are doing. Yet sometimes we seem to slow down or not move forward at all.

Whenever we are working on self-improvements, for our minds and bodies to be in the growth mode, we need to stretch ourselves just a bit more with each effort. Reaching further for our goals helps us expand beyond the limits we artificially set upon ourselves.

Limiting how much you do on a daily basis will stunt your growth. If you are holding yourself back and waiting for tomorrow. You could be setting yourself up for failure and put your mind and body into a stagnant mode. Take a moment to encourage yourself to strive just a little more - to go a little further than the limit you set.

When we push ourselves to go further, do more, be more, we move ourselves forward in growth. I’m not saying that you should go out and run a marathon if you’ve never done one before… Especially if you’re not prepared to run one. But finding your limits only happens by pushing yourself a little more beyond what you think you can do.

Decide to put a little more motion into your daily life - start your day off with some exercise or take time during the day to do something to get you physically moving. The more movement you have, the more focus your mind will become.  If you want to improve your health, you need to push yourself to do more. Make a commitment to yourself today - start by taking better care of yourself, change a few of your eating habits and push yourself to get a little more exercise.

Making Healthy Choices...

Take a Walk!

Today is dedicated to making healthy choices. I started my day with a trail walk at the WW1 Memorial Park & Zoo in North Attleboro. It's always great to get some exercise - but more fun when you find someone willing to take the challenge with you! Hiking along the trails, we maintained great conversation which made the time go a lot faster. Before I realized it, we had reached the end of our hike and both headed our own ways to move forward with our day.

I've always enjoyed getting in my exercise early, because it allows me to have that much more time to spend on the important things at work. Whether you are headed to the office on a daily basis or work from home, it's always best to start your day off right. Clear your mind, exercise a little and get some good nutrition!

Speaking of good nutrition...

Cordyceps - Fungi - Mushrooms

Did you know that Cordyceps mushrooms have been used for thousands of years and they are native to Tibet and southern China. In fact, because they were so highly prized in ancient China they were used exclusively in the Emperor’s palace! Moving forward to more recent times, Cordyceps have made international headlines... With great health benefits for our bodies, athletes have consumed these to help improve their performances. Most notably when Olympic Chinese runners attributed Cordyceps mushrooms to their world record breaking performances in 1993.

What's the difference? Cordyceps provide a wide range of chemical components and compounds that make them particularly valuable to our bodies. In particular... These amazing mushrooms are known to support heart health, maintain healthy cholesterol levels in those whose levels are already normal, and provide support to the respiratory system.

Here Are Some Fast facts:
  • Cordyceps are commonly called Caterpillar fungus, tochukas (Japanese), dong chong xia cao (Chinese: summer grass, winter worm).
  • During the Ming Dynasty, the physicians of the emperor’s court studied the Cordyceps fungus, and using their own experience and knowledge, improved its usage.
  • There are more than 680 species of Cordyceps but the most well-known is Chinese Caterpillar Fungus, Cordyceps sinensis.
  • The generic name Cordyceps is derived from the Greek word kordyle, meaning “club”, and the Latin stem -ceps, meaning “head”.

Keep It Simple & Easy...
Without a doubt, walking is a simple and easy way to start living a healthier lifestyle. The benefits you receive from walking each day are numerous! Get yourself up and moving to help increase memory, improve circulation, lift your spirit, protect from heart disease, and more. Many studies have shown that walking for just two minutes of each hour can increase your lifespan by 33%. Wow - If that gets you excited... What are you waiting for? Take advantage of the moment, with good weather, even before it warms up... Start moving towards a healthier you... Go for a walk!

Healthy Food Tip...

Eating well doesn’t have to be hard. Make simple choices to eat more fresh fruits and vegetables. Make a boring dish more interesting by selecting fresh produce.

Time to Improve Writing Skills...

Another great Monday morning! Finished an article I was writing over the time span of a couple of months, to be included in an e-book with other like minded professionals. I'm honored to be a part of something with other field experts and look forward to seeing the final production. Writing the article took longer than I expected, but really pushed me to think about what I wanted to say and how to pen it so that I made sense.

Perhaps it's better to write smaller articles more often than to write a huge one without any practice... Sure, I've run thru lots of thoughts in my mind, but these would probably seem jagged to you if I spit these thoughts out without consideration of what I was saying. So with my blog, I intend to do that... Write shorter articles that will make sense and perhaps even give something good to read...

Enjoy the week!
