I'm often asked what type of supplements I take. When I respond, I get a puzzled look. The truth is I don't take supplements. There are many reasons I list in this show but for the most part I don't feel I need them. And truthfully I believe we could all take less (or maybe none) if we ate a more balanced diet.

I think we're all looking for something in this life, maybe it's peace, maybe it's happiness, maybe it's fortune and fame. Regardless here we are working towards a better life, through self improvement maybe even to find a deeper purpose.

 

Marc Allen put together his new book, Tantra for the West to help us understand life on a deeper level, maybe to find that contentment (however you see it), maybe happiness or maybe just a little understanding of how to enjoy your life. Marc explains how the word Tantra is about living in the now, how to appreciate each moment and how to push aside smaller forms of energy that affect our lives so much like anger, frustration, anxiety and more.

Living healthy is hard isn't it? I'm being serious here. We all know what it's like to try, try harder, and try again and see little results.  Think about all the changes you have to make when living a healthy lifestyle. You pretty much have to turn your entire life around, some entirely change everything.

We have to change our mind set, our approach to real health instead of a fad or diet, we need to realize we're in it for the long haul and that small steps are sustainable and that anything that comes easily will likely leave just as easily.

But just because it's hard, (I'm sure we're all in agreement on this one) doesn't mean it's okay not to try, not to put your best foot forward, not to get back up each and every time you get knocked down. The truth is we have excuses.

It was an absolute pleasure having Diana Lang on show to talk about her book Opening to Meditation. We haven't actually had this topic on the show before which I feel is kind odd except that I feel that we were actually waiting for Diana's interview.

It's an absolute breath of fresh air to hear Diana's perspective and how she talks about meditation. How 5 mins a day is okay to start with, how there are many different forms of meditation and to hear the passion and enthusiasm in her voice as she explains the unending benefits that meditations has to offer.

Diana Lang is the author of Opening to Meditation and the owner and director of the Lifeworks Center for Growth in Los Angeles, where she lives. She is also active in a variety of nonprofit international efforts to teach meditation and yoga.

Sometimes I feel that dad's get a bad wrap simply because in the recent past it seems more like single mothers are more likely to raise a child. Then of course we forget about all the fathers do a great job of raising their children. You even see more and more single father's in the today's day in age.

I had some very influential men in my life growing up that helped me turn into the person I am and I have friends that are incredibly caring and loving new fathers that are going to raise the bar for the next generation of parents.

I feel like in this day in age there's a whole lot of pressure to be a parent. I truly believe we are products of our environment so will it being the norm to get married young and have children what's one to think even they aren't sure or aren't ready to be a parent.

In this day in age I believe most of us have the mind set of more. We want more things instead of considering where it will go after it breaks and how the environment will be affected. We want bigger, louder, better when we don't think about quality over quantity. What about less instead of more and keep the 'better'?

And I'm not just talking about the thing we have, I'm talking about the way we go about life. What about looking at better quality food because it will give us the energy we need, what about a quality workout which could be shorter and efficient and you could get more out of it because it represents quality not quantity?

It's hard to believe 4 years ago I came into this town I'm now living in with only a thought of running a business and looking for a way to market. It was difficult trying to get started, it seems like when you come into a small town (at least this one) many are closed off to the 'new guy'.  

As difficult as it was, I knocked on doors of gyms in the area but no one seemed interested in having me around. I found a list of health and wellness businesses in the area, called each one of them but found little interest as well. Not to be deterred, the truth is I didn't have another option, there really wasn't any turning back. If I was going to make a run at putting food on the table through my own business I had to push forward.

I knew I had to find different ways to market, so I went in the studio and presented them with an offer of trading services. This idea wasn't exactly welcomed but after I continued to persist an offer was returned to me to host a 15 minute health and wellness show.

Are you aging or evolving? Have you ever thought about it, have you thought about the difference? This all has to do with our mind set and what we accept in this life. Do we feel it's acceptable for our health to decline as we get older? Do we feel like less mobility is on the way? If we change our mind set, if we push those limiting beliefs to the side, we'll soon realize the only thing that holds us back is our mind. And we'll understand we evolve as we get older, not age.

It was an absolute pleasure having Lou on the show talking about his 4 principles. Lou really is a fountain of unending information. So much so that we actually have 20 mins of BONUS material for you! Lou has an incredible story of how he healed himself from numerous health issues in which no one had answers to. Once Lou started to clean up his life and implement what he now teaches as his 4 principles he started to naturally heal himself and get rid of all the dis-ease in his body.

Recently my email account was hacked and not only did 'I' send out many spam emails to all of my contacts but I was receiving them as well. First of all, my sincerest apologies to anyone that was contacted and may have had their day disrupted because of this.  It pretty much took up an entire day for me to fix this issue with changing passwords, apologizing and clearing up what shouldn't have come from my account.

It makes me think how vulnerable we all are. At times I feel like I live in my inbox, it's how I communicate. Email is how I talk to clients, set up interviews, have conversations with friends and family and in an instant someone or something negatively disrupted all of that.
