Let’s talk about your time and priorities, herbs and anxiety, knuckle cracking, exercise and stress, strengthening your muscles, a short video of the TBFC, and thoughts to live by.

Always, and always it’s not about you not having enough time to do all that you want to do, it’s about what you establish as your key priorities.  Think about it; you don’t have enough time to shop for groceries, but you’ll make time to stop and eat a fast food meal or buy a frozen dinner from Costco.  You don’t have enough time to exercise, but there is time for you to browse Facebook, Tik Tok and Instagram on your phone and computer.  It’s still the same 84,000 seconds a day no matter how you slice it.

One of my patients came in last week, barely looks 50, and she truly impressed me with her weekly exercise routine.  Three times a week she will do some combination of exercise bands to strengthen her arms, jump on a mini-trampoline, hula hoop, do kettle bell reps, exercycle 15 minutes, do some gardening and walk her dog twice a day. Some of this is only for 5 minutes, but she fits it in between her other activities because she wants to look and feel good and be functional for many more years to come.  Her secret?  Prioritize what is important to her and to just do it.  So can you.

It is impossible to enjoy idling thoroughly unless one has plenty of work to do. There is no fun in doing nothing when you have nothing to do. Wasting time is merely an occupation then, and a most exhausting one. Idleness, like kisses, to be sweet must be stolen.                        Jerome K. Jerome, humorist and playwright


“In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside you.”  Deepak Chopra


“The peculiar evil of silencing the expression of an opinion is, that it is robbing the human race; posterity as well as the existing generation; those who dissent from the opinion, still more than those who hold it. If the opinion is right, they are deprived of the opportunity of exchanging error for truth: if wrong, they lose, what is almost as great a benefit, the clearer perception and livelier impression of truth, produced by its collision with error.” John Stuart Mill, philosopher and economist


“Exercise needs to be part of your personal hygiene — like brushing your teeth, taking a shower, or cooking breakfast. The people who sustain their fitness for a lifetime all have this mindset in common. Exercise is a part of their life and not just something that they try to fit in when it’s convenient.” ~ Dr. Benjamin Levine
