Hello there!

Here is your weekly dose of Well-Being tidbits to help you live just a little better!

Something to Consider:

“No man stands so tall as when he stoops to help a child.” – Abraham Lincoln

Something that is Popular… and Useful!

You’ve probably seen them around, either in person or on the internet. They used to be seen in movies that took place in Norway or Sweden, or maybe even in your parents basement. I’m talking about saunas and they are mainstream, more popular than ever, and have research supporting their use! If you find reading journals boring, check out this quick 5min video!

This is something I’ve been looking at for a while now, and while they aren’t cheap, they really aren’t expensive either. If you want to learn a bit more, I’ll do some deep diving and share my results in this newsletter. If you are a keener, you can buy them at Livingstone Outdoors.

Something you Really Should Do:

Self-care is important, we all know that. But… it takes time, and who has time? What if you could do a simple routine in just a few minutes a day to prime your joints, your fascia, your circulation, and even your breathing? Would that be worth exploring? It better be, because it doesn’t get more simple than doing this one routine!

Something for those Nasty Knots:

This handy-dandy tool is called the “Peanut” and while it looks harmless, it can be the best tool for fascia knots. The big benefit this has over just a tennis ball is that it can be placed on either side of the spine. This lets you target both sides without having to balance your weight on a round ball of hurt. Pro Tip: These suckers are perfect for the base of the head when you have a headache!

Something for the Adventurous:

You may have seen that I spent some time in Charlotte, NC (Check the blog!) and enjoyed some amazing smoked cocktails! Thanks to a friend (cough cough… Glen) I decided to order a cocktail smoked online. You really can order anything on Amazon (seriously! Check it out here!) Some people will argue that alcohol isn’t healthy I will always argue that there is more to health than just government guidelines.

Enjoying a social drink and experiencing something new and interesting should be a core concept of wellbeing! And while I don’t condone getting blitzed on alcohol, I will say that life is too short to not have fun.

If you want something a little more fun and eclectic, you can check out the Random Podcast I did with Quentin, the Barber Philosopher. As always, it’s interesting to see what 2 Gen X’ers have to say in this Millenial World.

And of course, if you have feedback, requests, or questions, send me a message on Facebook.

Have a great weekend, and just work on being a little bit better.
