Some of you may know that our oldest son is studying to become a commercial pilot. I bet if we asked him that question, he would nod his head and emphatically state “yes”. When flying an airplane 1 degree can mean arriving at your destination or landing in deep water. The same principle holds true in our bodies. One small adjustment to our lifestyle can make all the difference in the end. It can make the difference between just getting old or aging well.

Your nerve system is responsible for EVERYTHING in your body. Nothing, really, absolutely nothing, takes place in your body without your nerve system taking part in it. Making sure it is firing the way it should is of prime importance.
EAT REAL FOOD
Read the labels on the things you buy. If you don’t understand what it says, or there are oodles of ingredients in it, or it can stay in your pantry for years, PUT IT BACK ON THE SHELF. Let the grocery store, store it for you, till you really need it 😉

Your body was meant for movement. It isn’t meant to sit in a c-shape reading a screen. It was meant to be used physically. There are lots of simple things to do, park furthest away from the door, do sit-ups and push-ups when you wake up, or on commercial breaks, sign up for a race, a smart marketer once coined the term “Just do It”.
Thoughts become real. If you dwell on unhappy things, they soon can overtake you. You can think yourself into despair or think yourself toward the light.

Believe me, if the world falls apart or comes together, someone will tell you.
