Just Because Your Ego is Talking Doesn’t Mean You Have to Listen

It’s been awhile since I’ve stepped into a Yoga studio to practice. I’ve been teaching for a year now and have only done my own personal practice at home or watched videos on YogoGlo, but I have recently been wanting to be back into a studio setting. Today I went to a studio that I had never been to before. I didn’t know any of the teachers or students. I was an unfamiliar face and I liked it that way. I knew that, before I even stepped into the studio, that my mind would be comparing my teaching abilities with…

The Pros and Cons of Living on a Boat

If you would have asked me a month ago where I thought I’d be living by now, I would have never said “a boat”. I am lucky enough to have gotten the opportunity to experience the boat life and, although I was unsure at first, I love it. Living on a boat may sound like upgraded camping, and it kinda is, it has its pros and cons. You know… just in case you were considering. 😉 PRO: Waking up on the water, especially if it’s early enough when the water is still calm and the sun is just beginning to…

Home Is Where the Heart Is

We’ve all said it at some point or have heard someone say it, “home is where the heart is” but have we ever really thought about what that means? I started thinking about it when I saw a sign that had the catchy little quote written over somebody’s door and after spending the summer not having a permanent living space, I really started to think about where home really is… and home IS where the heart is of course. Our hearts sit inside our chests, in our bodies and that truly is where home is. I’ve realized over the last few…

Stop Working Now

By: Michael R. Mantell, Ph.D. The other day after a terrific workout, I was leaving the gym and a friend offered the standard, “Hey, have a great day at work!” Much to his surprise, I responded as I often do to that type of comment, “Oh, I don’t work anymore.” “WHAT!!! You retired?” he shouted.  “No of course not, but I don’t work—what I do is sheer joy and pleasure.”  He looked at me like I was nuts. I looked back at him and suggested he try not working and finding joy and pleasure in his daily activities. He looked…

Merry and Happy Mean Just That

By Michael R. Mantell, Ph.D. This won’t be another “how to deal with holiday stress” article.  Why? Because, there is no such thing as “holiday stress.” So avoid those articles that start, “The holidays are a stressful time for many.” The only people who feel stress at this, or any, time of the year, are those who CREATE it by the way they THINK about the themselves, others, and their life–past, present and future—in horror-filled, negative, ways. They usually fill their brains with words like, “this is awful,” “it’s terrible,” “it was catastrophic,” “I can’t stand it,” “it should be…

Who is it Really About?

Last weekend I attended the Perform Better Fitness Conference in Long Beach California. It’s a 3-day event featuring awesome speakers well known in the sports & fitness industries. Half the day is lecture the other half is hands on. There are four classes to choose from every hour… it’s like Disneyland for personal trainers. So you can imagine 800-900 fitness “professionals” scattered about in a convention hall. Talk about fit bodies every where, all wearing the top of the line fitness apparel, carrying around water bottles and their protein bars… you know… for that “just in case” snack. Every single…
