What if the tee shirt read: I Am Active?


Supposing you’re an adult and you have a functional body where you can walk, bend, reach, etc.

Don’t quit is so cliche’

Sanibel sunset
While watching the Sanibel sunset, i did a 180 and saw this.

Don’t quit.

Good luck with that.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.


These seven universally apply to any type of exercise

World class wellness tips on napkin
A simple, profound list.


These seven universally apply to any type of exercise:

  1. Anaerobic/Endurance
  2. Aerobic/Strength
  3. Core
  4. Flexibility
  5. Diet
  6. Rest
  7. Motivation/Goals

Improve one, they all improve. Neglect one, they all suffer.

Then compound the effects either way when two, three or four are improved or suffer.

Ignoring this does not negate it’s truth.

At their core, exercise, proper nutrition, and adequate rest – these things make perfect sense.

Why neglect them as if they don’t exist?
