How to evolve/grow into a healthier human...

1. Be open. No matter what you think, you don't know everything. In fact, your beliefs about your life, your healthy, your nutrition, your work, your relationships, etc. may be hurting you more than helping you. Personally, I have held many beliefs that later screwed me up. Luckily, I was open for change. Be open to new information, it may direct you to a better path.

2. Nourish yourself. For you to be able to evolve and grow, in a world of craziness, you need to be properly fueled. I can't tell you how many people are now able to make the BIG decisions in their life, now that the have adequate energy to think, feel and sleep. When your body is under fueled you remain in a state of survival, unable to take on new experiences, ideas and challenges. Fuel your body with nutritionally filled sugars, adequate protein and healthy saturated fats. Once your body has adequate energy and nutrition, your entire world will begin to OPEN up.

3. Move. Your body loves to move. In fact, movement not only improves blood flow, muscle development, digestion, hormone balance and energy level, it also improves brain function and overall nerves system function. Remember there is also a balance in movement, too much of a good thing can become a bad thing.

4. Conscious Thinking. Most of what we do in life is performed unconsciously--we don't really think about what we are doing, we just do it. It's our habits that take us through our day. For you to change, you have to bring your thoughts back to a conscious level. If you choose to not think about what you want to change, change does not occur--and you continue to fall back to your old ways.

5. Be kind. I always find it amazing how mean and critical people can be--especially on the Internet. Being mean/critical doesn't get you anywhere--in fact, it just makes you look like an ass. Being kind, understanding and empathetic will get you everywhere. It is not your responsibility to tell anyone their beliefs are wrong, because they do not match yours. If what they say, does not vibe with you, then you can either move on OR be quite, open and willing to hear what they have to say...

6. Be quiet. Listen to what others are saying, instead of talking. Sit with your thoughts and feelings in silence. Meditate. Read. Deep breathing.

7. Screw up. Yes, you have to fail to become better. Nobody is getting through life without screwing shit up at least once, maybe 100 times. In fact, those that fail the most, may be the ones that grow the most. More failures means you kept trying, you kept getting up, you kept learning and you didn't allow disappointments to get in your way--which can be REALLY hard. Every time you got up, you got a little bit stronger and a little bit wiser.
