As a human being, it is hard not to get down on yourself. Society is always telling us that someone or something else is better. It tells curvy women that the tall, thin women are the most beautiful. Society then turns around and tells the tall, thin women that they are too skinny and need to have more curves. It tells men that they have to be big, muscular, and rugged to be manly, and yet society says too big is unappealing. 

The point is, there is no pleasing society. No one is completely ideal. So let go of the image in your head that you desire to be like. It will not happen the way you want it to happen and when it doesn’t, you will constantly disappointed by yourself. That is unfair to who you were created to be. Instead look at who you are and love that. Only when you embrace who you are, can you look objectively at yourself and see areas that actually do need improvement. You can see that you do have a great smile or strong shoulders, but maybe you want to tone up your midsection. 

When you can appreciate the good things about yourself, you can focus on being happier and healthier. Exercise is meant to improve your life and self image. Start by choosing to erase the ideal image in your mind and loving the person in the mirror.

How you start your day truly effects the rest of your day. If you want health, happiness, mental alertness and clarity, energy and a positive mind-set, you have to start your day with things that will nourish your mind, body and spirit. I start my day with 5 minutes of meditation, a large glass of alkaline water with lemons, followed by an organic cup of coffee with raw organic ghee and MCT oil (nourishing and loaded with antioxidants; I only do this 3-4X per week) or grapefruit juice with raw greens, cinnamon & cayenne; then 2-3 hours later (after my morning workout), I have my first #nutrimeal shake with raw greens and raw protein added, plus my #usana customized HealthPak of vitamins. Try it for 10 days and see how your everyday life will change and improve. I Feel my best ever at 43! #lovelifeandliveit #happierandhealthier #kickstartyourday #usanalife

I feel so #grateful and #blessed today! I wake up and my wife brought my warm lemon water with cayenne to me in bed (perfect for my meditation); and then had this energizing beet, carrot, ginger, and lemon juice freshly squeezed, waiting for me when I came downstairs; not to mention a freshly squeezed greens juice for me to take to work. Nourish your body, your mind and your relationships. Cheers! #juicing #mindbody #nutritiontips #happierandhealthier

Kick-start your day with a positive mindset and healing & healing energy boost. Digestive health is extremely critical as approx. 70% of our immune system lies in our digestive tract. Cellular health is extremely critical as 100% of our body and mind relies on healthy cells. Started with warm water + fresh lemon juice and cayenne… Then fresh squeezed pineapple and veggie elixir… Later today, I have my #Usana #Nutrimeal shake with raw greens and Maca root added, and a pure green veggies juice for afternoon. So blessed to have my amazing wife to make these juices!! #blessed #grateful #greenjuice #happierandhealthier #imfit
