What do Dwight Howard, Peyton Manning and Diana Nyad have in common?

neuroband 600Professionals and amateurs alike have discovered a new technology, Neurobands, to optimize their performance on the field and alleviate pain from current and prior injuries.

Developed with the help of a 16-member team of physicians, trainers and other specialists, Neurobands mimic contractions that stimulate neuron pathways in specific muscles so they continuously adjust muscle balance to keeping the skeleton in alignment.

Now do you believe in climate change?

fletcher 600I have started to hear it all over again. The intense and record cold weather has led ideologues on the political Right to proclaim: "You see, there is no global warming! How can there be global warming if we are freezing?"

It is almost tragic that the term "global warming" became the popular means of explaining climate change.

Still Dating My Spouse

stilldating 600As you live and breathe, how you love and feel about love is influenced by a variety of factors, including your circle of friends. As we discussed in the post, Love is a Learned Behavior, much of who you are, what you do, and what you believe in was (and is) influenced by your parents, family, friends, and any adult interactions growing up and now.

Your thoughts and actions are influenced by the circle you keep! It is so important to recognize how those in your circle are influencing your behavior toward love; whether positively or negatively they will influence you. Look at your circle of influence and access what type of influence they are depositing into your life.

Just being aware of the impact your circle has on how you love is powerful. Now don't get me wrong, you will spend time with friends and family. They will also spend time with your spouse but make sure you have a healthy balance and respect among all.
