Living Well




I recently read this word being described as, “….having had enough of something – in a good way.”

A more textbook definition is:

  •  The fulfillment or gratification of a desire, need, or appetite.

We all desire fulfillment. Suffice it to say, living healthy, wealthy, & wise should be a priority for everyone.

But how?

“My definition of success? The more actively and practicly you are engaged, the more successful you will be” – Sir Richard Branson

Throughout my life I have met more than a few inspiring people. Many of whom, successful in their own ways, have shared their brand of what living well is. I believe the first step on this path is to find a purpose.


 I took the picture above on a particularly nice, spring afternoon. I came across the dock, stood at the end there and had my  “moment”.

And wrote this post.

Go for a nice walk and have yours.



Contrary to common belief, myself included, – labor Day is not the official end of summer. The Autumnal Equinox, which is on or near September 22nd is.

It just passed.

Personally I welcome the new colors of trees and crisp air. It signals it’s time for a change again.

The reason I point this out though, is that it seems like just yesterday, literally, we where talking of New Years Resolutions and planning new fitness goals. My how time flies.

As the chillier weather approaches it is easy to lapse into inactivity and resort to munching on fattier, tastier comfort foods. Nay I say. Many people forget that motivation that got them so psyched at the beginning of the year.

I hear people say often, “I’m so busy in the fall with the holidays and all”. But weren’t we busy all year with planning summer vacations and keeping up with the Kardashians?

Keeping up

Physical Fitness means different things to different people, however I believe one thing to be true, regular activity and exercise is not “seasonal”. Proper nutrition isn’t either. Just because summer is done doesn’t mean we need to fall of the well-being wagon, cancel the gym membership and call it a day.

In fact, it is exercise that will help you get through those hectic months a more stronger, healthier, and happier individual.

Turn your clocks back…..not your health!
