Focusing on the small things

In a holistic view of health, self-improvement is not just about what we do for ourselves, but what we do in general. Our activity plays a role in all levels of our health.

Patience is a … necessity

Knowing our weaknesses is as important as knowing our strengths. It is as easy to be blind to those things that hold us back as it is to create unnecessary limits on our own progress. We DO have limits. The trick is to recognize the real ones while not imposing false ones on ourselves. Learning ... Read More
