I wanted to talk about feelings this week, as often men find it difficult to express them or even to talk about them, often leaving emotions unacknowledged. However, our feelings and emotions are a way to understand if we are in alignment or not, they are a connection to the health of our mind and body and also a guiding force telling us follow what is right or to walk away from what is not.

State

State

Today we are so familiar with being distracted, by work, technology and planning for the future. We are more distracted than routinely focused.

Have you ever noticed how important your state is? Mentally when you are present and focused how much work do you get done, how much more productive are you? You can can get more done in one hour than what may take you half a day when you are not in a good mental state.
