What’s up everybody?

This post will kick off a new segment of my blog: at the end of every month I will send out links to all the interesting podcasts, books, documentaries, articles, music, movies, and performances that I checked out throughout the previous 4 weeks and that inspired me in some way, shape or form.

I’ve been doing this for my clients via email the last few months, and I thought that it would be cool to share this stuff with all of you as well.

One of the characteristics that I feel distinguishes me from others in the health and fitness industry is that I have a very broad definition of “wellness.”

Change Your “Diet”

This past weekend, I was listening to a “Beats 1” Podcast that featured one of my favorite young Hip-Hop artists, Joey Badass.

Joey just released his second full length LP, entitled “Amerikkkan Badass” – if you haven’t heard this album, it is absolutely amazing, and I highly recommend giving it a thorough listen.

The music is uplifting, inspirational, and delivers a stinging social commentary on the current state of our Union as it pertains to social justice and race relations.

Every Book I Read This Year – 2016

readers-leadersLet me start this post by wishing everyone reading a very “Happy New Year.” 

A few years ago I decided that I wasn’t reading as much as I would’ve liked, and I made a resolution to read at least 2 books per month.

I was out of practice, and sitting down for several minutes on end in deep concentration was not easy.

Like most adults living in the “Age of Information,” my brain had adapted to quick bouts of stimulus from multiple sources spread out across the day.

I decided to treat this endeavor as a form of mental exercising, and I started with a slow, gradual approach, just as I would any type of athletic pursuit.

A Renaissance Man’s Guide To Reading

It is what you read when you don’t have to that determines what you will be when you can’t help it. –Oscar Wilde

We have officially begun the second half of 2016, and I have just started reading my fourteenth book of the year.

If you know me or have been following my blog, you know that reading is one of my greatest passions.

I was an avid reader as a child, but, like many people, I fell out of the habit in my early twenties.

I few years ago, I made it a goal of mine to read at least two books per month as a way to spur me back into action.

Every Book I Read This Year

I had one New Year’s resolution in 2015, and it was to read 2 books a month for all 12 months.

I am pleased to say that not only did I accomplish this task, but I totally murdered it!

As I type this post, just 3 days away from the new year, I am currently half way through my 28th book!

I can honestly say that this experience has been life changing, and I will undoubtedly continue this hobby through 2016, and beyond.
