Things to Consider When Buying a New Suit

vThis isn't as simple as colour, and then out the door. Nothing ever is in the fashion world. Boys, we have a tendency to rush over the finer details. That leaves us with a look that is less than ideal. So why not plan to take a few minutes, get fit properly, and then make a first impression like no one else?

Out of the Box Gift Ideas To Encourage Healthy Living

The iWatch isn't out yet. I am sure that more than most people would be happy to wake up to an IOU for Apple's new iWatch -- this thing is going to revolutionize health.

How to Stay Healthy During Eggnog Season

I've never said it's bad to indulge during this time of year, I simply say that if you don't want to gain the typical holiday season weight it's best to leave the treats alone. Let's be honest though, we all look forward to everything food-related this time of year. We put way to much emphasis on weight in our society. It's not about your weight, or how you look -- we need to be healthy.

How This Country Boy Learned to Take Style Seriously

I was born and raised in Kleefeld, Manitoba. I rode dirt bikes, shot guns, and my first paycheques came from cleaning out chicken and hog barns. I've never been a fashion guy. Now my career has evolved to keynote speaker, wellness consultant, and health writer. My newest skill sets include making a killer cup of coffee, and schmoozing. I need to add to that, fashionable.

If You Want to Get Healthy, Start With the Fundamentals

Fundamentals are strangely something in this world that we glaze over. The basics, the building blocks, the ground work that will create a project or building that is unshakable. Yet, we put very little time and effort into mastering those fundamentals. We need to build a workforce that is supported in these five fundamentals.

Are You Guilty of This All-Inclusive Vacation Habit?

I see people do this really unhealthy thing, especially young people: They book an all inclusive vacation, diet for six weeks unhealthy, workout at a short bootcamp, then head off to a sunny beach to take a few selfies on the first day and put all the weight and then some back with buffets and breakfast margarita.

Don't Like to Workout? Three Shortcuts to Keep You Healthy

The work to get "sexy" is way more than what you need to do to be healthy. That's the problem. Our media and our massive gyms seem to be working in cahoots to get your money.

Get to Know Your Food Better

There are far too many people, who are so far removed from what they eat that they don't understand what they are doing to their bodies. Our farming practices have become big business, and the little farms need to come back to the spotlight. It's not all doom and gloom, but we need a few tweaks on some things. Here are my big thoughts.

The Way Most Workplaces Encourage Exercise Is Wrong

Start creating cultures and communities in your workplace that support active living. Doesn't need to be the gym life, it needs to be simple happy movement. Sneak it in, offer programs and ideas that are activity based. Have fun, bring in some puppies or food-based days that people don't even realize is healthy.

Don't Work Out to Look Sexy

Healthy living conversations need a make over. Our vision is skewed and our motives lack staying power. Our goals are set by wanting to be sexy, not by wanting to be healthy. Depriving yourself to look a certain way won't make you healthy.

Look at Fitness From a New Angle

We want to get to a certain number, physical look, or something along those lines. Vanity is a great motivator, and can't be over looked. But what about getting back to a state in life where we are like puppies and babies. Seeing things for the first time?
