Respond vs. React?

Are they the same thing? I say NO.  I hadn’t thought about the difference until a year ago while sitting in a workshop for entrepreneurs. For as long as I can remember I have had a full schedule day in and day out. You could even say I thrive on it. The problem is I was in reaction mode.  Years ago when I was working on my doctorate I would work all day and then spend several hours a night studying or writing papers. Heck when Judy was pregnant with Sydney and going into labor I was in the office...

Are You A Dysfunctional Breather?

How Well Do You Breathe? Most people don't consider or think or about their breathing just because it happens naturally, which is good.  However, what happens is most people end up breathing incorrectly, whether it's from a trauma, injury, or just changes in postural habits.  Your breath has a tremendous effect on your health.  It can actually affect multiple areas of your life.  Proper breathing, results in greater oxygenation of your blood, improved HRV, which is heart rate variability.
