How To Stay Active And Healthy, Here are some tips Tagged with:

Having a disability doesn’t mean you can’t be active and healthy at the same time. In fact, everyone needs daily exercise in their lives in order to feel good and improve body function and mood. The key is to ask your doctor about what’s right for you. For example, what will work well with any medications you’re taking, and how much exercise should you try to get in within a given week?

October is widely known as Breast Cancer awareness month with cities hosting several walks and races. Sadly most of us can say that we know or have known someone who has journeyed this road.  Those whom are surviving can find themselves in a de-conditioned state in the blink of an eye.  Everyone that is dealing with the recovery of cancer will echo the same thing.  I want to feel better, get stronger and increase my endurance.

How a Doctor’s Body Language Can Ease Communication with Patients with Disability

How a Doctor's Body Language Can Ease Communication with Patients with Disability Tagged with:

Academy award-nominated film producer Peter Guber once said, “Your body language, your eyes, your energy will come through to your audience before you even start speaking.” Meanwhile, according to Albert Mehrabian, Professor Emeritus of Psychology at UCLA, approximately 55 percent—more than half—of communication is nonverbal. This is true in all areas of communication, particularly when communicating with patients. As soon as you walk through the door, you have begun a conversation without speaking a word, and that silent dialogue can have serious repercussions. Unconscious behaviors the physician may not even realize he is exhibiting can make patients uncomfortable and make communication more difficult.

Welcome Fatherhood

Welcome Fatherhood Tagged with:

This is the story of how a little boy name Xavier aka Xavi (sa-bi) changed my life forever. Major life events such as marriage, divorce, job promotion, graduation and others can bring many lifestyle changes that could potentially turn your life around. I recently became a new dad and experiencing fatherhood for the first time made me realize that life will be completely different from now on. It took me a while to realize how different life was going to be, but day by day I am faced with new experiences that are challenging but also rewarding in this new stage of my life.

Authenticity, Muhammad Ali and the Power of Sport Tagged with:

The word authenticity is being thrown around a bit casually these days, a trending “buzz word” in the urban vernacular. We hear people make statements such as, “I am just being me” when they choose to act certain ways or express their opinions.
