Our thinking influences everything else we do

Disney leadership chain of excellence
It’s called the Disney chain of excellence. Crazy thing is…leadership drives the bottom line health.


Our thinking influences everything else we do.

Our mind influences our thinking, our thinking influences our choices, our choices determine whether or not we make time for regular exercise, adequate rest, and a balanced diet.

Exercise, rest, and nutrition are three (of seven) physical wellness basics.

Crazy thing is…our physical health has this massive impact on our emotional (spiritual) well being.




On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.


This website is about our physical health. To easily and safely leave this site to read today’s post on jeff’s spiritual health website, click here.

There’s an intriguing correlation between improving one area in our life and the degree to which the other areas are similarly impacted even though the ripple effect wasn’t our motive.

Sometimes change is forced our way and sometimes we control whether change can happen or not. And generally we are resistant to change, so we fight it when it’s forced, and we’d much rather take comfort in tradition and routine.

The reason both weekend days were active rest is because Mid Life Celebration is ‘closed’ on weekends – a “money” decision rippling into body.
