“This is a one-day nationwide 5k committed to changing how we live. It’s 3,000+ people in 30+ cities all in one movement. It’s a day of action and not apathy. A rally where we take a proactive stand against poor health together. After all, living healthier is easy. All it takes is commitment. It’s not a resolution. It’s a revolution of you.” – Lifetime Fitness
EXERCISE, COMMITMENT, CHANGE and REVOLUTION… That’s a powerful way to start 2014. Along with thousands of people, I also stand for a health revolution to take place in my self and the world. I would like to acknowledge every person that showed up on that New Year’s morning, after a night of champagne toast and midnight kisses, to commit to a change. Let’s put living healthy higher!
“More than 90 percent of the people walking about in an ordinary neighborhood are unhealthy, judged by simple biological criteria. This ill health cannot be cured by hospitals or medicine.” -Christopher Alexander
Health is not identical for everyone or every culture. It has taken on a thousand different forms and has been at the center of every culture for thousands of years. In all the different expressions, I believe there is an invariant core to them that is responsible for health success.
I commit in 2013 to live a life of Patterned Health. I will rediscover old and seek out new patterns that generate a healthy, whole and self-generating life. This is my journey of personal growth and a practitioner of acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. I hope anyone who encounters me through my blog, lectures, social media and practice will be inspired and encouraged that they can achieve a Patterned Health life.
