In today’s Echo we will learn from Tom Sullivan on how to take disadvantage and turn it into opportunity. Tom has been blind since birth, but this hasn’t stopped him from fulfilling his dreams of being an actor, singer, entertainer, author and producer.
Today’s echo gives us a view of why Men and Women see things and do things differently. It’s funny and it will make you laugh, but it’s also true. One of the challenges we face in life is trying to see the world differently. Trying to see the world the way another person sees the world. We call it our paradigm’s.. Thanks to Lauri Lane for sharing this video today. Take a look..

Every week I see a bunch of injuries from various activities. The first thing most patients state is how faithful they have used ice, and or Ibuprofen….NOOOOOOOOOOOOO I want to scream…… People stop Ice’ing and using anti-inflammatories on your injuries…. I know it feels better… I could write gobs of information on study after study why doing this is delaying your bodies ability to heal but we will save that for another episode. Today we will look at compression and how if you use compression properly, you will maximize your bodies ability to heal much faster. Take a look at voodoo flossing and begin to implement it into your life..
In 1939, the new battleship Bismarck launched from Hamburg, Germany. It was the most powerful vessel on the water and was considered unsinkable. But when a torpedo jammed its rudder, the Bismark lost its ability to steer to safety, away from the enemy. We live in a world full of conflict. Like that battleship, we will sink without a sense of direction. Jesus Christ provides that direction, and living His teachings will steer us safely home.

The past few weeks we have been talking about getting off your butt and standing. We have also been talking about how to run and move with proper mechanics. One of the instruments we can use is the “ShoeCue”. Brian MacKenzie talks about this remarkable insert you can change from shoe to shoe. You get instant feedback as you walk and move throughout the day on how the weight should be distributed on your feet. Check out this short video and start using the “ShoeCue”.
Today’s Echo we move on to progression #3 with Kelly Starrett…. We have discussed position of the feet, how to take care of the feet, and today we will look at muscles higher up the chain. Mobilizing these tissues is critical to maintain good health. Taking the time to combat the 10,000 plus steps you and I take everyday plus any running is critical to maintain health. Think of it this way…. If you knew it was going to snow 1 inch an hour for 24 hours wouldn’t it be easier to take a broom every hour and sweep the snow off???? Or you could wait for 24 inches to accumulate and tackle that task? You body is no different. Most people wait until they tear and ACL or rotator cuff to realize how much easier it would have been to maintain tissue health and pay attention to spinal position and good body mechanics.
