It Was A Good, Healthy, Full-of-Life Summer #HealthiestYouEver Culturelle Community

As the calendar changes and the time continues to fly by, it’s all the more important to take a second and stop. Stop and think about things. Reflect on life and how it’s been. Think about what has happened and appreciate all the good and learn from all the not-that-great. For me, thinking about a summer past is the ideal time to do just that. The kids are going back to school, and life kind of renews. September, for me, is the real start of a new year – not January.

This year, and this summer, have been really great. Work has been good (and busy), the kids had a great time, and we spent some good days and nights together with friends and family. Let’s see now…

I went to see a Mets game…just me and Liam.

I’ve been making health and wellness a greater part of my and my family’s lifestyle, and it’s something that’s going to stick around for a long while. We have also really been trying to put the laptops, phones, iPads, and TV remotes away. Spending real time together, bonding and making memories is what life should be all about, as time really passes in the blink of an eye.

The change I’ve made and seen is a good one, and it’s been a combination of so much. It’s about exercising and taking time for myself. It’s about spending real time with Bill and the kids and about taking more time for the little things. It’s about eating better and taking supplements to make sure my body it getting all that I need.
