Live well

There are as many different definitions of living well as there are people on this earth. But to me (this is Jeff speaking) "live well" means to be a Braveheart, not a Faintheart. It means pursuing your dreams because of what can be, not selling yourself short by thinking about the odds stacked up against success.

"Live well" is about looking for opportunities to give, knowing that the more we give, the more that will be given back to us. "Live well" is about choosing to be happy. As Abraham Lincoln said, "Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be."

"Live well" is also about making good choices about lifestyle. It's turning 30-year lifestyle problems into 30-year lifestyle solutions, about building good habits into each day, week, month and year and reaping over time the cumulative benefits. For example, taking lunch to work and having a good mix of complex carbohydrates, fats and proteins with each meal or snack, grazing not gorging. "Live well" is a choice and an adventure that Teri and I share.
