Attention gentlemen! What are you doing to live your best life possible? Do you know the steps you can take to decrease your risk for disease and enjoy optimal health and wellness? This course explores these topics and more! Module one sets the stage with Men’s Health 101, where I walk through health issues men face and the steps to take for enhanced quality of life. While all humans are susceptible to burnout, the module two version of Avoiding Burnout is tailored to specifically address unique challenges men in modern society face. You will be able to identify symptoms of burnout you may be experiencing, and practical tools and strategies will be offered to enable you to take the necessary steps to reverse course. The series wraps up with what I think is a very under represented topic, yet one that is incredibly important. Sleep apnea is introduced in Men’s Health 101, and in Understanding Sleep Apnea, I take a deeper dive into this life-altering condition. The world needs strong, healthy men, and by the end of this course you will have the information, and hopefully the inspiration to make the choices necessary to be one!

Your Healthiest Self
What does it require to live your best life? I personally believe health and life satisfaction are directly related, but getting to your “healthiest self” can be challenging. Module one lays the groundwork by exploring the Habits of Healthy People. There is a good chance you are doing some of these already, but likely you will be able to find an item or two that could use some attention. With the explosion of information surrounding gut health, and how it significantly impacts many aspects of physical and mental health, I believe basic-level knowledge is critical to moving your needle forward, and Gut Check delivers just that in module two. You definitely cannot be your healthiest self if you don’t address what’s going on in your mind! Mind Matters dives into self-talk and limiting beliefs that could be holding you back. Upon completion of this course you will be stocked with information and strategies to grow into the healthiest human you can be.
