A study released Tuesday by the Journal of the American Medical Association suggested a new concern about BPA. Because of the possible public health implications, the results “deserve scientific follow-up,” the study authors said. Using a health survey of nearly 1,500 adults, they found that those exposed to higher amounts of BPA were more likely to report having heart disease and diabetes.
But the study is preliminary, far from proof that the chemical caused the health problems. Two… Continue

Maybe it really is that simple.
It was really insignificant but it threw me off enough to be a distraction. I knew better intellectually but emotions can be a beast to deal with at times. Ever have one of these experiences? Your mind is saying “You know it is sort of . . . what’s the word. . . idiotic” but my, shall I say, less evolved part is going on like a Jack Russell who finished his third espresso in 20 minutes. And so the battle is on.
Fortunately, there is the… Continue

Several years ago, I took one of the best aikido trainings I have ever taken in my life. Larry Renosa, a 5th dan (very high ranking aikidoist) and senior student of Steven Segal (yes, that Steven Segal) came to Naples and put on quite the show. The one difference that separated his style of teaching from others is that we trained only about 50% of the time. The other half was spent listening.
Now for many, this would be frustrating. Aikidoist like to learn and train and train and… Continue

Today I had lunch with a good friend who teaches The Work of Byron Katie all throughout the Latin World. She estimates that among all the people she has exposed to this amazing skill of liberation, about 1% continue to practice it seriously. That's a very low number, especially because we are talking about 1% of the spiritually minded subgroup of people.
Ironically that actually speaks of the effectiveness of this skill. It's much easier for us to fritter away our time with things… Continue

NOTE: This is an excerpt from the book The Least You Should Know About Life.
Take another look at Albert Einstein’s statement, “Insanity is when you keep doing the same thing and expect a different result.” As a scientist, Einstein understood a fundamental law
of nature, a law that Jesus expressed as follows,…

For over a year now, I have been advised to write a book. I have had so much resistance and difficulty in sitting still to do it. Knowing what I know about book writing, I had some inner conflict. So here is the mind of Shannon....

True or false:
___ I would be happier if I made more money, found the perfect mate, lost 10 pounds or moved to a new house.
___ Happiness is genetic. You can't change how happy you are any more than you can change how tall you are.
___ Success brings happiness.
Answers: False, false and false.
IF RECENT scientific research on happiness -- and there has been quite a bit -- has proved anything, it's that happiness is not a goal. It's a process.… Continue

Cutting calories may seem like a daunting task, especially when you’re trying to cut hundreds of calories each day to lose the recommended one to two pounds per week. Will you go hungry? Will your meals taste like cardboard? Will you have to give up your favorite foods?
Don’t worry. When you make small changes, the only difference you’ll notice is a drop in the scale. Keep in mind that cutting calories can involve smart substitutions or changes in portion sizes, too. Just remember,… Continue

Yes, IT has happened our nest is empty. Recently, our second child flew away to go attend college. All of my close friends and family are calling and asking, "How does it feel to be an empty nester?" "Does it feel like being a newlywed?" "Is it true empty nesters...........this ..............and that?" To be perfectly honest, it is the first time in my life I actually have felt, "grown up." I have thoughts of grandeur that we reproduced two happy college students that want to make a difference… Continue

During summer with its plentiful supply of fresh, locally grown produce, it's a great time to think about using food for more than just fuel but as a key element in preventing a host of diseases. As you strive to make healthier food choices, you may come across the terms natural and organic. But what exactly do these terms mean?
Organic refers specifically to the agricultural methods used to cultivate the food. Organic farms forego most conventional pesticides and use no antibiotics… Continue

One of my goals with my book The Spiritual Entrepreneur
is to show people that you can use your business to raise money for charity while making a profit, and that it's completely ethical and moral to do so.
For a couple of thousand years we've been indoctrinated into believing that when we give to a charity then we must make a sacrifice, or otherwise our giving 'doesn't count'.
This very concept comes from a limited mindset that says that 'In order for one to gain,… Continue

With the rising costs of food and fuel putting a pinch on everyone's pocketbook these days, one way to ease the pain is to eat out less and make more meals at home.
Home-cooked meals provide at least 2 big benefits: They help you save money and are healthier for you and your family. Sure, eating out can be an enjoyable indulgence once in a while, but it often costs you a lot of hidden calories and fat.
Once you decide to do more cooking at home, pick out some favorite… Continue

Psychologists tell us it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. I beg to differ.
Ask me to learn something of a physical nature and I can usually pick it up fairly quickly. Ask me to memorize something and I can usually do this fairly quickly as well. As me to learn something deeply personal and impactful and. . . well . . .can we go back to asking me to learn something of a physical nature please?!
