How to Start Exercising and Stick to It
Making Exercise an Enjoyable Part of Your Everyday Life
You already know there are many great reasons to exercise—from improving energy, mood, sleep, and health to reducing anxiety, stress, and depression. And detailed exercise instructions and workout plans are just a click away. But if knowing how and why to exercise was enough, we’d all be in shape. Making exercise a habit takes more—you need the right mindset and a smart approach. Whatever your age or fitness level—even if you’ve never exercised a day in your life —there are steps you can take to make exercise less intimidating and painful and more fun and instinctive.

Big businesses are not looking out for us as individuals. There are many large companies who want to sell products, whether in the food industry, or in the pharmaceutical industry.

Hope for the Future in Ink
When we talk about recovery, we’re talking about a person in transition. He’s moving from a state of sickness to one of health, or from self-hate to self-love, or from who he’s been to who he wants to be. He’s becoming a more whole-hearted version of himself that doesn’t use drugs or alcohol to numb his feelings or dull his experience of life.
The journey begins by asking Who are you? An addict, an alcoholic? A man in pain, someone who is ashamed of his past or hopeless about his future? A loner, a wildcard, a clown? And then asking Who do you want to be?
We carry these two versions of ourselves—who we have been and who we could be.
Who a man wishes to be forms the blueprint for how he can sustain lifelong remission from addiction. As the men of Voyage explore who they are, and begin constructing a picture of who they want to be, they reconnect with parts of themselves they haven’t looked at in a long time, or ever…
12 Ways To Become The Best Version of Yourself
From kids to adults, we hear it all time; “Do your best!” “Be the best you can be” “Be confident” But what does all that mean? What does that really look like on a day-to-day basis? In a world where standards are raising, everything is more complex and more competitive, if we’re not doing our best – it feels like we can get left behind.
