The erroneus glorification of injuries

We have glorified, over and over, athletes who bear through their pain and get to the finish line, no matter what. Watching the Olympics recently, we can't but appreciate and venerate these strong souls who defy their own physical limitations. And we should. They have...

Finding your way

With so much information out there, it’s not only confusing but difficult to find valid material. Where do we start looking? Who do we listen to? And in the end, how do we know if we are making the right choice? Do your own research, educate yourself. Understand how...
