Here is The Roundup, Edition 58, bringing you the best health research and paleo recipes from around the web over the past two weeks.

Blast from the Past

This week I read an interesting opinion piece on why one successful entrepreneur prioritizes his workouts ahead of his business endeavors. While some entrepreneurs might find this decision potentially detrimental to the success of his or her business, the author argues that maintaining his physical health is essential to keeping his business running smoothly. He suggests that exercise is a major component of optimizing his mental and physical state, and that by prioritizing his health above his business, he’s actually able to be more successful in his business. The author even promotes this mentality for his employees and team members.

As an entrepreneur and business owner myself, I strongly identified with this article. Not only do I prioritize exercise in my own life, but I encourage my team to prioritize their physical health as well. Anyone who is familiar with my writing knows that I believe daily movement to be one of the most important factors of health and wellness, and that I’ve set up my workspace to ensure that I’m able to accomplish this daily movement while still working long hours. Unfortunately, lack of movement might be one of the most health-deteriorating trends of our time, and many of us are unable to get the daily movement we need to keep our bodies healthy.

That’s why I created my new program called Made To Move. Many of us, myself included, don’t have time to get to the gym every day, or aren’t interested in doing (unnecessarily) hardcore fitness programs. The truth is, it doesn’t take much activity to keep you healthy, provided you’re getting the right type of activity to keep your body appropriately stimulated. And you don’t need an expensive gym membership to stay fit – with Made to Move, you can do all of the exercises at home, or even at the office.

The goal of this course is simple: to help you move more. If you’re a business owner like me, you can appreciate the benefits of an exercise program that fits in with your busy work day while promoting good physical and mental energy. I hope you’ll join me in Made To Move, and start prioritizing your physical health even above your business!

Research Report

Worth A Look

For the Foodies

  1. How lucky am I?!!! I live 20 minutes from Ephrata, PA in Lancaster PA. I’d rather hear Chis Kressler, a health ‘rock star’, and personally be able to thank him for his in-depth research and generosity than go to any concert! Do you know how many attendees you will be able to accommodate on Sept 19th in Ephrata?

  2. I followed the link on gluten sensitivity and read the article titled ‘Digesting Bread, Pasta Releases Biologically Active Molecules.’

    In the article it says “Until now there has been no evidence showing that the molecules are produced during digestion of real foods” which begs the question – is all the fuss about wheat and pasta blown out of proportion?

  3. Hi there,

    I’m sooooo excited to hear you will be in London! I’ll be travelling from Ireland to attend, but I was wondering have you decided on a cost yet for the practitioner day or where can I access this information.
    Our exchange rate is brutal and I want to start saving!

    Cant wait!
    Thank you,
    Grainne

  4. Thank you so much, Chris, for the great material in your Roundup Edition 58. I particularly appreciated being directed to Shawn Anchor and his 2-minute Happiness Exercises (accurately placed in the ‘Worth a Look’ section). I’m very grateful to you for all the effort you make to provide such helpful information.
