Spiritual Adrenaline: Part 2 — Aspirational

The aspirations portion of my book builds on what you learned earlier and then enables you to integrate exercise and nutrition based tools into your existing recovery program.  The great thing is it is not a one-size-fits-all approach and can be modified to fit your health history, current situation and long-term goals.   You can also modify the tools you use as you grow and change.  I teach you how to maximize the benefits of integrating exercise, nutrition and spiritual tools by timing each at various portions of the day and how to “bookend” your healthy lifestyle with your recovery program.
