20 Minutes to a Better Back & a Stronger Core - PDF digital format
All movement starts with the spine! We have to be strong, stable, and flexible in the middle or everything else will suffer.
The spine and the muscles of the back, which often cause us pain, are ALIVE because you are ALIVE. Pain might be temporary and usually is, because the body is ALWAYS changing, for better or worse. Keep hope because your situation might improve faster than you think! I’ve seen it happen many times.
This 20 minute program is my favorite combination when it comes to relieving back pain. Are there more? Of course. There are an infinite number of exercises for the “core”, or the middle of the body.
Though I could have chosen 30 or even 50 or more exercises to do for the core, I only chose these 22 because 22 exercises are easy to do in 20 minutes. You can do them any time of day, and on consecutive days.

Work is not what it used to be. In our modern world, work isn’t valued and respected like it should be. Sadly, work seems to have lost much of its inherent meaning. The decline of work is a tragedy because to put it simply: work is a good and noble thing. There was a time when and if a person was working, he or she was likely happy, proud, and fulfilled. Work can be a noble and joyful pursuit, and it’s about much more than just making money.

It's been called "Chicken Soup for the Soul meets Harvard Business School" and offers practical action steps for positive change including how to manage work stress, create a healthy work environment, and how to set and attain reasonable work goals.
