Sometimes in the midst of fine-tuning our health – learning this fact, experimenting with that change – we can get caught up in the drama of nuance. Trust me, I’m all for improving my personal outcome. I’m grateful to be at the point of having all the fundamentals of good health more or less down. I’m happy to be playing with the details, but on some level I recognize it as such. I get to play on the upper rungs of health and vitality. While I wholeheartedly believe the efforts and experimentation are well worth the added benefits, I don’t take myself so seriously at this point. I’ve learned to loosen up. Not only does taking a more casual approach make the process more fun, I think it confers perspective on the whole game. The fact is, I believe in passing on information that can help people lead healthy lives without running around like chicken little if someone so much as eats a French fry. Humor, irreverence, even contrariness might be my bag, but sensationalism just isn’t. Frankly, I find the hype and anxiety of it exhausting.
