Inspired by Jack

Here's to a hearty dose of wellness inspiration from the past ...  

If you don't recognize fitness hero Jack LaLanne and his wife of 50+ years, Elaine Doyle LaLanne, check out Jack's wiki bio here. There are myriad things from his 96 years and approach to wellness to be inspired by, but this particular highlight is especially noteworthy: 

Jack described himself as sugar-holic and junk food junkie until he was 15. He also had behavioral problems, but "turned his life around" after being inspired at a wellness talk about the benefits of good nutrition by health food pioneer Paul Bragg.

What a great reminder that no matter where your health is, you can turn your 'ship'  in any direction you decide.  

The esteemed author of the bestseller Atomic Habits, James Clear, blogged about LaLanne's life as well.  Check out his fascination with Mr. LaLanne and his healthy habits here.  

May you be inspired to make healthy choices for your self every day.
