We are super excited to introduce to you our dear friend, Mateo Daniel. He is truly the epitome of “The Playful Warrior”. He brings so much love and energy to everyone he meets and has reminded us of the importance of PLAY in our lives and for our health! I used to think playing was for kiddos and those lucky people that had the luxury of extra time on their hands…now I realize how important it is for us all to PLAY! Life is so much more fun this way!
We love Mateo’s perspective on life, play and movement. Check out the article below!

If you are having trouble shedding those extra pounds and the scale just won’t budge….I recommend turning your focus towards these 5 often overlooked factors that could be secretly sabotaging your weight loss goals.
Yes…diet and exercise are key components in losing weight, having a rockin’ body and feeling awesome. But…there is much more to the equation that people don’t realize.

Apparently, MANY other people experience skin problems too…perhaps you are one of them. Keep Reading…

Depression is a serious and severe condition whose prevalence is growing more and more every year. We currently understand depression to be a mental or psychiatric disorder, however recent research suggests that it could actually be an allergic reaction to inflammation.
