Newsletter · June 12 2022 ·
Welcome to the latest edition of The Vitality Newsletter. This week I wanted to share some exciting news. About a year ago, I set out on a journey to write a book that was different from any other health, wellness, and self-improvement book out there. I wanted to create an all-encompassing and digestible resource for people that could provide value no matter the circumstance. Spanning over 30 topics pertaining to your health and wellness, this book offers a comprehensive guide to improving your quality of life. You can take control of your health, wellness, and performance by using foundational principles, action-based strategies, and tools that are easy to use. Many books give you similar resources for a specific topic, but my goal is to offer information, strategies, and resources for various topics. This holistic approach is intended to achieve my ultimate goal:
- Empower people to take control of their health and wellness.
- Ignite meaningful change.
- Inspire others while reaching personal fulfillment.
Over the coming months, I will finally be able to share this resource, and I couldn’t be more excited! Stay tuned for more information!

Four factors that make up Emotional Intelligence (EQ or EI)
- Self Awareness (Understanding your own emotions)
- Self Management (How you actually manage and regulate your emotions)
- Social Awareness (How you understand and empathize with other people’s emotions)
- Relationship Management or Social Skills (Using your awareness of your own emotions and those of others to manage interactions successfully)
Emotional Intelligence is a very strong (possibly the strongest) predictor of success in work, relationships, and sports.

Things I’m Trying
Sauna and Cold Shower Blitz: Been incorporating the sauna into my routine for about an hour a week, split up into 5-7 sessions, usually after my workouts. I have also been doing a 1-2 minute cold blitz at the end of my morning showers before I start my work day. Both sauna and cold exposure can have incredible health benefits when used correctly.
