Are you familiar with the acronym K.I.S.S.? I first heard it from my high school health teacher, who doubled as the tough-as-nails football coach. I forget the context, but he told the wide-eyed class to "Keep It Simple, Stupid."
Last week we covered some basic suggestions for beating back the blues. In case you missed it, these included increased activity, fish oil and vitamin D. Near the end, I made mention of a few supplements that can offer additional benefit. Today we're going to take a look at a few of these.
How many people in the U.S. suffer from depression? Care to wager a guess? If you said over 15 million Americans, you're going to the Showcase Showdown. What's worse, roughly 80% of those people never receive any help. Plus being a resident of Tennessee means you're among the top 7 states for adults meeting the criteria for depression.
Rome wasn't built in a day. A jug fills drop by drop. Put one foot in front of the other, etc. You can take your pick, but the sheer number of sayings that emphasize the need to start small and be consistent provides a hint to its success.
In my professional career, I've noticed some distinct lines being drawn between all the assessments I perform and clients I train. I can usually pick up on it within a matter of seconds.
Have you ever watched a child's eyes as they play a video game? They become so transfixed and are no longer mentally sitting on the couch. They've been transported to a different dimension, focused on saving the universe or rescuing the princess.

Well, we've come to the end. Week 8 of the core values series introduces the final, and likely the most difficult, value for many of the go-getters out there. We often associate the act of achieving with personal satisfaction so we absolutely abhor the thought of asking for help. But maybe we could use a little assistance in seeing things clearly.
Our second-to-last core value in the series could quite possibly be my favorite. But since I feel like I've said that about each value, I'll narrow it down by saying it's probably my most-often committed core value. After all, to err is human.
I'm not sure playgrounds even exist anymore. When I was a kid (oh no, I said it... I'm officially an adult) we would frequent the swings, slides and merry-go-rounds. But there was one piece of playground equipment that best describes this week's core value of balance; the teeter-totter.
In the past few weeks, we've covered many different areas. Some I've practiced for years, others I'm trying to improve upon. But whether you're a seasoned pro or a practicing rookie, the core values we've covered can all provide immediate benefit.
