Jeff Steinmann

When opportunity comes along, ask yourself if it will allow you to spend more or less time inside your living circle. Don't go outside your living circle any more than you have to. Every minute spent outside your living circle is a minute of your life that you've lost forever.

I have three young girls, and two of them have special needs. I often feel as if I am surviving rather than living. The last thing I need to do is add an unreasonable list of more things to. I have limits, and I'm not afraid to embrace those limits.

Absent Parents Get Involved

Dealing with divorce as a young adult was extremely painful. However, I always felt truly blessed and very fortunate to have two amazing parents who loved us unconditionally.

The idea behind CrossFit is a good one -- it promotes community, the importance of strength training, compound movements, and even healthy competition. The reality of it creates grey areas, and practitioners definitely haven't seen a reduction in patients since the emergence of CrossFit hype in the real world.

My generation is guilty as charged: We're constantly Instagramming, tweeting, texting, Facebooking, and any other technology-themed "ing" gerund you know. I'm certainly a part of that. So could constant connectivity be the reason why happiness is so difficult to define these days?
