Sub Zero Temperatures-Yoga-Body Effects-Bob Davis Podcast 805

Minnesotans love to talk about the weather. These days sub zero weather in the upper midwest is a fact of life. How does it effect your yoga practice? Find out in Sub Zero Temperatures-Yoga-Body Effects-Bob Davis Podcast 805.

Minus 32 is a lot colder than 17

First of all when it comes to yoga there’s a big difference between 17 to 20 degrees and 30 degrees below zero. By the way, we’re talking Fahrenheit here, not Celsius.

Our Bodies Don’t Adjust As Quickly As Our Minds

Furthermore we practice in rooms heated sometimes above one hundred degrees. In contrast our bodies are still adjusted to sub zero temperatures.

One Hundred and Thirty Degree Temperature Difference

Hard to believe there is a a one hundred a thirty degree temperature difference between outside and the studio when it is 30 below zero.

Easier To Practice When It’s Thirty

Moreover outside temps see sawing between below zero real temperatures and warm spells of above thirty. This too effects my practice. Yes it’s a lot easier to practice when it’s thirty outside.

Falling On Ice

Finally we’re all dealing with physical exertion beyond spring, fall and summer. Falling on the ice. Shoveling snow. Ice Fishing. Winter fun. They all help get through a tough season but take their toll.

Daily Practice Means Daily Practice

In conclusion it doesn’t matter how cold it is, I am still going out to join the rest of the community in practice. Being committed to a daily practice sometimes means pushing yourself, but it is so worth it. Some days are easier than others but I always feel great after practice.

See you in the studio

Cage Match 2020-Chaos America-Bob Davis Podcast 801

When people say happy new year these days they mean welcoming in 2019. When the media says happy new year, they mean 2020. Find out why in Cage Match 2020-Chaos America-Bob Davis Podcast 801.

Political Cage Match Starts Now

Especially relevant here is the end of the government shut down without an agreement on immigration. Trump’s next move doesn’t matter. It’s all about 2020 from here on. Learn more in Cage Match 2020-Chaos America-Bob Davis Podcast 801.

Seems like we just had an election.

First of all, it’s Iowa’s fault

Iowa has scheduled the first caucus or primary in the nation for February 3rd 2020. Consequently a cavalcade clown show is already on the ground in the Hawkeye State in February of this year! For a full schedule of caucuses and primaries click here.

US Senate Is Bull Pen For Presidential Candidates

Furthermore it looks like half the democratic senators are running. For a full list of potential candidates, click here. This is the best argument for repealing the seventeenth amendment and going back to appointing senators.

Even Angelina Jolie might run

Above all this week everyone was triggered by Coffee Guy Howard Schultz. His announcement lasted about 90 seconds before he was heckled. Speculation on whether a Starbucks candidacy would help or hurt Trump was everywhere.

The Republicans are stuck with Trump no matter what.

Finally republicans who think they’ll dump Trump are in for a rude awakening. With the Republican National Committee already a slave to the Trump reelection effort and Republican Convention rule changes, there will be no more grassroots challenges.

Happy New Year 2020! Now about that deserted tropical island. Where do I sign up! (Editor’s Note: Yes I know this is the original promotional video for the ill fated Fyre Fest, but who cares, it gets the tropical island escape idea across.)

Thanksgiving Thought Starters-Fight Starters-Fight Enders-Podcast 679

Thanksgiving dinner is supposed to be a fun family get together. At times this fall celebration of the harvest can erupt into ugly political and social disputes. Time for some ideas to flip the script in Thanksgiving Thought Starters-Fight Starters-Fight Enders-Podcast 679.

Welcome To The Rollercoaster

Especially relevant is the fact that the holiday season from Thanksgiving to Christmas, can be an emotional rollercoaster for almost all families. Whether you’re hosting the dinner or heading out to a relative’s house it’s a good idea to be prepared.

Freedom of Choice

In Thanksgiving Thought Starters-Fight Starters-Fight Enders-Podcast 679 I share some personal thanksgiving and family experiences to get you thinking. Most important is to remember we all have the freedom of choice about what we think about social or political issues. If you want to hear an example of my own personal thanksgiving experience a few years ago, click here.

What He Said!

When it comes to politics these days, you can bet there will be discussion at the Thanksgiving table about much of the reactive coverage about politics. Add alcohol to the mix, and you will have to decide whether to engage or not, depending on your situation. Of course, give yourself permission to keep your mouth shut, or leave right after dinner, if necessary.

SeaChangeTone

Should you make the decision to engage your crazy uncle on a political level Thanksgiving Thought Starters-Fight Starters-Fight Enders-Podcast 679 gives you ideas on how change the tone of the conversation.

In conclusion when it comes to politics and social issues we could all do with a change in tone. Do we want to be leaders or followers? Rather than fighting about what someone else says on a TV Show why not talk about what we are for? What kind of a world do we think is coming? Where does our energy and advocacy belong.

The Old World Is Passing

Moreover we are seeing fewer positive interactions with the age old institutions of our society like government and religion. What kind of world is coming and what is our role in it? Throw that out over the mashed potatoes and see what happens. Or not.
