Exploring the Nature and Experience of Life

  • What It Is To Be A Father

    October 18, 2019 by

    Do you know that postpartum depression can affect fathers, not just mothers?  It’s true, and luckily it’s becoming more widely known and accepted.  Personally, I don’t care about labeling what someone is feeling or experiencing.  The important part here is that people understand they are not alone and what they are going through is real… Read more

    October 4, 2019 by

    The past few weeks have been hectic to say the least.  Kait and I decided to put our house on the market, and in doing so our lives have become incredibly busy.  Though it is by far one of the most exciting times in our lives, it is also one of the most stressful.  … Read more

  • Movement is Important, but it is NOT Everything

    October 1, 2019 by

    Movement is the way of the body.  Movement is how the body expresses itself and interacts with the world.  It is one of the ways in which the mind interacts with the world.  When a human or animal can perform highly skilled movements, it is a sign of health and even prosperity.  Simply look to… Read more

  • Traveling with a Newborn: Cape Cod, MA

    September 27, 2019 by

    This was by far our longest car ride with Weston.  Philadelphia to Wellfleet, Cape Cod, Massachusetts is six and a half hours without stopping or traffic.  So at its best, it is double what we did last weekend, when traveling to Woodstock. We left Saturday morning. I had a client in the morning, so we… Read more

  • We are Constantly Changing, It’s up to Us as to How

    September 24, 2019 by

    To follow-up on my post last week, Why I Took Out My Earbuds…. I mentioned my Apple products, Audible, and podcasts almost as if the problem is that they exist. That is not the case at all.

  • Traveling with a Newborn: Woodstock, NY

    September 20, 2019 by

    This was our longest drive yet with Weston.  He was eight weeks old and every day has been different.  The past couple of weeks have been a little rough at times, as far as Weston’s sleeping and our sleep.  He had his best night of sleep yet, six hours straight and then three and a… Read more

  • Why I Took Out My Earbuds

    September 17, 2019 by

    For last month, I have stopped wearing my AirPods while walking to and from working with clients.  Actually, the last time I remember wearing them was my trip to Tucson, which was one month ago. Typically, over the past 5 years that I have lived and worked in Philadelphia, I would go back and forth between… Read more

  • Traveling with a Newborn: Ocean City, NJ (Our First Trip)

    September 13, 2019 by

    As you may know, we took our first vacation with our newborn son, Weston.  He hit six weeks old half way through our trip to Ocean City.  Living and working in Philadelphia, we don’t use our car much.  On average, we probably drive it once every 2-3 weeks. Needless to say, Weston has not been… Read more

A popular stress combatant is exercise. Exercising helps because it releases hormones that reduce stress and don’t make us… Read more

  • The Most Common Cause of Pain

    September 6, 2019 by

    I have been working with people for about the past 12 years. I graduated with my doctor of physical therapy degree about 10 years ago, but I started really working with people who have pain during clinical rotations during school.  I have learned a ton about life by working with people who have pain, injury, or… Read more
