Mindset:

“It doesn’t matter how far you might rise. At some point, you are bound to stumble…. If you’re constantly pushing yourself higher…the law of averages, not to mention the Myth of Icarus, predicts that you will at some point fall. And when you do, I want you to know this, remember this: There is no such thing as failure. Failure is just life trying to move us in another direction.”
–Oprah Winfrey

Nutrition:

Epsom salt baths are great for sore muscles, stress and for dosing your body with magnesium. Magnesium is great for brain function, nervous system health, muscle cramps and digestion.
