Spring has finally sprung.  Here in Illinois this means a somewhat schizophrenic-like weather pattern of sunny and 70 one day to windy, rainy and 45 the next day.  I’ve been taking advantage of the nice days as much as possible.  Several days a week I get to coach my son’s baseball practices and games and enjoy being outdoors playing America’s favorite pastime.  I’m sure you, like myself, notice after being outdoors it gives you that certain feeling….the feeling of having been outdoors!  It’s a feeling of health, refreshment and a very natural sort of feeling, like this is kinda how things are supposed to be.  On nice days when I’m working I try and go outside and eat over my lunch break as opposed to shoving food down my throat as I stare at a computer.  To take 20-30 minutes to step away from the hectic work day and sit down with a friend/co-worker or two and enjoy some sunshine and Vitamin D synthesis makes a bad workday great.  Take time to step away from work and whatever obligations are competing for your time and go out side to soak up some sun, go for a walk or a hike or catch a local baseball game.  Your physical and mental health will thank you.

Hello and thanks for visiting my site. My name is Ryan Parnham and I'm a 37 year old husband and father of two from central Illinois (hope I haven't bored you yet). The reason I started this site is because I have a passion and desire to live the BEST life possible, and I want to share my thoughts and experiences with other people so they can educate themselves and change things in their lives to live the best life possible as well. I strongly believe that nutrition is one of, if not the biggest, factor in health, vitality and longevity. I feel I have a bit of a unique perspective on things given my professional and personal back ground. I have an undergraduate degree in nursing as well as a master's of science degree in nursing and am a board certified family nurse practitioner from the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP). I have been in the medical field for over 15 years now
