Zen Golf Quote of the Week
Zen Golf Quote of the Week 5-5-16
Try thinking of every tee shot on a par-4 or par-5 as a layup shot. Instead of just trying to hit it as far as you can, pick a spot on the fairway that's well within reach. This reduces the tendency to swing too hard. You'll be surprised how many times that relaxed swing sends the ball even farther down the fairway than you could imagine.

in ZEN GOLF: Mastering the Mental Game
by Dr. Joe Parent
Eating to fill an emotional hole creates extra suffering because we are looking in the wrong direction for a solution. The problem is that our stomach is not what we need to fill. If the emptiness is in our psyche or spirit, we need psychological or spiritual nourishment, not more food.

in THE BEST DIET BOOK EVER: The Zen of Losing Weight
by Dr. Joe Parent
Here's one of the latest 5-Star reviews from Amazon:
Last Diet Book You Will Ever Need
Having been on EVERY DIET ever, I weigh in as an expert on seesaw dieting. First thing that resonated with me was the suggestion to approach dieting in a positive (instead of punitive) way. This may sound simple, but for me, it was life-changing. This book does not tell you what to eat, but HOW to change your unhealthy habits bit by bit. In one month, I have lost over five pounds and lots of inches. It may be the last diet book you will ever need.
Please share this with your email list, your Facebook friends,
and any others you connect with who might benefit from it. Thanks!
"Losing 65 pounds gave me the confidence to succeed. I’ve kept the weight off and kept winning tournaments. Dr. Parent is a master, and this book will really help you lose weight, feel more confident, and achieve your goals."
