Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing,
the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work: you don’t give up.

Human Performance…a pretty broad spectrum when you really pause to think about it.Performance can be related to an arena of activities:

  • Work
  • Family
  • Sports
  • Academia
  • Physical Health
  • Everyday life
  • Relationships
  • Sleep
  • Mental Health
  • Stress management
  • Aging

Yet, every single one of these arena’s are interconnected and managed by one common physiological structure: your central nervous system and its ability to communicate with both your internal and external environment

Even more amazing is the understanding that how our human body performs or fails to perform is a direct result of the presence or absence of adaptive function of our organ systems which are all dependent upon the function of our central nervous system.

You see, in each of the activities listed above on human performance, when one arena suffers, multiple arenas suffer and we often wonder why?

For most of us, we seek treatment for a specific symptom in one arena such as sleep, while neglecting the root cause of the breakdown found at the level of the central nervous system.

While we may find temporary symptomatic relief, often times, there is a bigger problem brewing: an inability of your central nervous system to properly adapt to the stress of normal everyday life.

In the long run, this can result in multiple systemic issues such as chronic sleep deprivation, decreased ability to focus, chronic health conditions like heart disease and even lead to an early death due to accelerated aging.
