Our Future Proofing Modules include tracks and The Akira Concept Foundations to set you up for success.
We always work on Foot Health in our Future Proofing and Counter Action programs, and we use this eco-friendly, cork massage ball as a powerful self-healing tool that can enhance joint mobility, relieve pain, increase circulation and calm your nervous system. We like to suggest keeping it under your desk or dining table and simply roll it around on the bottom of each of your feet. It will feel great and the long term effects will astound you.
Bring fitness back into your big toe with my Future Proofing Action Elastic. Your big toe joint endures significant weight-bearing stress with each step you take. Loop the Action Elastic around your left and right big toe at once. Separate your feet from each other, stretching the Action Elastic, creating tension, then release and repeat. This simple movement can stave off bunions, arthritis, gout, turf toe and sesamoiditis, can eliminate sore feet and will increase power in your every step.

ZEGO is committed to testing all of their products for over 400 chemicals, glyphosate, and heavy metals. Also, all ZEGO products are made in a facility which is free of the top twelve allergens. How great for the consumer that they have taken transparency to this level … but also, how alarming it is that our food system, organic or not, can test positive for these toxins? We rely on their protein and oats – read our thoughts on why conscious nourishment matters and Colleen Kavanaugh’s leadership as owner of ZEGO.
We carry a few bottles with us everywhere. Klean Kanteen makes great ones that keep my cold drinks cold, even if you leave it in the car on a hot day and they also keep hot drinks hot for hours. This allows us to prepare drinks at home and take them on the go.
Staying hydrated is an important goal of mine, and hopefully one of yours too. I like that life factory bottles are made of glass protected by a silicone sleeve. Best we all avoid plastic as much as possible!
