I want to personally welcome you to the Best Men’s Health and Lifestyle blog. I’m Earnest Robinson Jr and I started this blog site to share and learn from other men over the age of 40 who are looking to live a more happy, healthy, and fulfilling life. I am learning to love life again as a divorcé and dad to three wonderful kids. My physical health is better than it has been in years. I am nearly a pro at reducing and managing my stress. My hunger for spiritual growth has never been as strong as it is today. And even though my sense of freedom, passion, and love for my career and life came with challenges, setbacks, and a lot of sacrifices, it was well worth it.
But my life has not always been on a positive trajectory. I lived an unhappy and unhealthy life for many, many years. My blood pressure and cholesterol levels were so high I needed emergency care several times throughout my adult life. I suffered from chronic stress which manifested itself in so many ways I would shut down and go into depression. At one point in my life, I was technically considered obese. I was spiritually dead and emotionally disconnected from life, loved ones, and worse, God.
One morning about 10 years ago during one of my early morning workouts, it hit me, I had enough of being miserable and I was determined to take control of my life, health, and happiness. I am still on a life long journey of better health and happiness and I am loving every minute of it.
Early in the process as I started to research how to get my life on track, what I noticed was that unlike women who have a plethora of information readily available to them on how to improve every aspect of their lives and how to navigate through life’s challenges; I did not see the same opportunities for men. As Michael Scott from The Office once said, “Where’s my Oprah moment?”
My goal is to blog on issues related to health and lifestyle and everything in between for men over the age of 40. We have questions regarding health, spirituality, relationships, finance, career, style, and other topics and we want our Oprah moment to find answers all in one place without going from place to place or site to site.
You and I together will make a positive change in our lives.
