Make Time To (Consistently) Relax

Michael Anthony | June 16th, 2017 | Blog, Personal Growth

The problem with consistent stress is that if we’re not careful, it consumes us. It raises our blood pressure, robs us of sleep, tempts us to eat poorly, keeps us from exercising, and diminishes the overall quality of our lives — and relationships. (Have you noticed how angry people seem to be these days?) The […]

An Open Letter to America: You Are Innocent Until Proven Guilty; the Michael Anthony Blog

My entire left arm and hand was 20% larger, spongy, and pale-blue, thanks to a […]


COURAGE IS HARD TO FIND THESE DAYS. AT LEAST IN THE REAL WORLD. It’s easy to find heroes and underdogs in movies and books, but try to find it in real life – in our own lives – and it becomes evident that fear is winning the day. What America needs is a resurrection of […]


I WAS INVITED TO THE WHITE HOUSE for yesterday’s Rose Garden ceremony to celebrate the National Day of Prayer. I did what I think you would have done if you were invited. I accepted and attended — and was blown away.* Prepared for the occasion, I drafted two letters – one for President Trump and […]
