This is the time of year when the natural daylight diminishes Bottle of Wine by Fireplaceand the weather turns cooler and wetter.  We feel our energy levels drop, we become less active and we just want to curl up by a warm fire, watch TV and eat (or have a glass of wine).

Motivation – Easy or Hard?

What is MOTIVATION?  Derived from the Latin word "MOVERE" which means "to move", it's the processes that account for an individual's intensity, direction and persistence of effort towards attaining a goal.

Synonyms:  motive, inspiration, inducement, cause, impetus
2.  the state or condition of being motivated or having a strong reason to act or accomplish something:  "We know that these students have a strong motivation to learn."

However, one of the other readings that's not routinely tested for, but was done for a recent test, is "c-reactive protein" or CRP.  An increase of this in your blood is an indicator that there is some inflammation in your body.
