I’m Dane Findley and my mission in life is to help others experience more daily joy through improved physical health.
My message is simple: it’s only in your thriving that you have anything to offer anyone – therefore, the best investment you can ever make is in your own health.
Professionally, I have a few key interests and talents:
- wellness coaching
- fitness training
- community marketing for luxury brands
- helping others invest in estate properties in year-round fair weather communities.
In my spare time, I cook simple paleo meals and read sword-and-sorcery novels.
The new course has launched!
“Silver and Strong: A Course for Getting Fit After Age 50” is now available. Feel fantastic again. This course is designed for the sole purpose of helping you get healthier quickly. You’ll see a visible difference.
13 Facts about Dane Findley
- I am Editor of the popular (and free) Quality of Life Newsletter. Each issue features a specific happiness strategy to help bring one’s joy up to the next level.
- For decades I have been passionate about Pilates.
- My partner David and I help those seeking to buy and sell lifestyle properties – high-concept estate homes for those who live boldly and follow their dreams.
- I have a masters degree in counseling psychology and have published over 100 digital articles, videos and podcasts on health and motivation.
- I was born and raised in California.
- One rainy Saturday afternoon as a young boy, I happened to see an old Tony Curtis movie on tv called The Rat Race – and it occurred to me for the first time that I was a “creative type.”
- I love people, yet I require enormous amounts of solitude in order to maintain my happy disposition (introverts recharge their batteries in isolation).
- For years, I lived on an off-the-grid, tropical island farm, where I showered outdoors in rainwater, and my electricity came from the sun.
- I get asked a lot of questions about freshly made green smoothies; blenders can help people at last reach that once-elusive goal of sneaking more vegetables into their daily diet (inflammation can be radically diminished by making key nutritional improvements).
- I wiggle my toes a lot – I’m a big believer in joy.
- Among my favorite novels of all time is Another Roadside Attraction – a quirky story that reveals how to allow happiness into your life even when you’re convinced you’ll never fully fit in.
- The most inspiring movie I’ve ever seen is a 1940s melodrama called Now, Voyager. It reveals a wounded person’s journey into empowerment.
- Even as a kid I was enthralled with the idea of open-air living and dreamt about living year-round in a fair weather climate.
Though in my professional life I am initiating, I was born essentially with the brain circuitry of a yin-energy male.
How that manifests is, that when I encounter someone likable and loaded with potential (which happens often), I feel a peculiar urge to cook that person a healthy meal and draw them a hot bath.
I mean that literally and metaphorically: my instinct is to organize a person’s home and daily lifestyle so that they experience a return of abundant physical energy and increased joy and motivation.
Even though I like people and feel a desire to be helpful, I recognize that many first-world people are overextended and therefore I choose to set healthy boundaries.
Moving into the orbit of an overextended person is like being sucked into a black hole. Even though I’m deeply curious about people and could happily listen to them talk about themselves, the reality is that most people are not able to reciprocate that level of listening.
People don’t mean to be draining, it’s just that they’re distracted and tired – and often they don’t even realize it.
My solution to this conundrum is to curate this website and load it with actionable resources that help others to experience more authenticity and fulfillment in their daily lives.
