Whole Health and our freedom of choice

There’s a famous quote from Winston Churchill that says, “Healthy citizens are the greatest asset any nation can have.”1 We should reflect on this in the United States as we prepare to celebrate our day of independence.

We should think about all the blessings we have been bestowed, and be thankful for the countless freedoms we get to enjoy: the freedom to vote, the freedom of speech and the freedom of religion. We also have the freedom to choose how we care for ourselves and each other.

What does Whole Health look like to you?

Maybe it’s an understanding of how your body functions and responds to the environment. It could simply be a state of mind. Perhaps it means being balanced in all areas of your life … work, exercise, rest, and having a social network, family and friends. At PURE, we are on a mission to deliver Whole Health. One way is by providing products based on the best of science and nature. We believe in the body’s natural ability to heal itself, inside and out, and it all starts with giving the body what it needs.

Everything in our lives is directly affected by how we care for ourselves. We have the freedom to eat what we want, to get proper exercise, to surround ourselves with the right people, to get enough sleep and to avoid stress. It is up to us to make those decisions.

Remember that along with that freedom of choice comes the responsibility to extend that freedom into the lives of others. As a PURE Independent Business Owner, you know what health looks like and how to achieve optimal well-being, and it is your right to share that with others.

Apply Whole Health to your business, too.

To quote Winston Churchill again, “We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.”

As a servant leader, you lead by lifting others up. You understand that success means putting others needs before yours and helping them perform as highly as possible. It’s that leadership philosophy that we embrace at PURE.

So, as you gather with friends and family this holiday weekend, remember how lucky we are to have the freedom to choose a healthy lifestyle. Share that with the larger community and make an impact.

To help celebrate our freedom, buy one GoYin bottle and get one for only $4 at checkout, now through Friday, July 7, 2019.* A CORE4 product, GoYin can help you balance your mood and stress levels while enhancing your well-being.**

Remember the real meaning of Memorial Day

Memorial Day officially marks the beginning of summer as we fire up the grill and enjoy time together.  Many of us are celebrating graduations, picnicking and planning vacations.  It’s a time to revel in the sun and just feel good.

The three-day weekend brings out a lot of excitement, but it’s also time to remember the true meaning of the holiday. It’s a special day to mourn the brave men and women who sacrificed their lives defending this country. We’re reminded of the tremendous price Americans paid throughout history to preserve our democracy, our values and our way of life.

Memorial Day began as Decoration Day in the 1800s, a time to honor those who died in the Civil War. People celebrated by decorating the graves of the fallen. General John A. Logan of the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) designated May 30 as a day “for the purpose of strewing with flowers, or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village and hamlet churchyard in the land.”1

Originally, only soldiers who had died in the Civil War were honored. The first observance of the holiday after the Civil War was in Charleston, South Carolina on May 1, 1865.2  After WWI, the holiday extended honor to all Americans who have died while in military service. Their ultimate sacrifice is the reason for the freedoms we have today. We must not take those for granted.

Harry S. Truman said, “Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid. They have earned our undying gratitude. America will never forget their sacrifices.” No, we will never forget, and we can still make a difference by proudly supporting our veterans.

PURE invites you to give back with a simple dollar donation. A dollar might not seem like much, but it’s life changing to a veteran. As you prepare those hot dogs and hamburgers, take just a moment to visit livepure.com/giveback to support the Disabled American Veterans organization, American veterans and their families. They were there for you, be there for them.

Remember our heroes! They never die; they live in our memories!

Happy Memorial Day!

Getting to know Gray Gaulding

I recently had the chance to chat with Gray Gaulding, PURE Independent Business Owner (IBO) and NASCAR driver. Since it’s NASCAR Day, I thought what better time to get to know this athlete a bit better.

Gray has a passion for the sport, for the fans and for giving back. He is a pleasure to talk to and really knows his sport. He represents the PURE brand on and off the track each week and takes the products to improve his health and his performance.

Did you play with cars as a child? “Yes, I loved playing with cars. I played with Matchbox cars until I was about 10 years old, racing them around on the floor. I still have bags and bags of them in my house.”

What words do you think best describe you? “Happy! I would say I am happy 99 percent of the time. I am outgoing and humble and I tell a good joke every now and then.”

What’s the allure of racing for you? “Definitely the adrenaline rush you get when racing against the best competitors.”

If you could have any passenger in your car, who would it be, and why? “I would want Tiger Woods with me. I love golf and Tiger, in my mind, is the greatest athlete around. To ride with him would definitely be a bucket list item.”

Do you ever talk to yourself inside your car? What do you say? “Ha, you don’t want to know what I say! I can get pretty frustrated on the track because things don’t always go the way you expect them to.  Other times I’ll motivate myself, saying things like, “This is the time!’”

What is the biggest compliment you’ve ever received? “Once an older fan told me that I’m the most approachable race car driver he’s ever met. He said I’m humble and easy to talk to. This came from a fan who has been to numerous races and has met many drivers.”

If you had a day off to do anything, besides racing, what would you do? “We live in North Carolina and like to spend time at Lake Norman. My girlfriend and I like to go fishing and we bring the radio and just relax. Being outside is great for just chilling.”

If you could design your own racetrack, what would it look like? “The oval track is standard. I would create a road course with a fan zone, close to the garage. I would have concerts, bars, restaurants; yeah, my racetrack would cost the most money.”

Do you have a favorite racing story? “Yes! I still remember my first ride at the age of 18. It was Jeff Gordon’s last ride, efore he retired. I got to ride with him which is a day I’ll never forget.”

For those who can’t risk getting a speeding ticket, describe the feeling you get driving at speeds we can’t even imagine? “Well, when you’re going 200 miles per hour, there’s a great amount of danger at stake. As a race car driver, you don’t think of those things. You’re 3 inches from another car and anything could happen … a crash, you could blow a tire, or go airborne.”

If the president of NASCAR was an elected position, would you run and why? “I would absolutely run for president. Having been around racing my whole life, I know I’d be able to make the sport better for racers and the families. I consider myself a great leader, not a follower. I listen to others, and that would mean paying close attention to the needs of current drivers and fans. I wish that would happen!”

Gray’s favorite products by PURE are the GPS line, ENERGY and GoYin. We are thrilled to have him as part of our PURE family!

Good luck on the track!

PURE Destinations: Bermuda

Bermuda is a group of islands like none other — it’s where British culture blends with laid-back Caribbean beats and where pastel-colored homes, pink-sand beaches and green fairways dot the landscape. PURE is bound for this spectacular island getaway this August on the PURE Destinations 2019 Summer Cruise.

Bermuda, the main island, is only 22 miles in length and 2 miles across at its widest point, so no matter where you stand, you’ll have breathtaking views of blue for as far as the eye can see. Not just any blue, but the most beautiful turquoise blue!

The island is divided into districts, or parishes. Three major roads run from east to west: North Shore Road, Middle Road and South Road. This is the largest port on the island and where our cruise ship will dock, at King’s Wharf.

Points of Interest

Hamilton, the capital, is centrally located on the island. This is Bermuda’s financial center with a population of just over 1,000. Wave to Bermuda shorts-clad businessmen on their scooters making their way to work. Explore the town by foot and admire the brightly colored buildings. Excellent golfing and shopping opportunities abound as well as museums, art galleries and gardens. Notable things to see:

  • Bermuda Aquarium – discover Bermuda’s underwater ecosystem
  • Fort Hamilton – historic site with breathtaking views
  • Front Street – clothing, jewelry and souvenir shopping
  • Crystal Caves – discovered by boys looking for their lost cricket ball
  • Queen Elizabeth Park – garden with statues and monuments

St. George is a quaint town with cobblestone streets, historic buildings and colonial architecture. This is Bermuda’s former capital and a UNESCO World Heritage site. It is located on the east end of the island. Notable things to see:

  • Tucker House Museum – a look at early Bermudian life
  • St. Peter’s Church – oldest Anglican church in Western hemisphere
  • Tobacco Bay beach – underwater coral reefs
  • King’s Square – local gathering place
  • Fort St. Catherine – dioramas and antique weapons

The Royal Naval Dockyard is a 19-century fortress located at the west end of the island, in Sandy’s Parish. This historic site was used during the War of 1812. It was a strategic base for England in the Atlantic and an active shipyard during the First and Second World Wars. It is now home to shopping, dining and entertainment. Notable things to see:

  • Dolphin Quest – interactive encounter
  • National Museum of Bermuda – maritime and island history
  • Snorkel Park – see natural wonders of the sea
  • Clocktower shopping mall – galleries and shops
  • Bermuda Rum Cake Company – a traditional treat

Are you ready to check Bermuda off your bucket list? The 2019 Bermuda Cruise includes a six-day, five-night cruise sailing on August 3 aboard the Grandeur of the Seas.
