Quantum Quote: “When we talk about people who are concerned about the environment and look at the macro scale of what’s happening in the world, it can really make you a little bit crazy. The only way to really deal with that is to start within, make your own small impact, and know that you’ve done your part.”

Today, we explore how one family made the transition in their single-family home in a suburb just outside of New York City. 

Sung Pak is an American immigrant success story. Sung is a renowned functional neural mechanic specialist, better known as a brain trainer. He trains the brain to create movement efficiency and control pain, helping people with neurological illnesses like Parkinson’s improve their lives and training athletes to achieve peak performance. 

Sung’s resiliency philosophy extends to his family’s efforts to have an impact on climate change by starting at home. Sung shares his family story about why they move to solar electricity and geothermal heating and cooling and how they saved money doing it.
