It may be common to have low energy, get sick a few times a year, and be five to ten lbs. over weight, but let’s not make the mistake of thinking these symptoms of an unhealthy lifestyle are normal… because they simply are not!
Sadly, most people fall into the category of “not really feeling healthy, but not really feeling unhealthy enough to make a change.” What people WILL do is much different than what they CAN do. Interestingly, most people don’t realize how unhealthy they are until they start to become healthier. This state of being “not really healthy, but not unhealthy enough to do anything about it” is a scary place to be in, because it only leads to one place…disease and dissatisfaction.
Most people gradually fall into an unhealthy lifestyle. I’ve never met anyone that has shared with me that they wanted to feel low energy, depressed and unfulfilled. But ‘life’ always seems to happen and the next thing they know, they are for lack of a better term ‘fat, sick and nearly dead.’ How does this happen?
It doesn’t happen overnight but rather for weeks, months and years. It’s a slow and gradual process that deceives. My purpose and mission is to help guide people out of this unsatisfying state of poor health. Because the truth is that we are born to be vibrant, healthy human beings. It’s our birthright.
Health is our greatest gift. Not convinced? Just ask someone who has recently lost theirs. It’s not pretty! Cancer, diabetes and heart disease wreak havoc on people and their families. The truth is that cancer, diabetes, and heart disease can all largely be prevented through making healthier lifestyle choices.
So why do so many wait till their health is on the line to finally make a change? I believe it’s also this deceptive state of “not really feeling healthy, but not really feeling unhealthy enough to do anything about it.” Do you fall into this category? Do you know you’re eating the wrong foods and making poor lifestyle choices, which only give you short term fulfillment at the expense of your health? If you do, this is your wake up call. It’s time to make a change, to finally say goodbye to fast food and hello to healthy food fast. Don’t wait till you’re diagnosed with cancer, diabetes, heart disease or worse. You have a choice. When you finally start taking better care of yourself is when you start experiencing what life really has to offer…more joy, more energy, more love, more fun and more success.
I have great news. It’s not too late to make a change. As a matter of fact, it’s really never too late, because small choices lead to big changes. Just like you don’t become over weight by eating one unhealthy meal, you don’t become vibrant and healthy by going on a temporary diet. It’s through making small, consistent LIFESTYLE changes that lasting impactful results are experienced! And you are worth it!
If you hope to bring health into your life in any kind of long-term committed way, you must connect with your “big why” or the deep tenacious reason that lies close to your heart for wanting true wellness of both mind and body. This reason must be attached to what you value in life and where you see yourself going. Only from connecting with this strong core reason and the value behind it does the strength and motivation spring to keep you committed to making the necessary small changes every single day.
We live in a world were disease and dissatisfaction are unfortunately becoming the norm. There is a better way. We must wake up to the realization that our lives are our most precious gift and start valuing them by taking action on becoming the healthiest, happiest, best versions of ourselves. We owe it to ourselves and the world.
