Not being ill or stricken by disease does not equate to health or wellness. We agree with this definition from the World Health Organization: health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
As obesity levels continue to climb, and stress levels continue to escalate across the globe, there is an old Irish saying that is very apt for today's world: “No time for your health today; no health for your time tomorrow.”
Unfortunately, as a human race, we are rapidly eating our way into a global state of unhealthiness. In fact, we have now reached the point where in some countries there are more people dying from causes related to overeating than there are deaths attributed to under eating and starvation.
Our whole thinking about our system of healthcare needs to change. Medicine is not healthcare — food is healthcare. Medicine is sick care.
As soon as you incorporate this thinking into your individual life, your whole approach to eating will fundamentally change. Healthy eating is as pleasurable and fun as unhealthy eating, with better long-term consequences and benefits.
To help you remain motivated to increasing your health and fitness all year long, we have recently released 365 Motivational Quotes for Health & Wellness. The book is now available on Amazon in both paperback ($4.88) and Kindle ($2.99) formats.
Best wishes for making 2018 your healthiest and fittest yet.

Motivational Quotes to Help You Achieve Your 2018 Goals
Thanks to the self-help and personal development industries, there are probably more words written on success than any other subject.
We added to the literature on success with our book Project You: Living A Determined Life in which we explored various tips and techniques for achieving success across all seven key elements of life (those depicted in the image below).
The best definition of success undoubtedly comes from legendary UCLA basketball coach John Wooden, “Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.”
Thus, success is the ongoing process of becoming better...of striving to become the best that you are truly capable of being, in whatever endeavors you choose. Successful people are always expanding themselves — intellectually, spiritually, emotionally, or even physically (or at least health wise).
The road to success is also a journey that is always under construction. As you pass each milestone and marker along the way, and overcome the hurdles and obstacles placed before you, the journey becomes easier ─ provided the lessons of experience are learned and followed.
To help you remain motivated on your personal success journey in 2018, we have compiled a year's worth of motivational quotes in our new book 365 Motivational Quotes for Success. Get your copy today in paperback ($4.88) or Kindle ($2.99) formats.
Best wishes for continued success throughout 2018.
