Year-Long Motivation for Health & Fitness
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.
