I strongly believe that we humans complicate things way too much. We have more gyms, health clubs and health foods available and we have more disease and obesity. We have more elaborate security systems and we have more crime. We have strong and multiple education systems and we have more children taking to drugs and other illegal activities. We have more money and less..time to care about our health.
We must understand that our bodies are built differently. What works for someone else, may not work for you. Fitness is a result of so many factors: Your lifestyle, genes, the food you eat, the kind of exercise you choose, the amount of sleep you get, and most importantly, your mental attitude and the kind of goals you shape for yourself.
The concept of fitness, health and living has gotten twisted and complicated by man and has become expensive over time. It’s ironic how we complicate our lives more and more every day. We strive to earn more and we neglect our health which later becomes a liability for us and our loved ones.
I had once counseled a businessman who has built an empire over the years, and he mentioned how he achieved success, fame, and fortune but, neglected his health along the way. Today, his knees and back ache every morning and through the day. Simple enjoyments in life, like a walk in the park with his grandchildren or a game of ball with his nephew, has become arduous. He regretfully spoke about his money being of no use at this stage in his life.
How many of us know someone like this?
It comes down to valuing and doing the simple things in life, like treating our bodies with respect. Without the use of our body and mind, we have little.
Do you know what your life goal is? You will be surprised at the amount of people who do not know what they want or what their life goal is. That’s not a bad thing. If you have one, make sure that your health is one of the goals and if you don’t have a goal, you can start off with ‘your health’ being one of them.
For whatever your life goal is, you need a healthy body, mind, and soul to achieve it. You need your health to live a complete and whole life.
My intention is clear. It is to share and receive knowledge and wisdom that can help humans ‘prevent’ and ‘cure’ with food and nature. It is my desire to be able to motivate people to get fit, build healthy lifestyles and contribute towards a healthier planet.
