Sounds a bit cliched but how many of us really embrace the fact that our health is our greatest asset? According to national statistics this is definitely not the case. Most of us eat on the run, find our meals at any drive through, don't exercise enough, and don't have adequate leisure time. Why is this?
It seems that time perception is greatly skewed in our culture. We tend to believe that working more and working harder at the expense of our personal health and wellbeing will make us happier and more prosperous. We believe it's an act of selfishness to make our health our priority. Even more detrimental is that we take our health for granted, as if it were something that we can put off until some imaginary future date where we can then deal with it.
This type of mindset can definitely lead to trouble. Most chronic diseases take many years of neglect to manifest in the body. It's not like you wake up one day and have clogged arteries, or diabetes, or cancer. They come about from years of inattention to your most valuable asset - you guessed it.
But the good news is, it's never, ever, too late to start. I'd welcome any questions from any of you as to how I can help lead you in the right direction. Good luck!
