Get Healthy and Stay Healthy

Get Healthy and Stay Healthy

 
     Right now the number one concern of Americans and everyone around the world is their health.  People are a bit frightened at the possibility of catching COVID 19 and becoming very ill.  Yes,  people are dying of this disease.
 
     If you look at the statistics carefully, we see that the overwhelming majority of people who will not survive this disorder are elderly and people with underlying health problems.  The ability to stay healthy and keep a strong immune system is largely up to us.
 
     The lifestyle we live, the foods we eat, the condition of our body, and our level of fitness, all play a huge role in our ability to stay healthy and ward off disease.  
This Pandemic is shining a bright light on those with underlying health disorders such as Hypertension, Diabetes, Obesity, and Heart or Lung disease.
 
     Each of these disorders can lead to a worse outcome if one contracts the Coronavirus.  How do we fend this virus off?  We work on getting our entire body healthier.  We eat more vegetables and fruits.  We avoid high carbohydrate foods and snacks and we exercise regularly.  Of course, hopefully it didn't take this pandemic to get you started, but better late than never.
 
     If you were already fit and lean, then you are prepared. Keep up the work.  If not, we have some work to do.  There is no way to get fit and healthy overnight, so don't attempt it.  That will lead to injury, pain, and a setback.  Do something today though.  Make an adjustment in diet.  Get in a walk.  Repeat this tomorrow and the next day.  Our bodies respond quite quickly to improvement.
 
     I've seen uncontrolled Type II Diabetics reverse their blood sugars to normal in as little as two weeks.  I've seen people lose up to 15 pounds of excess body fat in 2 weeks.  Though this is not required, getting started is.  Don't live in fear of a virus.  Live a life that will suppress the virus.
 
     This Coronavirus won't be the last virus or bacteria or germ our body has to confront.  Why not start preparation now to reduce risk from any contagious illness that comes at us now or in the future.  This is a wake up call.  This is a signal that we must live a more fit and healthier and leaner life if we want to continue to live life.
 
     We can extend our lives many quality years by taking action today and being persistent over the rest of our lives.  Now is the time to get our body ready for war with a virus.  Hopefully, you don't contract this virus, but if unfortunately it visits, have the body and immune system of a warrior and defeat it quickly.
 
     Be safe, follow the rules to avoid contracting Coronavirus, and Live Lean, Live Long, and Live Life to the Fullest!

Snack Yourself Thin

We need to fuel our body at the right time with the right amount of food. Often we eat way too many calories at a setting and turn on the fat production machinery in our body. Small snacks throughout the day and a lean and green meal do the trick.

Yes or No

Decisions drive our life in a direction. We can choose that direction by the decisions we make. Decisions should be simplified to a Yes or No answer. Learn how to make better decisions and live the life you want.

Adventure

Life is an adventure in itself. Sometimes we get stuck in a routine and forget to venture out to see new things, experience new experiences, and meet new people. We must resist getting stagnant and seek a life of adventure, even if its within us.

The Path to Excellence

We can all do better. We have many paths that we can choose to take in life. Each time we take a new path we can move in either a positive or negative direction in our life. Focusing on the positive little things daily can take us on the right path.

Regrets

We all have regrets in our life. What we want to do is start living a life that has no regrets from this point forward. We don't want to have regrets about our health when we get older. We can do things now to avoid the regrets of disease and illness.

Personal Power

We are in control of our lives. At least we are in control of how we respond to what happens in our lives. Our health and all the other aspects of our life can be taken charge of. Become the director of your life and get fit and healthy now.
