Imagine a world where all the power of change, in regards to our health actually existed… Guess what!? It does exist- and we as humans have every tool that we need to change. That might be a shock to some, but it is true none the less. We have the power to change. We have the ability to think, learn new skills and adapt to our surroundings. It sounds simple enough.
But even I wasn’t always that way, especially when it came to my doctor. Especially when I was a kid, whatever my doctor said- was gospel. The thought of questioning my doctor in any way never ever crossed my mind. After all, they went to medical school and have a degree-or two. So the thought of questioning anything is almost sacrilegious.
In modern times , since becoming a health coach and obtaining a few other certs. As I’ve not only coached, but watched society. It seems as though that society has all but given up on their health. As though to say, we have given the power that we had and given it over to another. Now I realize that what I’m saying is scandalous and I honestly don’t mean it to be that way.
I’m not even saying be an ass or combat your doctor of everything, what I am saying is that, you have what it takes to be healthy. And you don’t have to spend a lot of money to do so. With moderate exercise and adequate nutrition, we can start to take back our health. If you are an over weight person, you don’t have to go crazy in the gym. Just start taking 3-20 minute walks every day, eat protein, eat some leafy greens and some berries, drink water and cut out the processed junk. Bingo!
Obviously, change takes time, but if you start the journey now, you will see results. The same goes for anyone, regardless of their goals. If you’re one that maybe has fear about going to the gym, that’s okay too and it’s not the end of the world. Your home or anywhere that you are at can become your gym. You can do body weight exercises, use a kettle bell, resistance bands and so on. You can build muscle, fortify your immune system, attack body fat and become the healthiest person you can be.
That should be everyone’s goal.
The goal should be to keep you out of the doctors office. (not because all doctors are evil)
The goal should be to change life style, not medicine-medicine-medicine.
Guess what!? We can do all of that today. We can take the power back!
