What are you waiting on?
Are you waiting to develop a chronic disease like cancer, heart disease or diabetes before you really get serious about getting on the right track?
Do you feel in the back of your mind that you are “different” from others who had health issues, and therefore, it probably will not happen to you?
Is your trigger to take care of yourself going to be a heart attack or a stroke…after which it could already be too late?
Are you waiting until “the time is right” before you start eating right and exercising?
Really, what are you waiting on?
Sometimes, we like to wait for certain things to happen before we really decide that we are going to make healthy lifestyle changes. Perhaps a high school reunion approaches, or we hear that a friend got sick, or maybe we hit a milestone age. Ha…sometimes, we do not even know what we are waiting on.
Honestly, the “right” time usually never comes, and also, taking care of yourself is not even a matter of us being ready to do it; it is a matter of needing to do it. The human body is wonderfully built and works great when it is provided with its simple needs (water, rest, exercise, good food, etc.), but they can only cope so long after our daily abuses to them.
To cut to the chase, if a healthy life is what you desire, why wait? Even if you feel like you may fail, do not let that stall you from starting. Your quality of life is worth it. Your family is worth it. Don’t wait until you are afflicted to wish you had done something.
Why not today?
