Time to Take Charge

You probably hear people say it all the time: “I don’t have time to exercise. I’m busy. I have too much going on.” Whether you believe these to be excuses or reasons isn’t the issue in this blog. This isn’t about condemnation. This is about change and improvement of quality of life. Why is it that we make time for/prioritize literally EVERYTHING else in life and save our health for last? We will literally go until we drop and to what end? So that we are no longer physically capable of doing everything that we THINK outweighs taking care of ourselves?

Here’s the reality: NOTHING OUTWEIGHS TAKING CARE OF YOURSELF. If your health isn’t important enough to make time for I don’t know what is. The analogy of thinking of your body as a car is good one for a reason. Our vehicles are crucial to everyday life. We are heavily dependent on them and they get us to every destination we need to frequent on a daily basis. All of those things are also true about your body; even more so, in fact. Well, we don’t neglect to properly look after our vehicles for fear of losing a commodity of life that we heavily depend upon and the great cost that will later come with fixing the damage. Your body is NO DIFFERENT THAN THAT CAR.

If you keep neglecting to move your body, eating the wrong things, loading up on sugary beverages, not getting proper rest, etc eventually you will feel the effects of “neglecting your vehicle” and the cost of fixing what’s wrong (specialist consults, bloodwork, outpatient procedures, surgeries and the like) will FAR EXCEED the expense of getting your car fixed. Health is a choice. You have options. Start where you are. Rome wasn’t built in a day so don’t put unrealistic expectations on yourself. Set small goals and get after them one at a time. It’s time to take charge of your health before it’s too late.
