Making good choices

Healthy living is about making the best choices you can on a daily basis to support a healthy and happy life.

We are all faced with choices everyday. What to eat, what to do, where to go, whom to surround yourself with, and the beliefs we hold in our minds and hearts.

There is a high rate of preventable illnesses around the world, and unfortunately here in America where we have the best access to medical care people are getting sicker instead of better. There is a reason for this. Everyone is looking for a magic pill to solve his or her problems. Most people wait until they are feeling sick before they take their health seriously.

The sedentary lifestyle we have grown accustom to dose more harm then good for our health, physically, mentally, as well as spiritually. Most of us get up drive to work, sit at our desks all day, drive back home, plop on the couch because you feel too tired to do anything else, at least for a little while.

Things like Diabetes, High blood pressure, and Fatigue, are caused by Obesity and are just a few of the PREVENTABLE illnesses people can avoid or cure with proper nutrition, education, and some smart lifestyle changes or choices.

There are numerous illnesses that have simple fixes really. There is an answer for pretty much any and every negative your body experiences.

If you or someone you know has 10, 20, 50 or more pounds to loose it can be done! I know personally how hard it can be. There was a time when I was considered obese; I had very limited mobility because I was wheelchair bound, so it was very difficult for me to shed the weight. Not only that but because OF the weight I got tired and short of breath fairly easily… I dropped over 50 pounds over a period of time. I tried the crazy diets just like everyone, but they do NOT work, and are even detrimental to your health!

I do NOT advise anyone to go on any diet the promises you that you will loose a massive amount of weight in a few short weeks. It’s not healthy, you WILL gain the weight back and then some if you don’t do it right. A couple pounds a week is a good rate. You didn’t gain the weight in a few short weeks, so to expect to loose the weight in a few short weeks… And KEEP IT OFF… is not realistic.

Stress is also a big cause of sickness. You may not be able to avoid stress, but with the right coaching you can learn how to manage and cope with stress in a very healthy way.
