If you didn’t know how old you were, how old would you think you are?
One of the most common responses, or should I say excuses, people have for not doing things after the age of forty is, “not at my age.”
What? Age is just a number. No way did you let age stop you when you were a youngster and wanted to prove to yourself and others what you were made of.
Even more frustrating is how often a medical professional or the pharmaceutical industry brainwashes people into believing they need to learn to “live with it” and take medications for the rest of their life! Seriously? No thank you! Drugs and surgery should be the last resort not the first choice. Watch the trailer of the movie documentary: “Fork over Knives”.
Many people today epitomize Mickey Mantle’s famous quote, “If I knew I was going to live this long, I would have taken better care of myself.”
People may be living longer today but with what level of Quality of Life? Small daily choices, over time, have an impact financially, physically, psychologically, either positively or negatively.
Good health, or poor health, is a process that occurs over time. Many will attempt to exaggerate the “genetic” factor in a person’s health. Actually, genetics are less than a 10% factor, whereas, 90% of our good or bad health can be contributed to a person’s lifestyle.
Our actions speak louder than words. Studies have shown that over 80% of habits have been formed prior to the age of twenty. What lifestyle habits are you sharing with your children and family?
The TCOY Philosophy empowers one to live a fuller life with health independence and a zest for life. Rather than having a “why me” attitude, you choose to be pro-active and embrace life’s journey. Take the “why not me” attitude. Seize the day!
Aging is inevitable, but how you age is not. I welcome the opportunity to mentor and coach you on your total wellness path. If you don’t take care of your body, where will you live? If not now, when?
