Lifestyle

 

'Health is a gift. It is up to each of us to seek out knowledge on how to provide for the body a lifestyle that is conducive to health and the body will do the rest.'  Joel Robbins, DC, ND, MD

 

It's become more complex to maintain a healthy, balanced lifestyle given our use of technology, late nights, environmental toxins, financial concerns, time constraints and the fast pace of modern day living.

We have an aging baby boomer population striving to stay youthful and vigorous while wondering if they have the finances to maintain the lifestyle they have become accustomed to.  I fit in this category.

The sandwich generation is caught between caring for aging parents and raising young children. I see this happening all around me.

Where Do You Fit?  

 

 

"Choosing healthy habits over unhealthy habits can be challenging, but it is easier than facing early aging of the mind and body."

  • Currently two-thirds of American children are deficient in more than two essential vitamins or minerals. 
  • Only 12% of American adults are exercising vigorously each week.
  • Two-thirds of Americans are believed to have sleep disorders.
  • "The $3 trillion we spend on health care in this country has very little to do with health.
  • Approximately 75% of the $3 trillion being spent on healthcare is caused by our lifestyles.
  • These rising healthcare costs and job security are major concerns and people are often foregoing retirement to make ends meet. 

 

 

Which Life Are You Designing? 

Sickness Industry:  products and services are provided reactively to people after they contract an illness, ranging from a common cold to cancerous tumors. These products and services seek to either treat the symptoms of a disease or eliminate the disease.

Wellness Industry:  products and services are provided for a proactive approach to health.  For those without an existing disease—to make them feel healthier, have more energy, look better, slow the effects of aging and to prevent diseases from developing in the first place.  And, for those looking to recover with prevention and self-care.

I'm choosing to take ownership of my health, lifestyle and well-being.  To live with passion and purpose, enjoying nature, family and frlends, connecting to people with kindness and generosity, living my life to the fullest with love and gratitude. I choose to invest in natural products and health service from the Wellness Industry!  And, I choose to make new friends, hear their stories and invite them to get informed about making the best choices for their healthy, balanced, filled with joy lifestyle.

 

 

Making small changes on a daily basis can have long-lasting ramifications for your health and well-being.
