This Year Be Healthier Than Your Car

by

“If I’d known I was going to live this long, I’d have taken better care of myself” – Mickey Mantle

Live a Long Healthy Life

Time is limited and we cannot control how much we are going to get. However, we do know that health maintenance requires personal responsibility. Abusing ourselves will likely cause premature death or years of suffering in poor health.

We can choose to stop consuming a nutritionally poor diet that creates chronic illness and steals precious years of our lives. Science has already proven that a healthy diet and lifestyle can prevent crippling heart disease, diabetes, stroke, autoimmune disease, inflammatory bowel disease, arthritis, and many forms of cancers. The best health maintenance occurs when people make up their minds to take care of themselves and age gracefully with vitality until the end.

Cars and Health Maintenance

I asked my mechanic how often I should change the oil in my car and he said, “it depends on how long you want your car to last.” Although the manual recommended an oil change every 5000 miles, he recommended that I change the oil every 3000 miles, if I wanted the car to stay in great shape.

Think about what would happen to your health if you started taking care of your body with as much, or more, discipline and commitment than you devote to your car. Without thinking twice, you would select the right type of fuel, allowing your body to perform at its best. No way would you consume stuff just because it was convenient. Processed food, chemical-laden junk, cancer-causing meat, and dairy would not touch your lips. You’d think only about the purpose of the food as fuel. Would you create excuses to eat foods that you make you sick? I don’t think so. That cheat day would no longer make sense.

Don’t Settle

Great outcomes arise from consistent effort and the right plan. This is what I tell my clients, because I am committed to working with people who have made up their minds to take action and get great results.

This year, do not settle for mediocre or poor health. Commit to doing whatever it takes to live a long healthy life.

Happy New Year!
