Health and wellness can be overwhelming, I know this. I see it on people's faces during my corporate wellness talks. Or maybe that is because I talk really fast. But often I will get people make remarks in these talks like "Well I'm screwed!" or "What can I eat then?" And for many people the topics that I talk about are a complete lifestyle change from where they currently are. But don't let that discourage you, everyone has to start somewhere. Even I learn things all the time that I didn't previously know, and discover areas that I can improve on, or need to change. Wellness is a journey not a destination, which is also true of many other things. But sometimes I sense that discouragement from where a person currently is in their health journey or being overwhelmed by the new information makes them tune out, give up, and close in. Don't let that be you! Stretching and challenging yourself is the only way you can grow. Your health is a reflection of your current lifestyle. If it is not the best, then it is probably wise to listen to some info you have never heard before. Some of the things in my talks also sound radical, to most lifestyles it is, but that is exactly what we need. Radical change. Just look at the statistics. 1 out of 3 will get heart disease. 1 out of 4 will develop cancer. If you are doing everything that everyone else is doing what results should you expect? What's the definition of insanity again? Repeating the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Change is never easy, people get comfortable with where they are, but you may need to get uncomfortable in order to drastically improve your health. And at the end of the day there is nothing else more valuable.
