Is this Good or Bad News? Fitness in Galveston
The choices you make every day are moving you in the direction of a future which you can predict with significant accuracy… …And your mindset determines the choices that you make. According to Dr. Monte Ladner, M.D., it is without dispute that you can reduce the chances that you will be stricken with a major chronic disease by 80%. These major diseases include cardiovascular disease, diabetes, stroke and cancer.
Dr. Ladner outlines the four lifestyle habits that determine whether or not you can count yourself in the segment of people that enjoy this protection from disease:
- Not smoking
- Exercising at least 30 minutes every day
- Eating a healthy diet which contains large amounts of vegetables
- Keeping your weight down
Do you want this protection? Do you meet the above criteria? If so, you MUST understand that your present mindset impacts your future health!
Your mindset is a critical component in determining where you fall in the risk of being sick or healthy, strong or frail. Every day you make decisions that directly impact how healthy you will be now and in the future… What sort of decisions have you been making lately? If your mindset is centered upon long-term health and vitality, then you will make decisions that increase the odds that your future will be full of health and strength. You will get off the couch and exercise, you will resist the chips and brownies, you will actively pursue healthy food, and you will make sure that your weight is at a healthy amount. If, on the other hand, your mindset is centered upon instant gratification, you will make decisions that increase the odds that you will follow the path that most Americans are on and have a future that is characterized by painful disease, reduced mobility and dependence upon ever-increasing medication. 🙁 Let the future determine your present mindset. Try this… Spend some time thinking about how you want to feel in 10, 20, or 40 years.
- What kind of 40 year old do you want to be?
- How do you want to feel physically when you are 50?
- Would you like to be a 60 year old who works out daily and feels 20 years younger?
- Where will you be when you’re 70, 80, 90, or even 100? Will you be in wasting away in an “old folks home” not knowing who you’re own family members are, or will you just be rotting in a grave?
Personally, I want to be full of life, with loads of energy, enjoying the things I love to do and the people I love to do them with… Let the image of what you WANT create your mindset right now… What do you need to change?
