Health And Happiness Go Hand-In Hand

by | Sep 26, 2016 | blog

Hi Everyone,

This week’s blog is about health and happiness. If you haven’t started your journey towards better health, you may be concerned about flavor, texture and taste, when modifying you’re eating habits.

You may be worried that healthy food will be bland and unsatisfying, or you may be concerned about a higher grocery bill cost? You could also be wondering if you have to give up everything, that you currently enjoy eating, in order to be healthy?

All of these things are myths and fallacies. Let’s just be truthful, they are all excuses.

Your journey towards improved health and wellness begins the minute you decide that nothing will stop you from being healthy and happy.

The next thing you need to develop is a realistic plan.

I’m going debunk the excuses we might make about the cost of getting healthy.

It is time to take a serious look at the expenses of healthcare and preventive care. Healthcare is one of the fastest rising costs in America.

In order to lower your risk of incurring higher healthcare costs, in the grand scheme of things, eating healthier is less expensive.

We have to realize that by adapting to a healthier lifestyle, we are committing to a long-term lifestyle change.

This will also benefit our health and longevity. If we refuse to make the changes necessary in order to lead a healthier and happier life, it is only a matter of time before we become sick or find out that we could have prevented an illness.

We control our own destiny when it comes to making healthier choices.

I’m not pointing the finger or asking anything of you that I haven’t already asked myself. I had this same conversation with the man I see in the mirror. I don’t judge anyone. However, I will do everything in my power to help others, help themselves.

If someone is suffering from a non-preventable illness or ailment, maintaining healthy habits is imperative.

Virtually every recipe you enjoy has a healthier alternative recipe for that same dish.

It is possible to achieve a state of health and happiness. My faith helps to keep me centered in both.

See You Next Week!
