Optimal health is an active participation sport. And you need to be excellent at it. There are no participation trophies here. You can’t just do THINGS. You have to be doing the right things, at the right time, specific for you!
Sickness, on the other hand, is passive. You can get there on accident or neglect.
Each day you get to choose which path you take and it literally begins with how well you slept, followed by how you woke up. Fail in these 2 areas and the rest of your day is done. This is where 95% of my patients fail.
You need to do the right things at the right TIME. This is the primary reason why people may eat healthy, but remain in sickness!
Some people just give up all together and some don’t even believe there are things to do in order to remain healthy.
Step 1: stop worrying about sickness and disease. Focus on winning at health
Step 2: structure your day that is conducive to a healthy lifestyle. Mornings are the most important. Wake up when the sun rises, have gratitude thoughts, get some sun exposure, and then plan your day. Look at the things on your calendar and ask yourself “does this add or subtract from my life”
Step 3: visualize your day. What will you do? See yourself doing it. What will you eat? See yourself eating it. What exercises will you do? See yourself moving!
This is just a basic outline, but the main thing is that you must control your day so that you can control your health! If you just live life haphazardly, you’ll get beat down in our modern way of life.
