Health is a mindset

This isn’t going to be a typical article that usually talks about fitness and or nutrition related.

This is about mindset.

Honestly I think this is where people struggle the most on their fitness journey..

Not the food.

Not the exercise.

Not the supplements.

The mindset.

What do I mean?

I mean when you wake up in the morning, what are the things that you are mentally prioritizing in the day?  What are you thinking about?

More people than ever fall into the habit of eating whatever tastes good and or is convenient, go to work for 8 hours a day, spend time with family, and go to sleep during the week.

Health has become a secondary thought until it has to be a first thought because of health issues that have been neglected because of all of the things you aren’t doing for your health because your priorities are elsewhere.

Health should never be secondary.  You live in your body 24/7.

Believe it or not, taking care of yourself is one of the most unselfish things you can do.

How?  Taking care of myself sounds selfish?


Think about it in this way.

Think about how having bad health could affect everyone else around you.

Maybe it would prevent you from doing an activity you love to do with your loved ones.

Maybe it would make you a burden to your partner because of your physical limitations.

Maybe it would make you not live as long as you’d like so you could see your kids and or grandkids hit their milestones.

I know those statements are heavy but for every person that is going through tough times from a health standpoint probably wishes they would’ve done things differently.  Not everything is 100% preventable but statistically speaking if we do the things like eating healthy and exercising daily it puts us at a lower risk of those scenarios happening.

This is personal to me since I lost my father back in March of 2023.  He was 69 and was an all around great person who I loved with all of my heart who I think about every single day.  He was an amazing father who is still my hero to this day but his health cut his life a little short.  I truly believe that if he made different lifestyle choices that he would still be here today.

From that perspective health is so much more than aesthetics.  Its quality of life.  It’s feeling the best you can be in your body.

Take a second and visualize yourself where your body is as healthy as it can be(age doesn’t matter) and how life would be different.

Let that sink in.

Think about how much better you would feel about yourself.

It does require the mindset of taking small steps over a long period of time and being consistent.

Start eating a little better.

Start exercising more regularly.

Prioritize your health daily.  Do this consistently and your life will change for the better. Guaranteed.
