If you told me a few years ago that I would start a blog about the state of health in our society, let alone anything, I would have laughed. But here I am, blogging. Blogging; using the social media's power to share some of my thoughts. Thoughts and observations regarding the state of health in our society. It's poor. And getting worse. Just go out to the mall on a Saturday afternoon and look around. But why?
With all the information regarding healthy lifestyles, foods, choices, alternatives, and awareness; I am continually amazed that the majority of people are still overweight and unhealthy. You can hardly turn on the TV, radio, or computer and not see or hear something regarding better health or weight loss. Maybe folks have been bombarded to the point of numbness. They just tune it out. Just another fad diet, another pill, another juice plan, another fast or cleanse. It's hard not to get discouraged with the "next best thing" that comes down the pipe line.
Everybody deserves to be healthy. I'm not saying that there are no good ideas and plans of action for better health and wellness. Or that I have found the only one that works. I have been blessed with good health. I was taught that the only way to keep what you have is to give it away. So it is my responsibility to share what I have learned and found along the way. You may agree or you may think I have no idea what I am talking about. You may get great results with what I share or you may see no benefit. Ultimately the results lay in your hands. I can only give awareness. It is up to the individual to make the choices.
Awareness is the greatest agent for change. Change comes down to making choices; the right choices. What are our health goals? How is your nutrition? The health topic is a mighty one. It can be overwhelming and incredibly frustrating. But I don't think there is a more important one. That is why over the next many weeks and months I will share bits and pieces of knowledge, information, motivation, and inspiration that can make a difference in your health and wellness. I'm not an expert and I hope I don't come off as preaching. I only speak from experience; real life experience.
I will close with the one question I always ask: Without your health, what do you have?
