HOW "THE HOLIDAYS" CAN KNOCK 25 YEARS OFF YOUR LIFE!
Ah, The Holidays." A time for joy, peace, family, friends, giving, love, and MORE STRESS!!
Most people call November and December "The Holidays." Because it's "The Holidays," people tend to get irresponsible and careless. You eat mass quantities, put all sorts of horrible foot and drink into your body, exercise less (if at all), miss doctor appointments, spend too much money, and put self improvement goals off until after "The Holidays."
If you add to these two months all of the other times you tend to blow off your health, for example; anniversaries, other holidays, birthdays, weddings, weekends etc.., you are basically being irresponsible for your health (and many other areas of your life) approximately three months out of the year.
By the time you are forty years old, you will have spent ten years doing serious, possibly irreparable damage to your body. If you live to 100 that is 25 years of unhealthy living contributed to holidays. "The Holidays," are a time designated to celebrate the many joys of life and appreciate blessings. However, they have become a time dedicated to shortening life and destroying our innate expression of amazing and awesome good works of optimal health. We have created "The Holidays" to be an overall increase stressor in this country. It is time to look at "The Holidays" from a new perspective.
Socrates said, "The unexamined life is not worth living." Without question, one of the most important practices you must perform is re-assessment. You must look at yourself and at all the world from a fresh, new perspective on a regular basis.
Of all the thousands of sick and suffering people I have met, examined, and consulted, not once have I heard one of them say, "I wish I had done less for my health all these years."
What they do say, in every case is, I wish I would have met you, or someone like you, (blank) years ago." If you have met me, please take advantage of it and live the principles of a wellness lifestyle that I practice.
Enjoy this most sacred of Holiday seasons with all of your might. But, this year try to keep you and your family well in the process.
