The Importance of Good Health

It is heard by us that “Eat less, and exercise more.” But how many of us say, “I’ll do that tomorrow” or “I’ll start my diet next week?” We tend to think we’re unbeatable and would rather indulge today than follow healthy diets and get regular exercise for something that may not pay off for years.

Committing to a healthy lifestyle takes dedication – no one will argue with that. The key to staying on track with good health is to look to the future. Although sometimes it’s hard to live past today, we will not truly understand the effects of the decisions we are making unless we determine how we want our lives to be in the future.
Most people go through a serious medical event at some point in their lives; broken hips, strokes, bypass surgery, or cancer is common. Individuals who eat right and exercise throughout their lives will delay these events between 7 and 13 years. Think of all you could accomplish in that amount of time. Not to mention the medical bills and medication costs that will pile up.

By investing a little bit of time and energy today, you are insuring a full, rich life well into old age. Regular physical activity and a healthy diet actually stop the process in your cells that leads to chronic diseases.
So when you think about the importance to stay healthy, try to look toward the future. You’ll thank yourself later.
