Your Most Valuable Asset Is…
I find it easy to work out when I want to look fit for an event such as a wedding that is a few months away. Or even before I was married I found the time to hit the gym. However. I have found after the event has passed and after being married there is just a lack of motivation to be fit. Maybe its complacency. It could also be that there is no target to reach.
When there is no target to reach. You begin to drift. Many couples after a few years of marriage have that mindset that I’m married now so I can binge eat at Krispy Kreme once a week. After a few months that will take its toll. I know because I was that guy. I would wait for the Krsipy Kreme Hot light to turn on and rush in for my box of warm soft doughnuts and eat it most or all by myself and leave one doughnut for my son.
One important thing to keep in mind is that as you age your body’s metabolism slowly declines. To slow down that process as much as possible you have to be consuming good foods such as fruits and vegetables. Getting out and walking and being active is a must. Our bodies are precious so it has to be taken care of so it can take care of us. Here are simple pointers to keep looking good and feeling good.
- Go for a walk. If you don’t find the time for a walk make your self go up and down your stairs as you do household chores. Just keep moving.
- Eat more greens. This was something that was hard for me to get accustomed to. I have felt much better with less aches and pains and more energy after eating more greens after making this a habit.
- Eat more fruit. Find your self a favorite fruit and start eating everyday. I love apples but I have started to eat more avocados. Now I can keep up with my 6 year old.
- Drink more water. Drinking water is drinking life for our bodies. Most of our body is made up of water. Be sure to subtract the sodas, juices and energy drinks that pour sugar into us. It’s bad for your teeth and increases the chances diabetes.
Its easy to take our bodies for granted and think it will always going to hold up. Just like a car and house get old so do our bodies. We must do all we can to now. In turn it will help us feel better now and later.
