Quote for the Week on change

It’s difficult to change somebody’s perception of their own health when they hold the belief that their health is satisfactory. Most people don’t recognize that they’re sick, tired and unhealthy or they think humans are supposed to feel the way they do.

Sometimes sickness and lack of motivation to do things is attributed to lack of sleep, lack of coffee or a busy life. Other times age becomes an excuse to sit around all day. In reality, most of the time these aren’t the causes of lack of vibrancy. The real reason most individuals don’t have the drive and energy to do the things they would like is because they’re not healthy.We are too busy to notice we're unhealthya

The fact that the foods are becoming increasingly unhealthy isn’t the only problem with the Western culture. Another problem is that we cannot recognize the fact that the general population is sick, tired and unenergized. Not only are people “too busy” to take care of themselves, but they’re too busy to even realize the fact that they aren’t taking care of themselves! How can the problem be solved unless we actually recognize a problem as a problem?

There’s no such thing as healthy obesity. You don’t have to sleep all day if you’re over the age of 70. Take a step back and realize the fact that there’s something wrong. Sure, one added problem to your life seems like just another burden. But fixing this problem will relieve you of many of the other burdens you currently carry.

So, are you sick and tired of being sick and tired?
