Life is uncertain. It's easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the Holidays and forget how important it is to just slow down. This weekend I am challenging all of you to unplug. Slow down, step outside of yourself and look around. Think about what you truly need and what you can live without. Your list of needs will probably include family, friends, shelter, food and faith. Do you have your health on that list? Too often we underestimate how important our own health and wellness is and it becomes less of a priority. For some reason, it feels selfish to spend time "working" on improving our own health. But in reality, the opposite is true. If you love your family and want to give them the best life possible, you need to keep your own health and wellness at the top of that list.

Chances are, if you're under the age of 40, you haven't given much thought what life would be like for your family and friends if you suddenly became ill. Chronic illness can strike anyone at any age. And suddenly you may find yourself dependent on others for care. This weekend, I challenge you to think about how important YOU really are to everyone around you. Make your health and wellness a priority now, before a crisis happens.

Fitness and food are the best preventative medicine

Even the healthiest of people can become sick. There's no guarantee that exercising and eating healthy will prevent us from ever becoming ill. But it really is your best defense. Studies show that you can fight and manage most chronic conditions like heart disease, diabetes, chronic inflammation and autoimmune disease in part through regular fitness and modifying your diet.




Don't wait for a health crisis to happen to make changes...act now!

What's your plan? Even the busiest of people can adapt to a healthy lifestyle, it just takes a little bit of planning.

  • Decide how much time you have to workout? You can get a very effective workout in as little as 30 minutes a day. When you stop and think about it, a small sacrifice like getting up a half hour earlier or spending less time on social media can allow you to fit a simple workout in.
  • Schedule fitness like it's your job! Make a meeting with yourself and remind yourself that your half hour workout is as important as a meeting with your boss. Get it done.
  • Be mindful of your eating. Learn about clean eating and start replacing bad eating habits with healthy choices. For example, start by limiting or eliminating sugar. Replace soda with water or unsweetened ice tea.
  • Eat 3 meals and 3 snacks every day. Plan meals and prepare them ahead of time. It helps to save time and money. Keep healthy snacks on hand at work and in your car to prevent temptation to eat processed, junk and fast foods.
  • Don't skip breakfast. Breakfast sets the tone for the entire day. Skip it and you will find yourself craving food (usually carbs and sugar) all day long. A good breakfast is a combination of protein and complex carbs like oatmeal and berries; eggs, whole grain English muffin and fruit; or a granola bar, banana and milk.
  • Make your family and friends aware that you are trying to improve your health. If they are aware of how important it is to you they will support you.
  • Join a an online challenge group or start your own. Online challenges are a fun and convenient way to stay accountable. Challenge groups make getting fit easy because the group follows a step-by-step fitness and nutrition plan. No guesswork, just follow the plan each and every day and before you know it, clean eating and fitness will become automatic,
