Spend Time to Get Time: Take care of yourself to live a longer life.
We all know how important consistent exercise and proper nutrition are. By now, you have probably heard it over a hundred times.
In a study conducted between 2007 and 2008, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention found that over 33% of adults age 20 and over were obese.
It’s wild, isn’t it? Just to put this figure into perspective. Think about your plumber, your doctor, and your accountant. If this statistic is applied to those three people, then one of them is obese. Now repeat this process for the entire US population. It gets to be pretty out of hand. All those people live lives that are affected by obesity.
You also have to realize that these results are from over four years ago. Today, how high do you think that percentage is?
Where is the disconnection between what people know and what they actually do? It’s important to remember that people are usually more emotional than they are logical. That’s why people use excuses. If they don’t “feel” like they are emotionally prepared to do something, they won’t do it. It doesn’t matter what the benefits are.
