8. I try to meditate at least once a week, read books of a religious or spiritual nature and try to stay centered mentally and spiritually. I also try to balance work, workouts and fun time with family and friends. If one area gets out of balance, it can throw the other areas out of balance as well.
9. I am lucky that I don’t have to take any kinds of medications. Because of this, I focus my energies on preventative medicine. I eat good, nutritious food, I exercise regularly, I stay strong mentally, spiritually and socially, I see my chiropractor every four weeks and I get bloodwork, mammograms, colonoscopies and other preventative screenings. Hopefully, I won’t have to start any long term medicines anytime soon!
There is no magic pill, there is no perfect diet or workout that brings you instant weight loss or instant health. It’s small lifestyle changes added together and continued over time that will bring fitness that will last a lifetime.
