When it comes to a healthy body, there are four things that are essential: greatly eliminating toxin exposure, nutrition, stress management, and exercise. I’ve come up with an easier way of describing this interaction with our environment. It comes down to what you: put on (toxin exposure), put in (nutrition), keep in (bottling up stress), and work out (exercise). Doing all four well is a lifestyle, not a temporary six-week rally.
Perhaps what you “keep in” is the most unassuming factor. However, it’s equally as important. Just like you cannot eat well for one day and expect to lose thirty pounds of excess weight; you also cannot “destress” well for one day and expect that to carry you from that day forward. It must be a daily lifestyle of not bottling up stress.
Again, all four must be operating at maximum effort daily. And for this reason, people will always struggle because that involves discipline and motivation. People are often motived by money, sex, and power. But few are disciplined and motivated about physical health. They might say they are, but we only need to look at the statistics of most people to see what they truly desire. Let’s change that today. Let’s get better about what we: put on, put in, keep in, and work out.
