So you think you’re healthy

Most people think they’re healthy. They say, “I  try to eat well, exercise regularly, control stress, and get enough sleep.” But guess what? They’re kidding themselves. And with serious consequences to their health and quality of life.

More than half of Canadians have a chronic condition such as, diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis, heart disease, or cancer. As a nation we are undernourished, overweight, unfit, weak, anxious, and sleep deprived.

People typically underestimate how much they eat and how much stress they’re under. They overestimate how often and how intensely they exercise. And while sleep is a priority in theory, in reality it gets sacrificed almost nightly.

Most people need to get real about what they say is truly important to them, and what it takes to achieve the goal. For example, if you want to lose weight, then you must understand the full extent of that commitment: a complete dietary overhaul, an absolute minimum of four days a week of moderate to high intensity exercise and six hours of sleep nightly, and positive self-talk strategies.

If you think that sounds too hard, like it’ll take too much time, or too much energy, then prepare yourself for a life of aches, pain, and fatigue, to name a few. Unfortunately you’ll have no shortage of company.
