What More Do We Need?

29 06 2011

When we are buffeted by the winds of drastic change, we sometimes need to change course. It never ceases to amaze me how many people when confronted by such, seem determined to sail straight into the maelstrom, resembling something akin to a salmon swimming upstream. And the reward is oft the same; an inglorious death. Recent studies have suggested that when many people are faced with a heart attack, a stroke, diabetes or cancer little real lifestyle change is made. The rub is that these little changes can have big impacts; exercising has innumerable positive benefits, adopting a healthful eating approach like our Grassroots Gourmet philosophy can feed body and soul, even just stopping smoking can cut recurrent heart attack risk by almost 40% in the first year following such an event. And the corollary applies; an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. So start by taking those first steps to breaking bad habits by realizing them for what they are, get a reasonable plan and start walking. Like life it is a journey, not a sprint to the end and if you don’t start walking now you may finish in a wheelchair.
