“If you don’t make time for health now, you will have to make time for disease later.”
Simple yet hard truth about our society today. We live in an instant gratification culture where we want what we want, and we want it now. There is little to no thought for the results it will produce later in our lives, our relationships, or our bodies. For example:
- Buying that expensive dress now will result in having financial difficulty at the end of the month if you cannot afford it.
- Eating the popcorn and ice cream at the movie now will result in a little extra around the waist by thursday.
- Yelling at a friend in front of a crowd now about something bothering you may result in the loss of that friend tomorrow.
Fun Fact of the day: Other countries language has futuristic thinking embedded into their vocabulary, subconsciously making that group of people prepare and think about the future. In America, the english language is very present minded, making it easier for us not to think about future consequences.
So why the hell does all this matter?
It matters because the way we as a culture feed our bodies with boxed food, trans fats, and sugar packed goodness will lead into problems such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and Alzheimers later; even though the instant gratification is yummy goodness now.
Think about this for a moment: Is there something you have done in your past that is affecting you now relationally, physically, emotionally, financially, or professionally? If you had the chance to go back and tell yourself to stop or change direction would you?
Did you know you can still do that?
You can be that change right here, right now for your future self. You don’t have to have the regret of not taking care of yourself now and have to live with disease, body pain, and hardship later.
Make the change and decide today to take care of yourself by eating wholesome foods, getting rid of crap that’s bad for your health, and start moving more.
It’s simple. You’re right, it’s not easy, most things worth doing are never easy. But it is simple to know what you should do for your future self so you don’t have to live with the regret and pain later.
