Take Excellent Care of Your Physical Health
The key to happiness is a sound mind in a sound body.
We are living at a most wonderful time in human history in terms of longevity and physical fitness. You can live longer and live better today than has ever before been possible.
You must aim to live to be 80 or 90 or even 100 years old, in excellent health, and you can do it if you decide to.
✓ First, set a goal to live to be at least 80 years old. Then, look at your current health habits and ask yourself whether or not the way you are living today is going to get you to the age of 80 in great shape.
✓ There are three keys to living a long, happy, healthy life.
✓ The first is proper weight. Set a goal to get your weight under control and then remain lean and fit for the rest of your life.
The five-word formula for weight loss and physical fitness: Eat less and Exercise More.
✓ The second key is proper diet. Eat better foods and fewer of them. Eat more lean proteins, fruits, and vegetables.
Eliminate desserts, soft drinks, candy, and anything else containing sugar.
Stop consuming extra salt.
Stop eating white floor products.
Eat smaller portions and eat four or five times a day rather than 2 or 3 large meals.
When you can take complete control of your eating habits, you will find it easier to take control of your habits in other parts of your life as well.
✓ The third key to long life is proper exercise. This requires you to engage in vigorous physical activity approximately 200 minutes per week or an average of 30 minutes per day.
You can get all the exercise you need by simply going for a brisk 30-60 minute walk three to five days per week.
If you are really serious, you must join a health club or get some fitness equipment for your house and work out even more vigorously.
The key to excellent physical health and long life is to set clear, specific goals for your levels of health and fitness. Make a plan and then follow it every day.
If your financial goal is to become a millionaire, then your health goal should be to live as long as possible so that you can enjoy a wonderful lifestyle with your money.
Action Exercise: Identify one healthy habit that you need to develop to enjoy higher levels of health and energy. Perhaps it is eliminating deserts altogether.
Then set this as a personal challenge and resolve to discipline yourself until your new healthy habit is firmly entrenched.
