Unlocking Major Health Benefits

If I told you that you could take one pill every day...and it would lower your risk for all heart related deaths, lower your rate for cancer and diabetes, reduce depression and anxiety, improve your sleep and your sex life, not to mention make you look and feel better - would you be interested? I know what you’re thinking - what’s the catch? How much would this pill cost? What if the cost ranged from $0- $200 for a month’s supply BUT you had to take one pill every minute for 20 minutes every day. Could you do that if it meant all of those benefits listed above? Could you sit there and swallow all twenty of those pills - one every minute - for twenty minutes without fail each and every day. That would take a little bit of discipline, but look at everything you could gain! All kidding aside, if you haven’t figured out my little ploy - what I’m really talking about is not popping pills but rather performing some exercises. I wanted to reframe your way of thinking to show you not only how powerful exercising is towards our health but also how easy and cheap it really can be to do it. Like the pill example, all it takes is a little bit of discipline. 20 minutes each and every day. It doesn’t have to cost a lot. Walking programs are free, as are most in-home exercises. Full disclosure, I spend about $150 a month on exercise, and I

would say that’s on the expensive side. $10 a month gets you into some gyms. Here’s the real secret to getting all of these benefits of exercise...are you ready... pick anything you like to do or think you might like to do (ANYTHING) and do it at least 3-5 times a week for at least 20 minutes. If you do this each and every week you will reap all of the benefits. Want more specifics? I’m not giving them to you because it really is that simple. People always ask for tips and expert advice on how to do certain exercises that might be more beneficial then another type but the truth is that most people just don’t do any of it with any consistency. So the secret is consistency! Any exercise that elevates your heart rate to a point where you are slightly winded is great. Do that - whatever that is. Like our friends at Nike always say...JUST DO IT! And if you really do have questions just give me a call.
