Stand Out! Don’t be Afraid, Ditch Normal
I know, this goes against everything your mom and common sense told you since you were a toddler. Everyone wants to be seen as normal, right? Normal means fitting in, being like everyone else, part of the majority.
Well, no more, at least when it comes to these three aspects of your life. Because today many people find it normal to be overweight and in poor health, to settle in relationships and to have debt and little or no net worth.
Normal Health? No way.
The new normal in America is if you are in the norm, you are very overweight, maybe obese. Because you are so uncomfortable, you rarely walk or do any other kind of exercise.
If you are normal in America, it means you eat fast food regularly, smoke, eat very little fruit and vegetable and barely know how to cook. In fact, you also eat out a lot and your fridge has mostly soft drinks, beer, some frozen pizza and other processed food.
If you are normal, you have latent heart problems and or type 2 diabetes, and there is a good chance you will die fairly young or spend your last years in a wheelchair.
It’s become normal in America to have obese kids who slurp on soft drinks, watch tv or play on computer most of the time and are addicted to junk food. Today’s youngs may die younger than their parents because their bad health starts when they are so young.
Where do you fit in that picture? If you find that this is a pretty accurate description of your health, you can change it. It’s quite simple really although it’s not necessarily easy.
First, ditch the junk food. Invest in some fruits and vegetables. Then, start cooking. And start walking. Identify your triggers for eating badly. Attack them one by one. Make friends with people who eat healthy. Make friends with people who walk or exercise and value their health. Meal planning can help you eat healthier.
