In the bible, God teaches us the road to destruction is wide and the road to life is narrow; one is easy and the other hard. This is a solid truth when it comes to living at your full health potential.
The wide, easy path is synonymous with no commitment to the health of your body. It’s easier to not go to the gym, for example, or to pick up pre-made or packaged foods. It’s easier to just flick on the TV, to drive to town, to send a text, to sleep in. All of these things that are “easier” are not the path leading to the best life.
The narrow path is harder but it is certainly more capable of yielding the best reward. The effort required to exercise, prepare a naturally healthy meal, read a book, walk to town, call a friend, and wake up early yield a much greater result.
When I look at the healthiest patients in my office, they’re the people engaging in multiple processes that are part of the narrow path.
I always tell patients it’s not easy to be healthy in today’s world, but it is so worth it. One of the most important assets you have is your health. Invest your time and money into it so you can continue to be at your best.
Concentrate on these areas:
- Proper function in your nerve system
- Healthy nutrition – foods by God
- Movement – get oxygen moving in your body
- Eliminate Toxins
- De-stress and get plenty of rest
