Many people dig too deep down the rabbit hole of consequences when it comes to our decisions about our health and fitness.
They talk about cigarettes causing cancer when a more pressing issue should be how much it affects our day to day energy, our capacity to breath and quite frankly just how damn smelly it is.
They talk about obesity causing all sorts of fancy sounding medical issues down the line which people cannot connect to when simply telling people that it will hinder them in any sort of physical activity, like playing with their kids, walking the dog, or planning any sort of trip that requires physical exertion will do quite nicely.
We don’t need every reason to be healthier to be some do or die necessity to spur people to make some small changes in their lives.
A healthy, strong body allows the mind to be free of limitations. That is really the only reason you need to take care of yourself.
After all, if you need the fear of hell to spur you to be a good person, then you were never a good person to begin with.
