Fitness Is About Health and Staying Healthy Is About Good Body Maintenance

Some are born with an inbuilt knowledge of what one’s body needs. Others are easily misguided and led by fashion, popularity, and peer pressure into things that should be avoided. There is also the bodies willingness or otherwise to partake of harmful substances. In my case my body could not tolerate chemicals or anything that affected the brain. This was guided by my keen desire for knowledge and making my intelligence number one.

The lessons learned are that what we do when we are young has an impact on aging and on what diseases and handicaps we will face as the years pile up. Good body maintenance is about avoiding anything toxic and that includes even dangerous rides at carnivals.

The latest fad is to take rides on vehicles that cause a drop and sudden stop, as in some crazy fairground roller coaster adventures. Watching one of these recently it was hard for me to believe that people not only put their own bodies at risk but that of their children in the name of having fun. The human brain is soft and very easily damaged.

The body warns of impending danger through the adrenalin glands and the sensation that many find addictive. As adrenalin flows it increases the heart rate and provides us with a flight or fight experience. In other words, it prepares for recovery from harm.

As the body jerks into a sudden stop the cranium and brain collide. This causes a degree of bruising and can even result in death or paralysis. But that doesn’t have to happen immediately as delayed response may see the effects of concussion several hours or even a day after the event.

Headaches; nausea; dizziness; memory problems; irritability; as well as balance and sleeping difficulties may follow. Look at these symptoms and compare them to those of Alzheimer’s or dementia patients. With the latter there are huge changes in brain functions that include memory loss.While there is no proven correlation to support the linking of the two it doesn’t mean it is not correct.

Drugs also affect the brain and taking pills on a regular basis may also be leading to the onset of Alzheimer’s or dementia. While there are no studies to prove this is the case it’s still a matter of common sense.

If one is looking for a fitness regime then start with the brain and all other things will surely follow. It has the ability to tell us when we are going wrong. Drugs, on the other hand, interfere with that side of nature. We educate the brain by what we do to our bodies. If we stuff ourselves with things like sweets and alcohol, and tell it that the odd adrenalin rush is OK, then changes in that vital organ will impel us to take more of it.

Lets get honest

Lets get honest

11 days left of this year and 11 days left of this decade!!!!!! I am not sure what I am more shocked about, the fact that I remember the millennium celebrations and spending the night on call because as soon as the clocks on the computers hit 00:00:00 the world was going to end OR the fact that it was 20 years ago!!!! 20 years! Its actually quite frightening at how quickly time passes, and more so as you get older, I have no idea why this is but it just seems to go quicker.

So lets get honest, and I am not going make you go back 20 years. Lets just look back to 1st January 2019. Did you set any New Years resolutions? perhaps you wanted to stop smoking, join a gym (and actually go this time), be healthier, get a new job, move house, be happier………..the list can be quite long. Did you do it? if you did huge congratulations, you are in the 8% of people that actually accomplished them. 25% of people stay committed for 30 days then just..give up. Its the same any time of the year, commitment isn’t something that just flows to us on the 1st day of each year. The same process applies for weight loss, learning a new skill, reading a book etc. It all comes down to how much you want it, what does it mean to you, what are the consequences of not doing it and how will you do it. Resolutions are too vague, you need to set goals instead. Goals are specific, they are actionable which makes them more effective.Get clear on what you want to accomplish, why is it important and how will you make it happen. Take being healthier as an example and break it down. How are you going to become healthier? Will that mean changing eating habits, and/or join a gym or fitness class? Do you need to hire a personal trainer or a health coach to help you with these goals? what else will you have to do? Be as specific as possible and break it down into all of the smaller steps you will need to reach your full goal.

The biggest challenge is to be honest with yourself. Most people have the same resolutions year on year as they simply just carry it over (guilty as charged over here). Take a good look in the mirror and actually ask yourself questions out loud. What got in the way last time? Why do you want to do it? How will it make you feel? 

Know you can do it, because you can. Believe in yourself, but know……if you change nothing, nothing changes.
