This post will be short and sweet.
Many of you have been thinking about holidays and gifts and your plans for next year. Think about a gift for yourself of health, fitness and personal energy. It is the best gift you can give, and no one else can give it to you.
You can also give to others, the gift of motivation and encouragement for a healthy, fit and active lifestyle.
We have already been given the gift of life. It is up to us how we treat the mind and body we have been given. For many of us, we have let it wear poorly over time. We don’t get to get a new body. But we can renew and refurbish the body that we have. Our bodies are self-healing machines and can be renewed and refurbished with a little bit of attention. Just like a classic car, our bodies can be rebuilt into almost new condition with the right attention, tools and some work. Then, if we continue to treat it right, we will get more than the mileage it was built for.
And too, just like a classic car, if we continue to take care of our bodies we will exceed the mileage they were originally built for. Our bodies don’t have to become obsolete. Just like the classic automobile, once we “fix it up”, it can run almost like new. Airplanes were built to fly. Cars are built to drive. Bodies are meant to move. There are airplanes and cars that have been around far beyond their original planned obsolescence, because they have been flown or driven and most important, have been given the gift of loving care. Our bodies deserve the same loving care.
Have a Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday, and a healthy, joyous, and prosperous New Year.
