Shortcuts Only Give Short Results

dave_061--1It would be a fantastic life if all the shortcuts we heard about actually worked. In reality very few ever give the results they promote, and so it goes with the health and wellness industry.

Yes, sadly, the health & fitness industry has a tendency to take advantage of quick fixes. Take this pill, follow this diet, do this workout, and all will be well, you won’t even have to break a sweat.

I’m sorry folks, but the body doesn’t work that way, not when it comes to lasting, long- term health. The body is designed to heal itself when given the basics of health and wellness, and there is no cheating it.

The way to health and wellness may not be wrapped up in some high intensity, glamorous, infomercial with hot bodies showing their results, but it works, it works every time, and it is the way our body’s are designed.

Tried and true, the body responds well with proper nutrition, quality sleep, hydration, quality breathing, exercise, and a proper mindset.

A majority of health issues can be resolved when the body is given the time and basic inputs to heal itself. This can’t be done with pills or quick fixes.

Most people turn to quick fixes out of confusion and despair. They feel they have nowhere else to turn. They feel they’ve tried everything. They are filled with frustration and doubt. When they hear of products or services that will give the results they desire, they fall prey to the quick fix.

Some of these shortcuts, or quick fixes are fat burners, thermogenetics, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, diuretics, antacids, anti-histamines, and cholesterol lowering drugs, high blood pressure meds,  antidepressants, and the list goes on.

Please understand I believe there is a time and place for the ethical use of some of these drugs under the supervision of a doctor. However, most are over used because we would rather not have to take a long-term approach to healing our bodies. In most cases, many of us feel it is easier to take a pill than put in the effort to clean up our eating, drink more water, start an exercise program, get quality sleep, breathe deep, and condition our minds.

We live in a world that expects instant gratification. We feel we shouldn’t have to work for, or put forth any energy, or time for the results we desire as long as we can pay someone else to do it for us.

Health and wellness comes as a result of a lifestyle, a lifestyle that follows the components of health and wellness. There are no shortcuts.

Short cuts have a way of catching up to us. They never solve the issue, they just put it off.

Don’t fall prey to short cuts. Live a life of health and wellness. If you don’t know what that means then reach out and ask. Take the time to know. I am here to help you on this journey,

I wish for you Vibrant Health!
