What do you want? The choices you make every day are moving you in the direction of a future which you can predict with significant accuracy. And your mindset determines the choices that you make.
According to Dr. Monte Ladner, M.D., it is without dispute that you can reduce the chances that you will be stricken with a major chronic disease by 80%. These major diseases include cardiovascular disease, diabetes, stroke and cancer.
Dr. Ladner outlines the four lifestyle habits that determine whether or not you can count yourself in the segment of people that enjoy this protection from disease:
1. Not smoking
2. Exercising at least 30 minutes every day
3. Eating a healthy diet which contains large amounts of vegetables and fruit
4. Keeping your weight down
Do you meet the above criteria?
Your Present Mindset Impacts Your Future Health
Your mindset is a critical component in determining where you fall in the risk of being sick or healthy, strong or frail. Every day, all day, you make decisions that directly impact how healthy you will be now and in the future. Upon what are you focused?
Let The Future Determine Your Present Mindset
Now try this. If you continue on your current course, how do you think you will feel in 10, 20 or 40 years? Consider the rate of disease and debilitation of most upper-middle aged and older people. Is that your trajectory? Every day you make decisions that cement your future health.
Right now is the time to decide to master your mindset and put yourself on a course toward strength, health and vitality. Look over the four components that are necessary for making this kind of life as likely as possible. Take them one at a time, and make a plan. Set your face toward your future and create health.
