Health Tomfoolery

Give yourself permission to be healthy.

If there ever is a word with that is more overused then the word ‘health’, the planet would explode.

We are bombarded with opinions about health and what it means to be healthy. One news source tells you Fats are bad for you, someone else may tell you it’s great for you, and your family will have all manner of opinions about what’s good and what’s bad. With all of these differing philosophies, it’s easy to lose your sanity on what you should do and instead do nothing at all. (Ugh! One day they tell me eggs are bad for me, the next day they tell me they’re great… eff it! I’m going to go eat some cake.)

What you’re seeing in the health industry is the battle between science and money. Why is a large french fry and soda less money than a pack of blueberries? Why is the immediate response to most mainstream doctors is to give us pills to mask the problem versus figuring out how to fix the problem. There are so many facts and figures, opinions and antidotal answers, it’s hard to know who to trust.

Ultimately, you are the one who decides what’s best for you. The choice to be healthy or not is up to you. Opt out of the games. Trust your gut. Experiment and find out what works best for you.

There’s one thing I know and that’s why you should want to get healthy in the first place:

Energy.

What’s one thing that affects our ability to create and enjoy life?

I’ve experienced first hand the frustration and despair of Chronic Fatigue and low energy. If the energy you use is more than the energy you generate. Without enough energy, you are a slave to your health. 

Eating whole, moving your body, breath work, and aligning your daily habits to the lifestyle of your dreams is how you can build up positive energy.

Health Starts With You

Your health is your responsibility.

As much as I would love to just be able to give my health problems to someone else to take care of for me, that’s not how i­t­ works. (Steve, you’re in charge of exercising my muscles. Brad, you’re in charge of meditating, while I’m going to lay on this couch and watch YouTube. Alright, ready GO!)

For the last couple years, I’ve had energy problems. It’s a zombie lifestyle: I go to bed tired and wake up tired. Exercise is exhausting. I push through the fatigue to make a living and work on my pursuits (like this blog and podcast), but I still don’t feel as RADIANT as I want to be. My mind, creativity, energy, liveliness doesn’t feel sharp. I’ve been to multiple doctors, which helped spotlight the problems, but they weren’t able to provide me a road to recovery and change.

That where I come in. Am I just going to give up? Lay in bed for the rest of my life, to never write a book, release a music album, travel the world? Hell No.

This is my responsibility.

The only person who cares 150% about your wellbeing is yourself.
Others can care, but you should care even more. Some doctors care, but there’s only so much they can do with a 20-minute consultation. You are the one who has the power in your hands to change your life trajectory. I’m not a doctor (nor do I play one on the Internet), I’m not telling you to do something stupid. In fact, I’m telling you to do the opposite — be smart about your health. Your health directly affects everything you do, including your creativity and success. If you want to be a high performer in what you do, you’ve got to go beyond the basics and learn to take control of what ails you.

You must be the one to take charge, gain knowledge and master health and wellness.

Somewhere out there, there is someone who has been through what we’re going through. It’s up to us to learn from them and smartly experiment with what works for ourselves.

You’re health — and ultimately your life — is in your hands.

A greater understanding of health is a certain roadmap to a better all-around YOU.
