Hope you had a great weekend and did something that inspired you! Yesterday I attended my annual coaching conference and left full of INSPIRATION! I’m revved up and wanted to share some take-aways.
Everyone knows they need to strength train to prevent muscle loss as they age.
Everyone knows they need to eat better and drink less alcohol to lose weight. At least they know broccoli is better for them than bundt cake.
Everyone knows they need to get 7-9 hours of sleep per night, manage their stress levels, and surround themselves with supportive like-minded fit people to be healthier.
So if everyone knows these things, why is there a pandemic of obesity and chronic disease in our country? Doesn’t make much sense????
Imagine with me….you’re on an airplane, cramped and tired, eager to reach your destination. The flight crew is passing by with the snack cart. You’re not really hungry, you just ate a crappy overpriced sandwich back in the terminal—but you notice that the guy in a suit sitting next to you is treating himself to a bag of M&Ms and a Chardonnay. You’ve never met this person before and exchanged only a cursory nod as you took your seats. Still, research shows that you are now 30% more likely to spring for some candy and maybe even a glass of wine of your own.
