Health, Fitness, Wellness: Commit To A Lifestyle

Health, fitness, and wellness are not about any particular collection of recipes or about any particular exercise DVD. They are collectively about a lifestyle, a commitment. In other words, commit to nutritional awareness, to good eating habits, to exercise awareness, to adequate and frequent exercise, to reduced stress, and so on.  Recipes, DVDs, etc., might serve as tools or implements at any given point in time. But the commitment, the awareness, the lifestyle mean that you will eat right and exercise – recipes or no recipes, DVD or no DVD. And for the long term.

The following is one of my quotes which appears on the “Robert’s Quotes” page of this website:

People often talk about discipline when they talk about exercise or good nutrition. I prefer the word “commitment”. You’re committed elsewhere in your life, why not commit to your own health, fitness, and wellness?

My eBook, “AGE RE-DEFINED: Take Control of Your Health, How You Feel, And How You Look – Even In Your Forties & Fifties”, is an example of a resource which is intended to promote awareness of health, fitness, exercise, nutrition, and the mind-body connection, as well as an enduring commitment to a healthy, fit, and well lifestyle.

Whether you read my eBook or not, think lifestyle. You’re not giving up anything – except maybe unwanted body weight, low energy, and the like.

So, again:  You’re committed elsewhere in your life, why not commit to your own health, fitness, and wellness? Ask yourself if you’re committing to a lifestyle, to health, fitness, and wellness -to yourself, to a new and improved you, to an improving you.  The commitment can be in stages, in increments. But, ultimately, and for lasting effects, it should be to more than just a DVD or a particular collection of recipes.

And speaking of exercise DVDs, here is a link to one Yahoo News Contributor’s thoughts about why hiring a personal trainer is a good investment:

This blog post came to mind after reading a book review. The book, per the review, is about a particular diet plan. The reviewer stated in part that she found the recommended foods too expensive. She also stated that she had lost weight some time ago using a different diet plan from a different book, but had since gained back much of the weight. To my way of thinking, the reviewer could probably benefit from a broader, lifestyle perspective of health, fitness, nutrition, and wellness.
