Probably more than any other area of wellness, the demand for finding physical wellness has experienced a total makeover. Fad diets have always been around, but today people want more than a diet that doesn’t last. They want a permanent solution for physical wellness. Why this change? Pre-diabetes and Metabolic Syndrome now affect three times as many people today as compared to 20 years ago. 79 million people are pre-diabetic, and it’s a critical and immediate concern. They want to live healthy vibrant and longer lives. They have to make changes to their lifestyle when it comes to physical wellness, and we need to lead by example.
That means when you welcome people to join the healthy lifestyle, and welcome customers to your MakeGreenGoGreen team, they should see you walking your talk. That doesn’t mean we’re in perfect physical shape. It’s about progress not perfection.
But it means we can wake up to wellness, and do the simple things that lead to better wellness:
- Eat Smart. To eat smart and make better choices, we must get informed and understand the alternatives. Did you know that choosing mozzarella over cheddar cheese, popcorn over potato chips, Greek yogurt over sour cream and salad over french fries can lead to a reduction of 10 pounds in a single year? Did you know that eating three smaller healthier meals and two healthy snacks (one midmorning and the other mid afternoon) can lower blood sugar by up to 13%? Healthier choices make a big difference.
- Get Active. We also need to get active. Exercise stimulates healthy digestive function and enables the cardiovascular system to prevent plaque buildup and even stimulate healthy brain function. Exercise is essential to wellness not just weight loss. Exercise gives us these and other benefits and if — this is important –it is done regularly.
- Stay Accountable. As you eat right and get active, stay accountable and share your wellness goals with others. Help one another reach those goals. It’s a fact whether it’s losing weight exercising daily or building a make green go green business, teaming up ensures you’ll stick to your goals.
- Take Vitamins. We’ve learned when we give our body consistent not intermittent nutrition, it can function properly to defend, protect and renew itself. Minerals are the catalyst for critical functions like proper digestion and metabolism, healthy immune, brain, thyroid, and nervous system function all depend on essential vitamins and minerals just as your car needs oil to be continuously running. Vitamins and minerals need to be continuously available to your body systems. No other mineral and vitamin supplement is more effective than what we offer at Make Green Go Green. We have the science to prove that it’s more absorbable and protects antioxidant vitamins better than any other products sold. As you approach the new year ahead, set some realistic wellness goals: eat smart, get active, stay accountable, and take vitamins.
