Take Excellent Care Of Your Physical Health


We are living at the most wonderful time in human history in terms of longevity and physical fitness. You can live longer and better today than has ever before been possible. Your goal must be to live to be 80 or 90 or 100 years old, in excellent health, and you can do it if you decide to.

Set a goal to live to be at least 80 years old. Then, look at your current health habits and ask yourself whether or not the way you are living today is going to get you to the age of 80 in great shape?

There are three keys to living a long, happy, healthy life. The first is proper weight. Set it as a goal to get your weight under control and then remain lean and fit for the rest of your life. There is a five word formula for weight loss and physical fitness. It is simply this, "Eat less and exercise more."

Second, proper diet. The key to a proper diet is for you to eat better foods and fewer of them. Eat more lean source proteins, fruits and vegetables. Eliminate deserts, soft drinks, candy and anything else containing sugar from your life. Stop consuming extra salt and stop eating white flour products. Eat smaller portions and eat four or five times a day rather than three large meals. When you can take complete control of your eating habits, you will find it easier to take control of your habits in other parts of your life as well.

The third key to long life is proper exercise. This requires that you exercise approximately 200 minutes per week or an average of 30 minutes per day. You can get all the exercise you need by going for a vigorous 30 to 60 minute walk three to five days per week. If you are really serious, you should join a health club or get some fitness equipment for your house and work out even more vigorously.

The key to excellent physical health and long life is for you to set clear, specific goals for your levels of health and fitness. It is for you to make a plan and then for you to work your plan every day. This requires tremendous self-mastery, self control and self discipline, but the pay off can be extraordinary. If your financial goal is to achieve a net worth in excess of one million dollars, your health goal should be to live as long as possible so that you can enjoy a wonderful lifestyle with your money.
