Health and Purpose

Edited-0334.jpg

I know that not everyone has the privilege to consider their nutrition, exercise, sleep, work and play habits when it comes to quality of life. There is cancer and disease and extremists groups and refugees fighting for their lives, we’re in huge amounts of debt and work long weeks putting in extra hours just to afford health insurance.

But for most of us these exceptions don’t apply. Most of us have the capacity to take care of our health and well being. I personally don’t believe perfect health or perfect abs is the end goal but I am becoming more and more convinced that such lifestyle commitments will make us more effective in everything we do in our lives as business owners, accountants, health care professionals, musicians, teachers, spouses, parents, students, friends and neighbors. 

The bodies we’re given are mysterious wonders and it’s our job and privilege to take care of them because they are a visible expression of who we are.
