20 minutes a day is all it takes to make a difference. I made a difference on my lunch hour today. You spend 20 minutes scrolling through social media, reading a magazine, watching a show, and who knows what else. What if you could use that time to change your health? Improve your blood pressure, cholesterol, metabolism, and get off of those medications that make you feel horrible and cause worse side effects than the reason you’re taking them?
You have a choice. Your health is YOUR choice. No one else can decide for you. Sure, there are genetic deficiencies that prevent some folks from being able to control and maintain a healthy body. But if you’re not one of those people, and you’re unhealthy, it’s your own fault.
And I can say that because I’ve been there. In high school, I never once topped 95 lbs, and that’s because I was in the bathroom after every single meal, sticking my finger down my throat to puke my guts up because I thought I was fat. I learned how to “properly vomit” as to keep stomach acid from ruining my teeth, but that definitely did NOT save my esophagus, because now water gives me heartburn.
Then after giving birth to my son and a cancer scare, I let myself go to the point of having to be put on blood pressure medication, thyroid medication, pricking my finger twice a day to monitor my glucose level, drinking like a fish and smoking like a chimney.
I wish I had taken better care of myself. I wish someone had shown me how. I wish someone would have told me the effect that those foolish decisions would have had on my mind and body later on in life.
But I am here, and I am telling you now, TAKE. CARE. OF. YOURSELF. Make the time for yourself. You make time for everything else, so why do you not include yourself? You cannot pour from an empty cup.
