If You Are Healthy, You Will Feel Healthy!
Article by, Gary Goldstein
We all want to feel our best, but sometimes, due to our busy lifestyle these days, that is easier said than done.
We must juggle work, raising a family, running errands, doing chores, etc., and eating healthy and working out or exercising might not be a top priority for some.
However, I believe it not only should be, but can be as well!
As the author of Jew in Jail, and also a blogger and motivational & inspirational speaker on recovery from addiction, I know how important it is to keep in shape - both physically and mentally - and how crucial discipline and focus is in maintaining such a routine.
I wake up at 4:00am each and every day in order to get my workout in first thing in the morning.
Having that done before the sun comes up is a great feeling of accomplishment that I can then put in “my pocket,” and carry around for the remainder of my busy day.
Just as important is eating a healthy breakfast, which, studies have shown, is the most important meal of the day.
I always replenish my body after a workout by drinking a glass of juice, and either eating a bowl of oatmeal, cold cereal, or cup of yogurt, topped off by having a banana and spoonful of peanut butter.
The protein and nutrients from breakfast will provide enough energy to last until lunchtime, which I try to eat at the same hour every day, in order to ensure a regular metabolism.
In addition, regardless of where I am on each particular day, I constantly drink water, which has many benefits, including, among other things, improving skin.
Perhaps the best thing I do for my health is what I don’t do, namely smoking, doing drugs, or consuming alcohol.
I wasn’t always this way, but after enduring some rough times in the past, I have learned my lesson, and do my best nowadays to share my knowledge and experience with others.
There is no denying that life in the 21st century can be complicated, with less time to maintain proper health and exercise than in the past.
However, I, for one, believe all of you reading this right now have greatness and the unlimited potential to conquer anything you put your mind to, so I implore you to get on a health kick.
You will not regret it!
