Two reasons you must do something about your health today

Two reasons you must do something about your health today

There are two important reasons why you can’t wait until tomorrow or next week or whenever to start taking steps toward a healthier lifestyle.

Those two reasons happen to be the two things you can’t get more of in this life: your body and time.

Your body

You have one body – the one you were born with, the same one that you’re living in now, and the one that will carry to your grave.   It’s the only one you get in this life.

When you look in the mirror or step on the scale or go for a physical, what you’re observing is the sum total of the health and lifestyle choices you’ve made up to this point.  Don’t let that discourage you if you’ve made poor choices – you can choose to take better care of your body starting today.

You don’t get another body – at least not in this life; so start taking care of it now.  Decide what is important to you, and if you want health, energy, vitality and a clear mind, you have to start making lifestyle choices (diet, fitness/activity, stress) today!

Don’t wait!  These bodies don’t last forever, and you can’t change the choices you made in the past, but you have today, and this can be the first day you take some small steps toward a healthier body.


There is a saying that goes something like this – the best time to plant a tree is ten years ago, the second best time is today.  I like that saying because it reminds me that if I want to achieve something, I have to start today.   You can’t go back and change the health or lifestyle choices you made in the past – but you do have today! 

Decide and act today to change your body and life.  The small steps you take today will have changes that ripple through tomorrow and on in to the future.  Visualize today what you want your body, mind and life to be like in the future; you won’t get there by chance.   A healthier you tomorrow starts with the choices you make today.


I hope you’ll find the kind of informative and motivating things on that will help you take steps today to have a healthier lifestyle tomorrow.

Don’t wait!  You don’t get another body, and you don’t get more time.  You can’t change what choices you made yesterday, but you do have today.
