After a holiday hiatus, we’re officially back for 2019 with all new Wellness Wednesday videos. Here’s the first one.
Here’s a profound fact about health and wellness that makes it very different from lots of other things in life:
No matter how much money you have, no one can be healthy for you.
This is completely different from a lot of other things life. If you
-never wanted to do the dishes yourself again
-never wanted to clean your house yourself again
-never wanted to mow your lawn yourself again
-never wanted to do your taxes yourself again
-never wanted to drive yourself anywhere again
you could hire (with sufficient money) someone to do those things for you.
At the most extreme level, technically speaking, you could even hire someone to raise your kids for you with no involvement from you. Probably not the best idea, but, technically speaking, it’s possible.
But health and wellness isn’t like this. You could be Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Tim Cook or British royalty and hire the best trainers, nutritionists, cooks, massage therapists etc. But no matter how much money you have, at the end of the day
-only you can eat healthy food on your own behalf to make yourself healthy
-only you can do exercises in the gym to make yourself more fit
-only you can get your butt in bed at a reasonable hour to get a good night’s rest for yourself
-only you can participate in stress reduction activities on your own behalf to reduce your own stress.
No one can do these things for you, no matter how much money you have. This means your health and wellness can’t be outsourced.
This is why it’s so important to create healthy habits around diet, exercise, sleep, and stress reduction because no matter how much money you have you still have to be the one to do these things for yourself.
