begin now eating right and exercising every day.  Just in case I haven’t, I am including the following list of benefits (hopefully something will get your attention): 

The Benefits of a Healthy Lifestyle

tells you about the tree.”lxxxi  These words can apply to many different areas of life.  They are very true when applied to your health.  You will get exactly what you put into your plan of health.  There are so many benefits from living a healthy lifestyle that they are too numerous to mention.  I will briefly touch on the main ones here: 

Two Forces That Work Together 

There are two major forces that work together to shape your overall health and well-being.  These forces, applied separately, will not have the same effect as when you get them both working in your life.  They are the forces of diet and exercise.  I will talk about each one individually later.  For now, I need to stress the point that for optimum health, it is important to focus on both of these. 

Take Care of You

It is your responsibility to take care of your health.  No one else is going to do it; so don’t expect them to.  Whether you just ran the Boston Marathon and only need a gentle reminder or you haven’t moved off the couch or eaten a green bean in years, let’s go through this principle together.  When I was in the planning stages of this program, I struggled with including a section on physical health.  There are many people out there who ignore health and instead, are focusing on so many less important things.  Just taking a look at the state of many people today would tell you that we, as a society, do not place enough importance on health and physical well-being.  I finally decided to include this principle because I believe that the state of your overall life is absolutely dependent on your physical health.
