    Health problems are prevalent among modern adults more than ever. Could this be attributed to modern lifestyles? Almost entirely, but there is more to blame. The quality of the food around us is also an issue as we are often surrounded by high-caloric processed foods. We usually have to go to designated produce or “organic” food aisles to find rows of food that can be considered healthy.

    Arguably, the lack of instruction is also an issue. Hundreds of years ago when meat and bread were staples as they were not mass-produced, it was not necessary to teach people about healthy eating. It is not like there was an abundance of carbohydrate options to choose from to replace the fruits and vegetables we need to be eating. Now, more than ever, we need proper instruction to ensure our lifestyle is not leading us down an unhealthy path.

    In light of these facts, the point of struggle for many modern adults is not the lack of a commitment to their health. Perhaps surprisingly to you, most people aspire to have better health and well-being…

    • no one wants to be a victim of Type 2 diabetes or heart disease.
    • no one wants to have a protruding abdominal area due to obesity, not because their “younger days” have passed.

    The majority of adults have either tried or are currently in the process of making an effort to improve their health; so the absence of intent or commitment is not the problem.

    What is the length of time you have been committed? How long have your positive habits been sustained? How secure is your discipline and how resistant are you to the temptation to quit because it is inevitable? With any task, there will be a challenge and doubt. Moreover, unfortunately, it is the main reason why many people do not take their commitments very far.

    What are you currently doing to improve your health? How long have you been committed to improving your health? If you have been trying to lose weight, think back to when you started your current objective which means the day you decided to commit to weight loss as opposed to the day you said enough is enough. Now that could have been years ago. If the latter was when you put your commitment into play, you would not be looking to lose weight still, would you?

    Short-term commitments do have their place when they are carried out correctly. However, if we are talking about the big picture – which we should be when it concerns your health – then we ought to be talking about your long-term plans. If you are not ready to put forth a consistent effort for a long-term commitment, you are not prepared to improve your health. Harsh but true.
