AJ's Secret To Staying Healthy

The first step in achieving and maintaining health is taking personal responsibility. In this context, responsibility means choosing a healthful alternative over a less harmful one. If you want to be healthy, simply make healthful choices. The second step is taking the appropriate action to achieve the result you desire. Achieving and maintaining good health is usually quite easy if an individual follows basic principals: Positive mental attitude, a healthful  diet, and exercise. Trying to sell people on health is often difficult.  In order to be healthy, one needs commitment.  The reward is not easily seen or felt. It is usually not until the body fails us in some manner that we realize we haven't taken care of it. Ralph Waldo Emerson said "The first wealth is health." The reward for most people who maintain a positive mental attitude, eat a healthful diet, and exercise regularly is a healthy life filled with  levels of energy, joy, vitality, and a tremendous passion for living.
