Make health a priority
Quick: What is the number one reason that women don’t make their health and fitness a priority? You got it: time. At least that’s what the majority of the more than 2, 000 women who participated in a study looking at health, fitness and nutrition habits reported to Amy Eyler, as associate research professor at Washington University in St. Louis.
Every day you balance work, family, home and a seemingly endless stream of errands and to-dos. If you’re like most women we know, you can’t afford to get sick. But here’s the real question: Do you have time to devote to getting and staying healthy? If you think the answer is “no,” think again. Because it’s not a question of having the time‚ it’s a question of making it. This one single realization could be the trick to achieving the weight you want, and the feeling of energy and control you crave.
Want to lose weight (especially the abdominal fat that increases your risk for serious diseases), feel more energized, and get sick less often? As of today, “It’s time to follow one of the fundamental safety rules of airline pilots,” says Eyler. “Put on your own oxygen mask first.”
Start with the five golden rules that follow and you’ll be well on your way.
