Every choice matters.
Every choice you make really does matter. In fact, you could say that who you are today is mostly the sum of all the choices you’ve made up until this point in your lifetime. In the busy rush of your everyday life you probably get little chance to think about all of the hundreds of simple choices you will make every day. But it is these seemingly insignificant individual choices that hold the power of determining your health. Added all together, these everyday lifestyle choices become a very big deal!
“Will I eat the apple or eat the doughnut?”
“Will I go out for a walk or lie on the couch and watch something on Netflix?”
Will I see myself in the mirror and say, “Gee…I love me!” or instead think something like, “Ugh…I look so fat and ugly”?
It is everyday choices like these that have got you to where you are now…as well as to where you are heading in the future. The good news is that you get to choose!
Better choices. Better health.
Do you ever stop and ask yourself, “Are my choices moving me towards a shorter, worse life…or towards a longer, better life?” Better health and a better life comes from better choices! As obvious as this seems, many of us don’t truly understand exactly what “better” choices actually means.
Making better health choices isn’t always easy.
There is no doubt it can be very confusing to figure out what is actually a better choice or what is just marketing-hype cleverly designed to misled you. And then there are the so-called “health experts” who will convincingly sell you on just how amazing their latest factory-made super smoothie is, how you will easily lose inches off your waistline and leap-tall-buildings-in-a-single-bound too! What about the scientists who will publish data telling us one thing one day and then something completely different the next…often depending on who is funding the research. So how are you to know if you are making better choices or not?
How to always know the better choice.
There is a way to know if any choice you are making is going to move you in the right direction. Better health choices are always going to be ‘genetically–congruent‘.
“What the heck does ‘genetically-congruent’ mean?”
Stay with me here. It’s not that difficult! Basically, you can think of it this way. Anything that your body’s genes have been familiar with over eons of time is going to be ‘genetically-congruent’. For example, eating an apple is genetically-congruent. Your genes are very familiar with how to turn an apple into healthy eyeball or some other body part. On the other hand, eating a doughnut (or potato chips, chocolate, soft drinks or alcohol) are ‘genetically-incongruent‘ choices because your genes have no idea how to use these unfamiliar substances to build a healthy body. Better health choices are always going to be ‘genetically–congruent’. No exceptions!
Every lifestyle choice you make that is genetically-incongruent is going to move you towards a shorter, worse life. Any choice you make that is genetically-congruent is going to move you towards a longer, better life.
It’s time to choose better.
It’s time for you to choose better. Time to take responsibility for your health and your life. Even if it’s just one easy ‘genetically congruent’ choice a day.
Eat the apple…ditch the doughnut. Walk the dog…get off the couch. See your beauty…don’t search for “flaws”.
