Risk Making a Change for your Health

“Behold the turtle. He makes progress only when he sticks his neck out.”    ― James Bryant Conant

 

Ok, so how many of you would consider yourselves “risk-averse” with regard to your health?  Do you adopt “reasons” why you can’t do different things to improve your health?  Many of us do, and we all know change is difficult under the best of circumstances.

 

Getting healthy and making positive changes takes a certain amount of risk too.

 

We worry that working out harder could open us up to injury, or signing up for a yoga class takes more time away from our friends and families.  There are multitudes of small healthy things we make reasons not to do, like:
buying fresh fruits and vegetables regularly,
+ incorporating vitamin and mineral supplements into a daily routine
+ taking a walk at lunchtime
+ seeing the doctor for a long overdue checkup.
 = But they all add up over time to a healthier you!

 

So take a risk…pick a few…commit to even one.   

 

The value to your health is definitely worth the risk of inconveniences like re-prioritizing a daily schedule, or adding an extra step to your morning routine to down much needed supplements like a daily multivitamin and a dose of calcium plus vitamin D3 .

 

Dance on the wild side a little further and try a different dosage form like liquids to take your supplements. High quality liquid supplements are an easy way to adapt to taking what you need daily – put it all in a smoothie for breakfast as you rush out the door.

 

Stick your neck out there and do not let a little risk stand in the way of healthy progress.
