Right Coast Pro's Renegade Training Steps to a Healthier Lifestyle: Step Two
Remember to take your time in life because the thing that happens to those who race to end, is the end. – John Davies of Renegade Training International
Examples of planning for the future and risk management are endless. In nearly every stream of life, people plan to improve their stature, yet when it comes to the matter of wellbeing and healthy lifestyles, society turns a blind eye especially in regards to processed food.
Step Two Towards a Healthier Lifestyle
- Eliminate processed foods
- Re-think diet as cuisine
- Embrace traditions of cooking
- Slow down, appreciate the ‘slowness’ of cooking with friends and Family.
- Return to the ‘Family Dinner’
- Turn off electronic devices during meals
“The development of a business long-term asset is no small undertaking. Long past the original intent and investment grade decisions, leaders of a business much hold dear a vision to nurture an assets growth and eventually harvest its value. This can vary in a myriad of different manners throughout the life of a business and for those with a broad horizon, risk management is key.
Said management is quite obviously not merely the home of business visionaries as throughout our daily lives, all societies consider planning for the unexpected and further tactical decisions to improve their situation. Whether it is stretching the definition or not, improving education standards throughout your lifetime is in many ways a personal risk management tool of safeguarding your career as well.
The conclusion is meandering story of well laid out marketing strategies, a vast changing family dynamic and in the darkest of lights, political factions spending time looking like leaders as opposed to managing the leadership helm.
Those are pointed words, I know but it is about time that someone stands up and casts a finger straight towards the fast food industry and political factions who do nothing but watch generations detonate their lives. While ‘blame’ is not in their hands of those supplying a product that the public is free to decide, the inability for leaders to see beyond the checkbooks of lobbyists and short-term economic growth is staggering.
What is left is a society, bloated from its last 'takeaway' serving of something they refer to as ‘food’, trying to balance exploding health-care costs but never once realizing at the root of the problem is diet. Diet and its gruesome cousin, the modern lifestyle, are waging war with advancement and through the next half century, the inability of leaders to manage this runaway train will cost all of us dearly.
On a macro level, I hate to be the one to burst the optimistic bubble but ‘true change’ is not in the cards. The general public is not turning back the clock to my vision of a better time but there are opportunities for the individual. Opportunities to improve to your health, your families and better your entire lifestyle are beaming straight ahead but you simply need to reach out for it. – John Davies of Renegade Training International
Incorporating a healthy lifestyle does not mean shoveling food down your gullet. Don’t think of ‘diet’ think of ‘cuisine’ when adopting a healthy lifestyle.
Cuisine embodies both the traditions of cooking, possibly influenced by region and most common, lineage. By returning to this, you not only improve your health with more traditional meals, with naturally healthier ingredients, you gain the benefit few recognize in diet circles, that being fellowship.
That might seem more than a morsel flowery but fellowship and an ability to relax during a meal directly impacts upon your health.
Stress levels are reduced when one ‘slows down’ their meals and shares in fellowship.
Make an effort to return the ‘Family Dinner’ into your life.
