Health and Fitness

Summary: Health plays a huge factor in our happiness. Bad health steals our money, productivity and much more (Tweet This)

As I mentioned in our Welcome post, each Thursday I'll be covering topics relating to health and fitness.

Jillian Michaels knows a thing or two about health and fitness

Why dedicate a day of the week of Be Better Now towards health and fitness?

I worked as a pharmacy technician in a hospital for five years. I can tell you it was extremely rare to see a happy person laid up in hospital bed. It is very difficult to be productive when you aren't feeling well. And when you are healthy you avoid the hospital bills which can decimate your money and financial freedom.

What articles can you expect to see on Thursdays? Here are some topics we'll cover:

  • Exercise - Between aerobic and anaerobic exercise, there's a lot to cover here.
  • Nutrition - How can eating smarter get us the body we've always dreamed of? How can we feel just as good on the inside?
  • Longevity - What steps can we take to live longer? Living longer doesn't mean much without a high quality of life and being healthy is part of that.
  • Tools - What can we use to help us succeed in our health goals? There's a ton of technology out there... so much more than we had even ten years ago. Let's see what works and what doesn't.

I'll be the first to admit that this is one area of Be Better Now where I'm furthest from being an expert. I'm going to lean on you, the readers, the most. I'm not a doctor. I'm not in the field of medicine. I have a lot of exposure to the industry. In many ways health care was the family business from when I was born to today.

I'm playing both sides of the ball here. I think I've got a lot of information that can be helpful and may make sense to you. At the same time, please go see your doctor and other specialists like physical trainers and dieticians before embarking on a new workout or diet.

Strap yourself in, it's going to be a bumpy ride.
