Many of my articles are written surrounding a health philosophy that I call “Just One More Thing.” If you have been around me for any length of time you will know about this approach. It is my contention that the best method for you to employ to create wellness for yourself and your family is through the daily application of this “just one more thing” concept. It states that the road to wellness is through the systematic addition of one healthy behavior at a time until that behavior is part of your regular lifestyle. And then once that behavior is part of your lifestyle you add just one more thing again until it too is part of your lifestyle. I have written about this many times and I do so here once again because it is the cornerstone of your future health and wellness. Entropy, a law of the universe that states that all matter moves increasingly towards disorder, is acting on your body right now. As negative as it sounds it is true that the adult body is in a continual state of decay until death. However, entropy can be fought and the earlier you begin this fight, the less decay your body will have. We all will pass from this life but we have some control over when and how that passing will be, and the quality of our lives up to that fateful day, but you must begin now!
Over the next weeks I will discuss another “just one more thing” at a time, how to incorporate it into your life, and why you should do so. Depending upon where you are in this journey you may wish to keep a copy of these articles for future reference as you add healthy behaviors into your life. Some of you are well on the road, some of your are way ahead of me, and some have never heard of this idea before, so the articles will have to be written to all. It is my New Year’s wish and hope to see you take this to heart, to see you embrace wellness.
