Leading a lifestyle that contributes to your overall well-being sounds easy enough, right? Unfortunately, for many people it’s a daily struggle.
To help inspire you and jump-start you on the road to a more vibrant lifestyle, here are my top 25 quotes on health and wellness.
#1. “The higher your energy level, the more efficient your body. The more efficient your body, the better you feel and the more you will use your talent to produce outstanding results.” ~ Tony Robbins
#2. “Most of us think we don’t have enough time to exercise. What a distorted paradigm! We don’t have time not to. We’re talking about three to six hours a week – or a minimum of thirty minutes a day, every other day. That hardly seems an inordinate amount of time considering the tremendous benefits in terms of the impact on the other 162 – 165 hours of the week.” ~ Stephen Covey
#3. “As for butter versus margarine, I trust cows more than chemists.” ~ Joan Gussow
#5. “He who takes medicine and neglects to diet wastes the skill of his doctors.” ~ Chinese Proverb
#6. “Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.” ~ Jim Rohn
#7. “Exercise is a journey, not a destination. It must be continued for the rest of your life. We do not stop exercising because we grow old—we grow old because we stop exercising.” ~ Kenneth Cooper
#8. “There's a great deal of scientific evidence that social connectedness is a very strong protector of emotional well-being, and I think there's no question that social isolation has greatly increased in our culture in, say, the past 50 years, past 100 years.” ~ Andrew Weil
#9. “What you put at the end of your fork is more powerful medicine than anything you will ever find at the bottom of a pill bottle.” ~ Mark Hyman
#10. “We must all travel the distance of a lifetime in this body. If we don’t care for it, how can we reach our goals.” ~ Swami Kripalu
#11. “People are fed by the food industry, which pays no attention to health, and are treated by the health industry, which pays no attention to food.” ~ Wendell Berry
#12. “The way you think, the way you behave, the way you eat, can influence your life by 30 to 50 years.” ~ Deepak Chopra
#14. “For many of us, eating has surprisingly little to do with hunger. We eat out of boredom, for entertainment, to comfort or reward ourselves. Try to be aware of why you're eating, and ask yourself if you're really hungry—before you eat and then again along the way.” ~ Michael Pollan
#15. “Your brain doesn’t know when you’re kidding. Random thoughts such as “He gives me a pain” or “This job makes me sick” are viewed by the right brain as instructions.” ~ Unknown
#16. “True health care reform cannot happen in Washington. It has to happen in our kitchens, in our homes, in our communities. All health care is personal.” ~ Mehmet Oz
#17. “Health is a state of complete harmony of the body, mind and spirit. When one is free from physical disabilities and mental distractions, the gates of the soul open.” ~ B.K.S. Iyengar
#18. “Medicines cannot drug away the cellular defects that develop in response to improper nutrition throughout life.” ~ Joel Fuhrman
#19. “Real food doesn’t have ingredients, real food is ingredients.” ~ Jamie Oliver
#20. “Those that think they have no time for exercise will sooner or later have to find time for illness.” ~ Edward Stanley
#21. “If you don’t make the time to work on creating the life you want, you’re eventually going to be forced to spend a LOT of time dealing with a life you don’t want.” ~ Kevin Ngo
#23. “Believe in yourself and all that you are, know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle.” ~ Christian D. Larson
#24. “Wellness is the complete integration of body, mind, and spirit—the realization that everything we do, think, feel, and believe has an effect on our state of well-being.” ~ Greg Anderson
#25. “People tend to think of breakthroughs in medicine as a new drug, a laser, or a high-tech surgical procedure. They often have a hard time believing that the simple choices that we make in our lifestyle, what we eat, how we respond to stress, whether or not we smoke cigarettes, how much exercise we get, and the quality of your relationships and support can be as powerful as drugs and surgery.” ~ Dean Ornish
Reaching your health and wellness goals will require more than just reading inspirational quotes, and adherence to a regimen of eating and exercise. Its foundation lies in your attitude, and having a clear understanding of who you are; mind, body, and spirit.
Success is what you say it is; don’t let others define it for you. You are your own author. What is the story you want to write about yourself?
It’s time to dust off your dreams and sweep your own ass off of your feet!
