The compound effect from 4 or 5 decades

Granite Park Chalet
Granite Park Chalet sits at 6,700 and is clearly visible here.

If you see yourself as anything other than physically vibrant it’s because of the one simple choice you justify every day.

The choice you make to justify that the daily effort required for vibrant habits is more uncomfortable to you than the daily discomfort from settling for a less than vibrant lifestyle.

Here’s some wisdom from a 60-year old: the magic of compound interest will grow exponentially in the intentional, or the neglectful, daily choices you make during your first four or five decades.

Bank on compound interest, whether you invest or borrow time.

What do you have to do in your life that trumps taking care of your health and wellness?

Worth repeating even though it’s a blinding flash of the obvious:

Your body is the temple housing everything that keeps you alive.

My awareness of health dates back to 8th grade

Disney's Grand Floridian Christmas Tree 2019
Disney’s Grand Floridian Christmas Tree 2019.

My awareness of health dates back to 8th grade.

That’s when i decided i wanted to become a Gym Teacher, or as it’s politically correct to say, a Health and Physical Education (PE) Teacher.

In 1977, i entered West Chester State College to earn a BS in Health and PE.

Nutrition.

Exercise.

Habits.

Wellness.

Teaching in public schools.

The next generation of adults.

How to live a healthy life.

So yeah, 8th grade was in 1971-1972.

Is that really 47 years ago?

Looks like my efforts to change the world failed.

The good news, i have been able to consistently change myself to become healthy and well.

Perhaps, if i’m lucky, i can help change two others to not conform to society’s poor health and habits and rituals.

Having and not having are equal?

Feynman quote
Yes and, do you expect to be healthy, because i expect you to be healthy.

Is not wanting something as satisfying as having it?

Not wanting it is like having it.

For example, chocolate. Having no desire for chocolate is satisfying. Eating chocolate also satisfies. The desire is quenched either way.

Satisfying.

No?

Except maybe, for example, not wanting personally vibrant health.
