It’s easier to exercise and eat sensibly during:
- Youth – the full pressure of job, Family, mortgages is unknown
- Mating season – (once we’ve mated, what’s the motivation?)
- Wake up calls – motivating because of glaring consequences
The reality? In the big scheme of life, youth lasts say 20 years, then fades quickly.
Humans are born to mate, like all living creatures. Wake up calls may take a lifetime before they start arriving.
It’s all the other times in our lives that are the real challenge, the real key. Look around people.
Like I suggested a while back, “If aliens found Earth and gave us a pass/fail health grade, what would we get”?
