Do you ever wonder what drives your behavior around health?
Do you seek care at the first sign of illness, or do you delay care until things get severe? Perhaps you give more attention to the health of family members over your own?
Do you have no problem following a healthy diet, or do you struggle controlling what you eat and how much you eat?
How many times have decided to increase your level of exercise, motivated by an on line or TV fitness personality, only to fall back into the same old pattern of low activity and too much time spent sitting.
IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT
While you may blame yourself, or blame it on your lack of willpower, the truth is it's not your fault. It's not your fault because you don't care enough; it is not because you didn't try hard enough. There is another deeper reason.
Perhaps you have a family member or friend who is the perfect picture of health, who has no problem staying active, eating right, staying strong, and maintaining a healthy weight. It seems so easy for them.
The fact is, your friend or family member may not be entirely responsible for their superior health either. While it may appear so, there is a deeper reason.
AN UNSEEN FORCE
The truth is, there’s a powerful force shaping the health of ninety percent of adults in the U.S. This force draws your behavior around health into specific patterns. This pattern limits your ability to flexibly adapt to new health situations.
I discovered this unseen force over 30 years ago. I had just welcomed my third daughter into the world and had no idea that over 30 years later it would be my dominant mission in my life to share the impacts of this force, and finally give people the ability to see it and potentially change its influence on their health.
As I watched my daughters grow, their behavior around health were at opposite ends of the scale. One daughter was naturally active; the other was mainly sedentary.
and as I watched all three grow, I could see how each one developed a different attitude about their health. One cared only when she become noticeably ill and never took an interest in exercise. My second daughter couldn’t sit still, took up running, gymnastics, resistance training and paid attention to her diet. And my oldest daughter just didn’t seem to think about it all.
Now, as I watch my grandchildren, I see the same patterns emerging with each, but this time…
What's the PATH of your health?
