This week's Motivate Me is about regaining control for a safer, healthier, happier and easier you.
Hello! I have to say the beautiful weather is so uplifting that it really is. ️
I go inside and the warm sunshine on my face is a welcome blessing, especially after the frost and wet weather.
This is Ireland so enjoy it while we have it.
Around the middle of 2020, some serious reports surfaced indicating an increased risk of contracting Covid-19 if your BMI was in the danger zone and / or you had type 2 diabetes and other complications the lifestyle.
I wrote about it in October, but there was no media follow-up. It fell by the wayside and the media circus moved on to the next Covid-19 cause.
Like all my colleagues, I work with customers to move the BMI bike from the danger zone to the safety zone.
To regain control, we empower our clients with a variety of CBT therapies and supportive tools.
By empowering our customers, they determine the future, a future that is healthy and fulfilling.
For some it is 12 stones, for others 2 stones and thousands more in between, but for all of these people health improvements are both visible and noticeable.
As we near this fictional anniversary of the arrival of Covid-19, I am proud of two major achievements:
- I am proud of all of our clients who have kept the course with their program, be it in the clinic or online. You did well!
- I am proud of my colleagues who are committed to the brand and who have selflessly contributed to the motivational clinics offering the greatest possible support.
The research from the USA (Tufts University) should clearly remind you of the risks of contracting Covid-19 (really any disease) when your BMI is in the danger zone.
The study suggests that up to two-thirds of the 906,849 hospital admissions for COVID-19 – or about 575,000 of them – were due to four conditions (obesity, diabetes mellitus, high blood pressure and heart failure) and could have been prevented in those patients had not yet been been in poor health.
One of the key findings / recommendations of this research is:
"Researchers urge doctors to not only advise their at-risk patients to get COVID-19 vaccines, but also to change their diet and exercise habits to protect themselves from coronavirus."
While a primary driver for customers is primarily weight loss, no one can question that the resulting health and emotional benefits are simply phenomenal.
Life is changing!
I think this saying is worth repeating: "The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is now".
We'll help you move the BMI slider.
My parting words to you today – stick with it and stay on course.
