Know Your Numbers – This message could save your life

If you neglect to take care of your car or truck what happens? It will break down and fail to work properly. Worst case, it is sent to the junkyard.

Luckily your vehicle has an onboard computer to warn you when something mechanical needs attention. Unfortunately, our bodies do not have similar warning systems to tell us something is wrong before it’s too late. Sometimes all that is needed is a small, inexpensive repair. Other times it needs a new transmission. Virtually no one would neglect to do it.

A vehicle that is well maintained and tuned will operate at peak efficiency for 100’s of thousands of miles. If your body is tuned up with a proper diet, consistent exercise and regular preventative maintenance, you can have a high-quality life at 80, 90 or even 100! That is my goal – 100 – I want to shoot my age every time after 80!

Drinking the Get Switched On Smoothie is one simple action step. Tracking your exercise on the Get Switched On Energy Schedule is another. Both are so simple to do! The problem is they are so simple not to do! Do not neglect the simple things in your control.

If your truck isn’t running well, you take it in for a checkup. After the diagnostic and they identify the problems you fix them right away. You do not say I will get around to fixing that transmission next year.

If the COVID pandemic has taught us anything, it is the value of being in good health, having a strong immune system and consistently exercising.

Over the last 24 years, I have helped hundreds of companies and their associates to get switched on and take better care of their #1 asset – themselves.

According to currently 1 in 11 adults in the US have heart disease. It is the #1 killer and causes 24% of deaths in the country – 1684 people a day.

The key risks for heart disease are high blood pressure, high cholesterol, Type II diabetes, depression and obesity. All of those factors are controllable and can be helped by participating in the Well-Being Max program.

The 4 behaviors that put you at risk for heart disease are smoking, eating a poor diet that is high in fat, sugar, salt, processed foods and low in vegetables, not exercising and excessive drinking. Those 4 behaviors are in your control!

1 in 9 Americans have diabetes and an astounding 1 in 3 have prediabetes. Did you know that 95% of those diabetics have Type 2 diabetes which is a lifestyle disease you give to yourself by not taking care of your #1 asset?

What is the impact of not knowing your numbers and letting them get away from you?

You could say Chip I am busy; I am doing OK. The problem is you do not know what you do not knowIgnorance is NOT BLISS!

One day you may wake up and feel something is wrong. You just know something is off. Maybe you even delay. You hear that story all the time, but you finally go into the doctor. After some tests you get a phone call. The doctor says: I am sorry to tell you that you have ___________. You are shocked.

Now you have to put in some major time, major effort, stress and money in an attempt to reverse a situation you likely could have avoided by knowing your numbers earlier and practicing some simple healthier habits consistently. It is much easier to find out the truth sooner, create a plan of action and get started now.

For you to be the best what you do, you must be the best at who you are. Health and vitality are a powerful component of that. If you are under 50 you should set up and check-up every 3 years and if over 50 it is every year. Set up your appointment up today.

Here is a powerful story of a man who took action to know their numbers AND do what it takes to change their health future.
