"Normal" Isn’t Normal

Just because it’s common does not mean it should be normalized.

People often think that when something is common, then it must be right and should be accepted as it is. This thinking has been embedded from generation to generation like a virus, devouring and hiding the sad reality from the truth that is difficult to accept. This is very evident in our daily lives and it holds true for how our bodies function.

People often think that joint pain, back pain, obesity, weight gain, weight loss, and unhealthy lifestyles are OK and normal.

This is due to the fact that the majority of society dictates and shows how one should love and cherish what they have—-healthy or unhealthy. I don't mean to imply that this is a negative way of thinking, but I do want to underline that without adequate knowledge about the effects of harmful behaviors and lifestyles, people tend to believe what society portrays about how one should value and appreciate oneself.

Instead, they change the facts, sugarcoat the reality, and feed it to people to believe.


Today, people believe that getting sick with age is normal, but is it really?

Today's public announcement:

It's not normal for joint pain to prevent you from walking more than a block or get you winded before you’ve reached your destination. Likewise, having a medicine cabinet with more pills than a gumball machine has gum isn’t normal

We decide what gets in and what we do with our bodies. As the famous saying goes,

"Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live "(Jim Rohn).

A popular quote at every fitness event, but a reality that many overlook.

We make decisions about our bodies 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. Are we trying to get younger with us being the ones who have full control of our bodies? or get older each day? Is what we eat worth it? Is doing nothing fulfilling? Are you content with what you do with your body every day?

If your answers to this are " NO," then maybe this is a sign for you to change your lifestyle and start living a healthy life NOW.

It is never too late to start.

Now, let me be clear about one thing.

As David Samson, a former president of the Miami Marlins of Major League Baseball, once said, "Father Time is undefeated." But Father Time is very much open to negotiation.

It is our utmost responsibility to take care of your joints; increase your strength; improve your flexibility; maintain a healthy weight by eating sensibly. And your body will reward you with many more years of healthy, happy living.

Feed your body Netflix and Pop-Tarts, and you’ll be "rewarded" with soft, weak muscles and a pantry filled with pills. You are what you eat. You may enjoy those 30 minutes of chips and a savory flavor, but are you truly benefiting from them? Is it worth it?

Why not do and make a better choice?

A much better option is to feed your body with strength training, an abundance of other physical activities, and real, wholesome foods. Your reward will be a fountain of youth – and the ability to do what you want when you want, just because you want to. Your body will have no reason to hold you back. In fact, Your body will be motivated to keep pushing you forward.

"The choice is yours."

Get up and reassess your lifestyle. Your life is more valuable than that bad habit.

Do it now, do it right, and soon you will receive the fulfilling reward of life.
