Why Wellness Won't Wait

Why Wellness Won't Wait

Barney Fife, one of my favorite TV characters from the Andy Griffeth Show, had a sensible approach to law enforcement. He was a proponent of stopping any problem before it got bigger— preferring to "nip it in the bud".

Knowing that we are facing a threat makes taking decisive action easier. When it comes to well-being, though, the threats can sneak up on us.

Of course, we've all heard about the things that we can do to take care of ourselves. Unfortunately, when we can't see an obvious benefit, we may not feel as motivated to do them. Everyone is attracted to that exercise plan that will give them toned muscles, or that eating plan that will help them lose unwanted fat. Lifestyle habits like nurturing relationships, activating the relaxation response, connecting to a sense of purpose, or creating healing environments provide benefits that are hard to see or measure.

In reality, some of the most important benefits of any of these wellness habits are completely invisible. Through the science of epigenetics, though, we now know that our daily choices are impacting our well-being at the cellular and genetic level! Like the processes that govern blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol — these epigenetic changes are not things that we feel. But these small changes influence the drivers of inflammation, aging, and chronic disease.

This is why wellness cannot wait!!

Consider these facts:

By the time someone gets a blood test that shows that they have diabetes, about HALF of their insulin-making cells are dead or not functioning. That did not happen overnight. But it DID happen without their awareness. They just don't SEE the threat until they look at the numbers on the lab report.

FifeMy friends, this is just one example of why we need to intervene earlier. We live in a culture that is pulling us in unhealthy directions, and if we want to avoid chronic disease, we have to "nip it...nip it in the bud"!

We do that by making intentional investments in our well-being. These investments don't just pay off in terms of helping us prevent disease. They also give us access to higher levels of vitality and satisfaction. That sounds like a great return!

Hopefully, you wouldn't wait to start investing in your child's college account until their senior year of high school. I imagine that you would want to start investing in your IRA long before you were close to retirement.

Your wellness account is a wise investment. What deposits are you willing to make now?
