Let’s say you’re the richest person in the world. You have anything and everything you could ever want! You’ve started companies, written books, gone on tours—you name it But you’ve been pretty busy, and more often than not, you haven’t paid enough attention to your body. Listen to this Dr. Mark Hyman podcast for some help.
We’ve all been there. You gotta work late, so you skip that workout. You’re too tired to cook when you get home, so you hit the drive-through at your favorite fast food place. You swig soda to stay up late, and then you do it again the next day. But now your body isn’t in the best shape. You’ve put it second to your career goals, and now, it’s starting to show.
Maybe you’ve started having headaches or backaches more often. Maybe you just feel too tired to get through your work day. Maybe it’s more serious, and you’ve been diagnosed with a disease like diabetes.
Or maybe you just have what my guest today refers to as “FLC” or “Feel Like Crap” Syndrome.
Your health is a different kind of wealth. Working hard, doing your best at your job, and taking care of your finances are incredibly important, but so is taking care of your body. If you neglect your body, your body will neglect you. And as you age, this only gets harder. You won’t be able to enjoy life because you’ll feel tired, sick, or miserable.
Of course, exercise is vital to maintaining good health, but so are the foods that you eat. Our food choices have the power to make us feel energized and ready to take on the world. Or they can make us feel sluggish and sick. The food we eat has a huge impact on our brain chemistry and our physical health.
And not only that, but our food system also has a massive impact on our community, and even on climate change. Truly, the way we make and eat food is a huge deal. It’s easy to keep eating the processed food that’s so easy to get every day, but if we want to start investing in our health and in our community, it’s time for a change.
If there’s one person who knows how to help, it’s Dr. Mark Hyman.
This Dr. Mark Hyman podcast episode is one of the most helpful health episodes of The School of Greatness.
