Dieting lessons from my daughter’s first birthday

So, today is my daughter's 1st birthday.

Doesn't time fly, ay? It only feels like yesterday that I was sat in the birthing suite sipping my 13th coffee whilst rubbing Mrs Fruci's back 😉

And it's a reminder of just how precious time really is. After all, it's the ONE resource that's truly scarce in today's crazy world.

So what can we do to not only live longer, but live longer with good health?

Well, researchers interviewed people aged between 90-100 years

Not only did they find that their mental health statuses were 5 times better than those in their 50s....

But they also found that they:

1)  Had a good work ethic

2) A strong family bond

3) Positive thinking

4) Had a tendency to CONTROL

The researchers said they had:

a "tendency to control the environment"

Which seems to be a "desirable trait as they are true to their convictions and care less about what others think."

and my question to you is this:

Where do you need to focus more on what you can control?

You see, if you ask someone how their day has been...

I can guarantee they talk about things out of their control: The weather, traffic, road works, emails, work, car broken down...

And we all do it.

We stress about the things we can't control. Waste all of our energy there. 

And end up having no energy or willpower to control the things we CAN control...

Your food, exercise habits, thoughts about how you look / feel, confidence in yourself, patience with loved ones...

Which is crazy, right?

And with out life expectancy in the UK now plateauing between 79 and 82 years of age...

I want you to do this one task for me:

1) Take a piece of squared paper (or an Excel document)

2) I now want you to colour in a square for every year you've been alive (example: If you're 50, colour in 50 squares)

3) Now, put a black mark next to the 82nd square.

4) Look at the gap between the colours and the black mark on the 82nd square...because - on average - that's how long you have left...

And considering that?

think about what you're currently scared of doing? Fearing failure. 

Is it the social event you're avoiding because you think others will judge you?

The clothes you want to wear again but don't have the confidence?

the job you want to go for?

The energy you want to have?

Why am I telling you this?

Because I don't want you to have any regrets. 

So, stop wasting time on the stuff you can't control and make it happen!

You can probably tell how fired up I am today.
