Marathon, not a sprint.....

We've all heard this line many times, "Life is a marathon, not a sprint", but it's meaning holds true. There is another one quite similar which I am sure you all know as well, "The tortoise beats the hare". I think these sayings hold some key ideas in how we should live our lives. Unfortunately we rarely slow until we have to. Why is this? Why are we so convience and NOW driven? Instant gratification? Selfishness? Whatever it is, this attitude has to change. One realm which I feel I have the most experience in is that of health and wellness. Today, over 60% of our country is OBESE. That is a staggering number and one that is not on the decline. When one approaches the desire to start making healthy habits, realize it is not a sprint. Instead of instant gratification, make it more lasting by incorporating ways to include it easily into your lifestyle. Slowly, the old ways will melt away, along with the old you.
