Exercise: No Pain, Yes Gain

Posted by admin September - 8 - 2010 - Wednesday Comments Off

Exercise. The word has a negative feel to it, don’t you think? I bet the first words that come to mind are pain, work, and no thanks! LOL.

It doesn’t have to! And it won’t once you learn the truth.

The truth is that most if not all of the exercise gadgets you see advertised, and all the costly routines that are offered, may do some good but are not really necessary and certainly not permanent. Those good looking people in the ads are actors, who nearly starve themselves! LOL.

I’d advise you to not even start any of those unless you start on your own with what I’m about to tell you.

There are really only three reasons why most people are discouraged from starting and then continuing with exercise.

First, many people assume that if there is no pain there is no gain. That is not true! There is plenty of benefit from simply taking a walk, a bike ride, or a light aerobic class. I’ve always been amazed at the improvements in people’s health when they start even the simplest of exercise. They key is to keep it consistent. Get a routine going, even if it’s walking, and you’ll see a drop in blood pressure, more balanced blood sugar, feel more energy, and even become more alert in a short time. And yes, don’t worry, your excess weight will come off later!

Secondly, it’s easy to get bored with the same routines. The key to keeping it up for a lifetime is to have several options to chose from, mix it up regularly, and then make it fun! That’s why I recommend seeking your physical activity outdoors whenever possible because there are more options, and it’s generally more fun. Have you considered snow shoeing, cross country skiing, canoeing, rollerblading, rock climbing, etc? Are you fearful of those choices? I can assure you that you need to be more fearful of the problems that result from inactivity like higher incidences of stroke, heart disease and cancer.You’ve been fearful for the wrong reasons! LOL.

There are risks with any kind of physical activity/exercise. I wrote a report called The 5 Most Dangerous Exercises You Need to Avoid, and you can get it for free as a download on the right side of this web site. You’ll also find that and many other wonderful tips for optimum health in my book Whole Health Healing – The Budget Friendly Natural Wellness Bible for All Ages. You can order it securely by clicking HERE.

Lastly, what is your real motivation for exercise? I bring this up because most people have the wrong motivation, and that’s why many fail. If you exercise because you want to look better, lose weight, be more attractive to the opposite sex, etc. – these are selfish reasons and they’re not necessarily bad. But there is a much better reason, it’s a concept that I’ve observed never fails, and is the secret to obtaining life-long results – do it for God. Yep, don’t exercise for yourself, do it because you’ve been gifted with a physical body to house your spirit! This is a biblical concept that can be read in 1st Corinthians 6;19,20. It essentially says that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit. Get your mind around that concept and then optimum care of your body gets a whole lot easier and more of a priority.

And exploring more of the Bible may likely lead to your salvation!I hope so.

So, it’s easy than you’ve thought isn’t it? Sorry for taking away your excuses – but remember I do it because I love you. LOL. When can you start?

My Inner Voice Speaks Health

Here’s my story – I think this will help you.

A few years ago I stared waking up at 2-3 AM. I had long been a good steady and sound sleeper, usually in bed by 9 PM and up by 6AM. This early awakening was quite consistent after it started. At first I thought I had some health problem because I was trained to recognize that as a potential sign. But everything checked out Ok.

There’s a lot of junk on TV at 2-3 AM!

So after a few weeks of this, I started paying closer attention. A pastor told me not to fight it, that the next time it happened just sit quietly, and say a prayer asking essentially “I’m here and willing, what’s up God?”  I was shocked to find that there were amazing words in my head, words about health, healing and wellness. At first, when I became aware of this, I thought I must be going nuts because I had heard that crazy people claim to hear voices. But the words were not really voices. They were just words and they were there. Kind of like when you have a musical tune in your head, but your ears are not hearing it – your brain is.

Maybe you’re starting to think I’m nuts! LOL.

I told my dilemma to a few people I knew I could trust. One of them  gasped and said, “Oh my, you are supposed to be a writer!”

She went on to tell me that most successful writers get their material that way – they wake up with it.

“Can’t be” I responded, “because I failed at writing in school, had lousy grades in grammar, had never written anything significant, already had a successful career as a doctor, and best excuse of all – I don’t even know how to type!”

I’m an expert at denial, so off I went during my usual doctoring thing, still waking up with incredible health information on or in my mind that could help millions. Until………

On a beautiful February afternoon my daughter and dog and I decided to take a snowmobile ride (Yes, my dog like to ride on a snowmobile). We drove out to our frozen pond where we’ve driven our snowmobile many times. As we slowed down and made a turn, I felt the back of the snowmobile drop. I gunned the engine to get out of there, but it was too late. Within 2-3 seconds the three of us were up to our necks, floating in icy, and 12 foot deep water.

Our pond in summer

I immediately grabbed my daughters coat with one hand, and with my other hand hung onto the ice shelf. I boosted her out with all my might. She crawled away screaming as I screamed also, telling her to “Go tell mom to call 911!”.

Next, I boosted my dog Lou out who was whimpering. Then I attempted to get out of the death trap by getting my elbows up on the ice shelf, digging my finger nails in with all my might. As I managed to just get my chest on the ice, it broke again and down I went, this time up to my eyeballs! So I tried again on another side of the ice shelf, and by the grace of God and with the boost of angels I slowly wiggled my way up and out. As I crawled across that ice with bleeding finger nails, I knew my world was going to change.

It was the most terrifying experience I’ve ever had. I had an unpleasant tightness in my chest for weeks after that, and I still feel that tension whenever I describe the ordeal, even now as I write this and wipe the tears from my eyes. But it has changed my life forever.

The very next morning, still shaking, I sat down at the typewriter and started to peck out, with my two fingered typing style, the words in and on my mind. They poured out like water over Niagara Falls, within a short time I’d written several manuscripts. The first one is now officially published and already a hit – Whole Health Healing: The Budget Friendly Natural Wellness Bible for All Ages. You can order it securely from this web site.

I feel strongly that the near drowning experience was a wake-up call, it was God giving me a second chance for me to put my knowledge, experience, and inspired words to use to empower people to make wiser healthcare decisions. To my complete surprise, I am now a full time advocate of holistic health. I sold my practice. Every week I do several radio interviews, speaking engagements, and article submissions. I love every moment of it, even when it gets frustrating. My first book is fast growing in demand, and I’m polishing up several more to follow.

There you have it. I feel good about what I’m doing. I’ve learned to pay attention to directions from what I believe is my Holy Spirit guiding me.

Are you paying attention to the things that happen to you, considering that they may be directions from a higher power? If you’re not, you’ll lead a very stressful existence. I hope it does not take a terrifying dunk in icy water for you to take action!
