A NOTE FROM GAIL
Hi. Its almost Christmas so I am going to make it short today as I know its a busy time for all.
I want to say thank you for all the Christmas wishes that I have received I am overwhelmed by your kindness. At a time of over indulgence those wishes and words remind me that the best things in life are free. Words of kindness,getting together with friends and watching the laughter and smiles from the children.
The gift of health is not guaranteed for all but exercise can be free and can enhance a life.I found a great quote this week ‘I do not run to add days to my life but life to my days.’ Find the appropriate physical activity for you and you will understand what I mean with it. This year alone I have seen people of high risk obesity related diseases become fit and free from medication,families and friends laughing and training for challenges together. People who found out what ‘well’ and energetic feels like who regained confidence after years of insecurity and its all down to their change of lifestyle. Simple changes.
Should you still be lacking motivation for 2013 I will leave you with some facts for our future. It is these facts that drive me to help people find an easy healthy lifestyle to suit them.
FACT 1 Parents could soon outlive their own children as a result of diet-related illnesses. One in 10 children starting primary school in Britain is now regarded as alarmingly overweight
FACT 2 One-quarter of children are overweight or obese at the age of four. By the age of 11, this rises to one-third.
FACT 3 A recent department of health report says -Given the impact on individual health, obese and overweight individuals can place a significant burden on the NHS, with direct costs estimated to be £5.1 billion per year. But there are also costs to society and the economy more broadly – for example, sickness absence reduces productivity. Future choices report estimated that weight problems already cost the wider economy in the region of £16 billion, and that this could rise to £50 billion per year by 2050 if left unchecked.
If you have achieved your healthy lifestyle change and feel good then give the gift of health to a friend or family member in 2013 and show them direction.There are many routes to take.
