102: Lessons for Hannah - Health
Hello Misfit Nation! Welcome to another edition of "Lessons for Hannah!"
In November of 2016, we introduced a new format that we are putting alongside our regular episodes called “Lessons for Hannah.” Hannah is my daughter and one of the main inspirations for the Misfit Entrepreneur. I wanted to have a place where she could go and learn from her daddy and his Misfit friends throughout her life….even after I am gone. If you haven’t listened to the first episode of "Lessons for Hannah," I urge you to as it gives some more background and tells the amazing story of how Hannah came to be in our lives.
"Lessons for Hannah" are short, very useful, and sometimes comical lessons, that I have learned which I want to share with you and give to Hannah to help in your lives. Because I want Hannah to have these for her life, I’m going to speak as though I am talking directly to her. These episodes are a lot of fun and if you think there is a lesson that we should include in these episodes, please don’t hesitate to send it over to us at email@example.com. We’d love to share it.
This week’s Lesson for Hannah
I want to talk to you about your health. You have grown up with your mother and I and we have done the best we can to model a healthy lifestyle for you. Your health and fitness should be a focus in your life because good health and fitness habits impact all areas of your life from your work to how you feel about yourself to your relationships.
I want to share a few of the best tips that have allowed me to get into even better shape now than I was when I played college football and that make a huge difference in all areas of my life, including success.
But, before we begin, let me say this – Your body is a temple. It is absolutely amazing. If you just sit back and think about it for a second, it is truly magnificent how everything works the way it does, how each cell knows what to do as part of each organ, how our brains work, our hearts, how everything comes together to work in an almost perfect harmony. It really is a wonder and deserves tremendous respect. I have realized this more as I have gotten older. Like a lot of people, I was not as kind to it in my younger years, but I have always believed in the benefits of healthy eating and exercise – maybe with glass of good wine or a beer or two sprinkled in from time to time. You’ve gotta enjoy life too!
But, what I am about to share with you starts with a respect for your body no matter what. No matter what society tells you about “perfection” or some airbrush picture displays – none of that matters. Focus on your body with a sense of love and gratitude because as I have said before, for us to even be alive is a miracle. In fact, the chances of any of us being alive right now are 1 in 10 to the 2,685th power…or virtually zero. Seriously, It’s the probability of 2.5 million people getting together — about the population of San Diego — each to play a game of dice with trillion-sided dice. They each roll the dice — and they all come up the exact same number — say, 550,343,279,001.
Ok, enough of my soapbox, here are the top 10 things I have found that you or anyone can do fairly easily to have a great impact on your health.
Hannah, I know that you have either seen or heard me talk about these health tips before, but I wanted to get them all in one place for you. I hope that you find a way to incorporate them into your life and use them to keep yourself healthy and enjoy life to the fullest.
I love you, Daddy.
If you are an active person like me, you should be rewarded for it. As a husband, a father, and a business owner, I know how important it is to make sure you have the right life insurance in place to take care of your loved ones should something go wrong, but is too much to ask for the company selling me that insurance to take into account the fact that I love to run, swim, bike, hike, and just about anything else I can do to stay fit? – I don’t think so. And that is exactly what Health IQ does.
