Here comes something to think about …
Some time ago a local jewellery shop had an open night and many people attended. Many of the attendees were perhaps not all too healthy looking but certainly carrying pockets full of money to spend on jewellery and other accessories that make us look good.
Some days earlier a free, well advertised health presentation took place in the same area. This highly educational and motivating session cost the attendees not much more than their time. Guess how many of the community’s well dressed and good looking but commonly health-lacking people attended that talk? Did you attend?
Is in fact our jewellery more important to us than our health?
How much money do we spend on clothes and accessories?
How much money do we spend on food?
Are food , clothes and accessories more important than our health? How many of us regularly make it to the shops? How many do you think made it to the free health presentation? Did you make it?
How much does it cost to be sick in hospital? Between 2010 and 2011 a staggering 8.9 million people were admitted to hospital. Many did not plan to go! What are your plans for the future?
Do you think preventing our ugly, “Western Diet” diseases might be a good idea?
Do you think preventing diabetes, heart disease and cancer might be a good idea?
Where were you on the date of the free health presentation? Perhaps shopping for jewellery?
Do you think that “Thinking Smart and Losing Weight” might be a good idea?
What is your health worth? Some jewellery? – Or maybe even a book?
