Life is a… “Do it Yourself Project”

I like to share this story every now and then because, if you are anything like me, I need this gentle story to remind me that it is time to re-focus on my health… to realise that if I remain complacent with my food and exercise - my health, my mood, my sleep, my immunity, my work, my mindset, and my waistline will suffer.

It is time to take back control of your health, regardless of the challenges life has sent us this past year - and enjoy the benefits that optimum health brings.

An elderly carpenter was ready to retire. He told his employer, a contractor, of his plans to leave the house building business and live a more leisurely life with his wife enjoying his extended family.

He would miss the pay cheque, but he needed to retire.
They could get by.
His employer was very sorry to see his good worker go and asked if he could build just one more house as a personal favour.
The carpenter said yes, but in time it was easy to see that his heart was not in his work. He resorted to shoddy workmanship and used inferior materials. It was an unfortunate way to end a dedicated career.

When the carpenter finished the employer came to inspect the house.
He handed the front door key to the carpenter. He said, “my gift to you”.
The carpenter was shocked. What a shame! If he had only known he was building his own house, he would have done it differently.

So it is with us. We build our lives, a day at a time, often putting less than our best into the building.  Then with a shock we realise we have to live in the house we have built. If we could do it over we’d do it much differently.
But we cannot go back.

You are the Carpenter.
Each day you hammer a nail, place a board, or erect a wall.

“Life is a do it yourself project”.  Your attitudes and the choices you make today, build the “house” you live in tomorrow. You cannot go back, but you can go forward…

Build it Wisely!

Do You Need Help renovating you ‘house’?

The prolonged stress and uncertainty that has infused our lives this past year has very much drained our inner resources and it has been so easy to compensate by letting ourselves ‘off the hook’ when it comes to food choices and exercise. Continually indulging in comfort foods and skipping exercise are very easy choices to rationalise. But when we have been rationalising these choices for an extended period of time, we have in fact, re-wired our brain pathways, and these choices have now become automated – they are less than desirable habits that we don’t actually think about them anymore.

And therein in lies the challenge.

Breaking undesirable habits and replacing them with healthier versions requires a decision and an action plan. And if your health is a high value of yours and you are not living aligned to that value, then often a short-term program which aims to reset your nutrition, your exercise and your lifestyle may just be the answer to living your life fully aligned to your values and purpose.

The Mammoth Health Vitality Challenge is a Comprehensive, Professional Detox and Cleansing Challenge that has been expertly designed to safely and thoroughly reduce the toxic load on your body.

It will leave you with more energy and vitality to live your life to its full potential.

Remember, Life is a ‘do-it-yourself’ project. Your decisions and choices your make today, build the mind and body your live in tomorrow. You cannot go back, but you can go forward.
