Monday Morning Motivation – Health

(Sharing Resources to Help You Grow Personally, Professionally & Financially)

Sometimes it helps to get a little dose of encouragement — along with a good cup of coffee! — to start the day.

Hopefully the message below will help you get off to a good start for the week.  Please feel free to forward the newsletter on to others that you think would benefit from the content.


We’re quickly coming to the end of the second month of 2016.  That means that for most, the New Year’s resolutions are a distant memory.  However, if you think back, you’ll likely recall that you had some sort of ambitious thought about improving your health in 2016.  How’s that going for you?

Our health is our most valuable possession.  The WHO defines health as:

  • A complete state of physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.

So I repeat, how’s that going for you?

For more than a few of the folks that read this, the answer is may be “Not so well”.  While there is no guarantee, the “not so well” crowd is probably struggling because of a lack of focus on this critical area.

It does NOT take a lot to improve your physical, mental or social well-being:

  • A 30 minute walk over lunch or after work
  • A 10 minute time for meditation to start the day or taking the time to read the Bible
  • A heart-to-heart conversation with a close friend or your significant other

Any one of these three things is likely going to improve your health.  All three together are likely going to improve your health significantly.

That leads me to this week’s challenge;

  • What will you do this week to improve your health?

Thanks for sharing a bit of your time with me this Monday morning and I wish you all the best for the week.
