How is your health?

When someone asks you “how is your health ” what do you say? Do you politely say I feel fine or do you give it some thought?  Our health is our greatest asset and without it there is not much we can do. 

According to the National Center for Health Statistics more than 66% of people in the US over the age of 20 are overweight and 29% of people over 20 have high blood pressure. Yet, only 30% of adults engage in regular leisure-time physical activity with 31% of Americans still smoking in (2005) and 20% of adults had 5 or more drinks in a day the past year.  Research indicates that moderate exercise can strengthen the heart and help lower blood pressure as well.

Yet many people who know these statistics and with full intentions to make lifestyle changes often never get around to actually doing it.  This is one of the reasons health coaches are becoming popular. 

A coach can help you set and maintain goals for a healthier lifestyle.  I am writing a book on health…mainly it is about ways to improve your health naturally.  I want to be able to use ideas and info that would be usefull in todays world.  I invite you to share some of your health goals /challenges.  What do you think is the number one obstacle between most people and good health?
