We all know that getting healthy can bring tremendous amount of positive results in our lives… but did you know that being healthier can also help you become smarter?
Perhaps this sounds like a strange idea, but when you break it down, it can clear up some speculation.
1. The brain is a part of the human body
2. When we are healthy all the parts of our body are able to function properly.
4. Being healthy can help your body better maintain one of its most important parts, the brain!
Strange has turned into simple.
The overall health of our brain and our bodies can have a major impact on how well we are able to perform certain cognitive functions.
If we partake in unhealthy activities such as smoking or becoming overweight, we increase our risk of unhealthier brains and cognitive abilities. In order to keep our minds in tip-top shape, we must take care of our bodies’ health and well-being. Who knows, perhaps increasing our health can also help us increase our wealth?

When it comes to dieting, exercising, and just overall staying healthy, many of us would probably be classified as insane! How many times have you tried the same or very similar diets over and over again? How about the exercise routine you are doing, is it actually working and making results? Often times, we won’t even notice that we are beating ourselves up over something so silly and obvious, try something new!
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
Do Something. If it works, do more of it. If it doesn’t, do something else.
Our former president sums things up pretty well for us in a simple quote. The point is, it doesn’t really matter what you do, it just matters that you are doing something. If and/or when that something stops working, then try something else!

As America continues to stay on top as one of the unhealthiest countries in the world, we are seeing a tremendous growth of obesity and weight issues among our adult population and children as well. INC.com has noted that “according to the Center for Disease Control, approximately 17% of all children in the U.S. are obese.” They are the future of our country, and they are looking bigger than ever before.
I don’t believe that short term solutions work very well for truly solving any problem, therefore, we must look to longer-term solutions that are responsible and sustainable now and into the future. The current children of America are the future of this country, and it is up to them to decide what will happen down the road. So why do we do such a poor job at teaching them healthy habits and such a good job at raising them to make bigger health mistakes than ourselves?
I’ve talked with my younger cousins, my friend’s kids, and other children and they excitedly tell me how much they love eating fast food and playing video games all day. It’s quite alarming if you think about it, our next generation seems likely to be worse off than we already are.
So, how can we fix the problem? It is known that prisons often serve better food than our public schools do. Children are eating at least one meal- five days out of the week- that is high in calories and low in essential nutrients that the body needs to stay fit and healthy. I am almost certain that many of them consume many more meals throughout the week that consist of fast food or other unhealthy meals. We teach children how to read, write, and do arithmetic in school, why can’t we teach them to eat healthier and stay more active as well?
At least one company has set out to do something about this problem. Revolution Foods is helping to bring access to nutrient rich meals that taste good to low-income schools. They have realized that by targeting schools with healthy food alternatives, they can help make the world a better and healthier place to live!
What other ideas do you have that could offer a long-term solution to getting America’s health back on track?

Will this help our eating habits?
We are all guilty of not eating healthy all the time, but we are probably even worse at making healthy choices when we are out to eat. When the menus are overloaded with delicious looking foods that are just screaming our names, its hard to pick that wimpy salad when it’s sitting right next to a picture of a hot, thick, and juicy hamburger. So, is it the restaurants fault that we make poor healthy choices when we go out?
The Government has taken a closer look at this question and has come up with their own solution; make it mandatory for fast food restaurants and vending machines to display nutritional information. At first glance, this sounds great…but then you start to think about it, and you might realize that you never paid much attention to those labels anyway and that they can play psychological tricks on your mind.
So the question is, do you think giving consumers more information will lead to healthier choices?

It is so easy to take your finger and point it at someone or something else as the cause of our weight problem here in America. We could easily blame all the fast food restaurants that sit on every corner, the internet for allowing us to not have to physically be everywhere, or the fact that every check out counter is loaded with candy bars that we can’t resist as a last minute purchase.
Blame someone else, its as easy as pressing a button.
Just because we can blame almost anything for our weight problems, doesn’t make us right. We need to realize that the most responsible party for our weight control is not the fast food restaurants, the advertising, or anything else of that sort, but rather, it is ourselves that need to be held responsible.
Sure it might not be entirely your fault that you are the way you are, but you are the one who is ultimately responsible for making any changes for yourself. Your mother and father may have raised you to have poor diet and exercising habits, but as an adult, it is your responsibility to acknowledge and change those habits if you desire.
Stop placing the blame on others, and realize that if you have the time to complain about something, you probably have the time to make a change.
