Absolutely correct! I have been an athletic person my entire life thanks to my dad. By that I mean participating not sitting on a couch watching it on tv.

I have also been a gym rat since I was 14 years old and even go when I am on vacation.

I spend a tremendous amount of time OUTDOORS. Be it walking the beach, digging and planting (constantly) in my gardens or just floating in my pool.

Food & proper sleep are also huge! Massage and chiro are also factored in monthly. Plus yearly physicals and dentist every 3 months. Everything is connected! Happy and healthy

No drugs; no doctor visits; nothing in excess (except, perhaps, at times, Haagen Dazs ); no HFS or neurotoxic, artificial sweeteners; no gmo; organic meats and veggies and grains; positive, optimistic mindframe; work on keeping my glass half-full; working on mitigating EMFs as best I can without sealing myself off from modern civilization; exercise is primarily "play" with grandkids.

Regarding staying healthy - I religiously get some form of exercise at least four days a week - running, jogging, walking, hiking, biking (well, my bike needs some TLC), rowing, etc. Parking far away from front doors. Taking steps instead of elevator.  And trying to eat relatively healthy. No meat three days/week. No desserts. Not too much bread.

Regarding being productive, managing my calendar seems to be the best way to stay productive for me. Get up early, spend a few hours doing specific work, then exercise, then appointments/etc.

I eat "clean" and I workout 6 out of 7 days a week....my workouts consist of weight training....I lift "heavy" once a week...my max is 200 pounds dead weight off the floor...... the other days I do "training weights" of less than 150 pounds.... sets of 10 reps....

this is a method of practicing discipline...it takes focus to lift that amount and discipline to work it everyday....

I work online every day.....

Lets see.....staying healthy

1. Never eat the whole pizza.

2. Buy only liter containers of diet Coke.

3. No smokes after noon.

4. The Pizza Hut buffet is a great value.

5. Binge watch Nina and X-games and big fat loser while munching popcorn on the recliner.

From what I see surrounding me that appears to be the formula.

For me, 25 miles a week on the trails, 2 hours a week in bone stress agony, and watching fat cry is more like what I do. The key thing is, do those things you believe you can not do, in the environment you control, to confirm to yourself you are FULLY ABLE.

Now apply FULLY ABLE to your work.
