Your best growing up. Was it good enough for your parents? Were your parents even in the picture? What makes you tick?Did a blog on health care reform and the need for taking a front end preventative illness approach early on. Rather than last minute million dollar try to save the patient maneuvers in our nation's hospitals. We fix the symptoms, rather than head them off at the pass early on in health class, living by example. Our kids watch us, copy us. And if pulling in to a fast food venue on two wheels and racing to the next sporting event on a kid's over booked schedule is what we show them, they crank it up and do that and more with their kids.
Is it a sense of pride to have your kid be the blue ribbon winner in every life contest and challenge?Priorites, values, what really matters and a game plan for the family. Is it the kids performance that is the source of pride? Or the reflection on the parent that is the primary or the secondary gain?
Is the family home or on the road? With 50 percent divorce rate, shuffling kids here and there between two or more homes, maybe the Disney dads and moms are trying too hard to juggle it all. Could be part of the reason for the obesity, chain smoking, having to have a drink in your hand. Lifestyle and how it causes the body parts to one by one break down and cease functioning.
The bible reminds us your body is a temple. Take good care of it, be a watchful steward. How important are your kidneys, heart, liver to you? Have you checked the price lately on Ebay for used body parts?
Health care reform and cost reduction needs components of health education, advertising campaigns as agressive as the chicken lickin' outlets that dot our strip malls, downtowns and highways.
Weight reduction, smoking eradication, health education and new lifestyles that promote relaxation. Doing family quiet time without Nascar race track paced living. Was any of that on your New Year's resolution that was placed on your refrigerator list three weeks ago?
Where you live makes a difference too. Can you say stress, traffic, smog, just too many people packed like sardines..shoulder to shoulder? Sure you can. I knew you could. That is where a rural state like Maine with family values, community spirit, and caring for others is the rule along with four season clean air to fill your lungs. Get here just as quick as you can. Less stress and more wide open living space to stretch out and relax is a start to better living. Come sample our four season beauty, the friendlier but way way fewer in number hard working folks who live in "Vacationland". I whole heartedly believe there was no better place to raise our four children than in Maine. Everything you need for outdoor fun is right here in our backyard. Three dollars of gas away from where the kids sleep at night anywhere in this state in the right hand corner of the country.
