Make Time - Take Time

If I told you that you would have millions of dollars and never have one financial worry for the rest of your life if you would only baby crawl for 30 seconds everyday, would you do it? Of course - you probably would. 

What if I told you that you that you would have strength and health well into your 90s if you would only baby crawl for 30 seconds everyday? Would you do it? Would you really? Be honest. Most of us would let that slip by, not too intentionally, but we would fail to crawl everyday. 

Why? Most of us would strive for financial security before we would strive for our health. But why? There are few things more precious in life than being healthy enough to actually enjoy life. Ask a person in a rest home if they would rather have money or if they would rather have their health. Guess what, if they are in a nice rest home, they probably do have money. They don't have health. 

Money can't buy happiness, and it can't buy health either. Money may not even lend itself to happiness, but Health does lend itself to happiness. Having good Health comes from taking time each day to make conscious, good decisions about how we move and what we eat. Being healthy is a daily, if not momently, choice. 

The good news is that the choices that lead to being healthy do not have to be difficult. It really can be as simple as taking 30 seconds out of your day to baby crawl. Yes - I really believe that, but only because it is true. Look around you. The true things, the effective things, are the simple things. Simply crawling like a baby a little bit each day can help you build reflexive strength throughout your entire body. It can even nourish your brain and develop new neural connections. Baby crawling is not just for babies. 

All we really have to do to be healthy enough to enjoy life as we age is to take a little time each day and apply deliberate thoughts and actions to becoming better. Health, Vitality, can really start with simply crawling around on the floor. 

Don't believe me? Try it for 30 seconds every day for the rest of your life. When you are 90 and still independent, able to climb stairs and feed yourself, send me an email. My email address is I'll be glad to hear from you. You'll be glad to reach out to me.

Do it. I'm waiting on you.
