4 Questions to Set You Up for a Healthy Week
By James Mills, Associate Partner, Lighthouse International
“Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live.”
- Jim Rohn (Entrepreneur, Author & Motivational Speaker)
Many legends have shared the benefits of looking after their bodies and physical health through exercise, nutrition and getting the appropriate amount of rest. Quite simply if we do not look after our physical health, then the other areas of our life will suffer. We all know the consequences of not nurturing ourselves - we feel tired, drained, get sick and get frustrated quicker.
On the other side if we exercise, eat well and get the rest we need we feel more energised, alive, stay healthy and find it easier to remain patient. This is also scientifically proven - according to the NHS exercise alone can reduce our risk of major illnesses, such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and cancer by up to 50% and lower the risk of early death by up to 30%!!
With this in mind here are some questions to help you focus on your health and fitness this week...
My passion is education because I feel that so many more people would be able to lead happier, more successful and fulfilling lives if we all had access to a more inspiring education system. My vision is that we have an inspiring teacher in every classroom; I realise that there’s plenty to be done in order to bring that to life, but committed to doing what it takes to bring together the people and resources to make that happen.
As an Associate Partner at Lighthouse International and Co-Founder of Lighthouse Kidz I am committed to developing my ability to bring together emerging leaders and social entrepreneurs to make a positive difference in the world. Presently I’m working on a variety of initiatives such as bringing together the people, expertise and resources to ensure that everyone has access to clean water.
