You’re going to love it because I have some really great special health tips coming up for you from Colorado just after the new year! That’s right, each winter I leave my beautiful place in Reisterstown, Maryland on the east coast, head west and spend about four weeks in Breckenridge, Colorado to ski, write, and basically enjoy the Rocky Mountains! If you are in the Summit County area, maybe you can find me and we can ski down the mountain once together!
Before I leave for Colorado, let me share something very important with you that I would like you to take very seriously. If you have read my book, then you know in the seventh chapter I talk about how important it is for you to be mentally at peace. I have found over the years that no matter how much you exercise and how well you eat, if you have something digging away at you that is not right (for example, hatred towards someone, a bad job, or a bad relationship), you will not be healthy. Sure, you can try your best to bury the bad feeling but it does not go away. You know it deep inside.
So today on this final day of the year, please promise me that you will try your best to take care of anything bad in your life. If you have hatred towards someone, please let it go. It has been proven time and time again that hatred is a killer. It eats away at you. Please do not be bitter at anyone. You will be healthier when you forgive. Try it and you will see what I mean.
If you are in a relationship that is not ideal for you or have a job that you do not like, now is the time to make a change. Sure it may be tough at first but in the long run these things always work out for the best. I personally have been through all of these and please take it from me first hand, you have to make these changes or you will never be healthy. Once you fix them you will be happier (and healthier) than you have ever been in your life!
Happy New Year. Stick with me in 2011 and we will grow together!
