Are the things that “drive ” us really the things that matter. Our 21st Century culture has been driven by such things as weight loss, hair loss -rather prevention of- and physical perfection. Leigh Vanderloo, Ph.D. has written an interesting article on exercise and weight loss for the HuffPost. Often the idea is to achieve these goals with minimal work and time. The image created by multiple medias is seen by many as unrealistic and perhaps looking at the wrong aspects of what well being, health and happiness really are. Weight Watchers and Magazines like Fitness Magazine (for women) or Mens Health are actually good sources of information, inspiration and even results for a lot of people. However, any endeavour with an aim to being “better”, more attractive, thinner, better physical condition, smarter – and the list goes on – has to be something that is based on some realistic expectations. Expectations about who you are and what you truly want to become. It actually IS about you and what is important to you – Not what the media , corporations or even other people define for you.
I,d be interested in your views n what some might think is an old topic. Do you you think it’s still important to talk about?
