Not by accident

Not by accident

Weight doesn’t creep up by accident. We put on weight when we don’t pay attention to what we’re eating.

The reason we lose our strength and fitness isn’t a mystery. It’s because we don’t pay attention to it.

We don’t get injured because we’re surrounded by some cosmic circumstances. We get injured when we don’t pay attention.

This stuff doesn’t just happen. It happens when we don’t pay attention.

Sometimes it’s because we’re tired, preoccupied, concerned. For whatever reason. But often it’s because we choose to not pay attention, or we just can’t help that our attention wanders.

Now, of course, there are exceptions. Someone runs the red light and rams into your car. You get a diagnosis that shatters your world. There’s a hole covered by leaves that’s impossible to notice. The neighbor drops off reheated prawn curry.

But the things that we can control often go meatloaf because we’re not paying attention.

What needs more of your attention right now?

It might have nothing to do with your health. And that’s ok. Because whatever it is, it’s now getting the attention it deserves.

So that eventually you can pay more of your attention to your health.
