Here We Go…
Inquisitive health-seeker asks: “What should I do to get more healthy?”
Internet responds: “You need to do these 101 things every single day of your life so you don’t die tomorrow from living an unhealthy lifestyle. Number 1 is…”
Inquisitive health-seeker turns around crying, ready to run away because that answer SUCKED.
OK, I added that middle section about dying tomorrow, but seriously, check out the search results for “what to do to get healthy”…
Come on, just look at that last one!
Let’s be honest, the Internet is amazing and can teach you anything you would ever want to know, including how to ride a unicycle while balancing a red ball on your nose like a seal, but…
When it comes to health: the Internet is a jungle.
And that’s putting it politely considering the sheer amount of tips, tricks, and top 1,000 lists floating around out there.
I’m getting a panic attack just looking at “The 101 Best Things to Do for Your Body Now!”
That kind of stuff makes me want to lock all my doors and just sit in my room crying. All. Day.
It’s overwhelming, de-motivational, and completely unnecessary.
The truth is that you don’t have to carry around a list in your pocket of the 101 things you have to do today (or else risk dying from a lack of health) like a lot of articles on the Internet might lead you to believe.
It’s a lot more simple than that as long as you have the right lens to decide between healthy and unhealthy choices.
