The sort of news that sets you back and you start to question.
You start to question why it has happened.
This weekend, we’ve had a family bereavement and rather than hiding the fact and putting up a ‘Personal Trainer’ persona, I’m happy to share my life with you – happy or sad.
When someone in your family is taken from you, it’s difficult to comprehend. When they are taken from you suddenly, that makes things a hundred times worse.
You go through many different emotions, usually starting with complete shock.
The people left behind are left to contemplate and have to piece together the sequence of events that led to that outcome.
Of course, you have to get on with it and continue with your day-to-day duties but it’s not easy.
This year has been tough so far, what with famous musicians, actors alongside people closer to home passing away. I’ve never known anything like the first 2 months of 2016. It seems that every day, there is someone you know who has sadly died.
I’m quite a deep thinker and I do sit for some time and think about it all.
What is life all about?
What can we do personally to live a healthy life and give ourselves the best chance of living to a grand old age?
Who knows in the grand scheme of things but I guess all you can do is try your best, with a little hope in your heart.
We strive to eat well, keep fit, sleep the right amount of time, control stress, drink enough water and add some hope to all that.
Genetics can also play a part and if you’re prone to a genetic defect, you may not be able to do anything about it.
So, my advice is to try your best to live a healthy life. Do more of the things that can improve your life and less of the things that restrain healthy living.
