Thoughts on The Coronavirus
I normally don’t watch the news, but unless you live under a rock you’ve likely heard the hysteria surrounding the Corona Virus. It seems that these things come along every couple of years to try and put us into a panic.
Hey, remember Sars and Ebola? How about the Bird Flu?
Now I’m not exactly a medical expert but it seems that the only people really at risk are the elderly, the very young and the people whose immune systems have been compromised by something else.
So is it a danger? Yeah probably. Though I’m not worried about catching it myself I do have a 6-month-old at home.
But even with the dangers posed to our babies, elderly and people whose immune systems have been compromised, it seems that people are panicked about the wrong things.
It’s the thing that’s not really discussed on the news. Heart disease kills more people annually than just about any other cause of death. And it has been the reigning champion for years.
And to a large extent, it is preventable with proper lifestyle choices. People know this, but doing and knowing aren’t always one in the same.
So the next time you’re in Walmart looking for facemasks to filter out the Coronavirus (it won’t work btw), ask yourself when the last time you trained consistently and ate healthily. If it’s been awhile your panic has been put into the wrong areas.
Fortunately, it’s not too late. Find a training and nutrition system and follow it consistently and you will be surprised what you can accomplish.
And at the end of the day, people who eat right and exercise regularly tend to have strong immune systems.
