The book, “Maximize Your Quality of Life, The 200% Solution” is now available for order at Amazon.com, and so we are launching a series of articles that explain some of the book’s concepts. Reading these articles may be all that you need to improve the quality of your life. We sincerely hope so. Our goal is to help as many people as possible.
Overview of the Book
The book covers three main areas of concern:
- Brain Health (110%)
- Nutrition (60%)
- Movement (30%)
It is our conceit to have the percentages add up to more than 100%. We want to emphasize how very important it is to have the right attitude in order to enjoy life, and that taking care of your brain’s physical health and mental capacity are keys to your success.
Very often, gimmicks and fads sweep across the nation’s consciousness with a new approach to fitness, success, or happiness. We realize we are lumped into that same group of advocates, but reading the book you will learn that this particular formula for success is based on the physiological reality of being humanity, the psychological phenomenon of living our lives in the media-centric modern world, and need to figure out the stress of life.
To sum it up into a pithy paragraph, if you don’t have the right attitude, you won’t be able to deal with the change of habits you need to succeed. If you don’t change your habits in such a way that you improve your brain’s physical and psychological health, the habits won’t stick. If you don’t feed your body the correct nutrition, no amount of exercise will make you feel better. And if you don’t exercise correctly, you will undo all the good you’ve done.
Let me say that in a more positive style:
If you treat yourself kindly, and change your mind about what it means to succeed, and give yourself the gift of happiness, you will find it easier to practice the habits that reinforce health and wellness. When you acquire those habits, and eat foods that are good for you, your body will respond with increased energy, stamina, and performance. And when you reinforce those habits with passionate practice of activities that are fun and beneficial to your body, you will be rewarded with improved health and feelings of goodwill towards yourself and those that are close to you.
The coming articles in this series will introduce you to the techniques advocated by Tom Matt, and the advice from the many experts he has interviewed over the past two years.
We here at Boomers Rock truly hope you find them useful.
