A lot of us who love hip hop music and have grown up with Nate Dogg are privately reflecting on his death and how this hits home because we’re either his age or close to it.    These days we’re hearing about  younger individuals dying or experiencing failing health.  Nate Dogg dead, Serena Williams…pulmonary embolism, Keith “Guru” Elam…died of cancer at the age of 48 and our beloved songbird Teena Marie recently died at the age of 54. Brother brother what’s going on?

Nowadays its a bit naive to believe your youth gives you a pass to die sooner than later.  Many health conditions can be prevented through proper exercise, diet and healthy living.  Who wants High Blood Pressure or Diabetes?  Let’s not forget that Stress also plays a major part to our bodies breaking us down physically, mentally and spiritually.  DON’T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF!  Life Is Too Precious. It is not wise to think your body can be subjected to unnecessary neglect and wear & tear.  There will be consequences that won’t be good.

Diabetes, Stroke, High Blood Pressure and Obesity are being diagnosed to individuals younger now.  These conditions don’t discriminate.  Why would they?  If you’re not doing what you’re suppose to be doing what makes your body immune to these terrible afflicting diseases?  What can You and I do to help prevent this?

Exercise 3-5 days a week

Eat more vegetables

Drink more water

Get proper rest

Sounds simple right?  What are you waiting for? Let’s GO!

Are you treating your body right? Do you put YOU first and get the proper amounts of exercise, sleep and nutrients?

How can YOU be an example for your family, friends and loved ones?  Thoughts?  Suggestions?

We’d love to hear from you.
