Did you know that your health is extremely valuable? It’s worth millions! Seriously, 8.1 million people don’t believe they are diabetic and 1.5 million people have heart attacks. The tough reality is that most people don’t take care of the body we have. Heveal Kelli, Cardiologist at Emory University, said that prevention starts with knowledge. 

If we don’t know, how can we change?

Prima Sanders, a member in the A3C Festival & Conference, was the youngest on the panel but had already been faced with life-changing medical issues. Sanders, like most, lived an unhealthy lifestyle by eating junk foods but she had to have a small case of open heart surgery to unclog her arteries.  

How to Make Health a Habit:

  1. Think of the long term effects of binge drinking, smoking, drinking lean, popping pills, etc. Heval said that most rappers have seizures because of a mixture of lean and popping pills. Definitely not a good combination.
  2. 15 minutes of HIIT ( High Intensity Interval Training ) will cause a change in health.
  3. Use your phone to find workout apps that will help you stay healthy.
  4. Healthy foods don’t have to be expensive. Go to the local farmers market where fresh veggies and fruits are priced low and last longer.
  5. Don’t be defined by the entertainment industry when it comes to health.
  6. Don’t push yourself too much. Learn how to have a balanced diet, water and rest.
  7. Learn how to say “no” when it comes to having to do multiple task when you know you need to rest.
  8. Health can affect your performance; for good and bad.
  9. Small changes can make a big difference.
  10. Manifest the life that you want.

Don’t be a statistic! Take the initiative and learn more about the foods you consume, get tested to see if you have a disease and if so, take care of yourself. Too many young people are dying before their life expectancy because of poor health.   

Thank you to Raychell LeBlanc, Heval Kelli, Prima Sanders, Deniece Grffin and Tim GilChrist for sharing great information with the audience.
