What exactly does a 12 week health and wellness program have to do with a mule?
There is an old story about a farmer whose mule fell into a dry well. The farmer heard the mule ‘braying’ — and soon discovered his misfortune. After carefully assessing the situation, the farmer decided that the mule wasn’t worth the time or expense needed to save it. Instead, he called his neighbours together and told them what had happened; and asked them to help haul dirt to bury the old mule in the well and put him out of his misery.
Initially, the old mule was hysterical and started kicking! But as the dirt continued to hit his back, a thought struck him. It suddenly dawned on him that every time a shovel load of dirt landed on his back, he should shake it off and step up! Load after load of dirt hit him in the back No matter how painful the blows, or how distressing the situation seemed the old mule fought “panic” and just kept right on shaking it off and stepping up!
It was not long before the old mule, battered and exhausted, stepped triumphantly over the wall of that well! What seemed like it would bury him, had actually blessed him; all because of the manner in which he had handled his adversity.
You might have read or heard this story before as I have, but it is a wonderful analogy to use when it comes to our health and wellness as well. I know of so many people who are diagnosed with chronic diseases such as cancer, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, arthritis etc. to name but a few. The diagnosis seems like a life sentence. They sit in the doctor's chair and hear him say, "You have this condition for life. Learn to live with it as quick as possible." Their lifelong habit of swallowing a handful of pills every morning begins. They are just like this mule stuck in a hole and unable to get themselves out of it.
The remarkable thing is that many people do not take this life changing diagnosis lying down. They get up and shake off the sand as they learn how to help themselves. They start taking responsibility for their health and well-being. They change their diet and lifestyles in drastic ways and many of them are still alive and kicking today....DRUG FREE.
The choice is in our hands, are you waiting to be buried alive in the sand or are you willing to learn new things that can potentially help you get yourself out of the hole you find yourself in? Ironically, people dig their own holes. They are ultimately responsible for the health situation they find themselves in. Your diet and lifestyle has a much bigger role to play in your overall health and wellness than you would like to believe.
We are as stubborn as mules unwilling to accept and believe that what we put into our mouths has a role to play in the chronic health conditions we suffer from on a daily basis. If you are unwilling to take the first step and start taking responsibility for your own health and wellness –suffer in silence. But don’t expect the rest of us to empathise with you as you swallow handfuls of pills and suffer from a host of unpleasant symptoms.
