When Pleasure Outweighs the Pain…

pain-and-pleasure

Almost every choice we make in  life is motivated by one of two powerful forces….the desire for pleasure and the fear of pain.  Although we say that we don’t want to feel pain if we can help it,  the prevailing force for many is the desire for pleasure regardless of the pain that comes with it.  This explains a lot when it comes to health and wellness.

How many times have I heard “there is no way I’m giving up my sodas” even when I’ve had the opportunity to scientifically demonstrate  the dangers associated with their habit?   It doesn’t seem to matter that there will be a long-term price to pay and that their health will eventually surrender because of it.  They’re living for the moment and they chose pleasure over pain almost every time.  Undoubtedly they are addicted to their pleasure (and their sodas).

How many times have I heard “I’m not giving up the convenience of bottled water” even when I’ve had the opportunity to scientifically demonstrate to them the dangers associated with the pleasure that comes with their need for convenience?  It doesn’t seem to matter that there will be a long-term price to pay and that their health will eventually surrender because of it.  They are living in the “fast lane” and they chose the pleasure of convenience over the pain almost every time….regardless of the  consequences to their health (and the environment).

The next generation is suffering because of the pleasure choices we continue to make.  The exposure to radiation, pesticides, GMO’s, BPA, Aspartame, etc., are just a few of the things that are causing a lot pain and whether you can see  it or feel  it yet is not relevant.…you (and your family) will ultimately pay the price for your pleasure-driven decisions.  When things autism, arthritis, kidney disease or cancer strike your family, don’t say I didn’t warn you.

There is an old saying that goes like this “no pain…no gain”.  Nothing could be more true when it comes to making wise decisions about your health. Isn’t it time you set aside your pleasures to protect your health and the health of your family for generations to come?

You might miss the pleasure that you get from your sodas but you’ll be avoiding pain later on and your body will thank you for it!

You may suffer with a little inconvenience by refilling your water bottle with healthy water but you’ll get over it eventually and your body will thank you for it!

You might feel the pain of having to read food labels and look up all of those words you don’t understand but you’ll learn in time and your body will thank you for it!

What do you say?  Will you continue to chose your reckless pleasure over the painful consequences  and roll-the-dice on your health or are you ready for a little pain that comes with healthy change?
