As we continue to share our ideas about a Life Reset today I am sharing an article I originally wrote five years ago. The message is more important today than ever before. Check it out and let me know your thoughts.
We hear the term "Gatekeeper" for business. You know when the secretary, assisitant or simply an emloyee protects a higher up in the corporate world. They don't allow access to that person. Well, today we are going to talk about the idea to be the best gatekeeper for your family.
I want to share a little secret about how you can be the best gatekeeper for your family. But before I do I must tell you that I used to enjoy watching The Biggest Loser. OK, there you have it.
I liked The Biggest Loser not because the trainers are killin" the contestants but how some of the contestants begin to transform into Athletes! They change!
I like to see individuals who have never believed they could win at eating well and exercise crush it. It gives me hope for the health and wellbeing of our world!
Well, last night I heard the term "Gatekeeper" for their children. One of the contestant's mom had lost 27 lbs. since her son had been a part of The Biggest Loser kids.
She realized that she was supposed to be setting the correct example for her child. This mom realized that she must be the best gatekeeper for her family no matter what.
Kids Don't Realise The Harmful Effects of Junk Food
You see kids don't know to go out and get the junk food, buckets of ice cream, processed foods as babies and they don't realize the effects of junk food either.
Their parents teach them to eat those foods.
As adults, we coach children to eat crap, processed and harmful foods. Then wonder why so many kids are having health and weight problems as they grow older like they are having today.
When the kids become teenagers, young adults or just adults with weight/health problems then everyone around them seems to think it is perfectly OK to get on their case about losing weight and how they are less than because of weight issues.
I only know this because it happened to me. In fact, all that happens is those kids, teens or adults life and they feel terrible about themselves and begin the struggle with their self-esteem.
I was one of those kids. It has taken me years to change all those bad eating habits. Now I was lucky that I was an athlete as a kid. At some level I feel it has helped me as I have gotten older to turn life around and to be active, lift weights and teach others to do the same.
My point is the kids who are in our lives must be given the chance today. We must be the best "Gatekeepers" for them by NOT giving them sugar, junk food, processed food, Frankenstein foods, soft drinks, sugary drinks.
Just living in this world, they will be introduced to all these junky foods soon enough.
We must begin to teach our kids early in their lives that eating real organic food will help them be the best version of themselves. They will be strong, healthy and vibrant.
It is time that we get the kids eating well, moving well, playing well and thinking well.
It is time to be the best "Gatekeeper" for the kids, for the future. They deserve it.
It would be awesome to hear how you will be the best "Gatekeeper" for you, for your kids for the future.
