Do You Have An Unhealthy Lifestyle? It Could Be Suicide By Apathy!
Do you have an unhealthy lifestyle? Apparently, according to Dr. Oz’s Transformation Nation survey/test, I have one…
Chato, your lifestyle habits could be hurting your health and your quality of life. But this is probably not news to you.
(Chato says: I know. It’s not new to me. At the beginning of this year, I weighed 380 pounds. My Diabetes was out of control, staying above 250 to 378 for almost 2 weeks. My cholesterol and high blood pressure had taken a toll. In short, I was a heart attack waiting to happen. Suicide by Apathy!)
You’re just not sure what to do about it. No problem. We’re here to help [Dr Oz and ShareCare.com] you get started. The first step to improving your lifestyle, your health, and the way you feel is to think about what needs changing.
(Chato says: I recognized in December 2011 that I was in fact being very apathetic about my health. It was suicide by apathy; I could really care less if I lived or died. It’s the worst type of suicidal ideation or suicidal attempt, since you really could care less and no one really recognizes it as a suicidal attempt or ideation. But let me say this (and I’m sure I’ll get a lot of comments.) – if you are like me and stuff food in your face to deal with your emotions, you are in fact committing suicide by apathy!)
Thinking isn’t doing, sure. But research has shown that people who really think about what they’re doing and why they want to change their habits before they take action are more often successful in actually achieving their goals.
(Chato says: The good news? If we can change our attitude and adjust our attitude toward food, than we can remove the apathy. Once we start to care, things will happen! I started to care on January 1, 2012. I’m now down 35 pounds and I’m eating healthier and I’m finding more balance. I’m able to do some exercising which is also helping me immensely. Just these small changes will remove that suicidal apathy. But, no one else can do it but you)
There may be a specific event that makes you dedicate yourself to overcoming resistance — such as the birth of a child, the death of someone close to you, overcoming an illness, or being inspired by Dr. Oz!
(Chato says: For a while I scored really low on this test. It’s mainly because I always scored low on aptitude tests…I think it’s because I am either too truthful or I just have no clue what the question is!)
