Living at 100%—your healthiest, best life possible一for 100 years or more is a basic principle of The 100 Year Lifestyle. We say that your healthy, long life is your birthright time, not borrowed time. It’s a catchy phrase, but it also packs a punch if you truly get the powerful meaning behind it.
Birthright is commonly defined as a right, privilege, or possession that one is entitled to by birth. Unfortunately, for many health isn’t commonly thought of as a birthright. Perhaps that is because the reality is not everyone is born with perfect health. Today, many children are born with health challenges. The toxins in our environment, pharmaceuticals, birth trauma—these all can result in children born with anything from allergies to birth defects and more. Follow that with lifestyle choices that are coping mechanisms not the basis for a 100:100 lifestyle, and many children today might never know the potential of their birthright time.
When we speak of health at The 100 Year Lifestyle, when we speak of 100:100, we are talking about living your healthiest life possible—not necessarily experiencing perfect health. We’re talking about your body’s innate intelligence to heal itself and keep you healthy, assuming that it gets the assist it needs to keep your spine and nervous system healthy and fully functioning.
Borrowed time, on the other hand, is defined as an uncertain and usually uncontrolled postponement of something inevitable. We’ve all heard the expression, “living on borrowed time.” Another important principle of The 100 Year Lifestyle is that human beings are not meant to deteriorate. Human beings are not meant to suffer the chronic neurological diseases so prevalent today that destroy our quality of life including our ability to think, be active, and relate to other people.
From our first breath through our last breath of life we can live our 100:100 if we understand how the body works, our body’s Innate Intelligence, and make life choices to support that intelligence.
Every choice is an opportunity to better ourselves. Regardless of our health or other challenges in life, we can take charge of our situation and rise to the highest level possible. We can live at our 100%—whether we are 5, 20, 50, 80, 100, or older.
It is never too early to claim our birthright time. If you have children, make healthy choices for them today and teach them how to make their own healthy choices in the future. For yourself, remember it is never too late. Don’t assume that you have to “live with” something. Change your diet. Start to exercise. Take care of your spine and nervous system with lifestyle chiropractic care. Do not allow yourself to get into crises care mentality—moving from one crisis to the next and assuming that’s normal.
We are Not Victims
There is no time like the present to fully claim your birthright time and experience the profound effect that choice will have on the health and lives of you and your loved ones.
