Most people have heard of the rule of 80/20 and its many life applications. In my wellness talks when I share that this ratio applies to our likelihood of suffering from major chronic illnesses, people seem surprised.
It's common to think of illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes and stroke as having a big genetic component. In reality, our genes are only about 20 percent of the equation. We have so much within our control.
Our lifestyles---what we eat, our exercise routines, and our stress management practices---all contribute directly to our risks of suffering from major chronic illnesses. Taking a proactive and intentional approach to our own personal wellness is empowering.
To your good health!
