No, not that kind of 'resolve', although I'm sure this particular 'morning after' product will be selling triple time this January 1st!

It's the other kind of resolve that I'm talking about, the one that has much longer lasting effects than a sachet of funny tasting powder…in fact your resolve for 2012 could and should last a lifetime.

Never has there been a better time, a more important time, never before have we known exactly what we need to do and how to get it done.

Our western world's health and fitness levels have never been worse yet we have amazing opportunities to be the fittest and happiest that we have ever been…all we need is a little help. As they say, it's not what you know but who you know - if you want to live a certain lifestyle you need to surround yourself with likeminded people and find inspirational guides and coaches to help you achieve your health and fitness goals.

What are those goals? How about more energy? A lean body? Less headaches? Less stress? More happiness? Less aches and pains? More strength? More 'get up and go'? More time with your family?

Pretty much all of our western world's complaints come down to a couple of simple words.

Nutrition and Exercise.

Get these two elements right and you can do 'N' 'E' thing!

Let's break these down even more and turn the clock back to when all that mattered was hunting, gathering and surviving - we would have eaten far less than today but what we would have eaten would have been mostly fresh, raw, organic veg, fruit, nuts and seeds with the odd bit of fresh, lean game meat or fish…and we would have spent hours each day walking, running, swimming, climbing and jumping in order to find this food.

Our bodies and minds would not have been stressed by worrying about how to negotiate the morning rush hour or meet our work deadlines or by consuming huge amounts of processed toxic foods. Instead we would have had the life that today's professional athletes strive to replicate. A clean diet with plenty of varied and functional exercise with lots of necessary rest, probably lying in a hammock in the sun! (With one eye open for predators…)

While life in 2012 is very different from hunter/gatherer times, we can still be extremely fit and healthy and life a long and happy life.

Nutrition and Exercise.

Make 2012 the year you learn two new skills:

1 - How to EAT clean.

2 - How to RUN efficiently.

So what are you waiting for? All you need is the right help from the right people…and a little RESOLVE!
