A healthy lifestyle is no more a distant dream. People are living it, they are going by the centuries old adage: ‘health is wealth’. However it should not be taken leniently that building an overall health and fitness ecosystem for personal happiness and other gains come easily. Healthy living and wellness has all the advantages such as free from negative health issues, hidden diseases, obesity, mental stress, depression and anxiety, and so on.
But do you know a good health is not all about six-packs or hitting the gym just for fun and hobby? It is way more than you could think of. Inculcating great health in your lifestyle demands a drastic mindset. Mayur Mathur’s part fiction, part self-help, “Honey, It’s Not about Six-Pack Abs” is all about that mindset one needs to accept health as one of the vital part and packages of life. It’s not a ‘what and how’ book. It derives you to that point where mentality changes and you add and accept health to the core of your life.
Broadly putting, this book derives a transformation through four stages: Set your Identity Blueprint, Lock-n-Load your Arsenal, Unlock yourself, and Let’s Get to Brass Tacks!
Each segment/stages has a plenty of content that will full your takeaway basket with insights and real knowledge. The book is loaded with many chapters, subtopics, references, examples – in fact all that is needed for a positive mind shift. The author asserts that if you succeeded in developing a mindset for health, ultimately you enter the vista of health, fitness and overall wellness. That’s the magic of mind shift.
The author starts the journey of mind set with his own story as how one day he was made to sound deplorable in others views. As you chug ahead with stages, the book first takes you to the basic obstacles that keep you limited from gaining an optimum health. He talks about resolution and values and why they suck. The value topic is of great importance. In fact values shape us, it’s up to us, whether we want to assign our health value or not. If it’s not assigned any value, your priority for good health will always lag behind. To make us understand the power of value, he gave one example where he was drunk and could not save his closed one…because that time his value priority was drinking.
Further, he talks that fitness is not what we assume. It’s neither a destination nor have any fixed definition. We can understand a lot about fitness through the art of questions, this topic was way ahead of its time, it answers all dilemmas that one face when chasing fitness goals. Pillars of fitness with coveted examples are another shining aspect in the book.
At the end of each chapter, you will have points to ponder and reminders. In Mayur’s writing health enthusiasm was visible. He busted myths about health and went to explain the real reasoning as what is needed to get that desired mind shift. In its essence, the book is way deeper, probably transcends our vista of comprehension.
