Is there a correlation between a healthy lifestyle and success? Sure, Warren Buffet—known for his love of junk food— may be the exception to the rule but sometimes we need not look far to find successful people who jumpstart their day with doing or eating something healthy.
Inspiring healthy habits
The Obamas, even while in the White House, worked out for 45-minutes to an hour and ate a healthy breakfast before starting their demanding day. Oprah Winfrey has consistently harped on the importance of eating healthy—and she has an entire vegetable garden to prove it. Mark Zuckerberg regularly runs to keep fit wherever he is the world while Amazon big boss Jeff Besos says eight hours of sleep does the trick.
What these famously successful people share is not only a healthy way of living but also a fearless and everything-is-possible attitude. Whether one is a result of the other, this potent mix has brought them to the height of their successes, inspiring so many others along the way.
Within our own workplaces, there is probably that one admirable boss who practices a clean, healthy way of living that results in more productive days and better work relationships. Better ability to focus, improved confidence and enhanced ability to follow through were directly attributed to improved fitness levels according to a 2007 University of Georgia study.
Healthy eating and achieving success
An article in Forbes takes health a step further by saying that healthy eating, in particular, can mean better leadership in the workplace. “Eating well can work with one’s body chemistry to keep energy levels up throughout the day.” Non-processed foods such as vegetables, grains, and fruits keep the body’s energy levels from crushing by mid-day. These same foods also make the gut healthy, the article continues. “Basically, about 90 percent of receptor sites for serotonin, the chemical that makes you feel confident, happy and motivated, are in your gut. As a result, many scientists believe that if you keep the bacteria in your gut healthy by eating healthy, these receptors will be healthier and you will be happier.”
In starting a habit of eating healthy, natural is always the way to go and one of nature’s best gift to mankind is the acai berry. The fruit—a superfruit, really—is not readily available anywhere as it only grows in the Amazon rainforest. Organique International has been promoting the benefits of this phenomenal fruit through its supplement drink Organique Acai Berry. Founded and bottled in the US, the drink provides that health boost for people of any age who like to celebrate their successes and live long enough to share the good life they’ve built with their loved ones.
Acai berry, also called “Purple Gold,” is a superfood known for its anti-aging and weight-loss properties. Through the years, science has proven that it has more to offer. It has high levels of antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins that give it its anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer properties.
It is equally rich in potassium that help control blood pressure; iron, copper, and manganese for healthy bones and blood; and B-complex, Vitamin K, Niacin, Vitamin B-6 as well as Riboflavin to help the body process carbohydrates, proteins, and fats more efficiently. It also contains Omega-9 and Omega-6 fatty acids that reduce bad cholesterol therefore cutting down the risk of heart disease.
From the Amazon to the Philippines
Organique Acai Berry packs in natural raw extracts that brings together the best nutritional combination. The Premium Blend is considered one of the best concentrated juice drinks in the market as it combines the highest nutritional content with delicious taste. From the Amazon jungle and the US, Organique Acai Berry now finds its way to our shores, making this superfood, packed in a high-quality drink finally within the Filipinos’ reach.
Sure, we won’t find Warren Buffet adding acai berries to his diet of burgers and cola anytime soon (that’s what his life insurance investments are for), but for the rest of us who are more like the Obamas, Winfreys, and Zuckerbergs, we know that a sound investment in our health will have exponential returns in the future. This, for many, is the true value of success.
