I never really understood why zombies (and everything to do with zombies) have gotten so incredibly popular, until recently. If you aren’t aware of it, today there are zombie TV shows, zombie movies, zombie 5k runs, even a haunted hayride where you can shoot live zombies with paintball guns. This isn’t just Halloween week, this is all year long!
Look around you and ask yourself - are we all becoming zombies? Are you one??
Today men are stressed to the max, living on caffeine and junk food, not getting enough sleep, working too much and then still thinking about work when they aren’t working. They are counting the days until retirement, but along the way there they’re destroying their health and the potential to actually enjoy their retirement and latter years. Everybody misses “the good old days” but has no idea how to get back to the energy and fun and fitness they used to have, and they think it’s just part of aging. Days become years, years become decades, cheeseburgers become belt notches, Tylenols become Zofrans and Trazadones, heartburn becomes a heart attack.
Women see marketing and advertising that if they just eat this food or use this product or take this pill that their life situation will improve – their wrinkles will disappear, weight will be lost, happiness will be had. Sadly, the more likely reality is that their diet and stress and toxic personal care products will contribute to hormone disruption which will contribute to fatigue, brain fog, weight gain and more serious symptoms, often autoimmune. All they want is to slow down the aging process, but in reality everything they are doing is speeding it up. They medicate themselves out of depression, medicate themselves out of pain, medicate themselves out of stress, and eventually out of happiness.
Where does our zombification start? From the beginning! Kids sit in front of the TV, or the Nintendo DS, or the iPhone, or the tablet, or the computer, or the X Box… and become zombies. They eat GMO food loaded with sugars, additives, and colorings, all of which cause hyperactivity, then they get medicated with psychotropic drugs to “control” their behavior. They have the freedom and the imagination to run and play outside but they choose to stare at devices instead.
So maybe the zombie craze really is a reflection of what is happening in the world today, and maybe it is getting worse out there, but there’s always hope. It doesn’t have to be you or your family. Live life. Be happy. Be healthy. Get outside. Get your kids outside. Put down the electronics. Take care of your spine. Eat real food. Detoxify your life!
