John Murphy – Q&A

John Murphy, Founder, Make 100 Healthy

How do you define a healthy lifestyle?
It’s a combination of physical fitness, mental and spiritual balance. It’s staying active and engaged. It’s about starting each day with an attitude of gratitude.

What does your exercise schedule look like on a typical day?
I’m a morning bird with my fitness regimen. I work out with my trainer at 7 a.m. every Tuesday morning. I go to the gym three to four times a week and combine weights, cardio and stretching. I swim 10 to 15 minutes, followed by a hot tub soak and then a 10 to 15 minute steam shower.

It’s the foundation of the rest of my day.

What is your best health/wellness tip?
To always put your health first. To keep moving and staying consistent in your habits, including what you eat. Slow and steady wins the race!

WHAT IS YOUR NEXT GOAL IN YOUR HEALTH, WELLNESS JOURNEY?
I started Make 100 Healthy to set a goal to live to 100 years or more with health and vitality. But it doesn’t happen by accident. That’s why I’m proud to lead the Prescott Food Forest @ B Organic Farm.

We teach the full eco system of growing, harvesting and eating real, nutrient dense food. After all, you are what you eat.
