Jeff Schneider | Why Wellness?

Why should one prioritize wellness? Look to Jeff Schneider for the answer. He’s a great example of how a simple wellness plan can positively affect every facet of your life. Renowned personal trainer and wellness enthusiast, Greg Anderson explains that, “The concept of total wellness recognizes that our every thought, word, and behavior affects our greater health and well-being. And we, in turn, are affected not only emotionally but also physically and spiritually.” Likewise, Buddha is quoted saying, “To keep the body in good health is a duty otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.” Jeff Schneider, CEO, father, and dedicated athlete, couldn’t agree more.

Some people find it challenging to help others and seek wellness. It can be arduous, inefficient, draining, and even discouraging, so it’s not for the fainthearted. Volunteering is often revered and described as altruistic, but it’s rare to see it described as brave. People who volunteer their time are very brave to say the least. We are all given a certain amount of time on this planet and what we choose to do with it is a reflection of ourselves. To use that limited amount of time to help another person – that’s selfless and that’s what makes humans so amazing. We give one another a variety of reasons to not help each other and yet there are those humanitarians that do. Jeff Schneider is focused and committed to helping the less fortunate – one step at a time in any way he can.

Jeff Schneider works hard, but at the end of the day, he understands the value of work-life balance. He doesn’t want to look up from his desk one day and realize that he’s compromised his personal health for business accolades and success. To him, the quote from the following Dalai Lama rings true. When asked what surprised him most about the world, the Dalai Lama replied, “Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”
