It will click eventually...
I am pretty sure that fear is one of the strongest motivators for aiming at a healthier life style. It is either the fear from a bad blood workup, a death of a friend or family member, an article that scares you, or last but not least, sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. What still to this day amazes me is how we aim to achieve the highest quality of everything in our life, but aim low, or not at all at the pursuit for a healthy life.
This is something that crosses all demographics, sexes, races, ages and even work type or experience, so I am thinking it is most likely a human nature thing. Why we end up leaving this planet way too early with a lot of couldsa shoulda wouldas, is beyond my comprehension. But maybe this is just the way it will always be. There are of course others that always put their health first and primary and always will, but I am afraid they are few, and their numbers are not growing at any kind of an alarming rate.
So then it is an individual thing. We will get motivated, when we are ready, and only then, and the trigger or motivator will be one of necessity or personal health frustration or just disgust.
