Stay Healthy—Our Lives Depend On It
What do you think of the importance of your health? Is it important enough to do something about it?
What does “health” mean to you though? Most people think of physical health when they consider improving their health. After all, it is the season of New Year’s resolutions. Right? Is that all that really means though?
Our health is more than just physical health though. Intellectual, spiritual, emotional and what I call relationship health all contribute to our overall health.
Are we preoccupied with the opinions of others or do we give others room to be themselves, even if we disagree with others’ opinions?
Do we worry about life being fair or do we understand that we can only control what we have control over?
Do we worry unnecessarily? Do we consider ourselves happy?
Our overall health is dependent upon the interactions of all of those elements of our humanness.
How we handle our emotions depends on our mental state. Are we preoccupied with how we feel and the opinions of others? Do we feel healthy when our emotional state is substantively negative?
Finally, a healthy mind and body affects our internal outlook on life, which is apparent and clear to others.
For each of these health-related elements of our lives, we need to take action in order to make changes. And, this is going to take habits changing.
