Being healthy is many things but I feel the biggest player in life is how we respond to it. We all face daily situations in our personal lives and even the workplace. How we respond to these circumstances can create a healthier, happier, and stronger person.
Being healthy includes more than the physical and nutritional. It also includes our emotional and spiritual health. If anything in our life is out of place, health is just not complete.
When a problem arises, we can choose to mishandle the situation or solve it in a healthy way. Many times issues are out of our control. The truth is the only thing fixable or controllable is yourself. We’re not responsible for the actions or behavior of others, but what we do have is the actions and behaviors of ourselves. Life can be made to feel complicated and depressing or carefree and happier simply by how we respond to situations.
The same principle should be applied to how we take care of our body. Do we nourish it well, exercise it enough, and provide adequate rest for it? What are your actions telling your body and how is it responding to you? Are you getting great healthy feedback or receiving messages of fatigue, illness, weight gain, depression, and stress?
Our body is a good barometer of how we’re living life. A healthy lifestyle reflects itself from the inside out. If we’re doing a great job with eating right, working out, and emotional happiness then our body will feel pretty amazing.
If we choose not to listen to our body cues to get our act together, guess what? We will be hit with weight gain, stress, illness, and usually being pissed off at the world for our problems. It’s up to each of us to listen to what our body, mind, and spirit are telling us and take appropriate action. It will be the responses in life that create our health.
