 Being in control of your life and having realistic expectations about your day-to-day challenges are the keys to stress management, which is perhaps the most important ingredient to living a happy, healthy and rewarding life. Marilu Henner

 

What does health mean to you? It’s easy to just say physical health even though, there are other areas of our lives that can contribute to our wellness or ill-health. When we think of health, there are a few other key elements we must consider as we build a path to healthy living. We must remember that to maintain a healthy living plan, it is imperative that we care for our Physical, Nutritional, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual Health; add to these our Financial health and our Service to others. Unfortunately, many of us tend to put all our energy and resources in one of these areas to the detriment of the others. We wake up on Mondays and feel rotten because we are out of balance and running on empty. Creating balance by caring for all areas of our lives is key to healthy living; the wisdom behind doing everything in moderation still holds true today. As our society becomes more digitized and our attention span shorter than a 140 character tweet, we must make health a priority. What does that mean? It means that we must be cognizant of the impact stress has on our lives, our skin, and on our well-being, and do everything possible to manage our lives with more self-care and compassion. If any of the seven health points above are in extreme imbalance, we will be susceptible to ill-health. What are you doing to create balance in your life? How do you motivate yourself to stay healthy?
Did you Know the Top Five Stress Related Health Conditions? Heart Disease, Belly Fat/Obesity, Gastrointestinal Problems, Depression and Anxiety.

Today, more than 95% of all chronic disease is caused by food choices, toxic food ingredients, nutritional deficiencies,and lack of physical exercise. Mike Adams, The Health Ranger

Do you know that the food you eat, exercise, hydration, rest and relaxation are very important for your skin health and your overall health? When neglect any of them, we suffer the consequences. Some people don’t make enough time to do the above well because they think that having material things will make them happy, healthy and wise. But, we all know that the secret to a satisfying life has more to do with being content with our lives, being healthy, and offering our help/services to others. What will we gain from having all the toys and riches in the world, if we have no loved ones around to enjoy them with us? What will we gain from hoarding all our abundance and not helping others when we can’t take it with us when we pass away? A good question to ask ourselves everyday is: How can I help and be of service to others today?

A Story: Dissatisfaction Town
Once upon a time, there was a wise young woman, named Sapiens, who lived in a town full of dissatisfied people. It didn’t matter what good came into their lives, they wanted more. They saw each other as competition and never as a community; life there was brutal, nasty and short.  One day, Sapiens was out taking a stroll, contemplating how to help her townspeople. As she walked through a forest adjoining the town, she came upon a beautiful little lamb. It looked lost and sad. Sapiens thought about what to do and considered carrying it back to town. However, she knew there would be a huge argument over its ownership. She sat with the lamb and soon fell asleep. When she woke up, she saw a huge giant of a man staring at her. He had the kindest eyes and a mysterious, even magical aura about him.

“Thank you dear child! I’ve been looking for my lamb and I’m glad you kept him safe from the animals that roam this forest.” said the giant.

“Oh, thank you! I fell asleep and I’m glad your lamb is still here.” Sapiens replied.

“For your thoughtfulness, I will grant you three wishes but, be careful for your wishes will have an impact on others – Now, ask away!” the giant said in a soft but firm voice.

Sapiens thought about it for a moment and then said:
” I wish for health and contentment for my townspeople/community.”
“I wish that all their needs will be met.”
“I wish that they will be of service to others.”

“Wise choices …. very wise choices. They are granted.”  Said the giant.
“The only twist is that when you offer these wishes to people in your town, they must accept the gifts without argument. If they question the gifts or ask for more, they will not come true.” The giant told her, with caution in his voice.

Sapiens was thrilled and, thanking him profusely, she ran back to town to share the news. She was convinced that everyone would accept the gifts and become more caring of each other and themselves. She told her family what happened and they were wise enough to say  “Yes, to the gifts!” and in the blink of an eye, they felt a deep sense of joy and wellness. Story Continued below the break

 

How do you motivate yourself to stay healthy?  Health is also about the company we keep. If you spend your time with negative, angry and dishonest people, sooner or later, that energy will seep into your life. Choose your company wisely and spend time enjoying those people who add goodness to your surroundings and life.

“In today’s world, people experience two types of poverty: the poverty caused by lack of food, clothing and shelter, and the poverty caused by lack of love and compassion. Of these two, the second type needs to be considered first because if we have love and compassion in our hearts, then we will wholeheartedly serve those who suffer from lack of food, clothing and shelter.” Amma

 

A Story: Dissatisfaction Town: Continued
With no further ado, Sapiens’ family sent out word to the townspeople that they had a great gift to share with everyone and that, at 7pm, all should gather in the town square. Some arrived at 5pm to be first on line. Some sent their house-help to hold their spot, while others showed up at 5:30pm and started cussing those in front of the line. Even a few arrived at 6pm and started scheming, looking for ways to undermine those in front.  A handful of townspeople came and remained quiet, as they observed the meanness and bickering going on.

Soon Sapiens and her family arrived and, with great joy in her heart, she shared what happened in the forest with the gathering of townspeople. She told them that the giant said it would only work if they accept the gifts without argument. Before she could finish her sentence, a fight broke out. The people in front were angry that those who arrived at 6pm would receive the same gifts. Others were stressed out and full of doubt. The schemers wanted the gift to themselves alone and started arguing about why they were more worthy. Some asked “What’s the catch?” And on and on they went until it degenerated into a free for all fight. The few who had listened attentively, approached Sapiens and, thanking her, accepted the gift…  As promised, they felt a shift of wellness inside and went home convinced that life would improve for the better… The rest? Let’s just say, the name of the town hasn’t changed. What are the many lessons here? One lesson that stands out is that Wellness is a gift we must give ourselves.

As we work to maintain our own health, we must develop a pure heart and cultivate qualities that will calm our minds down; we need qualities like patience, introspection, self-care, selflessness, kindness and compassion for others. Why? Because the opposite qualities drain our positive energy and affect our own health. People who spend their time quibbling over minutiae tend to have health issues that are exacerbated by their constant need for friction. Some anger and discontent is fine but, don’t make it a lifestyle. As you start the week, keep this story in mind and do good for yourself and others.

Doctor Knows Best: Did you know the following are 10 fixable stress related health problems? Asthma, Headaches, Alzheimer’s disease, Accelerated aging, Heart Disease, Belly Fat/Obesity, Gastrointestinal Problems, Depression, Anxiety and Premature death. Stay Healthy!

    So true. I choose to be happy because it truly is good for my health. Stress and holding on to anger really does affect your health. Thanks for the inspiration once again!

    I have dubbed 2015 the year of health for myself and my fiance. We just got health insurance for the first time in many years and have been basically been getting everything checked out to make sure we’re healthy, and if not, how to get healthy/healthier. It is going to be a process, but we are so ready to finally be at our best!

    It’s true what they say that health is wealth – and when we talk about health, it isn’t just about eating healthy & exercising, but more importantly it also means that we need to have a positive mindset and yes, as you said, cultivate a good heart. I believe that good health promotes happiness as well. Anger, stress, hatred are killers. Great post as always.

    I agree health is more important than wealth. Wealth is useless if you don’t have the fitness level to enjoy it.

    I love the Voltaire quote! Health is definitely more important than wealth – but then in the UK healthcare is pretty much accounted for, whereas I know so many american friends who have to fight for their care.

    love the story about Sapiens. A similar story runs in the Bible where a vineyard owner offers work to men. some work just a few hours , some finish the work time as required , others exceeded it. But at the end, All are paid uniformly. so grudges sinks into the workers mind.

    I guess, being content with what you have is essential in one being happy, and happiness constitutes a big part of being healthy.

    Wow, such great information. I have to agree with one of the previous commenters, my family’s health is one of my main priorities. Healthy eating is hard these days with all the fake foods available.

    I think that health is a state of mind first. We can fight many disease with our inner strength and positivism. A problem in the body signalizes about a problem in mentality or emotions.

    The partner and I go backpacking/hiking/camping at least once a month and while it doesn’t seem like much, walking more than 4 hours with a 12kg pack on your back is hard work. It’s the only exercise I ever get though. Which is why this post is a reminder that I should focus on my health – I’ve not been able to relax a long time now since we’ve been rendering long hours at work, too.

    Health should be anyone’s number 1 priority. Many of us are working too hard, and ignoring their health. They end up spending all their money to health care, checkups and maintenance. It’s not worth it.
