What is Healthy?
What Does a Healthy Lifestyle Mean to You?
That is not a straight question that can be answered with a simple definition. What is healthy is actually a “loaded” question and many people are surprised by the answer they get. What is healthy can take on so many meanings, but the true definition of what is healthy and what it means to you will change depending on what you are looking for. Let’s start with the simple definition of what is healthy.
Health, as defined by the World Health Organization (WHO), defines health in this way:
Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
Now that definition may not have been what you expected, but what it does do is lead us to our point. What is healthy cannot be answered in one simple definition, and that is because what is healthy is all-encompassing, and must be a proper balance of your physical, emotional and social well-being. Or another way to put it, a proper balance of your physical health, your emotional health and your financial health.
Yes all three items are intricately tied to your overall health. You cannot be truly healthy if you are lacking in one of the three areas. Your physical health must come first, as, without this, nothing else matters. It is here that most people will stop though. They will look to see what they need to be healthy, will change their diets, eat healthier, and continue their old habits in their emotional and financial health, and question why they can never truly be healthy.
Improving Your Physical Health
Improving your physical health is the first step in ensuring you have a healthy lifestyle. It is also something that will not happen overnight and will be a life-long journey. If you are not eating healthy, if you are not exercising properly you will need to replace these habits with ones that promote your healthy lifestyle.
With the speed at which we move each day and the activities that we have crammed into our lifestyles, we understand that it can be difficult to find the time to exercise and eat correctly. It will take a commitment on your part to make it a priority. Once you make this a priority you will be amazed at how you will find the time that you thought didn’t exist. In addition to this, we also have some amazing wellness products that can fast-track your health.
Improve Your Emotional Health
Improving your emotional health again like everything else is a life-long journey. The most successful entrepreneurs are always growing and feeding their minds and soul. This is necessary because life will always test you. It will test you to see the amount of success that you can handle. The bigger the person, the more they can handle.
This comes not from the size of bank accounts but the size of their heart! Do not wait until you face a challenge that you cannot overcome to start your personal growth. Just as you will make a commitment to exercise and healthy eating, so must you make a commitment to continuous personal growth.
