“Health is more than the absence of disease”
When we’re sick, we can barely imagine being well.
When well, we whinge about how little sleep we’ve had.
Too often we fail to recognise positives – even when they dwell within our own beings.
We care more for our hair than our minds. More for our cars than our bodies. More for our time than our friends.
It is beneficial to evaluate your outlook, if only to find a positive. To recognise aspects of your life and mindset that help to enrich your life and the lives of those around you.
Happiness has a place in this discussion. While many search for it, often leaving mindless trails of consumer destruction behind them, it is not a staple of wellness. It is a fluid body that can be reached by the simplest of forms.
Being well in mind does not mean one is always happy – just as being fit does not mean never being out of breath.
We must understand what sustains us, in body and mind, and pursue those things without guilt, fear or embarrassment.
