What Does Health Mean to You?


One of the main reasons to have a simpler life, is so you can have time to take care of your health. And health is much more than just weight loss. To me it also means:

  • Good sleep
  • Deep breathing
  • Exercise
  • Life-enriching foods
  • Intellectual activity
  • Less TV, more music
  • Light
  • Watching stress and worry
  • Steam to help my breathing
  • More calcium and fruit and veggies
  • Less junk food
  • Relaxation
  • Body awareness- am I hungry, tired, stuffy, etc.
  • Laughter and smiles
  • Healthy relationships
  • Quiet time
  • Water
  • Vitamins
  • Nature
  • Good environment to live in
  • Breaks

How is your health? What is your body telling you? Try taking one weekend this month to focus on your health. Maybe go to a class, visit the grocery store for fresh fruits and vegetables or practice relaxation. Give yourself a mini health retreat.

After your health retreat decide on what changes in your health need to be made. Pick just one change and start to work on it.

    Good health to me also means…

    …having the energy to do the things I love and to do things for the people I love,

    being able to think clearly, concentrate and focus so that I’m able to do my work well and learn new things,

    having strength, flexibilty and suppleness so that I can continue to play, run, dance and keep up with the kids I teach.

    I answered your question on my blog but I also wanted to say that my health is much better than it used to be. I have lost over 80+ pounds and that alone has changed me in so many ways. My body now is telling me that I need to stick with it because I’m worth it. I go to 5 classes a week at the gym and also do other workouts and love it.

    A mini health retreat, hmmm a massage sounds divine right about now *wink*
