Weekly Health Tip

    What is your perspective about health?  It is good to think about it when you are not in a state of crisis, but when you are living an ordinary life.

    Here is mine:  I believe that our health can always improve.  If you are older, you may not lose all of the labels you have accrued over time.  In other words, you may still have a diagnosis of a disease process.  Even then, you can get better.  You can improve.  And some people completely heal.  Did I mention it usually takes effort, sometimes more than we have, meaning it isn’t something to be judgmental about.

    Age has its process but you and I both know people who are pretty old and are in pretty good health.  I call them my models of how I want to grow older.  They never gave up.  They set intentions each day whether they did it consciously or not. 

    We are purpose driven people.  Use your spark of creativity to decide:  what can I do today to improve my health?  You make choices each day that make you just a little healthier whether it be a walk, a heavy-duty exercise program, preparing yourself a meal full of love and nutrition or simply letting go of judgment you have toward yourself about not being perfect.  Take a moment to enjoy that you are here now!
