Wellness Wednesday: You tell us.
Today, I pose the question: Why do you want to be healthy? It is a known fact that if you don’t have a good enough reason to do something, one that motivates through the hard stuff, you won’t do it. So, I ask you to share your thoughts about this important subject.
Here are my reasons as I stated in a recent comment on BlogHer.
Health is natural. The concept is simple, but the actions required to obtain health are not always easy. We were naturally made to enjoy strength, vitality, and a long, fulfilling life on an equally healthy planet. It’s sad that this has become such a challenge.
Health is responsibility. My mother died at age 59 – far too early for my taste. She lived a life of ill-health, most of which was by her choice. I choose life. I choose responsibility. I choose my golden days to be spent with my children, grandchildren, and even my great grandchildren.
Health is freedom. When you’re sick, you’re not free to work, play, create, travel, have sex, write, or simply enjoy the company of another. It’s the way to be if you want to act on your dreams, even the foolish whims that might get you into trouble.
Health is legacy.What example you live has impact on every one around you. Your actions speak to your world and your DNA is passed along to your offspring. The health footprint you leave is your legacy that will live longer than you will.
I choose to think about all of the above reasons to find and keep my health. I choose the natural way, to be responsible, to be free, and to leave a positive legacy for generations to come.
Be well-be beautiful
