When you think about having perfect health what areas come to mind? is it just about your physical health? and have you ever had someone tell you what perfect health really means? I admit my definition of perfect health was only based on how healthy I was physically, it was where I was at in my life with a limited understanding of the extension of what this term means.
I’ve since discovered that physical health doesn’t equate to perfect health, and there are other factors combined that determines perfect health. Our definition of perfect health will differ and that is OK. If your definition of perfect health means to have no physical ailments, be in the best physical shape, eat only organically grown foods, avoid processed foods and alcohol, then you would automatically do what’s required to live true to that belief of how you define perfect health. I believe the important thing is to practice living our lives in accordance with how we define perfect health.
My definition of perfect health is about making conscious choices that will have a positive impact on my physical, mental, emotional, financial, social and spiritual life. Have I always been this way? Heck no, it’s been a process of learning, applying, changing and growing, and that process continues every day. It’s about what’s important to me, what brings me the greatest fulfilment, joy, peace, love and contentment, in those areas. For example, when I take 15-20 minutes every morning to meditate, I find my attitude and productivity throughout the day to be better, than when I don’t, so that’s now a daily practice in my life, and the benefits overflows to other areas as well.
Whatever impacts my life in a positive way and makes me a better person, I keep at it. Is perfect health attainable? I believe it is! By the way, the absence of a body part or ability to see, hear or speak does not mean on our health isn’t perfect. I can have perfect health even if I am missing a limb, hearing, eyesight or ability to speak.
I believe Perfect health is attainable; here’s my short answer and what I think it means:
It first requires you to define its meaning – (not what I think it means or someone else) it’s about you defining the meaning for yourself. Then using the meaning to evaluate how the areas of your life line up with your definition.
That awareness now becomes a call to action – the areas you’ve identified…what action steps do you need to take to implement your definition of perfect health?
It’s in the doing – remember, it is a process, if you are ready to live out your definition of perfect health, you have to activate the plan. Is it worth it? One zillion times yes, because you are about to be pro-active, in guiding your life in the direction of how health it will become. The benefits will have a positive impressionable impact which will improve your life for the long term on so many levels.
You define it, now you are responsible to live it.
To your health and enjoyment!
