Living Healthy

Leave a comment Standard

What does it mean to live healthy? When I was younger, it wasn’t something I thought about. Fast food, soda, junk food, alcohol, cigarettes, drugs – I knew exactly what it meant to live unhealthy. As I got older I slowly purged the poisons that I put in my body. It wasn’t until about a year ago when I took my health much more serious. I’m far from perfect and I don’t even believe in perfection, but I do believe I can always improve. I need to be more consistent with my workouts, stretching and water intake. 

As I continue to take my health more seriously, I do ponder on what it really means to live a healthy life. I don’t have the answer for others, but I do have an idea what may work for me. I think health is more than just your physical health. I think living a  healthy life encompasses all aspects of your life. How does working a job you despise affect your body, mind, emotions and relationships? How does being in a negative relationship or non supportive community affect your overall wellness? What if you struggle expressing yourself and end up suppressing everything? How does a negative perspective on your identity, body image, society and the world impact your health? How does not knowing you truth affect your health and your life?

So yes, I do think health goes beyond the physical. For me, I think working a job you enjoy is important. If you are dedicating most of your time to earning money, then you might as well enjoy it, right? I think that being happy is apart of being healthy. When you are happy, there is permission for spirit. Your body runs best on your energy. When you are happy, you tend to be more present. I think health is all about being present and aware; knowing the right food to eat, the best exercise regiment for you, the right amount of sleep, etc. 

The more present I become the less tolerant I am of toxicity. I don’t have time for negative people or negative environments. What I do have time for is love and purpose. It sounds like some hippy shit, but it can be difficult to maintain a healthy body and push for your dreams. Sometimes you have to eliminate what isn’t working so you can focus your energy on what is best for you. 

Getting grounded, developing a stronger relationship with my body and connecting more to my purpose is what is best for me. That is how I continue to become more aware and more healthy. 

What does living healthy mean for you?
