There is no end to the health advice you can find online. From doctors telling us to eat more meat and no bread, to others who tell us to cut out fat, add more olive oil, avoid all oil. Even doctor Oz weighed in this week, encouraging governors across the nation to have more sex, as a way to lead healthier lives. Presumably he implied that the governors were to have sex with their spouses.
The advice is plentiful, yet so many of us are unhealthy. Not just the obesity epidemic sweeping the nation, but our lifestyles have changed, and we have changed.
Most people are unhealthy, unhappy, and unsure where to turn for answers.
Having a healthy body is important, as our body is the vessel that carries us through life. The body is the box that houses who we really are. So of course, we must maintain the skin bag that we wear. It is important to give sustenance, nourishment and protection to the external transportation. Much like you maintain a luxury automobile, so too should you maintain your body.
But there is so much more to a healthy life than what to eat or not eat, or what to wear or not wear. Happiness affects your health on a daily basis, and we can all manage our own happiness.
Once you realize that you are in charge of your own happiness, something happens. A shift takes place as you realize that you have control over yourself. You can be happy if you choose. You can also choose to be unhappy. The good news is, for your health, choosing happiness is an option.
When we are happy, stress is released, our bodies and our brains relax, and we are able to function from a place of health. Every day is a choice. What will you choose today? To be happy and healthy, or to drag your skin bag along behind you as you travel your unhappy path through life?
The choice is yours, my friends. And in a moment, you can choose again.
Namaste Friends, thank you for listening.
