Many times our health matters most when we become sick.
It is during those times that we realize how vulnerable we are, how important it is to stop smoking, how important it is to work out and how important it is to eat healthy. Many times we even make the mistake to rely on only doctors to feel good or to help correct what we created with our unhealthy way of living. Waiting until we are sick and expecting a doctor to be responsible for our health are two big mistakes that we can not make. That’s because just as I wrote on an article for the Manhattan Times newspaper two years ago, “Health Starts With You First”.
So why should your health matter? Your health should matter because the truth is, without your health you have NOTHING. You have no energy, you have no life, you have nothing to give to others and your true essence which is your soul has no home! This is why it should matter and I will expand on these reasons a bit more.
you have no energy. You need energy to get your body moving. If you can’t get your body moving, you can’t accomplish anything. You can’t get things done around the house. You can’t go to work. And guess what?! If you can’t go to work, how are you going to get the money to pay your rent or mortgage to pay for your house?! How are you going to be able to maintain having a car?! What is important to realize is that your primary home and vehicle is your body, not the actual car or house. It is YOUR BODY that allows you to move from point A to point B. Before a car, you need your body because it is your body that allows you to go to work to make that money to buy that car. Before you have a house, your primary house is YOUR BODY. It is your body that houses your true essence and when that true house which is your body is in good shape, you will be able to maintain your physical house made of bricks in good shape. But these two things first start with YOUR BODY.
you have no life. You have no life because it is your physical body that allows you to be on this earth. Once your body decides to shut down, that’s it when it comes to what houses your soul. It is your body that gives you life which allows you to be the full expression of your soul. Without a body, there is no way for you to be a full expression of yourself. Without a body, there is no you! If this isn’t a strong enough reason for you to take care of your body I don’t know what is!
you have nothing to give to others. Think about this, when you are full of energy, you are vibrant and when you are vibrant, you can be your best self. When you are your best self, you have so much to offer to others because you are in the position to offer the best of what you have. There is nothing greater that you can offer to others than the best of yourself. The best of you means love, greatness, encouragement, happiness and believe it or not, health is very much correlated to all this. This is because sickness depresses the body, it makes you into someone that you are not but are because your body doesn’t feel the same. When you don’t feel the same, you can’t possibly feel happy and joyous and if you are not happy and joyous, you can’t possibly offer this to others. Health leads to happiness, balance and stability so it is a must to always strive for health.
You have so much to offer to others. You have unlimited things to offer to everyone in this world. However, in order for you to be able to give all that you have to offer, your soul which is your true essence needs a home. That home is YOUR BODY! Your true essence deserves a body that is in optimum health! Your soul deserves a body that allows it to be its full self! Your soul deserves a vehicle that is in good condition so that it can travel as far as it wants to! In order for this to happen, you need to start treating your body like the most precious thing that you will ever have and own! No one can do this for you.
If you haven’t yet, start NOW taking care of your health! Start NOW eating right! Start NOW educating yourself about health! Start NOW listening to your body! Your body is an investment that you must make on a daily basis and you will gain high interest in the form of health. There is truly no price to your health.
