love yourself enough to set boundaries
drinking, smoking, and not exercising will kill you
Most of us have our fare share of problems, and some of us have long-term health issues that we struggle with on a daily basis. Some call this having a dis-ease, meaning that we are not at rest, constantly worrying and fretting, in physical, mental, and / or spiritual pain. Addiction, anxiety and depression, personality disorders, and in my case a touch of OCD, means that we are seldom at ease.
Whatever your problem is, whatever your health issues are, no matter what your ambitions, goals, dreams and desires are, I firmly believe there is a lot we can do to help ourselves, to heal ourselves from what plagues us, to make ourselves a better life.
For me, that means first of all knowing myself, admitting to myself just who and what I am, and accepting that I have some physical, mental, and spiritual health issues. For example; I’m over my ideal weight, I’m no where near as fit as I’d like to be, and I suffer from Obsessive Compulsive Disorders.
Some would go to doctors, and take medication, or seek therapy and counselling, or just ignore the whole health thing altogether.
However, I am self-motivated to heal myself and make a better life for myself and those I care for. I have a good daily routine, even if I don’t always stick to it. I keep myself and the garret clean, tidy, and smart. Getting enough rest and sleep is important, as is getting enough fresh air and exercise. I eat pretty well and healthily, and I don’t binge eat or eat late at night. Watching TV is not a big thing for me, instead I read and listen to music. The key is not getting side-tracked, staying focused, and not getting discouraged when things aren’t perfect. Most importantly for me ~ not drinking.
Some say that we need to live with a healthy mind in a healthy body. And that having a positive outlook goes a long way. All I know is that physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness.
torment is not a happy state
it will kill you
