Dear friend, one of my philosophies in life is to give myself the best opportunity to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Am I still going to die? Yes! However, it makes a lot of sense to me that while I can, I must give myself the best opportunity to optimize my health which could lead me to saving money in the long run.
Over the years many people asked me how I managed to remain looking so youthful and maintain a slender body. I therefore decided to share my secrets with you since I do believe you can also benefit from what I have learnt and implemented as a health program. You can use this program in your own life to help you to maintain a healthy body, mind and spirit. It includes such topics as deep breathing and its benefits, the importance of a good night’s sleep, diet, exercise, such as, walking, hiking, dancing and the benefits to be derived from these.
So in this context health and well being include, diet, exercise, rest, relaxation and more importantly the positive use of your mind. So a change of diet will not help someone who will not change his/her thoughts.
The body is the servant of the mind. It obeys the operations of the mind, whether they be deliberately chosen or automatically expressed. At the bidding of the unlawful thoughts the body sinks rapidly into disease and decay: at the command of happy and beautiful thoughts it becomes clothed with beauty.
Your physical well-being, like everything else, is profoundly affected by the beliefs that you hold. Usually, when you are younger, your expectation of wellness is stronger, but as you get older, most people degenerate on a sort of sliding scale that reflects what they are seeing in others around them. Older people often do experience more illness and less vitality. But the reason for the decline of people as they get older is not because their physical bodies are programmed to break down over time, but because the longer they live, the more they find to fuss and worry about, causing resistance to the natural stream of well-being.
Disease and health like other circumstances are rooted in thoughts. Sickly thoughts will express themselves through a sickly body.
Strong, pure and happy thoughts build up the body in vigor and grace. The body responds readily to the thoughts, by which it is impressed, and the habits of thought will produce their own. Happiness is always a by-product - it is not something that you go after directly.
There is an old saying; we are born to be happy. For some people, the primary goal in life seems to be the attainment of happiness. There must be an innate knowing that our purpose in life is to be happy, because we seek happiness with all our hearts. The sad fact is that we are often seeking it outside ourselves. Any person who spends his/her life running a race that he/she is bound to lose is really out of it. This can also be true of those who pursue happiness. It never seems to come that way. Happiness is not found by seeking it; it is a by-product of helping others, it’s something that you give, it’s a contribution that you make to others.
Most of us know in our hearts that there is great value in happiness. But we may delude ourselves into believing that happiness can be bought. A lot of money may be spent in being entertained because often, while being entertained, we experience joy. But the truth of the matter is that what we gain from others may be temporary; what we do for ourselves can be eternal. The mere fact that we falsely believe that others can bring happiness to us could be part of the reason why we may not have found the real joy in ourselves. We cannot get happiness from a pill, or any kind of drug used internally or externally. We can only attain happiness by giving it away.
No matter your age or your physical condition, (if you are reading these words you are exercising your eyes) you can improve your health and well-being and live a more abundant life.
