Are You Healthy By Choice Or By Chance?

Healthy By Choice?

Our Wellness Minute this week is about choices. Making the right ones can make all the difference.

Are You Healthy By Choice or By Chance?

There are lots of people out there today who are healthy who do nothing special to get that way.  In fact, there are lots of people who seem to go out of their way to do things that are considered or known to be unhealthy, who are seemingly healthy.  They have no symptoms or signs of disease or infirmities even though they don’t try to eat right, they don’t exercise, they smoke or drink or have other unhealthy habits.  Most people refer to them as “Lucky”.  They are healthy by chance.

Some people who take chances with their health don’t do as well.  They fail to do the things that are necessary to be healthy and end up with diseases and a shortened life expectancy.  These are the people who smoke and end up with cancer, who overeat and refuse to exercise who get heart disease.  They are the unfortunate people who get sick whenever a new bug passes through town.

There is a third group of people who pursue health in a different way.  They have chosen to do everything they can to insure that they are healthy.  This group of people eats the right foods to give their bodies the nutrients they need, in the right quantities and combinations for health.  They maintain a healthy weight through diet and exercise and maintain their heart health.  They learn about meditation, yoga, massage, and chiropractic care and choose to do the right things whenever possible.  They have decided to seek health by choice, not by chance.

Which type of person you are is entirely up to you.  You get to decide if you will choose health or leave it to chance.  Your decision could make all the difference in your life.
