Recently, I have not been feeling my best. My energy level seems to decrease as the day goes on. It usually hits its lowest point at around 4-5pm, and then bounces back a little in the evening, but not much. I’ve been going to bed early every night, giving myself plenty of rest, but so far it hasn’t helped.
This leads me to an inquiry: What is optimal health? And what is preventing me from experiencing it?
Optimal health means living life with robust vitality, free of chronic aches and pains, troubling symptoms and disease.
This is our natural state. Unfortunately many of us don’t live at that level. Instead, we learn to settle and live with nagging physical issues not serious enough to label as illness, yet irritating enough to leave us feeling unwell.
Some of this is our fault. I mean, keeping fit, eating well, proper rest and managing stress are all contributing factors. Optimal health takes work, and it’s not something we can take for granted, especially as we grow older.
I believe I live a pretty healthy lifestyle, though, so what’s preventing me from experiencing the natural state of robust vitality? Could it be that certain areas of my life need special attention and adjustment? I am making some inquiries into my physical, mental and emotional health, and I’m determined to find out and make necessary adjustments.
I believe optimal health is my birthright, and it is yours as well. Are you living at your optimal health? Are you willing to settle for less? If not, what are you doing about it?
