Destination: Health

“Healthy living” is not a destination that you can simply arrive at via effort and good intention. Nor is it a state that can be achieved and then checked off your bucket list. Living, by definition, is an ongoing process. All aspects of life ebb and flow throughout various seasons, and this is certainly true of your health.

But “health” is also a completely subjective word. What is considered health for one person might not be health for another. For one person, choosing to eat less sugar and going to the park a few times a week might be a major achievement in their process, while for another, choosing to eat non-organic food prepared in a “conventional” restaurant might be a major compromise. The point is—neither is right or better, except in as much as it is right and better for those individuals.

Health as a standard or ideal is not the point; people are. When we focus too much on health as a concept, we tend to take our eyes off of the intrinsic value of the individual, and this is why it can be so easy to slip into judgment.  We need to, instead, realize that all people are inherently valuable, and so the process of improving one’s health is good and noble, regardless of what the specific details of that process look like. Each person must decide for themselves (and perhaps their family) what choices they are going to make and what goals they are going to set in order to continually move toward a richer and fuller life. Only then can the process be freed from judgment or, in other words, be healthy.

    Thank You u00a0 many times when people as they say loose their health it seems that it may happen over time when they want to regain it seems they want it to happen overnight.When people do regain their health the forget center of the brain seems to activate forgetting where they were at before they regained their health.OK I’m well don’t need to worry about that anymore or spend money on compositions that insurance does not pay for.The consequences of that kind of thinking have never proved to be positive as far as life thriving or quality of live is concerned. Aloha Thanks again Dr Rollins you are my Hero. u00a0

    One of my favorite things to share with people is something that came through years ago into my awareness. “Health is an active pursuit, not a passive result.” Thanks! Noni Kaufman
