Health And Wellness:
Important for Happiness
Happiness, health and wellness are very closely linked
It’s certainly not so easy to feel truly happy while you’re feeling sick. However, feeling sick and being unhealthy are not exactly the same thing.
A healthy person may have a cold and feel pretty lousy. But often a cold is simply the body getting rid of impurities so that it can get back to its usual healthy state. So it's a short-lived lousy experience, with perhaps some short-lived temporarily reduced happiness.
When you feel well, and you know you're also healthy, then you're well placed to experience exhilaration, joy and happiness.
On the other hand, even though you may feel 'well', if you also know that you have a serious underlying health problem, or a life-threatening illness, then you'll quite likely also eperience some underlying, nagging unhappiness.
Whichever way we choose to look at it, in the end it is clear that health and wellness are important foundations in the experience of what some call authentic happiness.
Health is more than simply the absence of sickness or disease
It's time society moved beyond seeing health as just the absence of temporay illness or long-term disease. We should see health in as the more positive experiences of vitality, creativity and joy.
This is the state we need to aspire to - a state of true wellbeing, or Peak Health as it is sometimes called.
Hopefully one day the Departments of 'Health' and 'Health Care' companies will stop focusing on illness, hospitals, clinics and medicines, and start focusing on national programs to generate 'Peak Health' and true happiness.
Some health and wellness resources
'Peak Health' increases your capacity to live a joyful life
Raising your health towards Peak Health lightens your mood, increases energy levels, and generally takes you to a new level of vitality. And this naturally leads to a spontaneous unlocking of inner happiness.
I've found this excellent
Peak Health Now!
website by Ellen Landauer, which is designed to provide in-depth information about how to achieve such an enhanced state of aliveness.
The site includes several effective body cleanse methods and well as recommendations about diet and other excellent anti-aging methods to achieve Peak Health.
As the website says: Peak Health gives you the rocket-fuel you need to live life to the fullest.
Wellness Plus... -- Health, wellness and prevention info
Here's another useful resource for good information on how to improve and maintain one's health, and to attend to prevention rather than focus mainly on illness 'fixit' remedies.
The website is called Wellness Plus... and is owned by Marie-Berthe Leblanc, Licensed Massage Therapist, in Quebec City, Canada.
Marie-Berthe's site has a lot of valuable information on physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. She also has an easy-to follow sitemap that lists what wellness topics you'll find in each section of her website.
The Self-Health Plan - a unique D-I-Y health and wellness plan
In addition to Ellen's and Marie-Berthe's recommendations, I invite you to develop your own personalised long-term health and wellness plan to cultivate new lifestyle habits for healthy living and a deeper experience of happiness. I call it the Self-Health Plan. There's an introduction to this unique plan on the next page.
