Health should be (if it is not already) our top priority. It is a responsibility we have to ourselves, our families, and to society at large.
When we are in a state of health, there is no limit to what we can do. We are productive at work, have meaningful relationships, take care of our family, enjoy our hobbies and vacations and engage in any endeavor we choose. In short, with health the sky is the limit.
On the other hand, once we have lost our health, all activities stop. We are incapable of playing an active role in life. We are at the mercy of others and become dependent on them. Most importantly, it begins to affect our family.
It is interesting that at the very moment we lose our health, it suddenly becomes our number one priority. And there is no limit to what we will to do to retrieve it. It no longer matters how far we have to travel, what we must do, how long it takes, or how much it costs. If we have a glimmer of hope to regain our health, most of us will comply.
If it is that important to us when we have lost it, and the task of getting well surpasses any other priorities, then doesn’t it makes perfect sense to place the preservation and expansion of our health at the top of our priority list?
Health should always be our first priority. It is a lot easier and cost effective to maintain wellness than to fight sickness.
Its time to rethink the way we take care of ourselves. Its time to start engaging in an approach that places our health at the top.
