As we all know, Health is Wealth...well, it's a figure of speech, a telling one, because we all understand that if we don't have our health, everything else in our lives is diminished in value, even lost.
The peculiar thing is that Good Health is available to most of us.
Clinical illness apart, there is no excuse for being unhealthy. And it isn't because of pandemics, the economy, lack of education, no opportunity, exclusion, or any other of the myriad excuses we cough up in our defence that we don't have it. It's the decision to do nothing about it.
And no mistake, it IS a decision. Most of us know what to do if we want to get into reasonable shape. We even know how to do it. And that's where we score goals against ourselves; we fail to DO it.
According to the WHO, 65% of Americans are overweight or obese. According to a recent article in the Irish Times, Ireland ranks second in the overweight and obesity levels in the EU.
Something CAN be done about the condition. And a lot of people who feel tired, run down, out of sorts, can do much for themselves too.
It all starts with the decision, doesn't it? And there's the courageous acknowledgement of acceptance too, isn't there? Once we accept that we're in a particular condition, largely of our own making, then we can do something about it. If we've put ourselves in a frame, we can change the frame.
That's taking responsibility for our lives and our actions and ourselves. and once we do that, we start making progress. But until then, we're in the land of self-delusion, wishful thinking and denial.
Note that I use the word 'we', I've been heinously guilty of this myself at times. Ain't none of us perfect.
However, even in the depths of stagnation, we casn see that there may be a way out of our dilemma. And sometimes that's all we need; to know there's a way. Then we go about finding it.
Those of you who've studied the power and the simplicity of applying the Reticular Activating System will understand the logic of this.
That's why the system of using the Mind to direct the Body, which then reciprocates by reinforcing the Mind, is such an effective and simple way to do it.

But, whatever you do, DO DOMETHING
