Health & Happiness

“No one will ever be more invested in your own mental or physical health than you. The more you take an interest in your own health and what supports it and the more responsibility you take for your own health and well being the less expensive and the more effective your own true health care will be” ~ Nora Gedgaudas
 
I just loved this quote and wanted to share it with the “masses”; and to ask you, my readers, a question…
 
What do you do to take responsibility for your health, and does it make you happy?
 
For me, it’s a lot of little things, but the two main things at the moment are getting regular chiropractic adjustments (meaning at least once every couple of months) and seeing one of my teachers for Chinese Herbs.  Both these things are a big commitment of time, energy and money, and believe me, I don’t have a whole lot of extra time in my schedule; but I’ve made a commitment to myself and my practitioners and ultimately it makes me happy.  It also gives me the sense that I am actively taking part in my own healing process which is super empowering.  It’s easy to make excuses as to why we can’t spend the money on our own healthcare, but when it comes down to it, if our minds and bodies aren’t healthy, then what else is there? 
 
~be well~
