Truly, health is wealth

So this whole of last month has been rather busy with our annual travels to meet parents, in laws, festivals and the added measure was minor ailments..yes, all this came in the way of clean mind space to pursue written thoughts! Now hopefully all that is behind and the joys of punching those keys should resume!

When physical health goes for a toss, life suddenly swerves ! Even hearing about close acquaintances going through health troubles slows down our own mental make up. No matter how positive one tries to stay, those glitches does hamper our existence.There’s truly nothing else that should matter more to anyone other than good physical health. It keeps us on, keeps us positive and mostly keeps us happy. Our personal health is all very much in our hands and each ones formula is very distinct to that individual. There’s no one rule for all, no matter how many rants about dietary and exercise this or that’s are written about. Here, one has to figure out exactly what works for those endorphins release but release they must! Be it in a long relaxed walk or a jog/ run with music and adrenaline pumping, or a new form of dance taken as a hobby or a completely new or a long lost sport restarted, anything that keeps our physical form going is a great thing. Sudden unexpected and so completely out of time and age small discomforts with our bodies can come up at any stage of our living and dealing with these requires a good frame of mind which stems from good mental and physical health.

It’s nice to sit and figure out at different stages, what changes need to be incorporated to keep ourselves going great. What worked yesterday might be required to either be modified or tossed out for a different life stage. Our own physical being is ever changing so it’s only prudent then to understand us and accept our current physical state humbly.

Rigidity with a few things and flexibility with a few others should do the trick. Too fussed or overthinking or too many restrictions on self can prove to be self detrimental. As in everything else, balance and good understanding of ones own anatomy works wonders. All and all, taking the health glitches in our stride but consciously focussing on positivity is the way forward as we grow or age.
