Having excellent physical health involves several components. What are they?
Healthy living, including a species appropriate, healthy diet is essential if you want to have a good quality of life, free of debilitating pain, illness, and a lifetime of dependency on synthetic drugs, unnecessary invasive surgeries, and limited mobility.
Strength, flexibility, endurance, and coordination are all aspects of being in good physical condition, and define the natural potential expression of our human form ~ when proper care is taken!
Five Qualities Of A Healthy Body
Good health is more than absence of dis-ease, for which few among us actually are fortunate enough to experience. It is having a positive mindset, healthy emotional states, self-confidence, and a sense of connectedness ~ connection to family, friends, and an extended 'tribe' of people for which you share a cultural heritage and similar values.
Having a spiritual practice and connection to Nature are also vitally important aspects to having excellent mind-body health ~ ultimately perhaps the most important once a good nutritional foundation has been established.
Studies show that populations with the greatest number of centenarians have several things in common, including living among ethnically homogeneous groups of people with similar ancestry, and shared values. They are very connected to their land and geographic area, and work cooperatively together, sharing in providing the necessities of life ~ including fresh, local, whole foods.
Despite being relatively 'poor' economically, they live happy, fulfilling lives, expressing greater abundance in many ways that our materialistic 'civilized' urban lifestyles lack.
When you live harmoniously to your true nature, or in your 'Right Alignment' ~ expressing your gifts and joys in meaningful ways ~ and when you live in your ideal location, among those for whom you share values ~ you will have a much greater sense of wellbeing, which will be mirrored in having excellent physical health. And that leads to a very satisfying, healthy and fruitful life!
