Health – physical, mental, emotional, and etc. – is arguably the greatest contributing factor to both happiness and appearance. When I was in this week for my semi-annual teeth cleaning, the hygienist made the comment that how we take care of ourselves in our 50s determines our quality of life in our 80s. I am 50 now. Thanks to Sonicare and oil pulling, I should still have teeth!
During 2013 I took a number of healthy steps in other areas, including joining the YMCA.
Some Most of those moves I could not have foreseen a year ago.
While in Hawaii, I read The God-Shaped Brain: How Changing Your View of God Transforms Your Life. Written by a Christian psychiatrist, it offers a refreshing paradigm from which to view our relationship with God, as well as alot of brain science. For 2014, I hope to grow in brain health. To that end, I am looking for ways to incorporate helping others (aka altruism) into the fabric of my life.
What is one aspect of your own health you would like to improve in 2014?
