Is it possible to give your health to others?
The world continues to get sicker. This does not mean every individual is getting sick. Millions are thriving. Millions have it figured out. They know how to achieve superb health to the point where they can engage in any activity they want. They wake up full of energy, have a passion for life, digest food as well as possible and never get sick. They are well on their way to feeling like a kid when they become 80 years old. Even 90. They show no signs of slowing down and simply love life.
Is this you? Do you want this to be you?
I'm not there yet but I am well on my way. I'm on a life long journey towards superb health. I'll never reach perfection because it does not exist. But, I'll strive for it while doing my absolute best to limit my stress.
In order to give your amazing, vibrant health to others you must first find it yourself. You must feel the magic and live it day by day. You must move on when you feel like you have fallen through at any given moment. You must never stop educating yourself. You must study yourself. To find out if X food is wrong or right for you, experiment. I say wheat is not meant for any human being. To find out if this is true for you, eliminate it for 30-60 days. Keep track of how you feel. Then re introduce and keep track of how you feel.
Realize that health is a life long journey. Seek to improve but be okay with where you are at any given moment.
When you show improvements in your health your family and friends will naturally begin to ask you questions. If you lose a bunch of weight then they will want to know how you did it if they need to lose weight themselves. Maybe you had acne but now have perfectly clear skin. Those who still have acne will want to have skin just like you.
So give it to them. Tell them how you did it when they ask. Remember that health is a life long journey. Just because it worked for you does not mean it will work for them. This is great! Encourage them to never stop. Tell them that they may need to fail a few times. Failing is good. When you fail, you can learn a lot. If you fail it shows that you at least gave an effort. If you never fail then you are not trying hard enough.
Don't push your lifestyle on others. That's not giving. That's theft. It's stealing their freedom.
I live primally. I do my best to avoid grains, sugars, industrial oils, legumes and conventional dairy. After doing this for 20 months, my family is finally starting to jump on board. I don't push it on them. They see my overall health improving and want to see the same in themselves. They ask me questions. They want to learn more.
I choose to live a healthy lifestyle. This has enabled me to give health to others. This may be the greatest gift in the world. The greatest Christmas present anyone could open.
Or maybe a hug, smile and the words "I love you" will do.
What are you giving to your family and friends this holiday season? Love? Health? Appreciation? Gifts?
