Dear reader One of my mentors in business said if health isn’t one of your top priorities it’s time to make it one. Because what can you do without your health?
The first step is to give yourself credit for what you already do that’s good for your health. And here are five steps to accelerate your health, and wellbeing from my 5 Fold Path to Bliss. 1. Eliminate what’s irritating you. That might be as simple as cleaning out your refrigerator. Or it could be a nagging business project. Other mentors have said to break it into little pieces and do what’s most difficult first. But maybe it’s a relationship that you can’t eliminate. If that’s the case, I have found the Serenity Prayer a helpful guide. “Give me the strength to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference." 2. Nourish yourself. That’s not only by eating simple, healthy foods, but also in other ways. Listen to music you like. Seek friendship. Notice what feels good in your body, mind and heart and absorb it into all your cells. Practicing virtue energy, like kindness and gentleness is also nourishing. 3. Get comfortable in your body. That might mean a big overhaul in your fitness program or simply accepting where you’re at now. One good technique is to notice a part of you that feels good or even just OK. Keep your focus trained on that part until the goodness spreads throughout all of you. 4. Use your natural resources. For instance, you’ve heard the expression, “when you smile the whole world smiles with you.” It’s also true that when you smile your muscles relax, your digestion improves, and happy hormones are released that make your immune system stronger to fight off bad bugs. 5. Love yourself, as well as others. This is especially important if you have a strong inner critic. Give yourself credit every day for all that you accomplish, even if it’s just resting.
