The Most Important Thing

Have you given much thought lately to the most important thing you have? Your first response might be, “my children, my spouse or my family.” But, consider what it means if you put “my health” at the top of the list.

Your health is directly influenced by how you live your life. (And, this influences your family’s lives, and how you work . . . and the list goes on.) The decisions and choices you make every day have a direct impact on your health, vitality and well-being. And, this carries over into every other aspect of your life and your family’s lives. You can make positive choices that result in more energy, long-term wellness and a more positive outlook on life. You can make unhealthy choices that do just the opposite. It’s up to you.

The positive, healthier choices you make deliver immediate and long-term benefits to you and your family, by reducing your health care costs, feeling better about yourself, and knowing you’re doing the “right” thing. Consider too, that health is not just something you are, or have, or work for, or maintain. It's also an attitude, a state of mind, and a life-long goal.

So, back to the original question—what’s the most important thing you have? Then think about this statement: Health is the foundation for everything we build in life.

What are your thoughts?
