Excerpt from: my book series
Seen in a meme:
“Do more of what makes you happy.”
While I agree with the sentiment, I would counter this by saying:
“Do more of what makes you healthy.”
Not everything that makes a person “happy” makes a person healthy. Too much of a good thing can have negative consequences.
Never underestimate the brain body connection. Often, when one falls out of balance, the other follows. How one treats their body is how one treats their brain.
Because at least some degree of happiness stems from feeling good about one’s self, it stands to reason that the better one feels about themselves, their decisions, their life, and their health, the greater their sense of well-being.
Happiness is more likely to manifest itself in one’s life as a result of seeking a healthy mind, healthy body, and healthy spirit than it is by seeking the instant gratification of doing only more of what makes them happy.
Do more of what makes you
happy healthy (and happiness will follow).
- Healthy habits harbor happiness
- Change your priorities and you change your life.
- Never underestimate the value of good health.
- If the results of your habits don’t make you better…
- No one can make you get fit.
- Don’t sacrifice the kind of life and health you deserve
- If you have the power to change something that is holding you back, and you don’t…
- Making progress is more important than making excuses
- It’s not too late to make a conscious decision to improve…

- Stop wishing for more time
- Self-discipline is a key to many doors
- Who is in charge?
- You’ll never do great things unless you make the effort and try.
- You have exactly one life to live to do everything you ever wanted.
- Self-imposed limitations: A tough pill to swallow
