For me, the whole notion of HealthCare has always meant the joining of science and spirituality, with health rooted in science and care connected to spirituality – our universal ‘oneness’ - guided by the golden rule – treat others as you would have them treat you. Love, kindness, joy, gentleness, patience, and goodness to name a few outward emotions we all like to receive from others, especially our caregivers. Growing up in the 70’s, the doctors in my small town often made house calls. The doctor’s kind and gentle “bedside manner” meant everything to us.
The nature of reality is that change is happening all around us, all the time; everything in life is impermanent. Yet, the paradox is humans have an adverse reaction to change. We are constantly in resistance to the groundless flow of change.
Author Will Durant once wrote, “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” Habits define us, and as we pursue better health and wellness, our habits can make or break us. Often it’s not the big changes, but the small, daily choices, that lead to a healthier life. In the pursuit of better wellness, here are some of the most effective ways to track your wellness progress and make the most of your daily habits.
