If You ain’t got Your Health, You ain’t got Your Wealth! This is a phrase we have heard for decades in various shapes and forms. Health is your wealth and your greatest gift. And the more colloquial version is: eat your greens and brush your teeth. Yet, so many of us ignore it until the symptoms of Dis-ease take over. We believe we are smart and educated and yet more of us are on diets and medication than ever before. And, when we are nor functioning – we can’t gain wealth.
-Don’t dig your grave with your own knife and fork –
The big question for all of us is how to achieve and keep the balance between our health and wealth. When I use the word wealth, I am not just referring to money but the riches of life. The real gold in our lives, love and friendships, shelter and food and of course happiness. Ah, but life happens, children come, you get fired and re-hired in a job you don’t like. The mortgage and the bank loans increase and time slips away – and then you get ill. But you have a choice. You can chose and decide which path to take. You are the head, the CEO of your body.

Bonus Alert– drink more water! You can add mint leaves, star anise or slices of ginger. Then, there is a squeeze of lemon, orange or a splash of your fav. left over herb tea. Jazz up the water if you don’t like it plain. And between you and me, water, rest and laughter are the best medicines in the world – because, If You ain’t got Your Health, You ain’t got Your Wealth!

Once again wonderful advice, Georgia!
Come at an especially appropriate time for me. I’ve somehow injured my lower back and have been laid up for over a week, doing very simple, easy exercises, swallowing pain killers (which I hate doing), and waiting for my TENS machine that I ordered online.
I’m having great difficulty doing the things I love – feeding my chickens, cleaning their coop, collecting eggs, gardening, (there are so many cool weather crops I could be sowing right now) turning compost etc., etc. These are all no-no’s for me at this time.
For some reason my body is telling me to slow down and rest. I need to learn not to resist these messages, but I just love my little homestead, and I feel I’m neglecting it.
Could this be a lesson in acceptance, do you think?
P.S. I love the Joseph Mercola site. His health advice has saved my butt many a time! 🙂
Yes, Listening to your body is key and sometimes we try the mind over matter thingy and it doesn’t always work. Have to see the rest as a good thing and look forward to the wonderful activities you will return to soon 🙂
Our relationship with our own body should not only be physical in nature! Yes we must have some psychological and emotional connection as well to maintain good health in every sense. We function well and generally it creates more happiness, and at the and of the day, more wealth. Your seven tips are an excellent guide to achieve that. Stop blaming our circumstances and heavily rely on external sources to succeed in our personal development. Thanks for your smart and practical inspiration.
