Here’s a fun story about a short note that just sold at auction for a lot of money. The author? Albert Einstein. And while the physicist’s theories about physics and relativity have made a lasting impact on our world, his theory on happiness is also worth noting, too.
“The first wealth is health.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson
It may sound trite, but we couldn’t be more serious. Your primary self-investment in life must be in your own wellness. Without good health, we simply lack the foundation of energy, strength, and stamina that it takes to achieve all that we desire.
Want to have a robust sex life?
Want quality time with your children?
How about traveling?
The examples go on and on. No matter what you want to experience or possess in your life, you cannot live life at your very best unless you are healthy.
As you spend more time with us, you’ll hear us talk frequently about “physical/structural” wellness. We use that term to cover the concept of biological health. We tend to focus most of our attention on the following aspects of physical/structural health:
- Quantity and quality of sleep.
- Level of hydration.
- Nutritional intake.
Are you aware of the health risks of being chronically sleep deprived?
Most Americans are chronically dehydrated. Are you one of them? Do you know how even mild dehydration affects your health?
You’re probably aware that heart disease is a real problem in America, but did you know that one out of four deaths in the US is caused by heart disease?
These are real issues, and the volumes of research that are available could keep you stocked up on reading material for the rest of your life, yet we still have a tendency to take these issues for granted. Up until now…
The First Wealth is Health
It’s that simple. If you want to change your life, if you want to live at a level that you’ve never experienced before, then it starts with good health. What are you willing to do about it? What’s your limiting belief about your own health?
