Health Inventory

Healthy Mind:

Take a health inventory

Your number on the scale is merely one component of your health and fitness. Your clothing size is also simply one component, that many would argue isn’t relevant to gauging health at all. Instead of focusing on being thin, focus on your total physical, mental and emotional health. Here’s your new checklist:

How do you feel during your day? Do you have energy?

How do you function during your day? Can you lift and carry everything you need to? Can you bend and reach easily?

How is your emotional state most of the time? We’re not talking about the every so often sadness, frustration or anger. Is there an emotional trend you notice?

Do you experience any systemic or bodily malfunctions? For example, regular digestive distress, regular aches or pains?

If any of your answers make you uneasy or aren’t what you want, need or expect, time to visit your physician.
