Many people might think that am crazy but am not or I might be as well. Today I want to have a face up talk with Health because I don’t understand her ways. I want to understand who and what exactly she wants. It would be nice if you join me and let us face health together.
JAGOAL: Hello health, welcome. we would like to know, who exactly are you?
HEALTH: I am here for you, I love you and I want the best for you. I am that part of you that shines bright when you have peace environmentally, mentally, emotionally, physically, free from sickness and injury.
JAGOAL: when I hear the word health the first thing that comes to my mind is sickness and medicine is that all there is to you?
HEALTH: There is more to me than meets the eye, I am everybody’s essential package of survival.
JAGOAL: Expound on that.
HEALTH: Okay, in me there are several components. I carry within me mental health, physical health, environmental health, emotional health, intellectual health, social health and spiritual health. Each of these has its treatments.
HEALTH: Let me break it down for you.
This refers to the relationship between you and other people could be your neighbor, friends, relatives and even strangers. Good relation between you and other individuals can also aid in your mental health and emotional healing by acting as a catalyst to your peace of mind which results to good sleep. You can build a good social relationship by first of all respecting and loving yourself because it all starts with you, good communication skills, developing healthy relationships and finally having a safe support system. Those have who poor social health can be seen to be dull, angry all the time and tend to avoid people which should be corrected with immediate effect.
This comes as a result of something negative that happened to us that is affecting the way we think, feel, and act. It could something physical or internal. A mind that is affected adversely does not have the ability to handle stress, cannot think straight, socialize or even take part in decision making. Your mental health will determine whether you are sane or insane, hence in whichever case our mental health should come first because it carries a big percentage of our lives.
Many people might think this is all about keeping your environment clean but sorry to disappoint you. Apart from keeping your environment clean you also need to check the people around you, the kind of noise you listen to. This noise should be positive or otherwise it will break you. Don’t put too much concentration on the negative things people around you say. This is to mean apart from keeping your environment clean ensure that people around you bring positive vibrations only. Keep your environment in check and keep your sanity.
I know church is ringing in your mind right now, you could be partly correct but spiritual health means that you are at peace with life and every happenings around you. It is that inner peace that we are talking about here. We not only depend on the bible and church for spiritual health but it also has to come from us, the deepest part of our hearts and our actions so that we live a purposeful life and actualize our dreams. Spiritual health creates balance between the psychological, physical and social aspects of our lives.
This is where we bring in books and education. This kind of health involves being open minded. Being open to new experiences and ideas. This is where we put our intelligence to work, we challenge ourselves, improve our skills and understanding. All to the positive.
EMOTIONAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH
Emotional health is how we feel. Happy, sad, angry, depressed, excited. How we feel about ourselves, discouraged or motivated. This part of health is very delicate it could build or destroy an individual. When we talk about physical health we refer to injuries, rashes or disorders on the skin.
So you see, I am not all about medical health, I am a life package that cannot be omitted from your lives.
JAGOAL: Wow that was quite a lesson, I have learnt a lot. Now I know that everything around me is health bound. Thank you so much health for coming through and everyone else who joined me for this face up talk.
