You can be healthy at every size and pursue health at any size; if anyone tells you otherwise, ask them how they define healthy
According to my beliefs, standards, knowledge, and expertise it’s certainly much deeper than surface level
What may bring you greater mental health, may bring someone else stress
What may bring you greater emotional health, may bring someone else irritation
What may bring you greater physical health, may bring someone else ailments or disdain or boredom!
I don’t need to expand on examples from here
The point is, health is complex
If you stay on top of ALL the areas, commit to what needs attention most, and have patience; you’ll eventually find harmony and balance
But of course, you’ll never feel healthy if the process you commit to isn’t even one you find joy or fulfillment or a feeling of growth from
How do you define being healthy? Does it change seasonally? Has it evolved over time? I’m curious!
Also, just released a new audio minisode on YouTube for the Build More than Just a Body series
It’s on the fallacy many fall into of “I’ll be happy when___”
I provide insight into how to shift out of this irrational pattern into a rational one and something we’ve learned about human fulfillment that serves as a great reminder to reinforce the new & rational pattern
I also pose a question in the episode that I know can really evoke deep thinking and consideration of the process and the result
You can watch ‘"I'll Be Happy When" A Question to Ask Yourself and an Application of Eliss's Irrational Ideas” (Ellis is a well-known American psychologist who developed REBT)
