The choices you make in life will determine how healthy you are overall. And your health is important because it will determine the quality of life you lead. We are all born with one body and that body can only take you as far as you are willing to take care of it. That being said, what state of health is your body, mind and spirit in today? For many, improving ones health is an on going struggle.  That’s because we are born with free will, to make our own decisions and its hard not to be persuaded by temptation to lead you off the path to better health.




One’s health is what we make of it. We can’t change our genetic makeup, which determines our predisposition for disease, our appearance or how we grow, but we do make our own decisions. And it’s the choices that we make which determine our health. If you choose to drink, smoke or do drugs then your actions are guiding you down a path to poor health. While on the other hand if you eat healthy, exercise and get a good night sleep, your actions are leading you to good health. Your actions and the choices you make day in and day out will determine what state of health you want to live your life in.
