I was a bit split between two angles in approaching this post, one of which was referring to the rewards of leading a healthy lifestyle as benefits instead of rewards, quite simply because if I refer to them as rewards then I guess for some people it might suggest that it’s not something essential. Nevertheless, the fact that I’m exploring them as REAL rewards or benefits should in itself suggest that what you’d have to gain out of your resolution to lead a healthier lifestyle is something you’d be better off with in your life as opposed to living in absence of it.
So what are the real rewards of leading a healthy lifestyle?
Taking things for granted
Normally the trait of taking things for granted is a negative one, but if you’re in a position where you’re able to enjoy taking things for granted then the likelihood is that you’re generally in an enviable situation. That’s what being healthy does – it puts you in a position to be able to take things for granted, like being able to walk up the hill without starting to feel like your heart is going to explode in your chest or just not having to make regular visits to the doctor.
You tend to appreciate this position when you’re on the other side of the fence, trust me!
Enjoying the luxury of time
A healthier body simply makes better use of the time afforded to it, for example if you’re limited in your ability to function at work then you won’t get all that much done, will you?
The ability to function at optimal efficiency
A healthy body and a healthy mind come together to help you make more efficient use of the time discussed above and to just make more efficient use of anything you have at your disposal. There are many examples we can use in action, one of which is your experience of music – if you’re healthy then not only are your clear mind and sharp ears enjoying the music, but you can get up and dance to it too, to complete the experience!
More efficient recovery from injury and illness
As a result of the unpredictability of life as we know it today, finding yourself at the offices of a Mankato personal injury attorney may be inevitable as part of the process of perhaps trying to get some due restitution following an unfortunate personal injury event. While the legal counsel of a competent attorney will probably get you the restitution due to you, an undeniable fact of the matter is that you still have to deal with the primary issue of having suffered the injury or illness, and as much as some events such as the cause of the injury or illness may not be preventable. What is in your control though is how your body will react as part of the recovery process.
It’s as simple as this – a healthier body recovers a lot quicker from injuries and illnesses, something which you’d probably value even more as you get older.
