Healthy living is multi-dimensional and sometimes I can get stuck in few aspects of health, but health is another word for balance which is another word for moderation. It’s about balancing several aspects of healthy living and figuring out how many healthy habits can I adopt. It’s about having a full and satisfying life.
Fundamental Elements of Health
Are you thriving or surviving?
Sunshine and natural light
Clean fresh air
Eat foods for which we are biologically designed
Security of life and its means

Amusement and entertainment
Sense of humor, mirth, and merriment
After evaluating where I am, I found a deepened sense to move back to Hawaii to enjoy the fresh air, comfortable temperature, clean water, beauty, nature, and sense of peace. I want to create my home as a wellness sanctuary with a lush edible landscape in paradise!
Continuing on, I could probably use an internal cleanse and more vigorous activity (even though I am healing from an ankle injury).
Also, I’d like to utilize more self control. I still feel that I lose focus and tend to revert on progress I make at times. Albeit, the bikini body challenge is one of them.
In the sense of good health, I’d like a romantic companion, more human touch, sex, laughter, play, and a stronger sense of merriment. I feel like I am out of balance with these. Sometimes I forget to have fun, laugh and be carefree.
I need to put up my vision board. That always kept me on track. I don’t know why I took it down. Perhaps it was a bit dated. Well, it’s time to post a new vision board! I want a healthy life and feel inspired after looking at these photos.
I am going to keep adding to my list of healthy habits. It’s about outweighing the bad with good and eventually no longer having habits that do not serve me or my health. Here’s to health and living an inspired life.
