Did you know that your life experience is tied to your long-term health? Life experience challenges our body’s resources and is cumulative. The concept of embodiment and embodied experience is a rather new concept which I find intriguing. I’ve also discovered that looking at health from a different perspective can actually give us more options.
It is my hope that this series on embodied experience as it relates to health will prove to be useful to all who are seeking to prevent or resolve states of illness, disease, or chronic pain.
Be an Advocate for Your Health
Today, a wealth of information is available to consumers who choose to take an active role in cultivating and perpetuating a state of health and well-being.
In addition to keeping up with the latest health news and taking note of tips for a healthy lifestyle such as making better food choices, regulating our stress, exercising, and hanging out with like-minded people, we also want to be active and healthy into our senior years to avoid debilitating chronic illness.
That’s my personal goal too. To achieve that goal, it is vital to remember that no matter what your age, YOU are your best health advocate and the more informed you are about your body, the easier it will be to improve and sustain your health.
In what ways have you advocated for your own health and wellness?
