The Main Components of Physical Health
Having excellent physical health involves several components.
Healthy living is essential if you want to have a good quality of life, free of debilitating pain, illness, and a lifetime of dependency on synthetic drugs, unnecessary invasive surgeries, and limited mobility.
What exactly constitutes healthy living?
Being in good physical health requires getting adequate and appropriate nutrition, physical movement, and cultivating healthy lifestyle habits that best support your ability to thrive.
Good health is more than absence of dis-ease, for which few among us actually are fortunate enough to experience. It is having a positive mindset, healthy emotional states, self-confidence, and a sense of connectedness ~ connection to family, friends, and an extended 'tribe' of people for which you share a cultural heritage and similar values.
Having a spiritual practice and connection to Nature are also vitally important aspects to having excellent mind-body health ~ ultimately perhaps the most important once a good nutritional foundation has been established.
Let's break all this down.
Strong Spirit Woman (SSW) focuses on four main categories of topics influencing our physical health, and five main qualities that define a healthy body.
To keep things easy to navigate, I've divided the broader topic of physical health into four main categories, outlined below.
Stress and our predominant thought patterns also have a huge impact on our overall health ~ for good or for ill ~ and will be covered in future articles about cultivating positive thinking habits, self-confidence, and parts therapy.
- Creating Healthy Lifestyle Habits - Includes maintaining a relatively clean, decluttered, and organized home environment
- Using natural, non-toxic home & body care products
- Meditation & Mindfulness
- Positive Thinking
- Emotional Freedom & Balanced Moods
Qualities Of A Healthy Body
- Appropriate muscular development and percentage of lean body mass
- Flexibility and mobility of all joints - ability to move and use the body as Nature intended
- Postural integrity and alignment
Being physically healthy is more than just an absence from dis-ease.
Having excellent health also means being in your 'Right Alignment' ~ feeling rooted and connected, creating a livelihood that is aligned with your values, enjoying healthy relationships ~ and having plenty of energy to participate in activities that bring you joy, and fuel your dreams.
It takes dedication, perseverance, and integrity ~ being true to your word and commitments ~ to achieve good physical health. You simply must learn to value and prioritize taking care of yourself. What else is there?
Without good physical health, the quality of your entire life suffers: your health care costs will rise, and premature aging and degeneration will inevitably lead to dependency on others for care, along with a loss of dignity and mental acuity.
A large percentage of our population will suffer from dementia and Alzheimer's Disease ~ the odds rising sharply as we age. It is a very unpleasant disease for both the patient and their caretakers! This is NOT NORMAL AND CAN BE AVOIDED WITH THE RIGHT DIET!
If you want to:
- enjoy playing with your children
- participate in athletic and recreational pursuits
- have maximum physical freedom and mobility
- age gracefully
- minimize or avoid the need for expensive drugs and surgeries, and senior care
- exude self-confidence
- take care of yourself and loved ones in an emergency
- pursue your dreams
Then you will want to begin now ~ wherever you are, with whatever your current condition and resources ~ to take the steps that make sense for you to improve your physical health.
Taking care of your self early on in life pays dividends! Avoid the mistakes made by earlier generations who lacked the appropriate knowledge, and/or through neglect led many to experience premature aging, crippling, and physical decline.
Remember, you are never too old to make positive changes that can greatly improve the quality of both your health, and your life.

Having a clean, organized, and decluttered home environment will help save time, and can improve your clarity, focus, and moods! Hoarding may also be associated with 'holding on' to excess weight as well as excess 'things.'
A warm, inviting, simple and nurturing home environment that is arranged to reflect your personality and needs can not only help improve your physical health, it can inspire greater creativity and self-expression, and soothe your very soul.
Greater flow = better ability to attract all your heart and soul most desires of meaningful work, better financial flow, and loving relationships. Check out the links below to learn more!
