Am I Healthy?

Ever since my MS diagnosis, I have been told numerous times that I am unhealthy. By traditional definitions of “healthy” – they’re absolutely right. This chronic disease can leave me so fatigued that some days it’s a struggle to get out of bed, and the numbness that affects my body can lead me to rely on a cane.

However, a few years ago I decided the definition of healthy is flawed, and doesn’t focus enough on a complete state of well-being. Physical, mental, and social well-being all contribute to one’s overall state of health, not merely the absence of disease. I have redefined healthy for me, which means being able to participate fully in the things I enjoy. My healthy is being able to box for an hour, or going to the movies with my friends. It’s running a 50 minute 10k, or taking my dog, Nutella, to the park. My healthy means cooking myself natural, organic food to nourish my body to give me the energy so I do not miss out on the things I love most.

I started my business to connect with others and help them determine what their personal definition of healthy is. Healthy means being at a weight that makes you feel confident at, not just a number on a scale. Healthy means being able to do all the activities you want to do, whenever you want to do them. Now, there is no way to be healthy 100% of the time, but the closer we can come to our definitions of healthy, the happier our lives will be.
