How do you define your own health?

Updated: Aug 30, 2022

I'm not qualified to answer this, because I am not you!


Yes, you can have healthy ranges of blood levels and you can be absent of disease. But that doesn’t mean you feel healthy, it doesn’t mean you have the energy to do the things you love after work, it doesn’t mean your skin is glowing or your bowel movements are regular… It certainly doesn’t mean that you’re not stressed or content. Nor does it mean that your relationships are respectful and fulfilling.


“You are the expert of your own body”

Have a think about how you would define health. Some aspects of your life you can think about could be:


  • How does my skin look?

  • Do I wake up tired or rested?

  • Do I have uncontrollable cravings?

  • Do I have enough energy to keep up with my kids?

  • How much do I move and sit still during the day?

  • How often do I laugh?

  • Is my diet varied?

  • Do I have veg or fruit with most meals?

  • Do I understand what and how much my body needs from each nutrient?

  • How much water do I drink?

  • How much alcohol do I drink?

  • Are my bowel movements regular?

  • Do I practice restrictive eating habits?

  • Am I always on trying to be on a diet?

If you are dissatisfied with any of your answers, I may be able to help. All of these factors are influenced, to a degree, by food… well, maybe not the laughter one, but I’ll do my best!


We have to know what we’re aiming for when making a change. This is especially hard when there is so much pressure to look and be like other people. We can lose sight of what healthy would actually look like on ourselves and what it would look like in our own worlds.


I guarantee that you will feel more satisfied when you reach health goals that are actually your own and not someone else’s.
