Reality check when it comes to health + wellness

Not only is optimal health not everyone’s goal, but it’s also not a possibility for many people.

The reality is – there is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to health, and most recommendations aren’t accessible for most people.

Not only can most people not afford to eat organic, but many people also don’t have money to put food on the table or have access to fresh food (food deserts are a reality for many people). Some people can’t walk outside to get fresh air. Some people can’t lose weight due to medications, hormonal imbalances, or insomnia. Some people can’t afford to go to therapy, the water bill for a bath, or basic access to healthcare.

This is why I think it is so important to keep your opinions to yourself when it comes to other people’s habits and lifestyle.

No one wants to feel bad about themselves. No one wants to feel like a failure for doing what works for them. It’s also rare that you ever know someone’s full story.

I can give you all of the tips I know for health optimization, but I think we also need to acknowledge that how we respond and adapt to our circumstances is individual, and there are perpetual factors that impact a person’s well-being (because there’s healing in that).

There’s still a lot that I don’t think we will be able to solve anytime soon, and that’s okay. I don’t think everyone’s journey needs to be rooted in health. We are all here for a purpose (even if you don’t know what that is yet).
