Steps that can help us maximize our health include:
- Learning to manage stress
- Engaging in activities that provide purpose and connection to others
- Maintaining a positive outlook and appreciating what you have
- Defining a value system, and putting it into action
Peak health will be different for each person, and how you achieve wellness may be different from how someone else does. It may not be possible to avoid disease completely, but doing as much as we can to develop resilience and prepare the body and mind to deal with problems as they arise is a step we can all take.
