Change is Healthy
BY: DR. MELINA ROBERTS
The seasons change, Spring is upon us, the trees are budding, time moves forward, our children get older and so do we. The only thing that is predictable in this world is change. We are dynamic beings that are constantly changing; our cells are constantly breaking down and building up. Every seven years every cell in our body is brand new; isnT that amazing!! Change is inevitable.
The problem is that we are creatures of habit. We like to do the same thing day in and day out and then wonder why things are not changing. Ancient proverb says the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different outcome. We follow the same routines, eat the same foods, do the same things and wonder how we got to the state of health that we are in.
Often a health challenge is a call for change. A time to change old habits that were not working for us and replace them with healthy habits that will help to move us in a healthier direction.
We need to embrace change, as we embrace the change of seasons and see it as an opportunity for growth. Change is good.
