How to Figure Out What's Blocking Your Health
Updated: Feb 17
Ever felt at a loss about what to do for your health?
Ever “done what you’re supposed to do” and haven’t seen any improvement?
It’s super frustrating right?
GETTING TO THE ROOTS OF YOUR CHALLENGE
If you can relate to the sentences above, there’s about a 100% chance you’ve been using the wrong diagnostic—the wrong perspective on how to heal, lose weight, etc.
It’s not your fault.
You were never taught how to find the cause of a health problem.
What do I mean?
HERE’S HOW YOU WERE TAUGHT TO THINK ABOUT HEALTH
If you look up “health” in the dictionary, you get stupid definitions like:
Freedom from disease or ailment
Soundness of body and mind
We’re defining health by what it’s not?
I don’t have a named disease; therefore, I am healthy?
That makes as much sense as “I don’t have a bad car; therefore, I’m a good driver.”
Furthermore, who of us is going to say “I’m not sound of body and mind?”
What does that even mean?
OVERCOMING THAT HOPELESS FEELING
With useless definitions like that, no wonder so many people flounder and get frustrated when it comes to health.
Definitions like that leave us rudderless, powerless—we have nothing to strive for.
With no way to course correct, we’re left to the mercy of treatments and interventions.
The problem is, health isn’t built by treatments and interventions.
Health is built by clarity of keystone habits, and the regular practice of those habits.
It’s not your genes that determine your health destiny.
Not even close. It’s your choices.
Our genes “load the gun,” but it’s our choices and environment that “pull the trigger.”
CREATING A USEFUL DEFINITION OF HEALTH
Or, better than a definition, how about a checklist to tell us how we’re doing?
Here is, as far as I see it now, what health is:
No chronic aches or pains.
Good vision and radiant skin.
A healthy body fat percentage.
Strong muscles and joints that work well.
No trouble falling asleep or staying asleep.
Rarely catching a cold and no problems with allergies.
A good memory, clear thinking, and a strong ability to focus.
The energy for all required activities and a surplus for recreation.
Rarely wrestling with loneliness, anxiety, discouragement, or depression.
No digestive discomfort and daily, comfortable elimination (log not pile).
Freedom from unstable emotions and intense cravings for foods, drugs, alcohol, etc.
How does your health measure up to that checklist?
I don’t know about you, but I’ve got some things to work on.
GETTING HEALTHY -- STARTS WITH GETTING CLARITY
If you don’t know what’s blocking your health, you can’t correct it!
Now, useful as the above checklist is, let’s go a layer deeper.
Beyond the checklist, you had a way to find the anchors to cut loose, and the keystone habits to build?
After seeing the big picture, health didn’t seem mysterious or overwhelming anymore?
You replaced hopelessness with rock-solid confidence you can develop a strategy to age well?
What would that be worth?
You think that might change the narrative of your health journey?
You think you might spend less time at the doctor’s office, take less meds, or increase the chances of skipping that future surgery?
You bet you would!
