What Does it Mean to Live a Healthy Life?

.
This is one of the central questions that our community is working to answer.

For my part, I started asking this question when I decided that exercising and eating healthy, while important, is a painfully limited view of what it means to live a healthy life.

I would imagine that we’ll be answering this question for the rest of our lives, but here’s the answer I have today…

1. Creativity

-A healthy life involves creativity. I mean this in the literal sense. Creative pursuits (art, dance, music, etc.) have been proven to reduce stress and provide numerous health benefits. Furthermore, I believe these activities are good for you because it’s healthy to contribute something to the world around you.

2.Physicality

-Nobody dreams about typing at a keyboard. Almost everything we fantasize about involves a physical action: making the game winning shot, traveling the world, creating beautiful art. To accomplish the things we dream about, we are required to be makers, explorers, and creators. We are required to move and become active participants in life. In other words, to live fulfilling lives, we need to live physical lives.

3. Connection

-Human beings are the most social creatures on planet earth. Fundamentally, we are here for connection. So, I have trouble believing that you are living a healthy life if it doesn't involve others.

4. Exploration

-To be curious is to be human. Imagine the first year — or even five years — of your life. Almost everything you are exposed to is new. Each day brings something to discover, something to learn, something to explore.

5. Participation

-Living a healthy life is rooted in participating in the world around you. The people who are living healthy, fulfilling lives are actively living instead of simply being alive.

senior1819 I'm not sure about connection and participation point. Do you work on your body because of the others or for yourself? If you're in a group who is constantly procrastinating and stopping you to progress, is that a good foundation to stay in that group? Just thinking aloud ...
