In today’s age, the word healthy is plastered everywhere, mainly as a marketing ploy. Everyone is selling “health.” But what does it really mean to be “healthy”? To us, healthy should mean more than just not being in pain or experiencing symptoms. We think that being healthy should describe how good you are at healing from the stress in your life. In this article, we dive into why being healthy should be less about how we feel and more about how we heal. We will also touch on why using feeling as an indicator isn’t always accurate, and how we use this definition of health in our approach to helping our clients.
