We’ve been doing quite a bit of pondering on what do we mean by living with vitality. Many of us have a knowing of what ‘well’ feels like, as when we were children we lived with a level of health and vitality that was natural for us, so we still automatically know when we don’t feel right or when we do recognise that we don’t have the vitality to do the things we want to do.
Is vitality intrinsically linked to our well-being?
The statistics show that as a population, humanity is not doing so great when it comes to well-being, as up to 80% of the top five causes of death can be related to our lifestyle – that means they happen because of how we live. Or to put it another way: how we live and the choices we make every day affect our health and well-being which in turn affects our vitality levels. Does this mean that there is 80% of the population living without a sense of vitality in their daily lives?
These statistics are pointing to a very serious problem if many elders are living with a debilitating lack of vitaliy!
So, what does living with vitality mean to us in our elder years? Is good vitality the result of us choosing to eat nutritious meals? Is it related to our lifestyle – that it is the result how we live? OR, could our vitality levels be the result of more than just eating and living healthily?
Could there be a deeper explanation of why some people live with ongoing vitality and others struggle with life and have lesser vitality to enjoy their lives?
