I love health and wellness. I’ve become more aware of the importance of the “self” in health and wellness.
A couple of days ago I was talking to a great friend of mine that is a nurse. He had a lovely family and was a good friend. He was like, “Oh yes, I want to take care of my family. I want to give my family and my friends a healthy, healthy life. Let me do that.” I was also talking about the recent case of an employee whose head had been missing for a month and he had been running around the hospital with blood on his hands.
He gave me a copy of his latest book, “Reverence Health Orem,” which we have been reading on the train from Toronto to Boston. It’s basically a short book that talks about the importance of self-awareness and self-efficacy. It covers how to feel good and be happy, and how to take care of your self.
Because of the nature of the illness, it’s important to be self-aware. You know, it’s not an illness that you’re ill with, it’s a disease. If you’ve ever been ill with a disease, you know when your mind starts to wander. You take care of yourself and you’re well upon your own track. If you don’t have a plan, you don’t really understand why.
This is a very important part of self-awareness and self-efficacy. It is because while you may know that youre sick, it is completely normal for you to not know why. For example, if you have a cold and go to the doctor for a checkup, your doctor may not mention it because he doesnt believe that its a disease. In the same way, if youve ever woken up depressed, you may have no idea why.
If youre not a doctor, you dont know what youre sick of.
I’m a doctor, and there is a great deal of confusion in the medical community about how health can relate to self-awareness and self-efficacy. It’s not just about physical symptoms and conditions. It is about how our thoughts and beliefs affect our physical health—our mental, emotional, and spiritual health.
