How is Craig Doss healthy?

Continue to believe in love.


 I know my idea of staying healthy may stray from others, but I believe the most important part of staying healthy is the absolute acceptance of a thing called love. And, yes I mean the love that can move mountains and the love that is a many splendid thing.

Now whether I am eating right and exercising to appeal to the sexes (my initial reasons) or to maintain my energy and waistline (vain reasoning) or to quell the onset of diabetes or high cholesterol (my current reason), falling in love speaks to all those conditions.

How amazing is it to have an experience where the blood is engorging every vain from that intimate kiss in the car. Those countless calories being consumed and released from dinner and dancing the other night. How about the peace of mind you receive when you know that your mate has called just to see how your day is going.

And just think about the stress you release (in all facets), but primarily the stress released when you finally realize that this person loves you for you. When you finally love you for you, how peaceful you sleep, how active you become and how you can emotionally benefit from a shoulder to cry on and an affirmation of your ideals.

Undoubtedly these things really only occur when someone has tickled your fancy, but I see being in love and allowing yourself to fall in love as such a catalyst to your overall well being.

Your piece of mind is your ultimate goal for health. Having your mind right can alleviate a lot of issues, both physical and mental, but when you fall in love. Oh when you fall in love. Those feeling are heightened and the benefits can be amazing. So whether it been 2 years or 10 years, continue to believe in love, because love (despite being on its own terms) still believes in you.
