Everyone would say that health is the most important thing in life. Yes, I totally agree especially these days. I hope to be very healthy and strong so that I never catch a cold and so I would say that I am never sick. I even want to have a body like Angelina Jolie :) In my eyes, she is not just a beautiful woman, but healthy! However, all of these are jsut a dream for me these days.
I take a pill almost everyday because of serious indigestion and drink a Chinese medicine for my immunity enforcement. I also get rehap therapy for my backache caused by a car accident that happened 2 years ago. I think I spend too much on that.
My health wasn't bad from my birth. When I was little, I was a very healthy child even selected for a relay race, 6 years in a row during my elementary years. The problem started from when I entered high school. Korean high schools give lots stress to students because of college enterance exam. My stomach began to cause me problems like indigestion, nausea and vomiting from my teen years. But still, I was OK until my 20's. But starting from my 30's, it happened more often and all of my stress showed up as body aches and stomach aches. Last September, I ate only porridge once a day, but I still suffered from a stomach ache.
I believe that all my problems are from stress caused by my too sensitive personality, but since we don't know what lies ahead in the future, we shouldn't be so caught up with trivial things. Then we don't need to be afraid of our ambiguous future.
Now, I try not to give myself a time limit, not always do things perfectly, not be disappointed of little things. Rather, I am trying to be general, insensitive, imperfect and broad-minded. I will try to enjoy each day: when I am confronted by stressful situation, I will try to change my attitude to look on the bright side, and give real freedom to my mind. This may be the best way for me to have a healthy life in the future. There will be unexpected serendipity for me including having a baby if I try these things first.
