Being Consistent—Being Healthy

Garden peony ... consistently beautiful

When it comes to healthy living, consistency is an important habit to cultivate.

Your body requires consistency just to stay alive:

  • Consistent food and water.
  • Consistent rest.
  • Consistent hygiene.
  • And then there are illness-preventing habits you can develop through consistency that help you thrive—a few of them are:

  • Eating a healthy diet.
  • Exercising in a healthy way.
  • Keeping your body’s energy strong and flowing.
  • (Traditionally, in the West we have not had a specific way of keeping the body’s energy strong and flowing, but we do now that acupuncture, Five Element diet & nutrition, Chinese medicinal herbs and Chi Kung are readily available in many places.)

    Consistency is the Way
    Practicing consistency is what the Japanese call ‘Do’ and the Chinese call ‘Tao’; both meaning “The Way.” And from an Oriental Medicine point of view, practicing consistency is “The Way of Health.”

    Healthy Consistency Prevents Illness
    When you treat your body with healthy consistency you’re putting yourself in a position where you can better prevent illness. This is the opposite of the mindset that says—implicitly or explicitly—”I’ll just deal with whatever comes up when it happens.”—a health plan fraught with potential surprises.

    Once we establish a consistent rhythm of healthy habits and attitudes we set a momentum in motion which carries us into a healthier, happier life.
