What does it mean to be healthy? We usually think of the physical aspects of health first. A perfect body. The imagery that bombards us daily illustrates healthy as thin. As tanned. Flashing a blinding white smile. Tossing back thick, glossy hair. But this is merely marketing. Health isn’t based in appearance. And it isn’t limited to our physicality.
