Here's What Serious Wellness is All About

Image from Great Cartoons
Most folks think fitness starts and ends at the gym. And then they go out to the world and live their usual undisciplined lives. Although they're familiar with the idea that health and fitness is a lifestyle, they really don't know what that means.

It's like church. People do church on Sundays in a building with a cross they call "church." And then they leave it after service and live their "normal" lives in the world. Sunday is "church" day to them. They are familiar with the idea that church is actually people and church life should continue on other days (not just Sunday) even when they're in the world out there. But they don't really know what that means. And probably, some readers would find it odd that I mention church here when I'm talking about wellness. But it adds up.

Real wellness (and Choy's Cut wellness) is being well in every aspect of life. It's not just health and fitness. You cannot be really well if your marriage is a wreck or your family broken, for instance---even if you have the most muscular or sexy body on the planet. And definitely you cannot be well if your soul is going straight to hell.

Wellness is being well in life in all 6 aspects. You're well physically, mentally, emotionally, socially, spiritually and financially. That's what I call all-inclusive wellness. It's not necessary that you get them all perfect now. The vital thing is that you have balance in every aspect. Wellness means balance, as perfection also is.

It's important to be well the whole day. It's a lifestyle. While you're getting ready for work or business, traveling, eating, talking with friends or clients, relaxing, watching a movie, posting on Facebook or Instagram, shopping, driving, cooking, napping, etc. you should be enjoying wellness.

Here's how I easily keep fit. Click here.

For instance, I'm talking to my boss and he's giving me a hard time, requiring a lot and burdening me with quotas and deadlines. Though that's stressing me, I should be well. I'm stuck in heavy traffic, being immobile on the same spot for hours and getting late for appointments, I should be well. No matter what the situation is (especially if you're in adverse situations) wellness should still reign.

This is a powerful wellness verse:
I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me. [Philippians 4.11-13]
Wellness is being content. But it's also the ability to "do all things." You cannot be really "well" if you're not content. Contentment is a vital life lesson that will keep you well all day, every day throughout life. But it doesn't mean you stop being better. Wellness is also reaching your full potentials by "doing all things." And in Choy's Cut wellness, this is possible only through Christ who strengthens.

Your full potential with patience, for instance. You face problems and challenges with kindness, understanding and a broad mind. You train yourself to keep cool and peaceful amid crisis. That training includes a healthy diet and regular workouts to help ensure you have normal blood pressure (so you can control your anger), mental and emotional health to understand things with maturity, and spiritual health for empowerment from God.

Now, you can more easily get all the above if you have financial health to buy the best health supplements, quality reading materials and other things that can help you achieve them.

Wellness is not just what you find in gyms, spas or wellness centers. It's what you find in life.

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…

Both Laziness and Busyness Make You Fat?

Well, it's a combination of laziness, busyness and technology. In your laziness you relegate all chores to technology in the guise of busyness. Instead of manually washing your clothes, for instance, you buy a washing machine because you say you are too busy to do it yourself.

When I was in high school and college, not only did I do manual laundry, I also used an old-fashioned water pump for it. Since we had the water pump in the backyard, my dad said using it instead of turning on the faucet would save us lots of money on our water bill. So I did that for years. No wonder I didn't get fat even if I ate a lot.



Metabolism? Well, it helped some, but I also got easily overweight when I ate too much. There was a time when I gained weight so that my face doubled in size (no, I think it tripled). It was the time when I did nothing but man our small retail store where I ate most of the food items being sold.

Here's another example. You use the elevator or escalator even if you&#…
