Can You Overthink Your Health?

Can You Overthink Your Health?

It's ironic when you find 10,000 spoons and all you need is a knife, or why it's a pain in the butt to meet the guy of your dreams…and then meet his beautiful wife. What about when you are the picture of health, you play by all of the rules, and you still end up with a rare bacterial illness?

That's what happened when a bunch of Illinois health department workers gathered for an office Christmas party and became sick from a contaminated ham. Talk about irony.

This story has me thinking about whether or not we can overthink the less-than-healthy aspects of our lives. For example, since I follow the health and fitness world, I wake up each day thinking, "What is the healthiest thing I can eat for breakfast? I really want a bagel, but I know the greens drink and oatmeal is healthier."  It continues like that through lunch, dinner and planning my daily exercise. I don't always make the right decision but sometimes I find myself just having way too much internal conversation on the subject of health.

Of course, living a healthy lifestyle can be a good thing, since it helps to prevent illness, build strength and extend your life. But when we consider people like the Illinois health workers—people who think every day about how to prevent illness and the spread of disease—it can make us reconsider. Not too much, but just enough to let us know that constant think, think, thinking about diet and exercise does not translate into perfect health.

I want to know: Does knowing that it's OK to ease up on your health make life easier? Do you agree that diligence to your health is necessary, but it's OK to slip up every now and then, too?

"You only live once." So, you have to decide just how YOU want to live! I feel like I have struck a balance between healthy and indulging. I let myself have the chicken fingers, but I don't let myself have them everyday.
