Confucius once said, ‘A healthy man wants a thousand things, a sick man only wants one thing’. A sick person only has one burning desire – to become healthy again.
The word ‘disease’ hints at a lack of ease. Well being, then, is a feeling of ease – ease in breathing, in eating and digesting food, in climbing up staircases, in going for runs and in falling asleep.
A feeling of ease can be a compass. Whatever leaves you feeling at ease is usually good for you. When you have an easy-going day, try to find out why that is the case.
