It is utopian to expect that

It is utopian to expect that one will not ever have physical discomfort of any kind . For me , being well/healthy is being able to go about my business without undue physical discomfort . I go with Dr. Hadler's view that health/wellness is " the ability to cope with all these common physical problems without transforming oneself from person to patient " . I believe that it is easier on the nerves ( and the pocket ) to adopt a firefighting approach to health - tackling health issues as and when they arise rather than trying to pre-empt health problems that might never have arisen . Finally , true wellness in my opinion is a sense of well-being : a feeling of happiness at being alive ; in having good habits and working towards ones goals .
