Being well primarily means

Being well primarily means being emotionally and mentally stable, in addition to being physically fit. I believe an individual has the control of being healthy or not. The mind controls the body, after all, and not vice versa. With a strong and optimistic mind comes a healthy living habit such as getting exercise, getting enough sleep, and making healthy food choices. On the other hand, however, someone with an unstable mind with rocky emotions will have a hard time being motivated to work out, sleeping, and maintaing a healthy eating habit. Therefore, I believe that being "well" and "healthy" is a choice that every individual has to make, and that choice comes from the mind and how it decides to perceive life. Achieving wellness is maintaing a strong and optimistic mind.
