Pareto’s Principle: As applied to health=Most important 20% actions creates 80% of the health benefits.
Not a clinical day passes without the common theme of anxiety and frustration contributing to a patient’s diagnosis. Early in my medical career I recognized the undeniable fact–the mind is connected to the body. When anxiety and frustrations fester, illness closely follows.
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”–Jesus (Matthew 6:34)
Troubled Minds = Troubled Bodies
Learning to cope with life’s daily struggles plays a huge role in longevity and health. Ignoring stress and allowing worry about tomorrow, or what one cannot control, you WILL have greater health problems. Find inspiration where you can. Find muses that help you focus on the moment.
Applying Pareto’s Principle to health, Improve your health by improving your attitude and ability to focus on the present.
For better health, seek friends, organizations, and information that help you cultivate that ability. Avoid situations that create, exacerbate or perpetuate anxiety and frustration.
